Hello, I’m Ashley and welcome to my journal.


I’m a basic 30-something splitting my time between here and there. I spend most of my time overthinking, trying to fit in, and more or less searching for my place in this chaotic world.

I started dabbling in blogging when I moved to Japan during a hot, muggy summer and thought I’d bring my adventures to life for my family. To this day, I have no idea if any of them still read this, so it’s become a kind of platform on which I explore my emotions, frustrations, and experiences.

In short, it’s all a hot mess and, admit it, you’re here for the drama.
