To simply put it, I’m Emily, a twenty year old college student and mother, who is currently involved in an internship through my church with some absolutely amazing people, :-). My passions are writing, music, and hanging out with my friends (along with whatever crazy adventures that brings along with it), and luckily my life is never dull. I’ve never been one for taking extreme risks, although I’ve always been a firm believer in experiencing everything at least once, that way if I decided to judge it, at least I have something to base it off of. I’ve dated, but haven’t dated seriously in the past two years, and don’t have any plans on getting involved with anyone at this point in time, my son is more important to me. There was a time in my life where I was not actively serving the Lord, but a lot of things have changed for me in the past year, and I know that there's still room for some intense growth. I'm not going to push my beliefs on you, I respect your opinions, and you, but I am completely willing and opening to talking about it with you and answering any questions that you might have.
I’ve always been incredibly attached to books, and movies as well. They’re a past time that I’ve indulged in for the longest time, and something that I hope and pray will never change. My favorite book at this point is Lady of the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn by Alison Weir, she has managed to bring a historical research novel to life in an amazingly addictive way. I honestly have no idea how to describe it to you; I’ve never read anything like it. My favorite movies range from Casablanca to Fight Club to Harry Potter, among many others. The authors that have managed to enthrall me enough to be considered my favorites are Jane Austen (author of Pride and Prejudice), Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club and Survivor) and Alison Weir (author of Lady of the Tower and The Six Wives of Henry VIII); they are all three incredible authors that embody very different points of literature. Miss Austen points out the fantasy in life that can be brought to life by loving someone else and pushing through what you thought you knew despite the fact that it is what you desperately want to believe. Mr. Palahniuk on the other hand shows the world as we know it today: tough, hard, and not at all fanciful by any stretch of the imagination; he shows the reality of what the world can shove at you, and the fact that the majority of the time our motivations are not at all pure. Mrs. Weir has brought to light a world in history for me that has me enthralled and addicted me beyond reason. After reading some of her novels, the way the writing flows, and does not feel like a historical research novel at any point, and I have yet to find any other author that has managed to accomplish that.
All in all, I'm pretty down to earth and I love to meet new people, even though I have a close-knit group of friends. I'm willing to shoot the breeze with anyone, and I immensely enjoy it whenever I have the chance to get to know someone new, it's not something that comes around all that often, and no two people are alike. You're welcome to message me or send me an e-mail, all of the contact info is down below. I hope you guys have a great day!
So... I finally finished All Over You, and it seems fitting that I should post the song on here now, which is on YouTube, the link's below. I'll do that with any of the one-shots that I put up that have a song base on them. I hope you liked it. I'll be updating Point of Breaking soon and I'll have a new Tristan/Rory one up before I leave for university in a month.
1. I've spent a chunk of my life feeling as though I was never enough; never passionate enough, loved enough, just plain not enough... but for once in my life, I feel like I'm doing something to become the woman that I want to be.
2. My 'purse' (in reality, it is more of a backpack... lol) always has a book, pen, paper, and chap stick in it. Been that way since I was in junior high, and I have a feeling that will continue until I die. :)
3. I spent a lot of my life dreaming about being elsewhere, whether it was through books, movies, music, or planning where I would travel when I was older, but I'm done wishing that I was somewhere else, and beginning to be okay with the fact that I am right where I need to be for this season of my life. Granted, my dream to travel hasn't died, I'm just more specific on where it's going to be. :) Great Britain, Scotland, Greece, and New Zealand. Not necessarily in that order.
4. My home church... I actually told my family that I would never attend that church again. Low and behold... I'm not actively involved, and completely loving it. And... I so wouldn't change it for the world.
5. Psychology became a fascination to me my freshman year of college; partly because of the fact that I love to study people, and partly because I would love to have a chance to do an in depth study on serial killers. Little known fact though? I absolutely hate psychology when I took a course in it during high school and didn't want to take anything beyond basic requirements in college. Shows what an amazing professor and opening your mind a little can do.
6. When reading, or really analyzing something/someone, I begin to bite my lip in concentration.
7. Whenever I end up getting married, I would love to use both of my grandparent's wedding rings, and either get engaged or married on their anniversary. :)
8. My guilty pleasure is easily the Tudor era. Henry the VIII, Anne Boleyn, Katherine of Aragon (also known as Queen Katherine of England), Elizabeth the I. The whole dynasty when it comes down to it. So so so so so good, I don't even want to count the number of books that I've read on it, let alone the number of books that I own about it. lol. So amazingly good though. From a psychological point of view, it's fascinating, but just from a person's point of view? It's amazingly complicated, intertwined, and well, kind of like a soap opera, lol.
9. I adore the rain. The way it feel, the smell, the way it smells when it's done raining (completely pure and sweet), the sound of it... I'll go and stand out in the rain and just revel in it. Makes people think I'm a little out there, but I'm perfectly okay with that. :)
10. Music and writing go hand in hand for me, although there are moments where I write in complete silence, they are few and far between. The music that I listen to, typically sets the tone for what I'm writing, so I have a very eclectic collection of music, partly due to my way of writing, and partly due to the friends that I have giving me artists that are completely different from each other.
11. I would love to be able to learn how to play the guitar. And spend more time singing.
12. I firmly believe that adoption is an incredibly brave thing to consider, let alone do.
13. Peppermint is one of my weakness; definitely not the only one, and sure a heck not my greatest, but it is certainly one that I have to worry about.
14. I have the hardest time sleeping without someone/something laying next to me. Whether it be my dog or a body pillow, it's really difficult for me to sleep alone now.
15. I thought that I had experienced some of the greatest times in my life when I was in junior high and high school... boy was I wrong, the past five or six months blew those completely out of the water, and I can't even wait to see what else is going to come my way. :)
16. Totally, and completely fine with not knowing what the next step in this amazing journey will be. :)
17. I am a single mother.
18. Christian. Through and through. Flawed, with a past, but made completely new through Him.
19. I love my fellow interns, I can't wait to see what else God is going to do in their lives, and how much they're going to grow in the next five months. :) I am so blessed to have them in my life.
20. My son is one of the most important things in my life. Period.
21. I would love to work with youth at some point in the future, but I'm willing to go with whatever is supposed to happen. :)
22. My goodness... never would have thought that my closest friends are who they are, looking at where I'm at now, from where I was a year ago, I would have never imagined that I could have changed as much as I did, gotten to know the people I have, and that I would have gotten closer to the people that I am.
23. Pickles. Some people say gross; I say yum.
24. I cannot wait to see who God has been preparing me for. :)
25. I am a writer. Period.
