What is there to know exactly about Ashley? Well for starters, I appreciate the fact that you are reading this and really that you’re on this blog at all; Thank you! I am currently a junior at the University of Pittsburgh and I am in love with the area! For those of you who have not travelled through Pittsburgh, the creativity around here is explosive and there are so many cool areas to take a afternoon stroll through.
Originally I am from the south-central PA area between Gettysburg and Harrisburg. Certainly a change of scenery from where I am now! Growing up, I was very interested in fashion. For the longest time I bounced between career choices such as designer and stylist. This was, of course, after I had given up on the princess profession. However, since the age of about 14 I have wanted to write about it. I would love to work for Vogue (or it’s teen counterpart!) or Vanity Fair. My major in school is Communication and Rhetoric and I am also pursuing a certificate in Public and Professional Writing and a minor in U.S. History. I decided to start this blog after I came to school because I thought this would be a great way to constantly work on my writing. I figure the more I write the better I will become, right?
Now for the fun information! My favorite food is either Italian or Chinese, though I must say I was recently introduced to Indian food and found that quite yummy as well. I love listening to various types of music when I am working–as long as it sounds good I will listen to it. My weakness when it comes to shopping shoes, boots in particular. I have a distaste for flavored coffee; not iced but flavored hot coffee is disgusting! My favorite book to read is The Great Gatsby. My movie of choice changes often, so there is no straight answer there!
That’s about all I can think of to write about myself. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or tell me a little something about yourself. I love to get to know the readers of my blog!
