Remember when we were in college and for every first day of classes your TA made you go around the room and say your name, where you’re from, and one interesting thing about yourself?
**cue the Liz Lemon eye roll**
Well, that’s what every “About Me” page feels like. So let’s get this over with and then pretend that we now know each other a little bit more:
My name is Allex and I am a nerd. Ranging from books and movies to Pokemon and cats, my nerd spectrum knows no bounds. I have books scattered about my apartment, no cooking ability whatsoever, and framed pictures of classic Nintendo controllers on my walls.
From Chicago, Illinois, I’ve been writing since I was about twelve and reading for as long as I can remember. Words are my passion.
I just finished my master’s degree in creative writing at the University of Greenwich in London, England. When I talk to my American friends they laugh at me for using London lingo. When I speak with my London mates, they tease me for my American slang. It’s a vicious cycle. But I use apartment/flat roommate/flatmate interchangeably, so yeah. Get over it.
My Ultimate Dream is to be a published Young Adult author. I plan on writing the next Harry Potter or Twilight series, but without the wizards and vampires. This is my outlet. My place to share my stories. Fictional or otherwise.
And I guess the one interesting thing about myself is that I have two different shaped thumbs.
