Bloggers Anonymous.

Leviana tagged me in a note called "Bloggers Anonymous." The rules are to introduce yourself, then tag three other people to do the same!

My name is Ashlee :)

I'm nineteen.

I'm from Ottawa (♥). I go to school in Toronto and am studying Media/Journalism.

I feel extremely privileged to a) be living in Canada, b) have the opportunity to study post-secondary, especially away from home, c) have an amazing family/boyfriend/group of friends among many other things.

I believe that everything happens for a reason. I don't dwell on regrets.

I love the idea of believing in God, but I'm not sure I do.. I'm weird.

I love everything about music.

I'm very emotional when it comes to romantic films (haha)

I'm afraid of clowns.

I'm also afraid to "grow up" and start a career, get married, start a family, etc. but I have a boy who makes me feel a lot better about it all :) ♥

I have a bucket list, and hope to be able to complete it before I'm 45.

I'm independent, compassionate and I like to give everybody at least one chance.

Now I don't know how to tag people, so I guess I will not be doing that! Haha.



I'm actually crying because I can't stop laughing at this. My roommates think I'm on crack, ahaha.

Doing homework at GH.

It was so nice! At around 4pm the sun was at the perfect angle for the rays to come in from the window on the ceiling and into my face. Also, notice the plant wall behind me. Love the plant wall ♥

(I obviously got bored of doing homework and decided to take a picture of myself instead..)

I believe I have issues..

Does anyone else forget to breathe sometimes?
I don't even have to be focused on anything really.. I kinda just forget. And I only remember when my heart starts beating really fast and I feel a little light headed.
I'm weird.

Anyways, two more days left of March. Then 25 days later, I get to go home for the summer!
I have six more assignments/essays to get through, then two exams.
Thankfully, this semester is coming to an end. I am so excited to be home and hopefully be working for the city while working on my tan. We shall see.

But yeah, not much is new in my life. I've been schooling it up. Pretty happy with the grades I've been getting, so that's always good :)

Had an amazing conversation with my boyfriend the other night that I don't think I will ever forget. It was super cute!
He's coming over after his meeting tonight, and we may be going downtown to do some urban exploration tomorrow morning.

I've been procrastinating for like two hours now, so maybe I should start doing some homework..

Last night was a good night :)

That is all ♥

This put a big smile on my face.

I want to grow old with you. ♥

Here is a post filled with random things that are going on in my life!

From now until the end of the year (last exam is on April 24th) I will be stressed. There's no getting around that.
I feel like I'm slowly drowning. But! I will get through it, and I will go home and be happy that it's summertime.

Anyways, I had an energy drink in class today, and I feel like it didn't catch up to me until about an hour ago. Then I drank 3 large glasses of water so I've been having to pee every fifteen minutes (too much information?)

I have to call my mom to confirm for sure, but I'm pretty sure I'm moving out of here on the 25th. Once summer is done (I don't even want to think about that), I will be moving into residence on August 18th, start my RA training on the 19th, then begin my job when everyone moves in on the 29th! (At least I'm pretty sure that's when the residents move in).

Regardless, I'm super excited! Kinda nervous, but that's okay :)

I just finished writing my persuasive speech on drinking & driving. It's really sad how many people don't realize that it's not okay to get behind the wheel while intoxicated because it kills people! Bleh.

Oh! And I got a new cell phone on Friday. My old one's speaker randomly stopped working, so I got the LG Banter, and it has a purple shell? exterior? cover? I don't know what to call it. But yeah, it's black & purple, and it's badass.

I'm gonna stop there because I have to pee again (go figure).

Post #100!

100th post! Finally!

Yesterday, I went to the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) with a Matt, Jeremiah, and a group of residents. It was really fun! The top level (Contemporary Art) was so cool. It's really neat to see that an art piece that may look so simple is actually quite complex and interesting. There was one exhibition where you walk into a really bright room. The walls were blank. We were confused, and quite blind. Then we read the art work's description and learnt that the lights that were hanging above were actually motion censored, and when you walk by, they would spin. It sounds so lame, but in reality, I think it was my favourite.

Once we got back, I helped my boyfriend move from one residence room to another one down the hall. It took a while, but it is done. The new room is right at the end of the noisiest hall in res. It's on the first floor, directly beside the main elevator. Let's just say that it was loud. I'm sure he'll/we'll get used to it eventually though.

Anyway, last night I realized something. Well, no, I already knew it - my boyfriend and I really are a perfect match. It just really showed yesterday. I won't get into detail, because I doubt anybody cares, but we're so supportive of one another and will do anything to help the other. We trust each other 100% and well, we're completely in love ♥ I love you Matthew :)

Oh, and he gave me his huge new Humber sweater - I love it.

So cool! Do it!


This past Friday, myself as well as my boyfriend and a few RAs went up to one of the RA's cottage in Burk's Falls for the weekend. It was amazing, to say the least. It was gorgeous outside for the entire weekend, we went snowmobiling on the lake, drank, and just relaxed. It was honestly exactly what I needed to keep me motivated for the rest of the school year (It probably wont last that long, but at least I'm motivated for the time being!)

I'm super excited for summer! Even though I have no idea what I'll be doing job-wise, I will be homework-free for four months, and at the end of August, I will be heading back to Toronto for a week of RA training! I'm excited! :)

All I have to do is get through this last month and a half of school, which will probably go by incredibly quickly anyway.

Also, it's starting to get really nice out, which means I will likely be in a good mood err'day!

Happiness is just outside my window.

Happiness isn't about how many dollars you have in your bank account.
Happiness is found in relationships, in achieving goals, in health, and most importantly: In appreciating life.

Even on the days that I'm not smiling, on the inside, I'm always happy.

I'm grateful that I have a supportive family, amazing friends, an incredible boyfriend.
I'm blessed to have food in the fridge, to have clothes on my body, to have a roof over my head.
I'm lucky that I have the opportunity to go to university.

I'm happy because I'm breathing.
Because I'm healthy.
Because I have two arms and two legs.
Because I can speak, hear, taste, feel, and see.

Too many people take things for granted.
Too many people fail to see how privileged they are.
Too many people are unhappy simply because they choose to see the negative in such a beautiful world.

This is how I feel (mind you, I'm not dizzy):


This reminds me of our relationship. ♥
