My name's Ashley and I'm a 21 year old living in New York. I'm currently an undergraduate majoring in Psychology, and double minoring in Counseling and GraphIc Design. My future lies ahead in the field of social work where I hope to aid those who feel hopless and trapped, much like I did growing up. My other passion is art, in any sense of the word through form and media. My ideal of a perfect life would be to do therapy at my own pace and being inspired and producing artwork through the conversations I have with people. As of now I would not consider myself an artist since I seldom create art pieces and when I do they are randomly timed and sporadic. However, this does not negate my desire to create when I please, and I have a deep aesthetic appreciation for other people's creations. I am both an introvert and an extrovert, as I enjoy solitary activities as much as going out on an adventure. I embrace unconventional concepts and the people alike, and am always looking for a challenge. I am quite perfectionistic by virtue but, a free spirit by nature. Everything about me is dual in a sense, as my personalty and emotions are bound by two extremes and I never feel a middle ground.

How is it living in NY?Is NY really the greatest city in the world?I'm planning to move cause i heard so many great things about the city!

dearbeautilation:

Living in NY is expensive. 

You move here and hear about how expensive it is and how much people have to struggle at times and you’re all

But at the end of the month after you pay your rent you look at your bank account and go 

Like seriously, your tiny ass apartment that is either located in a noisy area or you have noisy roommates or your walls are thin and you have a noisy neighbor

But I will say, the food is DOPE here

Just don’t read the Yelp reviews while you’re eating from that 24 hour place with no order minimum

It’s fun to meet people here! Most friendships you make will be like 

But if your friends live in another borough…

Because the subway is either the best thing or the WORST. When it comes on time and smells okay you’re all

Or sometimes you’ll see a homeless dude jacking off and a toxic waft of human filth singes your nostril hairs and you’re like

By the way- a lot of dudes will be all up on your shit when you’re trying to go about your day like

and you just be like

And keep walking. Walking is awesome in the city. It is good for stress relief, it’s free, and it tones your legs AND gets you places! For free!

But walking in a crowd in NYC will bring out the inner murderer in you

Tourists be like

And whenever someone on the street tries to stop you..

But at least the shopping (window or otherwise) is OFF THE HOOK

But no laundry machines or dishwashers in your apartment sucks

And so often you just reflect on this expensive, inconvenient, impersonal, competitive, dirty fucking city and you go

But you don’t follow through, because bodegas on the corner and free museums and central park during the summer and outside music shows and the diversity and possibility and history and energy just make you remember why you put up with the bitch goddess that is NYC.

But remember that when you get here, no matter how you dress or talk or know the subway, EVERYONE you meet will go

The GIF game is harder than I thought. I can barely keep up. Apparently I’m stepping on toes. But haters going hate and I’m going to GIF create!
