Hello everyone, I am so excited that you are visiting our blog. As you can tell, I am the “Lex” from the “Jen & Lex” title. Blogging is a new adventure for me and I hope you come along for the ride. You probably find yourself wondering who these two young women are that have so bluntly entered the blogosphere. Well, I am here to hopefully answer some of those questions that are swirling around your mind.
Let’s start with the basics. My name is Alexa Archambault and I am currently a freshman at the University at Buffalo. I grew up right down the road from this world-class research university and I am so thankful to be living at home while I attend school. While many look at this as a negative, I love eating a homemade meal every night and having clean, folded clothes magically appear on my bed. I am majoring in Political Science and intend to minor in Communications.
I am passionate about a variety of topics, but my heart is truly controlled by my faith in Jesus. I am a nondenominational Christian and do not know what I would do without God’s guidance, mercy, and love. Speaking of His guidance, He truly is the one who led me to the thing I plan to turn into a career: politics. While many look at politics in an extremely negative light, I absolutely love it. My life can be accurately described as eat, sleep, breathe, politics. I spend way too much time tweeting (click here to stalk my account!) and not enough time doing my homework…but sacrifices must be made. Eventually I hope to live in the city of my dreams (Washington D.C.) and become a political journalist. I also love fashion and am into anything from Vineyard Vines to Brandy Melville. Another one of my favorite things to do is travel. A couple summers ago, I had the opportunity to visit Paris, Provence, Nîmes, and Barcelona with some friends and it was the most amazing ten days of my life! Traveling is such a great way to explore other cultures and see wonders you could never even imagine.
Blogging is bound to be a thrilling new adventure for me. I cannot wait to start sharing things with you all and I truly hope you enjoy our content. Expect big things from us here at jenandlex.com. Hope to see you all soon.
