I Enjoy Minecraft Now!

So I’ve recently started actually playing Minecraft and I absolutely love it!   Austin has a 1.13.1 Test Server up for his sponsors and it has been so much fun playing and building with everyone!   My first build that I did was a beach house! It’s the one build that I’m actually really proud of. It took me a couple of hours to do but I love it. I built kind of a little “vacation” area. There’s the beach house, an area with “beach chairs” and towels and umbrellas, a bar that I call Tiki Tavern that even has its own bartender, a volleyball court, and a DJ Booth!…

School

I’m sorry it’s taken me a MONTH to write a new blog. Oof! School has taken over my life. But I don’t regret it. I get frustrated and want to quit but my mama didn’t raise no quitter! I do regret taking 7 classes though. It’s so much work. Those of you in college or going to college soon, DON’T DO THAT TO YOURSELF! I somehow fit 4 semesters into 3 and just found out that this will be my last semester at my community college! 🙂   Now I’m looking at universities and figuring out how I’m going to pay for it and what I want to do as…

Let Me Be Clear…and then Ramble at the End

I was rereading my last post, “High Hopes”, and realized I probably sounded really…what’s the word?…oh, pathetic. Same with my “My (Nonexistent) Hobbies” post. I imagine some people are thinking, “Wow, Ash. Dependent on Austin, much? You’re not your own person.” ‘Cause I know that’s what I was thinking and I’m sure if my parents read these that they’d think the same. But I came to a realization. Let me explain.   Yes, I am my own person. I have my own goals and dreams and wants and needs just like anyone else. A lot of my time now has been going towards school and blogging, mainly school. Blogging has…

High Hopes

As most of y’all know, Panic! At The Disco is my absolute number one favorite band of all time. I literally know every word to every song on every album. I always keep up to date with them, too. When I saw that Brendon Urie had been working on Pray for the Wicked and released a release date, I was ecstatic. Unfortunately, my first concert I saw was theirs last year, The Death of a Bachelor tour. (Btw it was AMAZING). I wish I could’ve gone to their past concerts and experienced them live from beginning to present. I am happy to say that that tour was my first ever…

Update #1

I know I haven’t written a blog in like a week (so sorry btw). Austin and I have been super busy this week so I decided to give an update!   For starters, I started school! I’m taking 7 classes this semester, 4 on campus and 3 online. Yeah, I thought I was being slick by taking 3 online classes. I thought they’d be super easy! I was super wrong. They’re easy but they’re sooooo time consuming. Also, I’m taking public speaking online. I thought I wouldn’t have to do as many speeches, maybe just one big one. Nope! I have to do a few speeches and I HAVE to…

Nervous

I’m stressing I feel the need to address it I feel butterflies in my stomach wanting to break loose I can’t go back now, this is not an excuse The overall feeling of doubt and anxiousness Do I really want to do this? Is it worth this?     Through all of the distracting chit chat I can’t help but wonder “What if” this or “What if” that Is it worth this feeling that I can’t control? What is it that I want to make my goal?   I say I want to do this but I can’t shake the feeling of “Do I really?” It’s odd, you see ’cause…

Meeting Our First Fan

Story Time!   So Austin and I went to a convention at a place that was 30 minutes from where we live. Well, there’s this lovely lady named Erin who also happens to be a staff member on his discord and is part of the #SquidSquad who lives in that same city. Erin unexpectedly showed up and met up with us! It was nerve wrecking but also super cool! We were sitting outside for a bit waiting for this one panel to start and we turned around and she and I just so happened to make eye contact and we’re like “hey! I know you!” LOL We’ve seen each others…

The #SQUIDSQUAD

People, let me tell ya ’bout my beeeeeesstt friiieennddsss! I want to tell you about the most kindhearted, sweetest, most generous group of people I have ever met in my life. If there were anyone I’d want to be friends with, it’s these wonderful people. They are the amazing Squid Squad, Austin’s community.   I keep in touch with the Squid Squad through Austin’s sponsor discord. I am a staff member on there and it is an absolute honor to be a part of the community. They keep me company all day long when I’m bored and don’t have anything to do (or rather when I have tons of stuff…

My (Nonexistent) Hobbies

As much as I love that Austin is living out his dream of creating for living, sometimes it gets me down.   As a child, my parents never pushed me to “follow my dreams” or get into any sort of hobbies. So I don’t know what I could do for fun. I’ve tried cooking, I hate it. I’ve tried gaming, after a while I get to feeling nauseous (motion sickness) and I need glasses so everything is blurry. I’ve tried gardening, I don’t like being outside. I hate bugs and the heat. I’m not really a crafty person either.  (If y’all have any ideas, comment below or tell me what…

My Feelings Going Full Time

Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down. And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there. I’ll tell you all about me and the beginning struggles of Austin’s career. (I hope y’all get the reference…..gah I’m old)   Seriously though, when Austin quit Best Buy to do YouTube full time, it scared the mess out of me. I wasn’t sure what would happen. Would his channel take off? Would we be back in the financial hole we had just got ourselves out of? We didn’t know. My biggest fear was that we were going to suffer financially again. At that point…
