Salutations, one and all! Welcome to Ashley in Wonderland!
My name is Ashley (duh), and I am a 30 year old apprentice funeral director/embalmer & cosmetologist living in the great state of South Carolina (I don’t follow college football, so don’t even ask). About me pages make me really uncomfortable, so I’ll just throw in some quick facts to get you caught up to speed.
I became a funeral director because of a childhood obsession with the movie My Girl (seriously) – I completed the funeral services program at Piedmont Technical College in August of 2015 and decided (at my graduation ceremony, naturally) that I need to learn to embalm, too – so I’m back to school again. Summer 2017, please come ASAP. Like, tomorrow.
I unapologetically wear a lot of makeup, live with my mother, brother, and three cats (Monroe, Binx, and Hedwig), go to Disney World kind of a lot, am undergoing treatment for bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety, and have a really scary obsession with Elton John. Like, really. He’s the bees knees. I also like to cross stitch, and if you ask nicely, I might make something for you.
I love music, photography, and writing, and I’m really looking forward to making my little corner of the web feel like home. But a slightly better home than the one I actually have, because my real one is always a mess. I’m kind of on the coolest journey of my life thus far, and I hope to share that journey with you all as I go.
If you’d like to get in touch with me, please don’t hesitate to comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (subject BLOG, please). Please also don’t expect a punctual reply, because I’m a terminal procrastinator – but I promise I’ll get there eventually. Thank you for reading!
