I’ve always been terrified of blogging. Probably because it involves so much white space just staring blankly, waiting to twist jumbled thoughts into incongruous public declarations. So here I am. Awesome.
All sarcasm aside, the things we’re most afraid of (or anxious at least) tend to be the things most worth the risk.
My name is Ashley, and I’m a college student in Kansas City. I’m going to school for marketing or something between business and graphic design, or maybe even something to do with computers. I started school because I was a stylist and massage therapist who was bored, unfulfilled, unchallenged, and unsatisfied. Being a stylist was one of my dreams since I was young, but it didn’t live up to hardly any of my expectations. So I started digging around in medical majors, seriously anything from physical therapy to neurology. I absolutely love science, the human body, health and nutrition… biochemistry even, but nothing quite fit. So I re-evaluated and decided that I wanted to emphasize my creative side. I’ve come to terms that the quickest way to sum all this up: I’m an entrepreneur.
I quit my job, switched majors, moved twice, and invested into starting my own business. All within the last 8 months. What was the most stressful part of all that? Starting this blog.
Just kidding 🙂
I actually fell in love with writing before I ever loved cosmetology or massage therapy. I’m pretty confident that I started writing before 4th grade. I’ve never produced any work, but I think there’s a seed in the back of my mind that would be delighted to make an impact in the world using my writing. I love linguistics and I hope I can further develop my skills. My ultimate desire and passion would be to help other people, and if I could create a virtual space that has the ability to be of use to others, I would be extremely content.
Until then, hopefully this will be bearable.
Happy Tuesday everyone 🙂
