An Introductory of Sorts

Oh! Ohey there! Didn't see you there.
So, I'm not really sure what to expect any more than you do. I can't really predict how I will write or what I will write about so let's just wing it. Let's start with "Getting to know Alex Jackson."
1. I've been skiing since I was 6...yup, wittle Awex was a wee skiing machine.
2. I've been playing the cello since 4th grade and I wouldn't dare part from it now!
3. I did play drums at one point and I still practice but that is dying in me, meh, oh well.
4. I'm excited that Webster thinks "meh" is a word now.
5. Look it up if you don't believe me.
6. I swam competitively from 5th to 12th grade.
7. I've been in track since 7th grade and would love to continue it in college.
8. I'm attending UW Eau-Claire for secondary English education...aka, high school teacher, I'm a fool.
9. If not that I really want to study architecture. Mmm, look at those buttresses.
10. I'm too busy, social, and sarcastic for my own good.
11. My favorite color is yellow.
12. Favorite band? Silly of you to ask...impossible to say!
13. I eat like an overweight man who had been deprived of food for a few hours, attractive, aye?
14. I work at Spencer's Gifts at Southridge Mall as a sales associate, it is such an interesting job, no joke.
15. I have two wonderful parents that are high school sweethearts, a lovely sister who lives in Chicago, a pet snake named Baxter, and the cutest dog named Agatha Christie (Aggie for short).

Well, we'll take a break from those tidbits of information since there is other information in the convenient side bar, yesss.

Since this blog was created for a class I should probably say a few words about my actual writing. In these blogs I'll have to complete certain tasks while making it "my best writing." This first assignment was to introduce ourselves and/or how/what we'll be writing about. I'll probably dabble in a few different styles of writing because I like to just try new things...it's a blessing and a curse! Well, enjoy!


  1. Welcome to the blogging world :D

  2. Off to a running writing start as always, Alex...love it!

  3. Alex, reading your introduction makes me really miss you because I used to know all that about you. Your sarcastic and straight to the point tone resonates clearly in all of your writing. I really like how you described all different aspects of yourself because they all make up you and in order to get a real idea of who you are, I strongly believe you need to tell people abotu all the different layers of you. So Congrats on that! I really love your blog so far and I can't wait to read what you have to say!

  4. I love your introduction. It gives me facts about you that I did not even know about. This is a great blog and I cannot wait to read more from you!

  5. "Meh" really is a word! I'm shocked. I enjoy the way you organized this, in ways of like a list. Interesting.

  6. I just stumbled across this because my son has the same assignment, and I have to say, after reading some of your blogs, you have a real talent.

    Even though you want to be a teacher and love sports and all of that, you should at LEAST write (and get published) on the side. It's be a shame to let your talent go to waste. really.
