Introducing myself seems slightly redundant considering how my name is plastered all over this blog, but the manners of southern hospitality that are coursing through my veins require me to do this:
Hi. I’m Ashlyn.
(Not that you didn’t probably already know that.)
Welcome to the personal musings of someone who is really bad at small talk.
That might not be a good immediate indicator of whether or not this blog will be worth your time to read, but it is a good summary of what happens here.
This site is meant to be an expression of the important things and the slightly-less-important-but-non-the-less-interesting we don’t normally talk about. This means you probably will not see any Pinterest worthy tutorials or Instagram-able DIY’s coming out of this brain.
We so quickly get wrapped up in what’s going on with outside world and have a tendency to sacrifice the meaningful things that make us individual for the sake of trends. Ultimately, the focus this site is authenticity to inspire you to go spread some of your unique genuineness in a world that is painfully shallow.
You are suitable.
You are competent.
You are aptly whoever it is that you’re supposed to be, so own it and use it.
How you do that is up to you. I just want to get the wheels turning.
Some Largely Irrelevant Facts About Me
I am currently in college. This means I’m in the unique and uncomfortable position of seeing the future of our world at their absolute worst. Every one is sleep deprived and surviving on nothing but pizza and RedBull. I am no exception: I’m fueled purely by coffee and indecisiveness.
Some of my favorite TV shows are The Blacklist, M.A.S.H., and House M.D.
I will listen to anything except rap and heavy metal rock.
I despise cheesy, teenage romance novels.
And, mostly to my own detriment, I am a bit of a perfectionist.
So that’s Aptly Ashlyn and some relatively useless information about the person who writes it.
I hope you enjoy it.
