While at work the internet can either be a hindrance or the best thing ever invented. I regularly swing between the two.
If I’m tired, not busy, too busy, annoyed and/or stressed it’s a joyous thing. If I’m all of the above and unfocused, it needs to be taken away, locked in a box and left in a cupboard under the stairs learn what it did wrong.
Keeping both of those positions in mind, here are my recommendations for the best tumblrs to keep you distracted at work (because Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Buzzfeed and the Daily Mail aren’t enough to keep you distracted and entertained).
1. RYANGOSLING VS PUPPY
This is awesomely cute. You’ll feel warm and fuzzy because of the puppies. Oh and because of Ryan. ryangoslingvspuppy.tumblr.com
2. ESTATE AGENTS
Welcome to the exploration of the best and most unbelievable headshots of Estate Agents. I can’t believe these are real people. I want to meet all of them. estateagents.tumblr.com/
3. SAD DESK LUNCH
Anyone who has ever regularly eaten lunch at their desk will understand what these people are going through. Before I worked in an office I didn’t think tuna and packed noodles were an appropriate lunch time meal. Oh how things change. sad-desk-lunch.tumblr.com
4. AWKWARD FAMILY PHOTOS
Tested by time, this is a winner that I’m pretty sure most of you will have heard of but is still worth checking it out. I prefer this more than the website awkardfamilyphotos.com because you get single photos rather than entire album. awkwardfamilyphotos.tumblr.com
5. THE ONION
Like news? Like comedy? This is perfect for you. Perfectly written, mostly short, satirical articles. theonion.tumblr.com
6. OOPS WRONG PERSON
Who doesn’t love messing wth people’s heads? Get your fix here. oopswrongpersons.tumblr.com
7. BEST AUTOCORRECT FAILS
I am happy to say that I have spent hours and hours reading this tumblr. Autocorrect has played with everyone at some point and this houses the best of the best. bestautocorrectfails.tumblr.com
8. PLEASE FIRE ME
For people who want to feel better about themselves. Or who want to vent about how much they hate their job. Either way this is a nice distraction from your job. pleasefireme.tumblr.com
9. BUZZFEED ANIMALS
Who doesn’t love looking at animals? And who doesn’t love the internet? Perfection in a blog. buzzfeedanimals.tumblr.com
10. THOUGHT CATALOG THOUGHTS
This is a collection of lots of different peoples’ thoughts. Ninety-eight percent of the time it’s a really good read. It gives you an unexpected insight into how people think. And because you don’t know them, getting that deep with has no consequences at all. thoughtcatalogthoughts.tumblr.com
