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!

I have a sudden urge to document everything I do.

But the thing is, I don't exactly do anything exciting. I go to school and come home. Bam. Teenagers usually have semi-interesting lives. What with break-ups and best friends and lying skanky hos. Sorry to disappoint.

Ok. Maybe the following will be of interest to you:

-My old best friend hasn't talked/texted me for two weeks. She has a boyfriend. In case you didn't know, those are more important.

-In mine and my new BFF's free time, we are building a giant Lego tower. Be jealous.

-My niece is adorable. The end.

-I'm really craving some eggs and toast, so I'm going to go make some while listening to the new Jack's Mannequin album. Perfection.

Until tomorrow,
Sincerely yours,
Depending on who you are,
And if you like winter and snow,

An introduction.

I always see these surveys on Tumblr, and I think they look fun. I've decided I'm going to start doing them. You know, because you're all dying to know the last thing I ate.

What time did you get up this morning? 9:30. I stayed up until 3, otherwise it would have been 8.
How do you like your steak? Non-existent!! I don't eat meat.
What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Dream House. I thought it was good! I guess it only got two stars, and my mother didn't care for it. But, I thought it was good. It has twists and conflict, and besides, Daniel Craig is hot!
What is your favourite TV show? Friends! I seriously laugh out loud when I watch it. Plus, it has like a bazillion episodes.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Ok, well it depends what age I am. But, for the majority of my life, I would like to live in Spokane, Washington.
What did you have for breakfast? Well! I had two scrambled eggs (with a hint of ginger and salt) and toast with plum marmalade, and a glass of milk.
What is your favorite food? Hmmm. Probably chocolate covered marshmallows. Like the marshmallow Santas at Christmas time. Those are delicious. Or, I really like Caprese, but it depends where it's from.
Foods you dislike? I hate those circus peanut candies, cottage cheese, beans (by themselves), pumpkin seeds, cheese curds, oranges, plain chocolate ice cream, orange juice with pulp, meat, and I HATE THE SMELL OF COOKED CHICKEN.
Favorite place to eat? Gloria's Little Italy in Provo. Or Mimi's Cafe in Orem. Favorite dressing? Um... Anything fat free. I don't get the point in eating a salad, if you're just going to get a normal dressing! It's not necessarily healthier to you that way, because the dressing has so much fat in it.
What kind of vehicle do you drive? A pimpin' bronze Plymouth Grand Voyager. Also an adorable 1989 turquoise Honda Elite.
What are your favorite clothes? For me? Dresses and skirts. Also, button downs and Mary Janes. For boys? Button downs, bow ties, stripes, khaki pants, and sweaters.
Where would you visit if you had the chance? A lot of places. Bath, England. Vermont. New York. Italy. A quaint town somewhere in France. 
Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full? Depends on the day and the event.
Where would you want to retire? Somewhere beautiful. Who knows what state things will be in then.
Favorite time of day? Early morning, right when the sun is starting to rise.
Where were you born? Grand Junction, Colorado.
What is your favorite sport to watch? I don't watch sports. 0_0
What is your favorite fragrance? Dream Angels Heavenly from Victoria Secret, or that Gucci Blue?? Cologne for men.
People watcher? Yes. More than you know...
Are you a morning or night person? I'm nicer at night, but I like mornings better. They just have more potential.
Do you have any pets? Yes. Her name is Trixie and she is about 12 and so adorable.
Any new and exciting news you’d like to share? Hmm. I got 100 on my calculus homework! And a I won the best essay in my English group. ALSO. I couldn't start my scooter for forever, but then I took it in, and the guy told me I just needed to start it while it was still up on it's kickstand. So, now I can start it easily, which means I can go to the park and take photos more.
What did you want to be when you were little? A plastic surgeon.... I know.
What is your favorite memory? I have two. 1.) Waking up to the sound of rain hitting the window at my grandma's house during spring break of 9th grade. 2.) Laying on the love seat in the basement on a snowy winter night, listening to the cashmere music channel, and waiting for my friend to come over.
Are you a cat or dog person? I like dogs better, but cats are so adorable.
Are you married? No.
Always wear your seat belt? Yes. I don't have a death wish.
Been in a car accident? No.
Any pet peeves? Yes. The sound of dogs licking. The sound of people molding raw hamburger meat. The sound of my mom's toothbrush. The word "spontaneity". When people yell. Things coming fast at my face.
Favorite pizza toppings? Spinach and tomatoes.
Favorite flower? I don't know what they're called, but they are huge and fluffy.
Favorite ice cream? Vanilla.
Favorite fast food restaurant? Subway
How many times did you fail your driver’s test? None. I rock.
From whom did you get your last email? Fastweb Scholarships.
Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Modcloth.
Do anything spontaneous lately? No. :(. I will try to tonight though.
Like your job? I don't really have one. Sometimes, I work at the Dinosaur Museum, and I quite like that. 
Broccoli? Love it.
What was your favorite vacation? Spokane. Particularly in the Winter. Ok, probably Thanksgiving to Spokane a couple years ago.
Last person you went out to dinner with? My mother. Lol, there was this old Asian man who kept walking around the restaurant and he had the most peculiar look on his face. His mouth was wide open and he was slumped over. He just looked so confused. Every time I saw him and I burst out laughing. When we were leaving, I looked back at my mom and he was right behind here. I seriously peed my pants and little bit and booked it out of there.
What are you listening to right now? Jen tell Jack that they can't have sex. (This on Dawson's Creek.) I'm very confused because I thought he was gay, but they are both drunk and making out. I thought that if you're gay, being drunk won't really make a difference on being attracted to someone... So why is he trying to have sex with her?!
What is your favorite color? Green.
How many tattoos do you have? ZERO.
Coffee drinker? On occasion. Mainly Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the winter, and White Chocolate Mochas in the summer.

Rant #1:

He has class III malocclusion, but makes up for it with very white enamel and a perfect maxillary arch.

Alright, here's the thing. People on Facebook add people they barely know just so they can have a lot of "friends". People on Blogger follow someone, solely because that person will follow them back and then they will have more followers. People on Twitter follow someone for a follow back.

I don't understand.

What is it with people? Why does everyone feel so uncomfortable with a low amount of followers or friends? I mean, it's not like it's some huge ego boost to have 500. It simply means there are 500 people you don't even know pretending to read your blog, when in reality they haven't looked at it since the day you made the I'll-follow-you-if-you-follow-me pact. And Facebook. Really? Is it honestly necessary to add your co-workers semi friend who he texted twice and that's it? I mean, HONESTLY.

Stop pretending you have friends. In reality, you're just another social climber who is too uncomfortable with themselves to be real.

That's all.
