Taking the Leap
Ah. There is nothing like finally committing to a long time goal and taking the first real steps of aspiration. I have been longing to create a blog for months now, but insecurities and a busy college schedule have always gotten in the way. I don't know what it was about today but I felt increasingly inspired and at last created "aspiring." I chose this title because I feel it best describes my current state of mind. I am in my third year of college and the questions about my plans after graduation have already found me. When asked this usually dreaded question I quickly become two things: excited and anxious. Excited because I am thrilled to finally have a focus for my career, but anxious because of the uncertainty of finding my way into it and having the opportunity to live out my aspirations. To put my life-long plan into one short, concise sentence...I want to work within the fashion industry. Whether that is using my business education for marketing campaigns, buying for a boutique or large department store, or whatever path I find my way along...all I know is that I want to work with what is in my eyes the most beautiful and far-reaching art form. So here I go! Taking my first step towards that dream...welcome to aspiring.
