Hello, my name is Brianna.

Hello, my name is Brianna.

If you are an old friend, thank you for reading. If you are a new here, welcome.

Hello, my name is Brianna. And sometimes I loose my way.

A fourteen year old enters the world of blogging without any expectations. You write a few words and rejoice when your first post is published. It's new and exciting. And then you meet other bloggers, read other blogs and your expectations are raised.

I hate mediocre as much as I hate indecision.

Seriously. It drives me crazy and I would much rather not do anything at all than do it substandard.

This past year has been one hell of a year. Sorry, but there really is no other way to describe it. I have experienced greater levels or emotional and physical exhaustion and strain than I thought possible. And, honestly? When your life is just surviving day to day blogging is something you scoff at as a waste of time and the little bit of energy you have left.

Hello, my name is Brianna. And I expect perfection in my life.

But the crazy thing about blogging is this: it's not even real. Think about it for a while and you'll get what I mean. It's not concrete. It cannot be handled. It's words and pictures thrown into a vast void that none of us understand. I don't suggest arguing philosophy with me...my mother taught me everything I know about debating and I will talk you in circles until your head spins. :)

Hello, my name is Brianna. Welcome to my mediocre blog.

Because when you've been where I've been the past year...you realize somethings...especially arbitrary, not even real things...like blogging...don't have to be perfect. It's nice to have a place to be mediocre.

Hello, my name is Brianna.

Take heart.

Hope in the Lord.

And carry on.
