Ah, Instagram. The ultimate time-passer (or, if you prefer, time-waster) — a catered smorgasbord filled with pics and videos, memes, quotes, and selfies.

If you're like us, you've been on Instagram for years. And over those years, thousands of hashtags later, you've developed a system when it comes to thinking up your posts. A quote, a selfie, a pic with your friends, another quote, something funny, another selfie, a picture of your dog — you just get it. Instagram has become second nature to you by now.

Until you realize it hasn't.

With all this posting, sometimes thinking of clever captions gets a bit tricky. Over time, your favorite catchphrases wear thin, certain hashtags become irrelevant, and, of course, no one says that one thing anymore.

Obviously you, like everyone else, want to write cute captions for your selfies that are sure to set the social media world afire and garner you as many likes and comments as you can get, but sometimes, they right words are hard to come by.

If you ever find yourself looking for that perfect caption for those moments when you're really feeling yourself, you've come to the right place. We've got it going on!
