I'm not going to lie, this blog has no direction! It's got a bit of art work, a bit of reflection, a bit of my life events and a hint of depth. Hopefully one day it will culminate into a mini diary for me to look back at.
Never Ignore a Gut Feeling - My Apartment
|Posted by ashlybauserman on October 16, 2012 at 12:30 AM||comments (21965)|
I just found this sketch that I made of my apartment the day that I saw it for the first time and where I imagined to put the furniture if it happened to become mine. The first moment I walked in I got that crazy "gut feeling" that only comes so often in your life which was telling me that this place was "the one." It took years of building credit and constantly working out my finances, a crazy amount of preparation to get everything in order to qualify for a loan, tons of researc...Read Full Post »

Blogging - Finding -the- Voice

I haven't written at all for the past few months as I've thought further about how much to share. There is a difference between being very open and being open minded and I've had to consider what I'm comfortable with.
I'm pretty sured I've decided what direction to take. Stay tuned
Top 10 Places I want to Visit

I've had the great fortune of having lived in 4 continents by the time I was 16 in environments that were completely unique from one another. I'm also lucky to have been able to travel more than the average person as well as spend an extensive amount of time in several locations. My parents did an amazing job choosing the right country during the right age range.
I was actually born in Alexandria, VA in the same house that I currently live in. Phil was bro...Read Full Post »
The Puke Story

If you don't like a good projectile vomitting story, I'd recommend that you stop reading right about now!
GOD - I wish I had pulled out my i-phone today to film the insanity that happened on my way to work, but I was too busy trying to make sure that I didn't join in during the hurling game and crash into someone else.
This morning Phil (my brother and best friend) was complaining that he didn't feel well and spent a little extra time in the toilet. W...Read Full Post »
Favorite Photograph 1/7
|Posted by ashlybauserman on January 10, 2012 at 5:50 PM||comments (33)|
The number question I keep getting ever since I began updating my website and am now blogging is:
How did you start doing photography?
The number 2 question is:
Which is your favorite photograph that you've taken and why?
Well, I started photography when I was in college during my 3rd year and then really became obsessed during the last year. I guess I was always "artistically" inclined and enjoyed drawing, dancing, mu...Read Full Post »

A few months ago I was lucky enough to go watch this documentary at George Washington University and get to meet the Director, Phil Grabsky. This documentary follows the life of a simple boy named Mir who's entire life is devastated and changed forever because of the war(s) in Afghanistan. It follow...Read Full Post »
Growth - It is the simple things that matter

Growing up with a father who's job is to consantly travel the world definitely leads you to having what I call "the itch." My genetic make up definitely doesn't help either as I definitely inherited the curiousity and drive from my father and the artistic and dedicated side from my mother. They are both in their 50's and still wake up extremely early and have rediculously productive days.
I have always been somebody who just couldn't sit still for too long thanks to both nat...Read Full Post »
How things have changed....
|Posted by ashlybauserman on January 4, 2012 at 5:05 PM||comments (3)|
The last time I wrote (and only time on this blog) was back in 2009. I was about to embark on an amazing and extremely difficult journey. It has been way over a year and so many things have changed, just as they should when you're in your early twenties and on a mission to discover who you are and take risks.
I moved to Guatemala for two rea...Read Full Post »
