Welcome to From Ashy to Classy!
This blog is a part of my journey as I embark on the road to becoming an author. I named my blog From Ashy to Classy because of the parallel between the Notorious B.I.G. song Sky is the Limit and my struggle to fulfill my dreams. This blog highlights my opinions and ideas about various topics – from philosophy and relationships, to sports and politics.
I hope that the thoughts written on this blog will be amusing to you, help create dialogue and give you more insight into my mind. I’m not a cat who posts just to be posting. If I post it, I thought sharing it would be beneficial to both of us (yeah, I’m talking about you!)…
I hope you continue the journey with me.
