Paper and String is a blog focusing on creativity, building an independent outlook and creating positive change in your life.
When I was eighteen, I believed I had it all figured out. I had so many dreams about my future that I believed I could work hard on and bring to life. As the years passed, I slowly lost touch with my hopes and my ideals. The things that had really mattered to me at a young age slowly stopped being important. I became caught up in the stresses and worries of my life.
In the end, creativity, for me, became a means rather than an end. I think somehow I just built up in my mind an idea of what a creative lifestyle should or could give me, and it ceased being about making things. Everything became focused on the material things that I thought my music, writing and art could give me.
Fast forward. At twenty four, I realised that the time had come to change my life. To focus on the things I believed in. To create new standards of living. To become the person I knew I was capable of being.
I write about making things, believing in things and restarting your life when things get tough.
