Part 1 of 2:

^^^ 17 year old Alex ^^^
20 Things I Bet You Didn't Know About 20 Year Old Alex:

  1. Someone once told me I reminded them of Liz Lemon from the show 30 Rock MINUS the funny part. I think they were trying to insult me but it was actually one of the best compliments I have ever received since I look up to Liz Lemon (So what if she's a fiction character) for embracing who she really is and not caring what people think about her.
  2. In 8th grade we played the game of "I Have Never" on the first day of class. The game starts with each person holding up both hands and all the fingers. One by one everyone goes around and says things they have never done. For example, "I have never gone skiing!" And all those who have gone skiing have to put a finger down. The last person with the most fingers still up wins! And now I shall continue. Back in 8th grade... one of the 'I have never' comments was, "I have never peed in the shower." I didn't put my finger down even though, the truth is, I have peed in the shower. You know you all have to. Little kids do it all the time! And every single one of us has been a little kid at one time. So, to my social studies class of six years ago, I am sorry for lying.
  3. On the bus to Epcot there is a stretch of road that is extremely bumpy and no one really likes it... except for me. I think it's super fun to bounce up and down so it's always the highlight of my bus ride to work and I look forward to it every time I have a shift at Epcot.
  4. In 3rd grade I had a dream that Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) was my boyfriend. His rat, Scabbers, and my hamster, Ginny, were best friends and it all felt so real! When I woke up and realized we weren't actually dating, I cried.
  5. I used to work at Victoria's Secret and when I first started working there, I thought all the mannequins decked out in their 'PINK' attire looked so stupid. I mean, who wears PINK sweats, PINK shirts, PINK sweatshirts, PINK skivvies and even PINK socks? Can you say, 'trying to hard?' However, as I write this, every single piece of clothing I am wearing is PINK. I have become one of those girls.
  6. Last week my roommate and I went to Magic Kingdom and decided to splurge on lunch. We went to one of their 'nice' restaurants and the truth is that it wasn't very yummy food, but it was fun to have the characters from the 100 Acre Wood come to our table visit us. However, since it was so expensive, I probably shouldn't go grocery shopping for a while. But that's okay, I have enough food, it's just really random. For example, today for lunch I had, beef jerky, dried cranberries, and a rice krispy treat. What a meal. 
  7. I hate it when people ask me what I do at Walt Disney World because the truth is, there's not much I can say about it. I wish I could brag and tell them all the fun stories that have happened to me but in order to protect the integrity of Disney, I cannot. Therefore, when people ask me, I have to be rude and give one word answers. It's the pits because I'm not a rude person, I promise. 
  8. I have seen a couple R-rated movies in my lifetime. It's unfortunate, but true. But what's more unfortunate is that the R-rated movies I have seen have been huge disappointments! What a waste. Just stick to G-PG 13, Alex. C'mon! 
  9. My new roommates are from a place in the world that has very hot temperatures and so anything below 85 degrees is freezing cold to them. Because of this, they have the heat on ALL THE TIME. I have tried to compromise with them but either they don't understand me or they're not willing to settle (Truthfully, I'm not sure which one it is at the moment). Consequently, I wake up each morning super sweaty and gross, try to cool off by taking a cold shower, but when that doesn't work, I always end up not wearing a sweatshirt to work but since most bus rides are an hour long I'm always freezing cold by the time I make it to the parks.
  10. I shop at Walmart and so I will normally buy 'Great Value' brand if it's available. However, I have never and will never buy the 'Great Value' brand of my ketchup. Ketchup is probably my most favorite thing in the entire world and the 'Great Value' version of it isn't bad, but NOTHING will ever compare to HEINZ. Ever. It's basically heaven in a bottle. 


  1. LOL Funny thing about the ketchup, my nephew who is 3 LOVES ketchup. Like will eat it by the spoonful if he can. And he can tell the difference between Heinz and other brands and WILL NOT eat anything but Heinz.

  2. In my Family we've had some pretty serious ketchup taste tests and I think you would be surprised by the results...
