I'm Still Here

Wow. So I guess I don't really know what has moved me away from this blog. 
At first I thought maybe I was getting my writing fix through my Houzz articles...but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it may be due to the fact that the internet has become soaked with blogs. and DIY. and thrifting. and repurposing. and inspiring. It's not the cool thing to do anymore. Everything is trendy. People have lost touch with their lives and are living vicariously through others. I'm not saying that's a bad thing-- sometimes it IS fun. But it's just kind of strange.

When I started Operation Paper Cut, blogs hadn't been around too terribly long at the time. Many people didn't know that the word "blog" even meant something. And honestly, that's what made me want to start one in the first place. I was young. I wanted to speak for my generation from a different standpoint than many 19 and 20 years olds seem to emit. It was thrilling.

But now, the luster is fading away. The pull to inspire is hardly existent. The spotlight of showing others what they are capable of has been taken away by sites like Pinterest.

I'm not saying I'm leaving. I'll still be around. And I do plan on posting what I've been up to over the past couple months. But I'll leave that for a different day.

For now, I'm going to enjoy my last day as a 26 year old and hang some artwork that I framed this morning.

Don't worry-- you'll be first to see it. Okay, maybe second. But you're definitely at the front of the line. Line leader. ;)
