My Name is Not Slim Shady. It’s Alex.

Hello. Bonjour. Hola. Ciao. Welcome to Young, Mild & Free, or as I lazily like to call it, YMF! My name is Alex and I am a 18 19 year old ordinary college sophomore finding my way in a terrifyingly exciting world. I am a sarcasm aficionado, an aspiring vegan, a try-hard half marathoner, and a future film producer.

So what am I doing here on the Internets? It’s simple really. I’ve recently become an insomniac, and blogging seemed like the appropriate course of action! (Not entirely untrue) But in all seriousness, I have always been inspired by the world around me, and in today’s day and age, that includes the online world as well. The way I see it, life is hilarious, beautiful, tough, challenging, and insane in the most amazing way. I plan on using this blog to document my exploits, adventures, successes, failures, and everything in between. What can you expect then? Besides anecdotes from my ridiculously exciting life (Hint: There is a reason this blog is called Young, MILD, and Free), prepare for culinary adventures, attempts at style, exploration of culture, and testaments to my love for the lovely city of Los Angeles. And if these shenanigans inspire you, I’m going to add a tally to my personal win column.

So get ready Internet. Take my hand and join me in this online journey.

Oh, and I like questions, so ask them if you have them! I promise not to let my sarcasm get in the way of my answer (mostly).

  1. Hi Alex!
    Love the design and text on all your photos!
    I stumbled on your blog through the Los Angeles tag and wanted you to be one of the first to know that we are launching an event website called wigo events. Our site focuses on a community of users in Los Angeles sharing cool events that they know about, and we would love to have you be a part of it! If you are interested in being one of our very first users please leave us your email address at the link right below, sorry its so long, don’t know how to add a hyperlink in the comment section haha. Once our site goes live in the next few months, we’ll let you know!
