I talk about myself a lot. But then again, this is the place to do so. This is MY blog.

On Twitter I am known as DCWorkingMommy. Why? Because I am a mommy who works in Washington, D.C.  Clever, no?

I don’t talk about the specifics of what I do, however I share some of the drama that I sometimes encounter.

  • Driving in DC makes me CRAZY! Trying to avoid all social media until my chill pill kicks in. #yeah #no
  • What kind of working professional never wears shoes at her desk and gives her toes wiggle-room? #thisgirl

There is a particular situation that I encounter on a daily basis in the office that I find too awkward to limit to only 140 characters: Co-worker A visits co-worker B’s cubicle to discuss something. Co-worker A notices co-worker B is on Pinterest.

If you work or have worked in an office setting, you know it is inevitable and almost totally impossible to restrict your use of the internet for work-related purposes ONLY. If the internet was intended to be a tool used for productivity they would have called it something different… like ‘a book.’

Browsing the internet during office hours; you know everybody does it, but it’s awkward getting caught.

Co-worker A pretends not to have noticed the great recipe co-worker B just pinned and pauses a moment to remember what it was that they wanted to talk about. Now all they can think about is Pinterest.

CAPTION: The future of social media looks good!

I imagine our heads are like tiny control centers. There is a large monitor at the front surrounded by computers, filing cabinets at the back, and tiny people running around with the all the information we have in our brains. Should I touch that hot flame? Nope, we have a file on that. Should I eat a piece of cheesecake? The stomach center reports yes.

Our little control center has priorities too that prevent us from doing tasks in an incorrect order; work operations come after Pinterest operations but before Facebook operations.

If you think I have put too much thought into this, you’re probably right.

If you fully agree with me, you are absolutely right!
