My self-summary
If I do respond to you, it is because of a genuine interest in friendship or more. If I do not reply, do not take offense - Your message may get overlooked or I may just simply not be in a mood to talk. If you take offense to this, that's not a problem - forget me, simple as that.
As always this site is NOT a priority - never has been, never will be.

Name: Ashley
I have 3 young children. Oldest is started school last August.
I am currently working a full-time job at a plastic factory, building car parts.
I enjoy being outside, but often find myself indoors.
I enjoy good stories and movies - ones that motivate or inspire, ones that make me laugh or cry, ones that mean something somehow.
I love to write and listen to music.
I know what I want out of life.
Generally a happy person - I like myself and my life. There are very few things I'd change.
...And I think I may be an overachiever... I haven't met anyone that's answered as many questions on here as

Whatever else you'd be interested in knowing, just ask.
What I’m doing with my life
I was pursuing an associates degree in Accounting and Computer Systems Information, but recently switched to Computer Systems and Internetworking Technology. I wanted to become a CPA for a while and turn my savings into the beginning of a Realty firm that deals in low-income family housing, but I found myself unsatisfied with work itself. =/

Every day is spent building a better future for me and my children, but I enjoy downtime, a lot.

My downtime, when not spent with friends, is normally filled with me brainstorming or free-writing. Becoming a renown author has always been a dream of mine and I still actively pursue this as I have for the past 18 years.
I’m really good at
I try to excel in all things I attempt. I love a good challenge.

Puzzles, Games - RPGs being primary preference.
Finding solutions to various problems.
Cooking. I may not be a gourmet chef, but I enjoy fiddling around with different recipies and seeing smiles on satisfied faces.
Speaking my mind without offending the listeners unless I feel it is appropriate (and I have found it appropriate in the past).
Writing - for fun, for school, for work.
Salvaging a situation that didn't go as planned.
The first things people usually notice about me
You let me know and I'll make sure to inform the general population. I've never bothered to wonder let alone ask this.

So far, the response I've received for this is my smile. I'm rather pleased with that answer.

Six things I could never do without
Family & Friends (they're equally important)

Intellectual stimulation (conversation/debates, games (cards, board, and especially videogames) & Challenges


Mt. Dew (most pops are good, but you'll rarely see me drinking anything else)


Amazing food (lasagna, pot roast, Taco Bell, and my crutch - homemade biscuits and gravy)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In order:
My schedules
(how to get the most out of my day) and what to do when not busy

If you haven't realized this yet, I am a very open and honest person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Exhausted from a busy week, and normally looking to drink a beer or two with some good friends. Otherwise it is spent gaming, watching shows, reading, or writing.

My partying, if it happens (which is increasingly rare), is generally reserved for Saturdays or Mondays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Anything you want to know. I believe highly in honesty. Ask me, and I will add it to this section.

I realized because of this site that I have an extraordinarily big pet peeve with people regarding their feelings on same-sex relationships... If you are one of those people that feels girl-on-girl is okay, but guy-on-guy is wrong...
If you really want to think its wrong for a man to be gay... I have nothing left to say to you. Sorry, most were born this way and I would never want anyone to be less than honest with themselves. You say this for a religious reason? Tell me why its a sin when the being has no choice in his feelings. And if it was a religious thing... why is it okay for women? This really, really irritates me.
You should message me if
you feel a reason to want to get to know me better and you are an honest person. I will not waste your time with lies, I will only accept the same respect. If I get the impression you have not bothered to even skim what I've written in this bio, I most likely will not respond to you.

(To those of you who are getting impatient with me not replying back immediately or not having the time to read your messages...1) It's really off putting. 2. I have kids, I work, and I go to school full time. This site is not my priority.)
The two of us
