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?
