About Ashley

HELLO & welcome

Please, take a seat and buckle in. Blogging is not really my ~thing~ so this is going to be an adventurous ride for all of us. I know that the time and money invested into my undergraduate education would tend to insinuate that my writing style should be academic and well-informed. That does not mean, however, that it has to be boring to read or tedious to write. I choose “boring” for y’all, my readers, since you are choosing to read this and “tedious” for myself as I am required to write this. It is my hope that we all get to enjoy the process.

One reason I want to incorporate humor in my writings this year is because, following the wisdom of my dear mother (the older I get the more I am realizing that she is usually right), “in some lines of work, we are faced with situations where we must either laugh or cry and it’s easier to get back to work after a good laugh than a hard cry.”

The sidebar widgets on my blog are cleverly enchanted by Hermione Granger to take you to other websites that detail the organizations I am associated with right now. I encourage you to check them out. Strategically, the YAV link leads directly to my personalized page where you can find a “Donate Now!” button if you feel so inclined to financially accompany me on this wild ride.
