Hey, y’all! My name is Morgan – I’m a 22 year old blogger who has chased my dreams all of the country, ultimately leading me to New York City and back home again.
I started Mostly Morgan from my freshman year dorm room – I was feeling lonely and overwhelmed and I wanted to find comfort in the community of online bloggers.
Through starting my blog my eyes were opened to the world. I realized that there was a world outside of the bubble I grew up in. I was in a space with some of the most incredible people I’ve ever met. People who blog for a living, travel the world, and make their own rules. Suddenly the formulaic college to degree to nine-five seemed a lot less appealing.
In the fall of 2015, I entered a very dark period where I was suffocating in depression and self-loathing. It was at this time I decided that I needed to take time off college to get my mental health under control.
And that’s when my life began.
It hasn’t been long since I left college, but if feels like another life all together. In that time I’ve moved to New York to start an internship and ultimately my career as a content marketer at an amazing tech company (ayyyy, Teachable!), I’ve started traveling across the United States, and I’ve made new friends that feel more like soulmates – people I’d have never met if I hadn’t began following my dreams.
I now consider myself a freedom chaser, and I never want to fall back into a cycle where I’m living my life for anyone but me. Up until this point I’d always done what was expected of me and I was afraid to make waves. Not anymore.
A few extra things you might not know about me: I am twenty-two years old, I’m a gemini vegetarian, I can’t sing or dance or play an instrument, I’m dating my high school sweetheart, I used to be a competitive runner, my number one dream is to be a mom, I am a great cook, I want to travel the world, I grew up with the Rock River in my backyard, s’mores are my favorite food, and I love to write.
Any questions? Feel free to ask!
Also my friend/favorite person, Desiree Sandlin, took all of the pictures of me. She is lovely and perfect.
