Hello, I’m Ashley…


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

Shall we begin? Let’s start with an icebreaker.

What is your favorite color and why?

My favorite color is blue. Blue to me suppresses the volatile mess bubbling beneath the surface. It is calmness. It is feminine. It is everything I am and yet, it is everything I’m not.

Why did you start a blog?

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 look in from time to time, 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.

You can navigate my blog by clicking the menu button next to A Journal for Ashley and clicking on a category you’d like to explore.

Is there anything we should know about you?
