As a college student studying Fashion at Montclair State University that works in retail, I NEED to blog for the sake of documenting my talents and creative ideas. Everyday I discover something new about myself, what I wish to do in the future, and ways I need to take the next step. All too often I sit around and stare at my vision board, artwork, and past fashion illustrations figuring out a game plan for my career. Blogging gives me the drive and motivation to keep pursuing my dreams and not turn into a mindless workaholic that hates their job.
