It’s official. I’ve taken my website down. One day I’ll put it back up but for now I can be found here : )
I thought I’d kick off my blog by telling you a little bit about myself so you have an idea of what to expect. Before I start you should know I’m not going to be giving away anything too personal and that everything I write is purely my own opinion!
Here we go…
Name: As I’m sure you can tell already from the name of my blog, my name is Ashleigh.
Where do I live: I’m not going to give away any specifics, but I will tell you that I live in England.
Relationship status: I have a boyfriend. We’ve been together for nearly 4 years and lived together for nearly 7 months.
Job: As I type I work in a herbal health shops. We sell vitamins and herbal medicines. I’m also a writer. A writer of film scripts to be precise. I don’t get paid for it yet, but I’m working towards it.
Religion: Well, I was christened CoE. I have kind of… mixed views. I believe there is a “high being” although who or what that is, I don’t know so I guess God is a good name. I don’t believe everything in the bible or go to church often but I don’t think that matters all that much. I am a big believer in the spiritual and life after death. I’m not one of those people that “claims” science is wrong, or evolution didn’t happen or anything like that though.
Attitude to religion: I think as long as you don’t use against people, and you don’t shove it in other peoples faces, or “abuse” other religions or anything like that, then religion is fine. Its when people get violent, and start using it that it causes problems.
Hobbies: I don’t know if I really have any genuine hobbies. I like to watch TV and films, read, write, I do crafts in my spare time… I don’t really think they are real hobbies. Maybe the crafts.
Favorite sports: I’m not really into sports. I like cricket, but more because a lot of my family play or have played.
Favorite foods: Mexican food – especially my Dads homemade fajitas. I love Christmas dinner, lasagna, risotto, egg sandwiches, and Dorset cereal muesli.
Ambitions: I want to write film scripts and maybe a even produce a few films. One day I’d like to even direct one or two. I also want to be happy. I want my life to be one that I can look back on one day and say it was a great.
Philosophy of life: Well, supposedly we only live once, so you should make it a good one. But try not start making it great to late in life. Yes we should make mistakes and learn from them, but try not to make too many big ones because you might not be able to undo them or make them right. You’re going to have to do things you don’t want to some of the time, but try and make up for those few things, and do things you want to do. Don’t bother with things that make you unhappy. And try to be good because what’s the point in making the world a bad a place?
My star sign is Sagittarius, and whilst I sometimes read things about star signs and just think “what a load of rubbish” but I don’t think its all stupid.
My parents are basically awesome.
I have 1 sister, who is older than me and getting married soon!
I have several best friends, who I love very much. They make my life brilliant.
My favorite colours are red, black and purple.
I have a few fears, although no full on phobias! I’m scared of intruders, spiders and death.
My favorite film: Well, I’m a HUGE film fan, I love films. Surprisingly I can pinpoint a my favorite though. Its Reservoir Dogs. I love it! Other favorites include Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill 1&2, Inglorious Basterds, Cabin in The Woods, Funny Face, Paris When it Sizzles and Rear Window.
I love to read. Right now I’m reading The Help. Recent books I’ve read include The Stand and 11/22/63. I’m big Stephen King fan, in fact my favorite novel is 11/22/63. I also hold an Empire Magazine subscription.
My favorite TV Shows – Buffy The Vampire Slayer is my most favorite show of all time, followed by One Tree Hill, Charmed and Life On Mars.
Music – Wow. That’s a hard one. I love music, but I’m not really into many current artists. My iPod has soo many different songs on it, and I know everyone says that but I really do! I guess I’m a punk at heart – my favorite band is The Sex Pistols. I love The Ramones, The Clash, and most stuff from 1985 and before. Bowie, T-Rex, Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers, Elvis, The Shangrilas, The Beatles, The Ritcheous Brothers, Queen… I also love Blink 182, Good Charlotte, Maroon 5, The Beautiful South, 3Oh3… there’s a lot.
So there you have it. A few small details about me. I’ll get onto the more interesting stuff next week. Maybe even tomorrow!
Thanks for reading 🙂
