it's my birthday :)

That is right. It is my birthday! I am now 19 years old. Can you believe it?! I can't! I feel soooo much older than you young ones around the blogosphere! I guess I will just tell you all about myself.

My name is Ashley, but I'm prettttty sure you all know that by now. I live in Tacoma, Washington. Right now I attend Tacoma Community College where I intend on getting my Associates in Elementary Education. From there I will transfer to a university!

I loooove to read. Duh! Young adult fiction has always been a favorite. My mom is always telling me to broaden my mind in reading, by branching out. Sometimes I do, but I just love YA so incredibly much because I can relate.

I really enjoy writing. I actually have been working on a few "books" of my own, though none are any where near being finished. It is a goal of my to become a published author. When that happens, I will hold a contest. ;)

I loooove music. Soooo much. I listen to everthing--though I'm not big on country. I was a band geek, since 5th grade. I played the flute and piccolo. I play some guitar, but I'm not that good at it. I need to keep practicing!

My room is never clean. I always start it, but it never gets finished. I get distracted easily, and tend to find lost things.

I am a total Norwegian geek. It is now 10 years ago that I started attending Norwegian camp as a kid. I went for 7 years, and just this past summer I came back as a counselor. I loved it, and it helped me decide to be an elementary school teacher. I love all things Norwegian!

Lately I have been trying all sorts of energy drinks. It is quite interesting. Most of them taste the same. Haha

Well, if you want to know anything about me, I'd be happy to share! Just email me!
