Who am I?
My name is Ashveena Singh, or as some of you may know me from Instagram, The Brown Eyed Ash.
To describe myself in a simple phrase; chunky, but funky. In a more in-depth look; a horribly clumsy, awkward, sarcastic, sensitive, always hungry, inappropriate joke maker who uses the phrase “That’s what she said” far too often. (Somebody call my third grade teacher and tell her I finally did it! I finally described myself in two sentences without looking like a deer caught in the headlights!)
Like most of you, I’m currently supposed to be studying, but here I am stretching the limits of whats left of my creativity and finally getting down to starting my blog once again. So let’s get into it, shall we?
I’m currently in the middle of my third year of Law at the University of The Free State, however in law wasn’t exactly where I wanted to be. My first passion is, and will always be medicine (p.s. I’m low-key a doctor). My initial plan was to move to the Mother City and pursue my passion there, but unfortunately I let go of an opportunity of a lifetime and well, here I am, trying my hardest to keep hold of what’s left of my sanity and soldier on to the finish line of the whirlwind course known as an LLB.
My life is pretty simple, most of my time is consumed unapologetically by campus and studying, but in the little I have left I’m usually with friends and family or snuggled up with a Harry Potter book looking for new theories and links (I am literally the biggest Potterhead you will ever meet, like Wingardium Leviof*ck you if you if you fight me on this). Going out is usually a mission for me mainly because it takes me about two hours to convince myself to get out of my pjs and actually get dressed and also because I’m not the most social person in the world. I’m not antisocial but I’m not social, my species is found smack dab in the middle, that makes sense right?
I’m an avid baker, face and kitchen (haha, geddit?), vaper, chef, animal lover and a huge supporter of the LGBT community. Oh, I’m a part-time unqualified life coach too! I love helping people, whether I know them or not.
On the less preppy side, I have a condition called GAD. To make a long story short, basically what this means is that I’m extremely anxious all the time even when there’s nothing to be anxious about. I’m also a tiny bit physically broken (slight spinal damage, a still recovering gas burnt wrist and a couple other things here and there), I flirted with death in a car crash on my 19th birthday and was mere millimeters away from losing my life. Lets just say two things happened that day when I woke up:
- I got a new appreciation for life
- I learnt that Accounting exams are detrimental to your health and well-being. Save your life and just skip the module itself.
Oh yeah, I blog about events, food, products and life in general too. Prior to this page it was on Instagram, but now thanks to the power of procrastination, I finally got my page sorted out as promised and I promise to try to be regular with my updates.
And that folks is pretty much it. The self-proclaimed hot mess known as Ashveena Singh in a nutshell and an overview of sorts of what to expect on my blog. I hope you stick around 🙂
