Day 24: Something You've Learned

I think over the course of our lives - my almost 17 years - we learn a lot of different things. I believe that I learn something new every day, and that I can't write them all into a short blog post.

  1. I've learned that 11th grade is a lot harder than 10th grade and takes a lot more time and energy. (Which would make sense, but I wasn't really thinking about that.)
  2. I've learned that I really do like Spring, Summer, and Fall better than Winter. Yes people, I know that it's only fall, but it is so chilly here this week, it feels like winter in the morning and I just don't like it. At all.
  3. I've learned that preparing for a trip to CO since September is hard! I am ready to go, go, go!!!! Only 3 days left.
I've learned that that doesn't seem like very many things, but I'm running out of ideas! Ha.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 23

Day 23: Favorite Vacation

I think EVERYONE is going to know what I'm going to post for this one. I don't even know why I'm posting this one! Ha.

If you don't know what my favorite vacation place is, you probably don't know much about me. Either, you haven't read my blog, or you're not my friend on facebook! LOL

I absolutely, positively LOVEEEEEEEEE Florida! Not just any place in Florida, but Disney World! It's my favorite place in the whole world! I love to go there, ride all the rides and meet all the characters. Yes, people, I am a little kid at heart. SO what? ;)

I also like Williamsburg, VA, but last time we were there, it was really, really hot. We were almost miserable. But it was still fun - but we liked to get inside the buildings - that, by the way were air conditioned, in Colonial Williamsburg, people - and get into the cool.

But really, I just like to go on vacations. I like to go places, and get out of our little town in Pennsylvania. :) I leave for CO in 4 days!!!!!!!! YAY. Okay, I am very excited.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 22

Day 22: Favorite City

I don't know that I have a favorite city. I have traveled all around the Eastern part of the USA . Oh, wait, yes, I do. I can't believe that I forgot about this one.

My favorite city is MOST DEFINITELY Orlando, Florida. I love Disney World, so I would definitely say this is my favorite place to be. It's warm, it's fun and Mickey Mouse is ALWAYS there! Where else can you go to see the real, full-size Mickey Mouse? - other than Disneyland and that's just not the same.

I was in Orlando in May - which was my 4th time there. We're going to be going back to Florida within the next two years, also. I love it there, especially when we go when it's winter in PA, and we go down to the warm, sometimes hot, Florida. Except, last time we were there in January, it was actually somewhat cold. Oh, well, it was still warmer than the negative 9 that was here while we were in the 40 and 50 degree weather there. :D

Anyways, Orlando is definitely my favorite.


I noticed that Katie @ Katie's Journey said that Denver, CO is her favorite city. Well, I'll be flying into the Denver Airport in exactly five days. :D Can't wait! I'll let you know how I like it, Katie! :D Though, truthfully, I probably won't see too much of the city.

Day 20: Nicknames

  1. Ash - mostly family, and closer friends call me Ash
  2. Ashers - one of my best friends came up with this one for me (Thanks Sammers! ;))
  3. Moose - this one is one of those that I'm not sure how it came about. Not my favorite of all my nicknames, but that's okay. The person who gave me this one I call Goose, so it all works out in the end.
  4. Ash-el-Ly - this one comes from little kids who have to sound out my name to say it.
  5. Ash-we - this one comes from both Ian and a little girl at church. :D I always ask her "Who am I again?" And she goes "Ash-We!" She acts so excited about it! Ha.
