What My Mind is Thinking When My Fingers Are Posting

By Beth Winze

Since I shamelessly Instagram on the daily, I thought it would be fun to point out my exact thoughts right before I hit the “post” button.  I think society tries to hard to make their social media a terrible mask to hide behind so why not poke a bit of fun.  And since it’s completely wrong to poke fun at other’s, why not my own.  Please enjoy a little light-hearted fun from one social media addict to another!

The Caption:

The master has finished // I rest my Sharpie markers

The Thought:

Everyone will be totally astounded that I used Sharpies to create this.  But what they don’t know is that the design is not originally mine.  The only thing that is mine are the hand cramps from three hours of pointless labor.  Art major?

The Caption:

As a writer it is so easy to get caught up in the work of writing when all I need to do is rekindle my romance with my pen and pages // ❤

The Thought:

Was it really worth arm sweeping the pile of crap off my desk onto the floor for that one picture?

The Caption:

Southern pride art // I mean come on, who doesn’t love the South?

The Thought:

The glitter that is falling on to my carpet right now is ridiculous.  I am not even a Southern native, but I have to find a way to “fake it until I make it”!

The Caption:

You are so pretty ❤ // my life consists of spending Target gift cards on writing equipment

The Thought:

The only reason I was able to get this was because of my Target gift card.  A $3 notebook and $7 pack of pens is a massive blow to the wallet when your in college.  Well, Instagram better know how #blessed I am for that extra $25!

The Caption:

Red, white, blue’s in the sky, summer’s in the air, and baby, Heaven’s in your eyes //

The Thought:

I’m thinking Lana del Rey lyrics for this one.  And how much longer must I hold?  This might just melt my face off.  I really hate the knowledge of how unpredictable this sparkler of death could really be.

The Thought:

I never knew Peacocks could smell so terrible.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder // Behold, it is beautiful

The Caption:

The writer’s life // 3 journals, 1 Jane Austen devotional, 1 desk inspiration, and one Bible reference read through // honestly feeling so blessed

The Thought:

They are all so perfectly pretty and I will probably never utilize them because I am too terrified about messing a brand new journal up. #smh

The Caption:

and upon the hills of Autumn, that are strewn with red and gold

The Thought:

I should have worn my skinnies today because they would have totally tied this picture together and this backpack on my shoulders is killing me.  Is anyone watching me?

The Caption:

A little sunset for your Tuesday //

The Thought:

I took this picture last week, I just forgot about it until now, so I will pass it off as a sunset today because the rain outside my dorm window is driving me INSANE.

Coffee, lights, and the beginnings of a new story >>>

The Thought:

Those people in the background totally killed the hipster vibe. #byeFelicia

The Caption:

Mountains at sunset are heaven

The thought:

I didn’t know that finding an angle out my window would be so difficult.  I hope my roommate doesn’t walk in on my little Instagram yoga session.

The Caption:

I’ll tell you my sins // you can sharpen your knife

The Thought:

Hozier definitely makes this make sense…..#sarcasm. Chin up, tilt head, pout lips….no, a little more, contrast drastically, make this black and white.  Voila!

Pulvis et umbra sumus (We are but dust and shadows)

The Thought:

Latin totally has this vibe of vintage knowledge that I absolutely do not obtain.

Blvck

The Thought:

Kmart employee hasn’t seen me yet.  Tug the tag so it’s out of sight!  $45.99 for these?!  I thought Kmart was where it was at with sales.  Am I Tumblr worthy yet?

Lessons learned from this post:

1. In my head I am more Tumblr then I really am

2. I use my // way too much

3. White frames really do complete the picture

4. I make over editing a thing — and it somehow works

5. And to wrap this post up, a shameless Instagram plug for myself: @beth_lynaea
