hey, it's just me :)

So we’ve been asked to write about ourselves – AGAIN?! I don’t think that all the king’s horses and all the king’s men could even keep count of the amount of times I’ve written about me, myself and I. But a thought came to me though, just as I was about to do that “oh-no-do-we-have-to?” groan. I thought to myself: Alexa, you’ve grown so much, well not vertically, but yes you’ve grown since the last time you had to dish out the dirt about yourself. This piece would be like nothing you’ve written before! And as the theme song of The Powerpuff Girls faded somewhere into the back of my head, I suddenly realised that I was excited to write this blog. Whoo-hoo!

Okay, so who am I? What am I like? Well, my name is Alexa but everyone calls me Lexi. I’m also really short, so you bet I’ve heard every, and I mean EVERY single short joke under the sun. I’m yet to have someone hit me up with a very impressive short joke. So until then I’ll keep on responding with a bored smile. I love laughing, I really do appreciate a good sense of humour – which I like to think I have, oh and I love people. I love laughing with people and sometimes at them. New friends, old friends – it doesn’t really matter. I’m just looking for real people that I can share the good and bad times with. Friendship to me is so important and I really value all of mine. I’ll do anything for old friends, new friends, distant friends, potential friends you name it. Unfortunately people do take advantage of you and treat you like crap but I’ve learnt that sometimes it’s just not worth it. I guess that I’ve reached a stage where I want to be surrounded by people who add value to my life and have a positive influence on me. (*Sigh*, if my parents could only hear their first-born now.) We all make mistakes but we live and we learn. Everybody deserves a second chance at everything and I’m a firm believer in that but don’t push it, you know what I’m saying?

It’s appropriate that my name means – (loud deep voice) “the helper of mankind” – because that’s what I’m all about. I love helping people where I can with everything and anything. I want everyone in the world to feel good about themselves and be proud of their unique qualities. I absolutely hate those “mean girls” type of cliques because it’s always controlled by one person who had absolutely no idea about who the hell they are. You know that story about dynamite that comes in small packages...well it’s true. I have a mind of my own and I’m not afraid to speak it. Hell no! I’m normally very chilled about stuff but when someone pushes me to the edge, I’m willing and able to tell it like it is. I don’t care who you are, okay. I’m very driven in everything I do and I take pride in all my achievements. Things don’t get handed to you in life; you need to work for them. People who want to be spoon-fed their entire lives, have no backbone in my opinion. Tsk tsk very pathetic!

Anyway, now is the perfect time for a little list I think. Just a few things of what I like and don’t like – it’ll be like getting to know me speed-dating style.

·         I love love love strawberries. Here’s why
·         I don’t love it when old men wink at me when I’m out at night with my girls.
·         I love the colour blue.
·         I don’t love fake, self-centred, “my hair is straighter than yours” type of people.
·         I love my family, making new friends and spending time with my old ones.
·         I don’t love it when people moan or complain and have a bad attitude all the time.
·         I love bubble baths and singing in the shower.
·         I don’t love being woken up by my neighbours arguing or doing the nasty.
·         I love music and dancing.
·         I love learning new things especially about myself, it’s so refreshing.
·         I don’t love not being successful in things that I pour my heart into.
·         I love it when I can find a pair of shoes in my size – very rare thing that!
·         I don’t love it when my sister’s boyfriend comes over and leaves the toilet seat up.
·         I love curling up in bed with a Stephen King book and a truckload of snacks.
·         I don’t love it when people hurt each other or animals.
·         I love cheesy pizza and pasta - hmmmmm.
·         I don’t love it when a little drop of toothpaste falls onto my top.
·         I love catching a tan and building sandcastles on the beach.

So that’s me in a little nutshell. I’m really happy with the person I am right now but I also look forward to growing every day in all aspects of my life. Wherever I may be in the next ten years time, be it a famous rock star, a crowd-pleasing dancer or even a successful PR lady person, all I want is to be a ten times better version of myself. Everything in life – all the problems, hurt and destruction can be changed by positive attitudes and energies. There’s really nothing else to it!

Peace, love and happiness
