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. Over the past few years, I’ve gawked at the bloggers and instagramers who have made a personal brand for themselves and their ability to inspire others while doing what they love. The idea of creating a blog has been juggling around in my head for quite some time now. Unfortunately, I 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. I pledge to give 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. I always imagined myself working with children one day. I knew that this career path would be both amazingly rewarding, and something I’d enjoy doing 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. 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 felt like 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 one day I too will 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
