listen here...

So I started this blog in August basically out of boredom. I had nothing better to do until school was back in so I thought, 'Hey...write a blog and then you will become Internet famous like Lauren.' So this here blog was started...and I figured it would be around for like a week before I tired of it. No such luck. I freaking adore my blog, and I actually really enjoy posting on it most of the time...

Here is the deal my friends. I get anonymous comments from lamespice people (actually I am 99% sure the comments are coming from one person; the other 1% come from my friend Jen who refuses to make an account). There are certain fangirls who are taking me to task because of my 'off color humor' with my twitter friends. Would you all like to know what I have to say to THAT?!
.......

Yep, all I have to say is that. Well, that and there are no more anonymous comments allowed at this blog!

Moving on...I need to mansplain something to you all.

In case you didn't know, my name is Alexandria and this is MY blog...
Sometimes I wear glasses. Glasses that I sorta needed to read...but not really. Glasses that I feel make me look smart, and to be honest I mean I am pretty darn smart. However, on this blog I say made up words, abuse punctuation, and pay proper grammar no mind. Also, sometimes I buy glasses just because they are Dolce & Gabbana...

Sometimes when I go out to celebrate Jil's birthday I get drunk. For some reason when I get highly intoxicated I close my eyes A LOT. In order to see straight one eye has to be open while the other is closed...it is ridiculous...but also hilarious...

Sometimes I make really bad fashion choices (granted this picture is from when I was 18). Notice the hair...the WAY too heavy eye makeup...the french manicure, that had an airbrushed heart on them, my date. I can however be grateful that I did not have on a bright orange dress like the lady behind us...

Sometimes I think this picture of my niece holding my Grandpa's (EMPTY) beer can is funny...and the other times I think it is freaking hilarious....

Sometimes I try things even though I know I am not going to like them...such as camping. Yes, I went camping with Jil and her fam (only overnight, in a trailer, on the beach) and it was not awesome. However, I smiled and tried to have fun and therefore I ended up having fun! Also, sometimes I love a hoodie and jeans and a face that has NO makeup on it...actually most of the time that is true...

Sometimes if I feel like I am having a stellar hair/face day I will document it via my camera (this was NOT a good hair day...it was all about the face). Then when I get home and upload said photos onto my laptop...I realize that I wasn't having a 'hottness monster' day at all. I was having an 'If looks could kill I would light you on fire with my eyes' day...

Sometimes I love my best friend so much that I agreed to be her Maid of Honor at her wedding when we were 18, even though I strongly dislike weddings. But, I love her so I let her try to make my hair big and fabulous...just to make her happy...


Sometimes I say how much I dislike children and then I remember how much I love my niece. Srsly. This amazing 4 year old is my favorite person on this planet and I cannot even begin to express in words how much I love her. She is a brainwashed Democrat (or 'Democrack' as she says), she is beautiful, and wants to be a doctor...or the president when she grows up. She loves peace signs as well...

Sometimes I stand up for what I believe in...actually I always do that. I also respect that my beliefs are not in line with other peoples and that is okay. Sometimes I just have to do what I think is right, all while respecting what other people think is right, sometimes I am okay with that...sometimes I am not...

Sometimes...I make the. hottest. faces. ever. Jealous? Sometimes I make inappropriate jokes that are full of innuendo...sometimes I drink beer only from the bottle...sometimes I swear A LOT in real life, but for the sake of being a nice person AND respecting the people who read my blog I do NOT swear on here. Sometimes...I make TWSS jokes ALL day long. Sometimes the only person who actually calls me 'Alexandria' is my mom...or my older brothers when they are mad at me. Most of the time people call me Zander, Alex, Amie Amia, or Auntie Hammie. Sometimes I turn my head phones up really loud on my iPod while listening to musical soundtracks so I can sing and pretend that it is my ACTUAL voice. Sometimes...I make Vlog's (well I only made one) where I have no makeup on AND my hair isn't done...also I talk like a valley girl (no I am not linking to it because it is heinous).

There you have it folks...sometimes I do those things. But ALL of the time I am who am I. I do not apologize for it, because I am pretty darn happy with myself. If YOU do not like me...then please don't take the time to read my blog...it's cool.

To all of my lovely friends who have decided they do like me AND my blog, thank you! I heart you all something fierce!

amanda leeann said...

i pretty much love you for doing this.

sometimes...
i swear all the time. i guess i'm a hypocrite for not "being myself" in blog land.
i will admit that i have never been drunk, and proceed to tell you that i wish that weren't the case.
i think my glasses make me look super attractive. only to get home, and realize they don't.
sometimes, my clothes are hideous. and i try and pretend i don't care.
sometimes, TWSS jokes get me through the day.

& all the time, i love you!

If I wasn't already sure I loved you before, this post solidified it. Also, you are gorgeous! Maybe if/when we hang out at DL it will rub off on me plskthx. <3

I had specific thoughts as I read this but I can't remember any other than "Alexadria is awesome" so we'll leave it there.

lynninlove said...

Tell it! Love your blog, love your glasses. :) Keep on being always awesome alexandria!

Bitten Usagi said...

You're too cute! Love your blog!

Lisa (aka LadyWanderlust) said...

And sometimes, people need to mind their own business and let you design and create YOUR blog any way that you see fit for YOUR blog. I don't get people who lack the hutzpah to post without their identity. Either stand up and back up what you are saying or sit the hades down and shut up. PS I wanted to say this in a different fashion, but I wanted to respect your no cussing approach on this site. You go and run YOUR blog YOUR way!. :)

Just Jil said...

Well Put My Friend...Well Put!! That's why we love you!!

FYI, my word verif is Trany!! LOL

And also I totally don't know what TWSS means?!?!

MoreThanMyOwnLife said...

I heart this post. You are beautiful inside and outside and never fail to crack me up. TWSS makes my life.

Love you real big!

Confessions From A Working Mom said...

YOU ROCK, GIRL!

I know, there is always that one person who has to spoil it... I had a nasty anonymous commenter on my blog too, and I did exactly what you have, and stopped allowing anonymous comments. It sucks, because that means now I can't hear from my sister-in-law and a few other friends, but it's worth it to protect my fragile little ego :)

Mar said...

I don't know if I have said it before - but your blog pretty much ROCKS!
And whoever is leaving stupid anonymous comments can stick it where the sun don't shine (channeling my inner mean-girl here, does it work?).

Sara-Jane Elizabeth said...

Girl, you know I love you.

Haters are awful, they're just jealous!

Lula! said...

Dude, thanks for keepin' it real. This post rocks.

The thing about the blog world that I love is that I've met so many fantastic people who are so different from me--people that I would've never met otherwise. I'm so hardcore Republican/conservative/Christian/addicted to Lost/loving my tattoos/wanting to own a winery/angsty rock-listening, that it's nice to meet Jews...Mormons...Athiests...Democrats...people who don't watch Lost (whom I don't trust, but whatever), people who eschew tattoos, and people who hate my love of really loud rock & roll.


I accept that not everyone wants to make out with Ann Coulter...like me...ahem. (Don't judge--love me through it. There's far too much judging in the world.) I'm friends with people of all ages, from all walks of life. And it's our differences that make us amazing. I love that 99% of the time we are all able to get along.

The world could learn a lot from us.

Haters, they gon' hate...but we can rise above it. And by rise, I completely mean saying, "ERECTO!" Word to your mutha.

Amen.
xoxo

Elizabeth said...

You tell 'em. And I snorted/laughed when I read about mansplaining. So funny :)

Mel said...

haha, I love Lula!
