Hey, y’all! My name is Morgan – I’m a 25 year old blogger who has chased my dreams all over 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 moved to New York to start an internship and ultimately the beginnings of career as a content marketer at an amazing tech company, 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.
In 2019 my world was rocked when I lost my grandpa, aka my biggest cheerleader and the strongest person I’ve ever met. He’d been encouraging me to leave my full-time job and freelance, saying I’d always regret not doing it when I was young. The week after he passed I put in my two weeks and haven’t looked back. Every day I wake up ready to work and make my writing dreams come true knowing that Papa Ed is looking down on me cheering me on.
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.
In June 2020 I got engaged at Amnicon Falls State Park in Wisconsin. It’s been a fun challenge to wedding plan during the pandemic, and I’m eager for things to blow over in time for our Fall 2021 wedding. (Fingers crossed!)
A few extra things you might not know about me: I am twenty-five years old, I’m a gemini vegetarian, I can’t sing or dance or play an instrument, 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.
