I know it's not a very impressive word, and all too often it's misunderstood- like a 16 year old girl, misunderstood. Usually people equate this word with less than stellar performance, a half-hearted try, only so-so.
I'm here to inform you that my word- to describe me is so much more than a job poorly done.
Literally it means half way up the mountain, it comes from the Latin mediocris. This word doesn't describe how far I have to go, or how much more I have to do. It tells how far I've come- halfway there- on my way to the top is better than standing at the bottom, looking up and refusing to try.
I am mediocre, hear me roar
