Being The Unabridged Sass

First and foremost, I am writing this blog post on my new Macbook Pro, so I am excited af because of that.

I have had so many requests about my fishtail braid and my makeup on Snapchat (and from the pictures in this post!). I will share the tutorial and products on Thursday, I pinky promise. Anyways… on to the blog post!


I have a confession for all of you.

I envision various scenes in my future, and imagine them woven into various blog posts.

A post all about how I graduated from graduate school paired with what I wore for graduation. I imagine myself writing a post about wedding planning and things I wish I knew, and ultimately a post about my actual wedding. I see myself, posting pictures of my baby’s nursery after I obsessively decorate it and drag my husband to the hardware store. All these scenes in my life have one element that’s shared: these stories are all told on my blog.

I may not outwardly write about what’s going on in the most obvious way, but this blog is one hundred percent a chronicle of my life and the experiences I’ve had. Whether I write about getting scrubs for clinicals, or things I’ve learned from post-graduate life, it’s a reflection.

It’s crazy that I started all of this, ten months ago. Time flies by so fast and it’s crazy that I’ve almost been doing this for almost a year. I love rereading old posts and re-experiencing things, all over again. But also, I love how hopeful and excited this blog makes me for my future.

I think a lot about my blog and how it’s evolved so much since I first started blogging. I also think about how it’s going to change so much as I continue to live my life and have new experiences.

I also cannot help but think (and wonder) if my blog name will transcend time. The Unabridged Sass was a name that I found to be perfect and fun when I first started blogging. I was also, admittedly a lot more immature and uncontrollably sassy. It’s not that I don’t think that I’m no longer sassy (because I think I always will be, at least a small part) but it makes me wonder if years down the line, if this blog name will still be one I fully resonate with. I wonder if it’s too childish or if I will outgrow it when I’m a board certified MLS or someone’s mother.

I’m not always going to be twenty one and blogging about post-grad life, but I will always be Chrissey. It’s something I can’t help but think about.

Even right now, it seems like I am so much less sassy than I was when I first started. And sometimes, I feel like I’m slowly outgrowing my name. Sometimes, it’s perfect. I don’t know if I’ll hate it someday or if I will love it forever.


All I know is, right now it feels right. And maybe someday, it’ll be something else, or maybe it’ll never change. But I know that no matter what happens in life, that you guys and this blog will always be here. And for that, I am grateful.

I may not be The Unabridged Sass forever, but I will always be Chrissey.

How do you feel about your blog name? Do you think it will transcend time? Would you ever change it?

    1. Thank you so much, I’m glad you enjoyed it. I agree completely, I think the name mirrors where I’m at but I’ll always be the same person (although matured or more experienced in life!). I really like your blog name!

  2. This is a lovely post, Chrissey! I started blogging back in November, and I’m kind of glad– only because I think my name first me perfectly (The Married Cat Lady), and had I started sooner, I couldn’t have been her, as I’ve only been married since July. 😉 But like you said, as we grow, we inevitably change and learn things about ourselves. You may not always feel like you’re as sassy as when you started the blog, but like you said, you’ll always be YOU, and I’m sure that sassiness will always live in you– at least I hope so! 🙂

  3. Awh so lovely. And you are so pretty, Chrissey!
    I think the same way about life in general.
    I think about getting married, having kids, living in my dream home.
    Hopefully soon we will be blogging about it!
    Until then, we’re all here!
    Love the positive attitude!

    1. Thank you so much for the compliment, you are too sweet! Thanks for commenting and welcome to my blog! I’m glad I’m not the only one hahaha, I definitely think it’s so interesting to think about the future (and how it relates to blogging!)


  4. Hi Chrissey,

    I think the idea that your blog will stay with you and be a concrete reminder of your evolution as an individual as really cool! Some day, it will be interesting to go back and read what you wrote and reflect on how your values and interests have changed. Best of luck!

  5. Hello, a new reader here!
    I started my blog only last July, and I’m already wanting to change my blog name. I’m having mixed feelings about it as well, because now that I’m older and more mature, it’s a bit harder to still feel happy and enjoy my current blog.
    Great post!


  6. I relate a lot to the points about how you imagine your blog growing and evolving with you as you experience new things in life.
    As for my blog name, Wunms, that will never change. That’s why I picked it lol because it’s just my name shortened x

  7. I’ve been blogging for 1 year and 2 months to be exact and 8 months after I started I knew I had to rebrand and change my name. I started as Dear a d although I still like it, my views changed and I wanted to write About other things and not just makeup. After a long thought and struggle I rebranded and even changed platforms. was born, I love it and I don’t think I’ll ever change it. My loiny here is, don’t stress now about your blog name, when the time to change your namecomes, if it does, you’ll know. You’ll be happy if it’s truly what you want, plus I have to admitt it’s kind of exciting too.
