When she was 16, Aly said about college: [Its] obviously something that Ive thought about a little bit, but Im so happy with what Im doing now and I feel like college is an avenue for you to find what you want to do, what you want to have as your career, finding yourself as a person. If I wanted to go there for fun and have a good time and be on my own I would do that for sure, but I already know what I want to do (crushable.com).
Aly told Alloy.com about her first kiss: Mine was really sweet! It was perfect! It was very simple, and it meant a lotit was cool and very memorable, for sure. I was 15.
She told complex.com, Im a huge book fanatic, and I shoot. Im very comfortable around guns. Ive been shooting since I was 9. I usually shoot a .22 Magnum, but I prefer a shotgun because the feeling is incredible.
Aly Michalka described herself as one of those chicks who wants to be in a relationship. I need somebody who can make me laugh and entertain me. She described a story she tells to guys she doesnt like: I tell them Im 17 even though Im 21, so they feel like perverts. They freak out, like, Oh, you're 17! Oh, sorry, sorry! But some of them really dont care. Thats when you know theyre weirdoes (maxim.com).
