The Long-Winded Introduction:
This year I got this crazy idea–“START A BLOG!” My mind would not give it a rest. “But,” I’d try to reason, “I have nothing to write!” So is the common dilemma of most writers. To be honest, “I have nothing to write!” is a subpar cop out. It isn’t that I don’t have material, I have too much! My mind is this endless chasm of thoughts that connect and intertwine with one another. My emotions run deep and latch onto these ideas which are then subsequently encompassed in ill-used logic. I have loads to write! It just may be nothing others would ever care to even indulge. If I have learned anything in my last 24 years of life it is this: I have two very prominent strengths. Persistence, and Brevity (brevity is obvs a joke). The mind won in the end.
If you’re in for the joy ride of your life, this blog probably isn’t for you. On the other hand, if you’re up to looking at life through a different lens on occasion, I may have something to offer. My name is Ashley Burdge. I am a woman, a teacher (by default), an eating disorder boxing champion, and a pretty dang proud Minnesotan Mormon who happens to have a borderline personality disorder. Woot. Bottom Line: Life is rough. But there are endless lessons to be learned and many perspectives to be had. There is such a thing as hope.
Caution: Now entering my mind. You’re Welcome.
