I don’t like introductions. I don’t like talking about me, me me. I’m really not worth talking about. Alas, here I am practicing my writing through a new adventure – sharing my thoughts and lessons learned with you. I wish heartily that I already knew you, that we could jump into posting rambles and alluding to hilarious insiders – but every story has a beginning, and although it may not be the highlight, it is a very necessary element:
|That is me in the midst of my favorite hobby: dreaming.|
|I do interestingly embarrassing things.|
Here I am, a high school girl. I call myself an eccentric, but am more of the typical adolescent then I would care to admit. A girl who is excited about life and writing about it too. A girl who’s dreams of traveling that marvelous map, come second to my direction and ultimate goal: to be a normal Christian living life through, by, and in my wonderful God and bestest friend.
So this is me, a journey. If you care to join my on my path to gaining Christ and (hopefully) traveling the world at the same time I welcome you for the ride. I’ve never been outside of America,** but am known to grab random books about Mozambique or Tanzania and read them through in my spare time. I take every chance I can to meet people from different countries and learn some of their language. One of my favorite “Travel Training” experiences is choosing a country and spending at least two weeks studying it, and then cooking a four to five course meal filled with traditional foods cooked as traditionally as possible.***

Even though I’ve dreamed so long ( and will continue to dream, don’t you worry about that) about traveling to foreign places someday. I realize that the most important journey, the longest one, the one full of the most cherishing memories and scariest adventures – has already started. That is the journey called life, and as a traveler in training I am learning to enjoy every moment of it.
So if you’d like to find out what life as a middle child in a homeschooling family of seven can be like,
read the ramblings of a teenage girl who likes to contemplate everything,
and watch how I train myself for my impending adventures abroad,
most of all if your curious to find out wether or not my dreams do come true – keep on reading.
And I’ll keep writing because this story is impending and of all the readers I find myself the most curious to find out how it ends…

* M could stand for mischief, or marvel, or Marieanne. I prefer not to reveal my middle name which I have kept since six grade as my very top secret identity.
** Okay, so I went to Canada when I was a baby. But that doesn’t count, because it was Canada, and I was a baby!
