Firm opinions about absolutely nothing đŸŒž

Things seem bleak. Things ARE bleak. It seems like people are more divided, feelings are more hurt, anger and hate is permeating into every aspect of life. Personal lives, relationships, careers, friendships are being tested and pushed.. and after 2020, we kinda needed a break. As you know, or you should know, I refuse to comment/engage in political discussion, religious discussion, controversy of any kind really. This is because some of my most loved people are radically different than me, feel radically different than me, look radically different than me, love radically differently than me, and I still love them. Like.. a lot and for me, that’s the only thing I really need to know. Love harder, love better, love differently, love intentionally. My goal for 2021 is that everyone important to me feels seen, loved, and heard by me. Spewing hate and anger prohibits that. So.. no dice. 🤷🏻‍♀️

But… I was getting a little bummed that my promise to myself (and my loved ones) was preventing me from sharing opinions when it’s ALL THE RAGE on every social media platform. So, instead of anything political/controversial/hateful, I’m creating a list of super firm opinions I hold that effect absolutely no one and have no true detriment to society in the slightest. Enjoy.

1. Tupperware shouldn’t exist. I hate it; it’s disgusting, it’s smelly, it’s absolutely never clean again after the first use. 🤷🏻‍♀️ help me fight the war against Tupperware. Don’t even get me started on the lid situation. It’s just toxic.

2. Those goldfish, with the exposed brains, in pet stores.. are ridiculously frightening. They shouldn’t be exposed to children. They shouldn’t exist. Ferrets look like furry snakes and I am a little afraid of them also.

3. Rolling over on a squeaky dog toy in bed whilst in the middle of a deep sleep is the fur parent equivalent to the real parents rolling over on a child’s talking toy. The terror is the same, probably.

4. White queso is WAY better than yellow queso. But I can agree it can be mood dependent. In sum, queso is fucking bomb no matter what color. The same goes for enchiladas. It’s honestly magic.

5. I’m a huge advocate for finishing exactly 0 show series. I tried it once. Characters I loved died, the ending wasn’t what I expected, I was left hanging, overall… the ending didn’t live up to expectations. So.. I propose, we skip all endings. Watch a series until you don’t think you can handle another minute of the drama, then immediately turn it off, stop following, and forget the experience ever happened. I promise, your imagination won’t let you down – the show really might.

6. There are no slower drivers in the world than the drivers in Nebraska. I know, I know.. this probably coming off as controversial. It’s not, it’s FACT. As a Kansas Citian, I know how to drive at normal speeds. My fellow Kansas Citians, who have visited me, can all attest… Nebraskans are the SLOWEST. 🤷🏻‍♀️

7. Disney world is the Devil’s playground. I know, this may also be alienating. I’ll tell you more about it some other time, but just know.. it was the TRIP. FROM. HELL. I will never return, but good for all y’all that like it, I’m invested in your experience being better. But truly, everything on your trip could go absolutely wrong in every single way, shape, and form, and still be better than the TRIP. FROM. HELL.

8. Elephants should be household pets. For real. Everyone would be better if they had a baby pet elephant. Plus it could reduce carbon emissions. Slower, but reliable, transportation. Plus their memories are amazing. We all deserve one. 🐘

9. Bingo is the most fun game. Ever. Online bingo = a way of life. Live bingo? THE ANTICIPATION IS UNREAL. Bingo can be played at any age and enjoyed by every person. It’s America’s game, fight me about it!

10. Cheddar bites and mozzarella sticks are amazing ➡️ the phrase “cheese curd” is horrific and underserves the entire fried cheese industry. It’s a freaking crime.

11. Rappers/musicians shouldn’t be allowed to use cop sirens in their songs. It’s heart attack inducing if you are driving. I hate it and someone needs to make that a real life rule.

12. I don’t think it’s THAT offensive when people clap when the plane lands. I don’t get the hatred for the habit. Sometimes, you just gotta clap for joy. Sometimes you’ve been sitting for hours and you just need release energy somehow – clapping is that outlet. Don’t hate the expression. It’s probably better than like a freaking break dance competition or fist-fight.

13. Telephone calls need to stop. Like fully. It’s an ancient practice. Text me, message me, snap me, Facebook me. DO NOT CALL ME. Telephone calls desperately want to be extinct. I desperately want them to be extinct. Let’s make this the goal of 2021. Together, we can conquer the freaking telephone call NIGHTMARE.

