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

I’m a basic 30-something Las Vegas native currently living in Shizuoka, Japan. Most of my mental space is dedicated to overthinking, trying to fit in, and more or less searching for my place in this chaotic world.

I started dabbling in blogging when I made the move to Japan during the hot, muggy summer of 2016 and thought I’d bring my adventures to life for my friends and 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.
