There have been a few events in my life recently that have made my friends say, “that’s so Alissa.” Because I believe in laughing at myself I will share these events with you.
First, the ball face smashing incident. I decided to start doing some high intensity workouts and one night I was doing medicine ball slams. I had a 10 pound ball which I was throwing on a padded mat and catching. Well, as my luck would have it, that exercise is actually quite exhausting and by my last set I threw the ball down super, super hard. I knew what was coming but couldn’t stop it. The ball bounced so hard that it came up and hit me in the nose causing me to fly backwards, grabbing my nose and falling to the ground.

Second, the water bottle incident. I had just finished shooting an engagement session and was really thirsty and had to use the bathroom. I decided to stop at a gas station. I took care of the having to use the bathroom part and then decided on what over-priced bottle of water I would buy. I decided to really splurge and get the square bottle. Now, instead of having a purse I just had my wallet and keys. Remember this. I went up to the register to purchase said over-priced bottle of water. Paid for it. Grabbed my keys and wallet and left.
Got in the car.
Went to take a drink of my rich water and realized I left it on the counter of the gas station. I debated going back. I thought about how much I paid for water then considered how much my pride was worth to me. I decided to just never go back to that gas station again.
And that my dear readers, is so Alissa.
