Everyday moments are made. Seconds tick by and minutes pass. Most of these moments become deeply important memories. Others are lost in the sea of inconsequentiality. You’re probably thinking well, of course. But let’s just dwell on this for a minute.
Think of the most important thing to you. Close your eyes and picture it in your mind. Well if you ask me what I saw, I’ll tell you writing and more importantly – art. This includes all of the inter-workings that fulfill the artistic side of this universe: music, artwork, fashion, literature, film and all of the other endless components. Everywhere I look I see things that inspire me to live and view the world differently. I have no doubt that my generation also sees these things – absorbs them wholeheartedly – and seeks to do more than accept them, but, rather, questions them. As a writer, I plan to do that and more.
So when I thought about WordPress, I remembered all of the times my friends and family had mentioned it as a voice and a platform. I finally decided that signing up was the best choice. When time came to name my blog, I thought about my generation of people and what living and writing means to them and I figured it out – it’s sensational.
Let’s take a step back and revel in the perfection of this word. This adjective, according to Merriam-Webster, means, “arousing or tending to arouse (as by lurid details) a quick, intense, and usually superficial interest, curiosity, or emotional reaction.” To me, there is no better way to describe millennials. We find countless ways to express ourselves and as years pass, we find art ever changing and evolving yet it consistently becomes faster, quicker, easier, more eye catching. That’s why I’ve decided to make a blog dedicated to not only observing our generation of sensation, but also questioning it.
I want to be able to say that I did not just see the trends and statements of the world and just nod as they passed, but expressed my opinion. So now I ask you to just glance at my participation in our generation of sensation.
