MY Blog Idol

MY blog idol did a post of ten things not many people know about her. Since my birthday is in an hour and fifteen, I thought it'd be a fun treat. If you want to check her out, click HERE.

10. I have gotten rocks stuck in both MY head and MY knee.

9. I HATE shaving.. (If you know me, you probably caught on to that one by now. I know I complain.)

8. I am constantly buying movies. I love to be able to curl up in a blanket and watch a good flick.

7. I refurbish furniture. I like to sell it at consignment shops. It's been a while.

6. I have fractured MY left hip. Yes, like an old woman.

5. I have 5 siblings. MY family is THE coolest family. Ever. (This is a pretty well known fact, but it had to be said.)

4. I would marry Michael Buble in a heart beat and a half.

3. When it comes to friends, I prefer quality over quantity. I have definitely learned this through trial and error.

2. MY job is the best. I am the babysitter of 2 kids that I love and claim as MY own.

1. I'm not a natural redhead. (HAHAHAHA!! This one is a joke.)

1. (Real.) If I could go back and change any single event that has happened in MY life, I wouldn't. Every experience, every joy, and every sorrow have molded and shaped me into me. I am proud to be ME.

(Just to prove that they're cool.)

This is candid and I think it shows our personalities..


The End of the Beginning

Well, here I am, finding that MY first year of college is coming to an end. I'm not sad that the classes are ending or that I only have one final. I feel sadness only because MY roommates and I won't be together every day. You see, I've gotten very used to having these lovely ladies around me all the time. I learned about their character and I hold them in the highest regard. I learned who MY true friends are (twice) and they stood beside me. Sometimes, they even cried with me. Basically, I love these girls. (Karlee if you read this, you're included in roommates.)

Talysha has a hard time saying "I love you," but I don't care. I love her and I am very grateful to have her in my life for 6 months and I hope we can continue being friends. She made a decision to move up to UVU for the rest of her college career and I am proud of her for making the decision that is best for her.

Leila isn't leaving me completely. She'll be in Cedar all summer and all of next year. It has been quite the experience living with this one. We have opposite views on a lot of things, but we easily click and I will miss staying up 'til 1 chatting on my bathroom vanity.

College has been an interesting chapter in MY life and I am very excited to see what next year brings. Thanks to MY mom, MY dad, MY Mariah, and MY family/friends for the support and strength that I needed, but couldn't find on my own.

We celebrated Talysha's birthday with cake and trick candles!


Lovers and Haters

I'd like to take a few moments to express gratitude for the lovers and haters in MY life.


You're little people with little character. I do not like you, but I'm grateful for you. I learn so much about myself through you. You love to make outlandish claims and tell lies. You love to make me cry. Thanks. I am always able to pick myself up off the floor and move on. I don't understand the sick pleasure you get out of hurting me, but I guess I'll never understand your kind. Sure, I've said some mean things too, but never have I crossed the line like you have. A piece of advice to haters families, don't get involved. We're adults and we can handle our own problems. Haters, what makes you think I owe you anything? What makes you think I should give a dang? If you're out to hurt me, awesome. Love that. NOT. Girl of 2009, I learned so much about you as a person and I'm thankful that we aren't friends. Girl of 2010, completely shocking. It's really awesome when I think people care about me, but they don't. To all the people that try to bring me down, you're adversity and I WILL rise above you and move on. PEACE!


Oh how I love you dearly. You help me pick myself up and realize that the haters are just that, haters. You help me to realize that even though these people say horrible things about me doesn't make them true. Some of the best lovers in MY life are: MY mom: She's great and always on team Alex no matter what. If she sees MY fault in the issue, she tells me (Doesn't get involved like other mothers). MY sisters: truly loving and kind. They support me from a distance and I know I could call them crying whenever and they'd be there for me. MY Mariah: She's the best friend. She supports me and loves me. She forgives me when I make mistakes. I love her. She is a strong person and really pushes me to move on. I appreciate that. MY roommates: They are sweet. They don't gossip about MY drama. They don't spread it. They just listen and build me up. They're so kind. I love that I can talk to them and no one else will know. MY friends: For those of you who are good friends, thanks. You always make a point to let me know when lies are being spread out of the blue and you love me. What more can I ask for? Nothing.

Basically, if you're out to cause drama, don't bother coming around. Thanks.

Well, I'm obviously still young because I get really excited for MY birthday and I pick out a gift really early. This year I thought about asking for a brand new 16 GB iTouch. It would be so fun to have, but I ultimately decided to ask for a roundtrip flight to Cincinnati. Why Cincinnati? Because one of MY best friends lives there. I haven't seen her in 3 years. It seems so weird, because she lived with MY family and I for a semester during my sophomore year of high school. She became almost like a sister to me. Hopefully, MY parents will decide that a vacation would be an acceptable gift. I would like to stay for about 10 days in early May. Cross your fingers for me!

Quickly, I'd like to give a birthday shout out to MY little sister Kennedy. She turn 11 in one week. I sure love her. She's 11 going on 21, but she always keeps me laughing with her innocence. Although, we are 8 years apart, we are super close and I'm proud to have a sister that is so smart and sweet. I know she'll grow to be intelligent and faithful. I love you, Kennedy!

This is her and I on a road trip:

Smile lots and remember to pray in faith!

Late Night

I guess now is as good a time as any to blog. MY life has been hectic lately with lots of papers, tests and projects. I am looking forward to the opportunity of this Easter weekend. It's such a great time of the year to reflect on life, but mainly I think about MY Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so grateful to Him for His sacrifice that leads to MY eternal salvation. He suffered much pain and sorrow on MY behalf. I am very grateful to Him and I love Him so much.

I have been blessed recently to be a supporter to a great friend. This friend needs someone to stand by them and lift them up. This friend has such amazing faith and strength that I find myself in shock that I may be able to help them in some way. This person has become one of MY closest friends and one of the people I feel closest to. So to this friend, I love you. I hope I'm doing enough to help you in some way. I hope that we always remain friends and I pray that one day I may have same faith that you possess. Friend, I know you can do everything that you aspire to do and you will exceed your expectations for yourself.

I hope everyone reading this has a friend or family member they can lean on in times of need. Please realize that someone around you would be more than willing to help you carry your load when you struggle. I pray you find time to reflect on this Easter sunday. I pray that you're doing well and can find happiness each day.

Smile bigger and pray harder.
