My name is Ashleigh Simmons. A fifteen year old girl just over 5 foot. I live in a small town where everyone knows everyone and no secret stays a secret for long before the whole town is talking about it. My second home is my dance studio. I'm probably there more than I'm home. I love being on stage and the feeling of getting a platinum score on a routine you worked so hard on. I'm so much more of a subarb girl than a city girl, even though I'd rather be inside shopping than be outside...weird I guess? Summer is deffinately my favorite time of the year, besides Christmas. I love days spent on the beach or even just laying outside by your pool. Its two months devoted to having fun with friends and just relaxing and not having to stress about homework or tests. I am thankful for what I have and realize that there are people out there that have it wayy worse and would kill for a loving family and friends like I do. I've recently stated following the motto "fuck it im young" but not always am I that brave. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My insecurities are my biggest weakness. Sometimes I feel like I have no one who I can really depend on, no one that cares. When I look in the mirror I see a girl who isnt skinny enough, isnt pretty enough, isnt tall enough..never enough. I could name flaws left to right. I care way too much about what people think about me. I feel like I can't be myself around anyone. Im too scared about being judged that I literally change the way I act around different people so I fit in. The thing I hate most about myself is how I'm so shy. Maybe if I wasnt more people would know my real personality.
Family and friends are the two most important things in my life. As much as you sometimes can't stand them, you family will always be there for you. The saying "friends come and go, but family is forever" is so true. Someone that you call your bestfriend today, can be someone you call a bitch tomorrow. Although, the friends I have today, I wouldnt give up for anything. Friends will make you laugh and also be there for you when you cry. When it comes to friends dont believe in the term bestfriend, I believe in the term bestfriends. Bestfriends are the people you do stupid shit with and out come the best memories. You know your close when instead of commenting on eachothers pictures "your so pretty" you say "dayumm i'd tap that;)" You know your close when you own more of their clothes than your own. And finally you know your close when you can just sit down and talk for hours about everything and nothing.
I think music is one of the most powerful things in the world. It's the greatest escape and can cure any mood. I think that people who say rap is crap never listened to the lyrics and the story that was being told. If your asking what the songs that have to do with partying and smoking weed, and what that story is, well maybe those songs are just trying to tell you to live a little. Life is too short to take too seriously. Take risks. Make mistakes. Be wild. Have fun. Your young, take advantage of it.
