25 Things

(I stole this from Anne)
  1. I’m sensitive.  I take things to heart.  I can’t change it even though I’ve tried so hard to
  2. I have freckles on my lips, I think it makes me unique.
  3. I hate being labeled.  Even though I am girly, I don’t like when people create limits to what I can do.  If you say I can’t I’ll be the first to try to prove you wrong.  Even though I was in a sorority, it doesn’t mean I have no substance.  Please don’t label me until you get to know me.
  4. I lovelovelovelovelove to Volunteer.  I love to help others.  My heart hurts when I see struggling people or animals.  I want dearly to clean the birds from the oil spill (but unfortunately you have to own a hazmat suit).  I get teary-eyed when I see the SPCA commercials.  I cringe when I hear people say the word “retard.” 
  5. I don’t like mushy food.  Mashed potatoes, yogurt (unless it has granola), oatmeal, etc.  I don’t care how tasty it is, I can’t handle the texture.
  6. I have no filter, especially around those I’m very comfortable around.  It may be inappropriate, and I apologize if I’ve offended anyone.
  7. I don’t like coffee, and I don’t think I ever will.
  8. When considering actions and consequences, I live by the rule, “If you’d be ashamed to tell your grandma, don’t do it.”  I like to think my grandma would be proud of the things I do, not ashamed.
  9. I love lakes
  10. I wish I were more organized. 
  11. I want a pet chipmunk
  12. I love the oh-my-gosh-I-think-I-may-pee-my-pants type of laughing the most.
  13. My main goal in life is to be in a country music video.  Ambitious, I know.
  14. I found out recently that my friends think I’ll be the one to have 10 crazy little Ashley’s running around.  I think it’s funny and I LOVE that they think that of me!
  15. If I could live in the life of anyone for a day, I’d be a stripper or Russian Spy (…preferably the redhead Anna Chapman).
  16. I’ve wanted to help build an orphanage (or simply volunteer) in Africa since middle school.  It’s true.  Ask my mom.
  17. My nails are always uneven.  My pedicure is usually chipped.  I’m girly in an un-girly sort of way. 
  18. I have cankles.  Don’t judge.
  19. I have 2 beautiful little brothers (Keenan and fellow-redhead-Nathan), an older brother Matt, and an older sister Tara.  I also have a step-brother Bryce, and step-sister Jen. 
  20. I bought a house… and I’m having buyer’s remorse.  Can I give it back now?
  21. I feel lucky to have had my heart broken once, and to have used that experience to hopefully prevent another heartbreak with a wonderful boy.
  22. I never drank in high school.  Not once.  I was very naïve and thought alcohol was mean and scary.  Not to mention illegal and I’d probably get caught and grounded or arrested and put in prison with men who tried to taint me with their mean scary tattoos and bad breath.  I’ve learned a lot since then.
  23. I’m goofy, weird, rambunctious at times, and I show my emotions more than I’d like.
  24. In the sun my eyes almost turn green.
  25. I’m very shy at first and easily embarrassed.


  1. Kite! I didn't drink in high school either!

  2. easily embarrassed? bah!

  3. I've just installed iStripper, so I can have the best virtual strippers on my taskbar.
