Welcome to Until the Very Trend, a fashion and lifestyle blog written by me, Morgan! As of this post going live I guess I can officially call myself a blogger, eek! This has been a long time coming for me, I’ve always gawked at the bloggers and instagramers who have made a personal brand for themselves and are inspiring others while doing what they love. The idea of creating a blog has been juggling around in my head for quite some time now but I’ve let self doubts and excuses hold me back from hitting the ground running, but I’m SO over that now. Although I still have some hesitations going into this and have no idea what I’m doing I’m not going to let that stop me from investing my all in this and giving whoever decides to read this the best I can possibly deliver. You may wonder what motivated me to (finally) get this blog off the ground, well, to share a little bit more about myself, I recently graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in psychology in hopes of working with children one day. I knew that this career path would be an amazingly rewarding one and something I’d want to do for the rest of my life, it seemed as if I had my whole life planned out at 17, however, this wasn’t the case. Although I loved learning about Psychology while I was in school it was like a switch flipped when I graduated, and I now felt this overwhelming sense of loss and confusion. I spent hours scrolling the pages of job listings but I couldn’t bring myself to click and apply for any. I thought, is this really what I want to do for the rest of my life, did I just waste fours years and thousands of dollars (ut-oh)!? My sense of security over the future turned into confusion and I almost felt as if I was settling on one thing without exploring other things I love, like fashion! So now I’m taking a chance and am excited to explore my place in the fashion and blogging world. I look forward to a journey where I can count on being constantly inspired by those I encounter and hope that I will one day be an inspiration to others.
MY HOPES FOR THE FUTURE
My intention is for this blog to reach the modern millennial women, a cohort which I believe to be an unstoppable force especially when we ban together. Although this will mainly be a fashion blog my goal is to also incorporate my journey and life with you so that we can learn from each other. I hope that through this blog readers will see me discover my place in this world. My ultimate dream is to be recognized as a figure in the fashion industry, to be a role model and trendsetter, to attend fashions weeks and, maybe one day, designs some beautiful wearable pieces of art that I can share with the world.
I appreciate and thank anyone who reads this and am happy to answer any questions if you’d like to leave them in the comment boxes below.
With love, Morgan
