Hi there!

Hi there! Welcome to my corner of the internets. I'm a 26 year old therapist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My online spaces are educational and lifestyle accounts dedicated to educating, engaging, and empowering women through digital art, home design, and travel.... with a touch of humor and personality sprinkled throughout. Stay a while!

April 8th, 2011

Uncomfortable moments of the day:
-While sitting in the middle of a dead silent psychology classroom, an air bubble popped in my stomach. It emitted a very high pitched, long noise. Basically sounding like a fart.

- No one told me there was chocolate on my upper lip.

- After sitting in my car for roughly ten minutes doing various things (picking my teeth with the corner of a piece of paper, rehearsing to-be-had conversations, you know, the usual) I notice there is a girl in the car next to me.

- I had to whisper loudly in order to ask the sub to go to the bathroom.

- Walking out of the bathroom, I saw my history teacher. We were the only two in the hallway. He said "Hi Emily!" and I said, "Hello!". The problem? This was all exchanged while we were still a good thirty feet apart. That space was closed very quickly, with both of us looking awkwardly away.

Farewell dear sister and small child.
I will miss you both terribly.

i stick around.

I will raise $21,000 by November of this year.

Why? I'm part of a group called Youth Making A Difference. In November we're going to Himachal Pradesh to deliver medical supplies, train teachers, build schools, teach English, and improve villages. I'm so grateful for my opportunity to go there and help people who don't have as much as I do. The district we are going to is one of the poorest in the entire country. There are 8 orphanages that take care of over 300 kids.

In my opinion, people read these facts and don't really think about it. Sure, they feel bad and wish they could help, but then they move on. There really is so much anyone can do. It's super easy.  50 dollars can buy an entire orphanage sweaters. That's why my goal is to raise $21,000. The most someone ever raise in my group was $20,000.

Naturally I have to beat it.

If you have any ideas that will help me come up with these funds, please drop a comment. I would love to hear from you.

Best Coast is the perfect summer band.

I don't understand why you're not indie if you say you're indie.
