Month in Review(s) - May 2019

May was another month of ups-and-downs.

Such is life - we just keep moving after all!

Things are starting to kind of improve depression-wise, if you squint and turn your head a bit, so... that's good!

No book reviews this month, sorry.

There is at least one coming in June though!

I've got it sorted already. It's a mini-review, but a review all the same!

And I finally have my Pinterest account up and running!!!! WOOO!!!!

I bit the bullet and contacted Pinterest Support, and the exchange of the next several days went something like this (paraphrased):

Me: *Explains problem*

Pinterest: Have you tried clearing the cache or using a different browser?

Me: Yes. Many times.

Pinterest: ...OK, it should be OK now.

Me: *Logs in*

Me: Nope

Pinterest: Have you tried clearing the cache or using a different browser?

Me: *takes deep breath* Yes. Many times.

Pinterest: *Passes the problem up the line*

Pinterest: Have you tried clearing the cache or using a different browser?

Me: Yes. Yes I have.

Pinterest: What account are you using? We can't find it.

Me: *now knows you ain't done sh** to help before now or you would've asked this to begin with*

Me: This one: *gives details*

Pinterest: Nope. That account doesn't exist. You're wrong.

Me: *Logs in with said account that apparently doesn't exist*

Me: ...Honestly, I don't know what to tell you.

Pinterest: *radio silence for a day or two*

Pinterest: OK, we hit some sh** with a baseball bat and it should be OK now.

...And it was!

So if you wanna check out each other's Pinterest boards, or just follow me 'cos ya love me *bats eyelashes* then you can follow me here.

I'm not gonna lie, it's essentially full of me getting distracted by nerd and Queer stuff, and pictures of cats. But then, isn't that what the Internet's for? ;)

  1. Sometimes dealing with customer service can be a frustrating thing! Whenever I have an issue with blogger I just count on having to deal with it myself because google is no help!

    1. Ha, why do you think I waited many months before contacting support? It was only when it became obvious it wasn't gonna fix itself! Lol.

  2. Haha, sorry about your Pinterest problems. That’s really annoying! I followed you, though. I hope you’re having a great June!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!
