The Boyworm Introduction

Posts by Alex

Hey everyone, Alex here. Jess is officially off to Korea so that means we get to party! Woo hoo!

Since I’ll be sort of kind of taking over the blog (at least half way), I figured you’d all like to get to know me a little more and see what you can expect this place to look like for a while.

Aside from my terrible writing style, you could probably expect to see a lot about music, coffee, student teaching, science fiction, probably some video game fandom on Fictional Fridays, and general bummed-out-ness about Jess being on the other side of the world (woah, it sounds crazy when you put it that way). So we’ll all get to commiserate about that last part.

A brief blurb: I met Jess at Starbucks and I have since turned coffee into a weird hobby. I have a huge collection of coffee makers that all do different stuff and I’ll probably make a post about that. I write the music posts of still undetermined name on this blog and I’ve written before about how music plays into my life. I’m a moderately-sized sci-fi nerd and a bigger gamer. I’ll try to talk a bit about that in the future. I studied physics in college and I’m currently student teaching for grad school. I’m the slowest reader ever which is kind of sad knowing that I live with the fastest reader ever. I’m sure there is other stuff to talk about but I don’t want to bore everyone or spoil some of the fun stuff coming up this month on the blog, so I’ll probably hand it over to Jess to fill in this post with pictures and be done with it.

Welcome to Bookworms in Dresses: The Alex Edition. At least you’re only stuck with me for a month!

A bookworm since the tender age of whenever I stopped chewing on books and started actually reading them. A cat-mom, graphic designer, and introvert originally from Pittsburgh, but now resides in the humid, hot, state of Texas. Cheers!

    Olá Alex! Can't wait to see the post about coffee! A day without coffee for me, its a hard day eheheh

  • Taylor Yates

    Hey Alex! Excited to read your posts! Especially the one about coffee…I'm interested in learning something about coffee beyond the fact that it goes into a latte. 🙂


  • Alex

    Oh don't worry, there will be plenty of posts about coffee!

  • Alex

    Tell me about it. I'm now a pro at 5 minute brewing to get out the door with caffeine in the morning!

  • Hi Alex! I'm super pumped for the takeover 😀

  • The question is: Will you put on a dress? ;P I'm joking, of course. I'm looking forward to reading more of your music and gaming themed posts!
