I am Pierce
6 letters, 1 syllable that people will use to define me. They take everything that they know about me and shove it into a box labeled Pierce. Now I like the name: it has a nice way of rolling off the tongue that I just feel good to say, however, I believe that the meaning behind the name could not be more contradictory to who I am. The history of my name comes from the French name Peter, which means rock or boulder. Both in the physical sense and in my personality I am nothing like a boulder. Whereas a boulder would stay still and not change, I am someone who is sickened by the thought of staying in the same place for the rest of my life. I like to adapt and change as I go. I have a wild imagination that even to this day will take me to wild places and the entire worlds that I have forged in my mind. I dream of being free and exploring the world, seeing the world through my own eyes. I want to find the secrets of the world in my own way. Unfortunately, I am only 15 as I am writing this, meaning that I do not have that freedom or the resources to explore the world as I so strongly desire. Until such time as I am able to venture into the world, I am bound to this stationary lifestyle. So while I’m here I will write about the adventures that I want to have one day. It also gives me a great opportunity to explore another great passion of mine. Performing. I have always been a very dramatic kid, not afraid to be weird and very energetic. So naturally, I ended up in the performing arts program at school. There I am free to sing and dance and act my heart out. That I one of the main reasons I joined this class, as I hope to one day write a play, and this class is all about writing it seemed like the logical next step for me. All of this stuff about me and this doesn’t even begin to describe me as a person. But to most people, I am simply the label. To almost everyone I meet, I am not an actor or a singer or an adventurer or a writer.
I am simply, Pierce.
