You all know me as Alex, but some people know me as Sheldon.
This is a nickname that, despite my initial efforts, has stuck with me since I was 15. It was first used because I was said to act like the character Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. “Bullshit” was what I said at first, I didn’t want to be like him! It only took a few months until I started to like the nickname, it began to remind me of who I am and what makes me, me. “You’re so like Sheldon” became a phrase that I would hear nearly daily because of the funny ways that I do things or the things I say.
I would definitely describe myself as an optimist. I put a lot of effort in to staying happy and positive throughout my day. I can practically hear you sigh as you read this, it sounds so fucking corny but it is very true. It is hard sometimes but always worthwhile. You need to enjoy the things you enjoy; for me this is music, piano, painting, making things, and most recently, podcasting. I always look forward to the next recording session with Hamish because it gives us an excuse to see more of each other. Even if we had only a few viewers it would still be just as much fun. Sorry Hamish, if you read this you’ll be thinking “HA GAAAAAAAAY!”
One of my favourite quotes:
Your life is a sham, till you can shout out, I am what I am
