I am Alex. I write on occasion. Most of the writing comes late at night, when insomnia has struck and it takes a good ‘ol creative writing assignment to keep myself occupied. I do not intend to be insightful, although it may sometimes happen. I do not intend to be funny, although it may sometimes happen. This is just a place for me to sit down an write. This blog was started January 2008 and will continue until I feel I no longer have a need to write. For those of you who do read (I think that’s about 5 people), thank you for reading.
In high school, I read Waiting for Godot and liked it. I liked the themes, plot, and idea. Absurdist. Hidden meaning in long rambling, rambling, rambling, punctuation free monologues. Thus, I created the headline for this blog: “Dear Didi and Gogo, You’ve been waiting in the wrong place. See you soon! -G.” We may all be “waiting in the wrong place” at times. Everything we need may be waiting for us in a different location. And we will all get there. Some sooner than others. But we will all get there, nonetheless.
I am originally from a suburb of Los Angeles, in the San Fernando Valley. I am a graduate of the University of Oregon (Class of 2012), having received a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations within the School of Journalism and Communications. I am a member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, a former member/President/Public Relations Manager/Tour Manager of On The Rocks, the all-male a’cappella group at the UO (baritone/vocal percussion), and former President of the Pit Crew (the student section at the sporting events).
I enjoy sports, following the LA Dodgers, Lakers, Clippers, Galaxy, Oakland Raiders, and of course, the University of Oregon Ducks. I also have a passion in entertainment; an avid movie-watcher; as well as a self-proclaimed Jeopardy nerd, frequently browsing Wikipedia for more and more useless information.
