Omgod you guys — I haven’t blogged in a while. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED. I went to Edinburgh and saw where JK Rowling first starting writing Harry Potter. I went to Loch Lomond to go hiking up to a castle that ended up being a super disappointing size. I read 29034983275 books. I played Grand Theft Auto drunk (and kicked ASS I might add). And turned 24.
Yes you heard right. Ashley Josiah Marie Tenochtitlan Welling is 24. And it was a glorious day. I just woke up that morning and knew everything there was to know about everything in the world. Very similar to the moment when I crossed the stage at graduation … very similar. My friends (<-- I KNOW RIGHT??) took me shopping in city centre before going out to dinner and eating a cake that had enough calories to sustain the entire Mongolian nation for a good 27 years. Naturally it was gone in two days.
Since then I’ve read Everything is Illuminated (awesome), The Book of Night Women (awesome/morbidly depressing), An Elemental Thing ( … eh), The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (awesome), and now … Things are Happening (TBA). Also I’ve had my first piece of fiction workshopped (<-- Word says that’s not a word but I don’t believe that for a second … I mean, “Facebooking” is now considered a verb so I think the grammar gods will forgive me on this one). Anyways, that was a good time.
Now mind you, I’ve been edited before. I was a journalism major at Pepperdine for crap’s sake. But this is a whole new bag of beans — this is like, personal and shit. So needless to say I was a little nervous. After scanning it for errors the 28394th time, I timidly clicked the ‘submit’ button on the workshop form and watched as my little baby entered the cruel, cruel world of cyberspace. Of course, after I submitted it I noticed like three typos straight away but I mean whatever.
But all in all the whole class seemed to like it. It’s about a man slipping into insanity so how could they not right? Writers eat that shit UP.
Now let’s cut to random photographs.

The two best movies of all time ever
Oh and by the by, I just got over a cold I’ve had for like two weeks. And besides that love affair I had in 5th grade, that was the best two weeks of my life.
Just kidding. I didn’t have a love affair in 5th grade.
