I've never paid much attention to challenges of any sort but I want to expand my horizons and this new Article update looks pretty cool so, why not?

Day 1: An article about ME! (Awkward)

I feel like a student on the first couple of days of school. You know when the teacher randomly decides it'll be a good idea for everyone in the room to stand up, mention their name and then tell the class some random fact about themselves that's suppose to be interesting but usually goes like "Uh..I don't know. I play basketball so I guess that's cool." or something along those lines. Yeah. I thought that kind of thing ended when you got to college but my drama professor had us do it and the whole time I was so confused as to why because we all forget each others names 0.34 seconds later anyways.

Hey, hi, hello my name is Ashley and I'm a Ghanaian who was born and raised in the not so great US of A. Shout out to Trump and what not. I'm a 20 year old (21 in October woop woop!) college student. Studying journalism. I haven't decided exactly which branch but broadcast looks promising so we'll just go with that for now.

I love to read and write. It's only fitting am I right? I wouldn't say I talk very much. Especially if I don't know you all that well but when it comes to writing my brain kinda pukes out words at a hazardous speed. It's fine though because it gives me an outlet for the never ending thoughts that bounce around inside my head.

I also love to draw and sketch. Although I've kinda been in a slump lately. It's not something I can force myself to do but when it happens it happens. Usually when I'm upset or conflicted. That's when my best work is produced. I've been trying to test our different tools. Most of my work is done in pencil but I've been dabbling in the digital realm so we'll see how that goes I guess.

I can't do anything without music. It's kind of a problem. I listen to music when I write, when I read, when I'm doing my homework, when I'm in the car, when I'm cooking, when I'm in the shower, I even need music to fall asleep. Maybe it's because silence gives me too much thinking room? Who knows. I listen to literally every genre. Even country (don't come for me). Regardless of how much you may hate a genre I believe everyone can find at least one song in every genre that they can't help but like. I'm big on Indie, Alternative, Rock, Oldies, Pop and K-Pop ( I saw and hi-touched GOT7 in January and Mark winked at me and I practically died okay).

I have an unhealthy obsession with dark chocolate. It's so much better than milk chocolate in every sense. I've developed a sudden interest in cars. Not the exteriors but the interior ya know? Like the parts and such. What makes a car a car. It's probably because I have the worse luck with cars. Literally ask anyone who knows me aha. I'm very gradually trying to live a plant based life so wish me luck with that, or don't its up to you boo. I don't really have any strong reason as to why, I just feel it'll be better for my body and also I am lazy. I am so lazy that I don't want to put in the work it takes to actually chew meat. Just think about it, am I the only one who struggles to chew steak? It takes me a while and I'm already a slow eater so I'm not here for all of that lol. Fall/Autumn is my favorite season next to Winter but I live in FL so it's not really Winter. Which sucks because I've lived in areas where winter is an actual thing and I miss it terribly.

I'm not really sure what else to mention. If I go on this particular article will probably never end so I present you with the extremely basic facts mentioned above.

If you somehow found any of that interesting and plan on returning for the remaining 14 days of this challenge then I guess I'll see you around pal :) Au revior

Enjoy life today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come
