Day 30 - Who are you?

I'm Ashley Anderson
I'm fun loving, adventurous, caring, and happy. I have commitment issues and I fear routine. I make mistakes just like everyone else. I love my family. I'm middle nameless and proud of it. I'm random and bad at dancing, but I still do it anyways. I have the best friends I could ever ask for. My parents are the coolest, and my brother is the bomb!
I love people for who they are. I hate discrimination. I'm in love with life! Music keeps me sane, singing calms me down. I want to travel the world! I want to go to exotic places, meet exotic people, while doing exotic things! I seek new adventures everyday. I love mixing things up. I avoid confrontation, and I hate drama. I let people I love walk all over me, because somewhere, someday, I think they'll change. I'm becoming more confident, and motivated. I'm learning to say no. I don't have any tonsils or wisdom teeth. I have more health problems than the average person.
I love my blonde hair and hazel eyes. Girly things excite me. I love getting my hair, nails, and eyelashes done. I love make-up and fun hair styles. I like it when I get letters in the mail, even though it's usually junk. It makes me feel special. I'm the youngest grandchild on my mom's side. Did I mention I love my family?! I am PROUD to be an American. I'm trying to be the best person I can be, and so far, I think I'm doing alright.

I am Ashley Anderson.
And I'm never going to change, because I love who I am.

Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile

I really like this picture. Brings back good memories! I've had plenty of good times with my dad, and I know plenty more are to come!

Day 28 - A picture of you last year and now, how have you changed since then?



How have I changed?
Well, I have brown hair now. And it's longer.
Personal changes, I've started going to church, I'm more confident, motivated, and responsible. I don't care what people think of me anymore. I feel I'm ready to take on the world!

Day 27 - A picture of something you're afraid of

I couldn't really think of anything I'm afraid of. I mean, yeah spiders and snakes and all that junk. But practically everyone is afraid of those! I'm gonna share my phobia with you instead. And yes, it's a legit phobia. Kinda embarrassing, but I can't help it haha.



Ligyrophobia: It's a fear of loud noises. It's not a fear of turning up the stereo too loud, or going to concerts. It's a fear of very loud sudden booming sounds. Like thunder, a balloon popping, or a gun being shot. Pretty weird, right? I guess I've always been afraid of loud noises though. Ever since I was little. I can't watch fireworks, I have to leave the room when there are balloons being popped, and I have to wear ear plugs when I go shooting. Wanna know something even more weird? I love going shooting, The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday, and I absolutely love balloons on people's birthdays!



I can always laugh at myself when it comes to this because I know it's ridiculous! It's seriously like the dumbest thing ever! That's why I don't let it stop me really. I know noise can't hurt me, so I get over it most of the time. It still freaks me out though haha. All my friends know, and they think it's funny too. Whenever there's a thunderstorm. They'll text me and ask me if I'm hiding under my covers yet. (which half of the time I am) It's pretty great.

Day 26 - A picture of something that means a lot to you

In case I haven't shoved it in your faces enough, just thought I'd mention my family one more time. They don't just mean a lot to me, they mean the world to me. So yeah, they're a pretty big deal. NOTHING is more important.


Day 25 - Picture of yourself and a family member

My brother. I sure do like him.

Day 24- Your biggest pet peeve

PET NAMES. Yuck. I don't know why they bother me so much. They just do.
I don't care if other people use pet names, but when you use them on me, I HATE it. Like cookie lips, sweetheart, honey bear, whatever other lame name you can up with. It's gross! The number one pet name that bugs me is babe. Be original! Come on! I know pretty much everyone uses them, but I'm not everyone. The romantic crap grosses me out! I've mentioned this, I know, but it's true. I have a name, use it.

Day 23 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

SAMANTHA J. WOODCOX
She's been my friend for as long as I can remember. Like no joke. Her mom used to watch me at day care sometimes! We've been friends since age 4. She's pretty much the greatest. She's always making me laugh, and no matter what we do, we always have a good time. She's like the sister I've never had and she's always there for me. Here's to 15 years of friendship, Sam! Thanks for the good times!

Day 22 - A picture that confuses you

So I'm in Boston, right? And we're walking through this really old cemetery when...
I see some guy sleeping! What in the world! Who sleeps in a cemetery?!?
...My dad wouldn't let me go check his pulse.

Day 21 - A picture of something that makes you happy

My family makes me happy! Both sides and every single person! They're the best!







These are only a select few family members out of tons of wondeful people!
Just so you get the idea =]

Day 20 - A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel




Australia sounds superb to me.
I LOVE Australian accents, and the place looks beautiful!
I will go here before I die. I will!

Day 19 - A picture of someone you miss

R.I.P. Diane Pay

There's not a time when I think of my Aunt, that I don't miss her. I miss her like CRAZY. I would give ANYTHING for her to be back on this Earth with us.
Tragically about 6 years ago, my Aunt Diane took her own life. I can still remember the day it happened. Worst day of my life. (so far)
My Aunt was the best thing that has ever happened to me. She made anyone she was around feel like a rockstar. She always lit up the room. She loved her family so much. Her grandkids were the light of her life. She made everyone feel so, so loved.
I can remember how special she made me feel. Being that I was one of two nieces that she had, she was always spoiling and loving me. I have so many fantastic memories with my Aunt, and I wouldn't trade them for anything.
Diane,
I love you, and always have.
I miss you, but I know you're in a better place, and you're watching over all of us.
I can't wait until I can see you again.
I love you with all my heart!

Day 17 - Your favorite song

I have temporary favorites. Like right now, the two songs I'm obsessed with are "Love Like Woe" by The Ready Set and "Run Devil Run" by Kesha. My blog playlist is full of songs I've been obsessed with once upon a time. They're pretty fun. I like them =]
Hope you enjoy!

Day 16 - Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why

BEYONCE!
One, because she's amazing, and two, because she's amazing!!
I just love her. She's pretty, got a bomb voice, she's an awesome dancer, and she's got a lot of money. I just want to see what a day in the life of a celebrity is like, especially a celebrity with a voice like that. I wish I could sing that well!
Anywho, Beyonce is just amazing. I would love to be her for a day.
Sign me up!

Day 15 - A picture of something you want to do before you die



I want my own TV show before I die. Sooner than later would be nice. I'd like to still be young if I'm ever on TV.
I'm pretty sure my show would be awesome. Hey, I'd watch it.

Day 13 - A picture of something you hate

Fibromyalgia:
"Fibromyalgia is a common syndrome in which people experience chronic, body-wide pain and tender points in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues.
Fibromyalgia has also been linked to fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression, anxiety, and other symptoms."
This is the thing I hate the most. I was diagnosed when I was only 13 years old. Usually you don't get symptoms until your 20's. I'm the youngest case in my family. Yes, it runs in my family. Which means my kids will most likely get it.
I don't let Fibro stop me, but if I could stop it, that would be amazing. There's no cure for Fibromyalgia, and hardly anything helps. Little people realize the struggle that people with Fibromyalgia experience daily. It was just recently that doctors decided it was a real disease and problem. Before, it was just in our heads and it didn't exist. 
They're trying to find cures and treatments, but until then, all of us with this terrible disease have to fight through it and try our best to keep our heads up.


This is the only picture that I could find that sort of showed what Fibro is that didn't have naked diagrams of people.
