Hi there!

Hi! Welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm a 26 year old therapist, feminist, photographer, and shop owner currently living in Seattle, Washington. My shop, Dealign with Feelings, is geared toward destigmatizing and normalizing mental health. I'm biased, but I think we have some pretty cute stuff :) Click the "shop" tab to see what we've got! I mainly post about my travel and daily life on here. With other random musings thrown in. I post more frequently (and about more feminism) on my Instagram @emmycoletti, so make sure you're following me there. Thanks for stopping by!

"Matt Damon cut his hair short for some reason."






How I passed the time on the airplane.

Brie with macadamia nut crust, balsamic reduction, green apples, honey, fig, and foccacia bread.
BEST MEAL ALL MONTH. 

MCDONALD'S GOT MY ORDER WRONG.
"I would like a cheeseburger with everything, minus the meat."
"Ok. Your number will be 37."
....
"Number 37!!!"
"Sweet! Thank you!"
....
"Em! That looks good! Except. It has meat."
"Mother f my life."
"I'll take it back." 
"No, mom. It's ok."
"I'm taking it back."
"Ok."

A WOMAN WITH A MISSING ARM AND SHOULDER SHOWED ME WHERE TO PLUG IN MY LAPTOP.
"Honey, there's a plug right here!"
"Ah!! Thank you so much!!"
"You are certainly welcome!"

MY BROTHER READ MY JOURNAL WHILE I WAS SITTING NEXT TO HIM, AND READ AT LEAST FIVE PAGES BEFORE MY MOTHER NOTICED, AND THEN PROCEEDED TO QUOTE IT FOR THE DURATION OF THE DAY.
"Emily!! Colton's reading your journal!!"
"Colton!! Stop reading my journal! Mom! Get it from him!"
"So... Emily... Who's ***********? What happened after ******? Does ***** know ****?"
"FML."

MY GRANDMOTHER KEEPS TABS ON MATT DAMON.
"When I was in the Marines I had to cut my hair short.. (story about cutting hair)."
"Yeah, that's what I'm going to do because (response to story about cutting hair)"
"Yeah... Matt Damon cut his hair short for some reason."
(silence)
(uncontrollable laughter by my mother and I)



Oh, the things people say.


p.s. what's cooler than being cool?

All I want to do is ride bikes with you.

I am currently at the Boise airport. It really isn't as bad as you'd think. They have this little art gallery with the most adorable picture I have ever seen (I will link it up later).

Ok. My eye is seriously bothering me. You know when you can feel that there's something in it, but it isn't like way itchy so you just let it go because you'd rather have it be slightly bothersome than extremely itchy?
That's what's happening to me at the moment.

What if humans didn't have eyes and we could just read objects? Like the walls and stuff could send brain signals so we wouldn't run into them? That would save so much pain, but I guess it would kind of suck because then we couldn't see Santa Clause or snow or the sunset or people fall. We could just have like one eye. Like a cyclops. 
Then we would only have to worry half as much, but still get the full benefits of sight.

Well folks, I'm off to play a game of chess with my brother.
Speaking of which, yesterday he tried to tell me he had insomnia. I kept telling him it was just because he stayed up late at night and slept during the day, but he REFUSED. 
"EMILY. I HAVE INSOMNIA!".
I walked by his room about an hour and a half later and the little dear was sleeping like no other mother. Lol!

Oh, and speaking of deer, I used to work with this kid who every time I would say, "Chandler, be a dear and grab me that soda." would put his hands up like antlers first, and then grab the soda. Hahahaaahahah.
People are so great.

**EDIT: I could not find a photo of the painting online, so I sneakily took one myself. The artist's name is Jaki Katz Ashford and she has a very intriguing style. Look at the the painting Father Figure.

p.s. take me home. i'd rather die than be with you.