14. Spring water tastes like fishbowl water. It’s gross.

15. Printers should literally NEVER be allowed to run out of ink and lightbulbs should never burn out. Who actually remembers either of those items when they go to the store? ABSOLUTELY NO ONE. Then.. BAM.. one day, in the middle of a school/work crisis, you’re suddenly reminded you’re out of the damn printer ink. And it’s midnight. And Walmart is closed. And life just sucks at that point. Printer ink and lightbulbs put people in bad moods. It’s a science.

16. We should make plastic dishware and silverware the new norm. Dishes are nasty. How lovely would it be if we could just use the plate for meal at hand and throw it away. No more soggy food. No more leftovers.

Honestly, with that… I’m circling back to the eradication of Tupperware. So I guess.. I stop.

Well... it's happening, due to high demand, and my monstrous ego, I've decided to blog. Simply put, I can't imagine who wouldN'T want to read my crazy antics and get to know the inner-workings of my semi-stable brain. Maybe, you'll laugh (hopefully, WITH me). Maybe you'll cry or maybe you'll get bored. It's really up to you what you take from this, all I can promise is brutal honesty, a heavy dose of sarcasm, some cuss words (I am who I am, sorry dad), and a little insanity. My mom has also recommended I share some of my recipes.. so maybe that too. The face behind the blog is... hard to put into words and words are "kinda" my thing. I am loud, I am outspoken, I am silly, I am sarcastic. I am wildly defensive of my loved ones. I have an anxious mind and I spend a LOT of time trying to keep my brain from spiraling into worst case scenarios. I work hard to keep my mind a happy, optimistic place, which I have come to realize is not my mind's natural habitat. I spend almost all my time with my three dogs: Lucy, Brantley, and Zeppelyn, who I am convinced are the greatest beings on the planet. I probably love my parents TOO much, but I am blessed to share a very close friendship with both and it is REALLY important to me that I never take that for granted. I love a boy, I have loved the same boy for years now, and I moved for him and honestly; home is where he is. Fine, his name is Matt and he is most definitely TAKEN, so back off ladies. I am a KC Native; a Jayhawk by choice, and an Omaha- Transplant. I spent my entire life telling everyone I was going to be a doctor, only to turn out to be an attorney in the scheme of things (I am proud of that, it is just not where I saw my life going). I am often convinced that I should have been born in a small town (John Cougar Mellencamp- Style) and any part of my heart not occupied by the dogs and Matt, is occupied by the late, but no less great Star, my horse/partner/best friend of 15 years. That's right, I am a former "Horse Hottie" and it is one of my favorite things about myself. Otherwise, I try to be a kind, generous, and a good person. Sometimes, I think I am misunderstood, and other times, I am understood a little too well. My face will tell you anything that I SOMEHOW manage to filter my mouth from saying. Oh, and I think I need all baby animals: zoo animals, farm animals, ALL the animals. That should pretty much wrap it up -- I'm Ashley; Enneagram: Whatever. In truth, I don't know what my mission is here. I don't foresee myself saving lives, talking people off the ledge, or providing sage, creative or original life advice. I am not a parent, so parenting-advice shall not be offered. I avoid controversial topics like the plague, I don't have the urge to lead you to the Lord (but he is pretty cool if you are open to the idea), and I have no idea on how to teach, craft, DIY, counsel, or even really advise. But I can repeat what I have learned, I can tell stories, and (sometimes) I can make people laugh. Writing makes me happy. I hope my writing makes you happy. So buckle up, strap in, glue your helmet to your damn head, empty your bladder and do whatever it is that you have to do to prepare for a ride.. a wild ride. A star-studded, bronc bucking, rodeo type of ride... my very favorite type. 💃🏼 Sunny daze ahead friends, probably. ❤️

  1. Tupperware I’m assuming the kids are right next to bobby pins and socks they all seem to be missing! Ashley, I couldn’t agree more. Now queso is good no matter what color. Although, I personally have a soft spot for white queso. I thouroughly enjoyed your blog! Made me laugh! I love the way you write! Keep at it:) Umm on behalf of phone people we kind of need to keep the lines open:) I like hearing your voice and many others. Hugs and love!
