I would like to present a Meme. :D

Ekk! I was tagged in the most wonderful, fun meme thanks to Anita Howard. Since I cannot tag her in this, I'm going to take this time to tell you all how wonderful she is: WONERFUL! lol. Her posts are always inspriring to read, and her writing is beautiful. I cannot wait to read her book. :)  She is the one of the nicest people I will ever know, I am certain! The world needs more people like her. Both her and Cherie took up reading my blog the moment I began following them, and I cannot thank them enough for the support. So, make sure, (if you haven't already, which is highly unlikely) you check out Anita and Cherie's blog. They alwasy have great posts!

And now to begin this meme!!

Do you think you're hot?

hahaha. Unless you're talking heat-wise, that's not the word I like to use, I don't refer to myself as 'pretty', 'beautiful', or anything. My boyfriend does, and he's wonderful with lifting my self-esteem. So are my friends who are so wonderful with compliments. I only hope I can return half as many as they do! I'm not very confident with my who body situation, but I'm trying to learn to be comfortable with myself, because societies standards are silly! I try and focus on the beauty (hot is just not a cool word, haha) within people rather than the outside.

Upload a picture or wallpaper you are using at the moment.


When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Last night! But only chicken breasts w/out the bone. I hate chicken on the bone!

List the songs you listen to recently. 

lol....that's difficult..but you asked for it.

Scary Kids Scaring Kids- Degenerates
Red - Never Be the Same
Meg & Dia - Monster
Hopes Die Last - Stuck Inside My Head
Dashboard Confessional - Heaven Here
10 Years - Cast It Out
Paramore - I Caught Myself
NeverShoutNever - Dare4distance
Josh Groban - Hymen a l'Amour
Fall Out Boy - The Gold Standard

And that's my Ipod on Shuffle. lol. I have extreme tasts...screamo versus classic. Man.

What were you thinking as you were doing this?

Lost of things: I need to work on my book!! My room has too much in it! I can't wait to move back to college, I wanna see my wonderful boyfriend.

Do you have nicknames? 

Well, my boyfriend calls me a number of things like snowflake, princess, sweetness, sleeping beauty, honey bun, and whatever else he can make up. One time he called me his scientific princess? He's creative. Lots of people call me Ash. Mom calls me Marie, and little one, and some call me smiley. lol.

Tag 8 people:

(At some point I'll be able to tag Anita and Cherie both! But Alas, they both are doing this meme, lol!)

1. Caitlin Vincent
2. Sophie Li
3. Julie Musil
4. Dawne Webber
5. Steve Whibley
6. K.V. Briar
7. Jennifer Daiker
8. Jeana Watters

Who's listed at number 1?
Catlin Vincent - She doesn't know it, but I love her "A Word for Wednesday", and new words she posts I write down so I can use them later.

Say something about number 5.
He's super funny! His Can You Find the Lie post was epic and fun! I was totally wrong though!! Ninjas were just so outrageous it had to be true! And it almost was. :/ Darn. Also, since all the other things were true, he's seen some pretty awesome things! If you need cheering up, you should head on over to his blog!

How did you get to know number 3?

I followed her, and then she followed me. lol. I love reading her book reviews and posts like this one! :) She's creative, and her posts are always so thoughtful and positive.

How about number 4?
I don't know what it was about Dawne's blog when I found it, but I just loved it. Maybe the colors were soothing, lol. She also likes wine, which is a common like between us both. She manages both humorous and inspiring posts, I can just imagine her speaking in one of those warm, wise voices, lol. She also has a new idea for a book which she will call A Voice Among the Thorns, which I'm excited to hear more about! :)

Leave a message for number 6.
K.V.!! You're so pretty! And I love your blog--you can relate any occurrence in your life to writing. I also love all your book reviews and admire your ability to balance, reading, writing, and your family! If you lived near me, I could have a great workout buddy! I always seem to lose them. :/

Leave a lovey-dovey message for number 2.
To use her phrase, she's "awesome sauce", lol. She's so funny and super sweet! She also hasn't been posting since June 17 because she's getting her certificate in Paralegal, her absence makes me sad because all her posts are filled with so much life! It's like she manifests in her writing--and if she can manage that in a blog post, can you imagine a novel?! Amazing.

Do number 7 and number 8 have any similarities?
Hmm...they are both writers! And I love their blogs, and they are great followers. hehe. Jeana maintains several blogs, while Jen maintains a huge blog Monday-Friday so they both work very hard at that, and they are both amazing at it! :)

Look what I found!! -- Jeana's book on Amazon!! I'm getting it. lol.

Ahhh. I'm done!  I hope I did everyone justice. I must say, when you have to think about reasons why people are awesome, it's pretty just wanna me like, "Cause they're awesome!" cause it's such an unconscious feeling. Much like when I write, I can't think about it too much or I can't do it.  So, all of you guys are awesome--all my followers are!!

I wanted to take this time to sort of spotlight a blog!

AderuMoro Too Many Ambitions

She's a voice actress and a writer. In fact her novel, The Aviation Waltz, was originally a audio drama in which she acted. She's a recent graduate with a degree in Psychology. Like the title of her blog, her posts vary from book reviews, writing insights, and voice narrations she's done! It's wonderful to see her various talents in play.

And that's it for me today! :)
Ciao, Ashley


  1. Ashley, you and Aladdin are OMG Freakin' Super ADORABLE! I would like to pinch your cheeks, you're too cute for words. ;)

    Love your answers. :D

  2. Ditto everything our sparkly Cheri said above. :) And thanks for all of your sweet words, girlie. Wow, that book by Jeana is beautiful! I can't wait to get my kindle so I can buy it!

  3. Awww, thanks so much for including me in your fab list. You and your boyfriend are adorable together!

  4. I agree with Julie - you guys are too cute! :D I got tagged on this a while back, and I thought the chicken question was just the oddest thing. But I love odd things, so you know...

  5. I am so flattered that you tagged me in this - thank you! Oh, and the fact that you love my A Word for Wednesday posts made me feel all warm and lovey inside :) I'm so glad you like them.

    I'll be posting the meme on Monday, if you don't mind. I still have work to finish up for today!

  6. Also, what exactly does one do in a meme? I've never participated in one before, so I'm not familiar with the rules (or even if there are any). Enlighten me??

  7. Lol. You just acknowledge who tagged you, answer the questions I placed in bold, tag 8 people, then answer the questions about them in bold. After that, you notify those you tagged so they can continue it. ;)

    I typed this from my phone, so I hope it posts!

  8. Ashley, thank you so much! It has been wonderful getting to know you and about your writing on your blog. Thanks for mentioning my book--I really hope you like it!

  9. Aww, thanks everyone! :D I do love my Aladdin!!

    Jeana - I'm sure I will!! I can't wait to read it. :)
