Welcome, welcome everyone! Welcome to my blog, Ordinary Adventures. Thank you for stopping by, I am so excited to tell you about what I hope to create here.
My name is Brey and I am a nineteen year old, married, college graduate living in Northern Virginia. People have always said I was fast out of the gate and I have never let anything slow me down. I would consider myself a jack-of-all-trades, while never achieving greatness in my favorite disciplines, I have always given my best to everything I’ve tried. Earlier this year I felt a stirring. I had ticked off a major goal by graduating last December and I had surpassed a excoriating yet beautiful year. To mark my new year, my new beginning, I lost my tattoo virginity.
The peony. A symbol of a romance, prosperity, and good fortune. Who wouldn’t want all that? That is what I want this year to stand for. That is what I want my life to stand for. My marriage, my (hopeful) job, my happiness, those are my focal points this year. But to be honest with you all, during school, I always pushed myself so hard that I let that be an excuse to why my life only consisted of work, school, and Drew (my husband). I never allowed my interests to bloom and never dappled in many hobbies. Beyond that, I made a lot of mistakes and I learned a thing or two about how to make that work, school, and Drew aspects even better.
Now that I have my
worthless degree and job searching is sending me on the brink of insanity, I have decided that its not enough to just hope for a change. To just ‘say’ my life is evolving. Getting a tattoo symbolizing my desire to change did not magically change anything. Since school ended in December, job applications and homework-less nights have given me time to reflect on how I want my life to start turning out. I cannot believe I am saying this, but Netflix binges and carbohydrates get old after a while. Who knew?
My mind, body, and heart are ready for a major wake up call.
My mind yearns for material and to express itself.
My body aches for movement and strength.
My heart lusts for a deeper connection and compromise.
I am ready for change. More importantly, I am ready to work for that change. And you’re going to help me. Well… this blog is going to help me and you guys will hopefully come along for the ride. This blog is entitled Ordinary Adventures and it is going to catalogue my change and my life. What I hope to accomplish is not extraordinary, but it will be a journey for me.
