Year: 1996 - 1997
School: Christ the King School
Homeroom Teacher: Mrs. Smith
1. Fourth grade was the first year you could participate in Student Government. I ran a campaign with a golden slogan: “Vote for Alexi; it’ll put a smile on your face!” Happy face crap was really cool in 1996. I even had a campaign manager, a new girl named Mallory Maurin. With her help, I won by a landslide. Suckers! All of them!
2. I was an overachiever to the maximum (I be askin’ ‘em…would you like to bounce with a brotha that’s platinum?). I was, of course, involved with student council, cheerleading, volleyball, tennis, ballet, tap, jazz, piano, softball, and art. Though, I did just quit soccer and basketball (after two years in each) and Girl Scouts (after three years). I should also mention that I had never had anything but straight As on my report cards. However, my most impressive affair was that I co-founded The Spice Girls Wannabes, a club devoted to making dances up to Spice Girls songs. Naturally, I was Baby Spice (*~4ever~*). Where is this motivation now, you ask? Well, I’m asking that, too.
3. My face became adult-sized while my nose and body remained childlike. I looked like a walking lollipop.
(P.S. - Please note the comb-over that I was sporting from cutting my hair off in third grade. So hot).
