I could tell you that I’m 19. But that will change.
I could tell you that I live in Illinois. But that may change too.
I could tell you that I’m hilarious but, let’s face it, depending on whether or not I get my morning coffee, that definitely changes too.
Although this is my very first official “About” page, I’d like to think I know a little bit about talking about myself. My name’s Alexis however most people know me as Lex, Lexi, or “that one black girl”. I’m nineteen years old, a recent graduate from high school, and I grew up in a small town near Chicago where the only thing higher than the people themselves was the teen pregnancy rate. Growing up in such a small, lackluster town, I quickly had to learn ways to entertain myself with things other than mediocre reality television and that good ol’ Mary Jane, hence my obsessions with fashion, music, filmmaking, professional shower singing, photography, and writing. Like most teenaged girls, I’ve had my share of break-ups and heartache, hormone induced mood swings, NON-hormone induced mood swings, failed ProActiv attempts, after school detentions, embarrassing sex talks, and even more embarrassing sex. However, one thing that sets me apart from the “typical teenager” is
I starve myself.
Well mostly, anyways, with the exception of the occasional purge and laxative use but, let’s face it, who wants to admit that shit?
(no pun intended)
