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!

These photos are from Homecoming. In case you were wondering.

Sometimes I feel like I'm suffocating and there are all these hands on my throat and covering my nose and holding a pillow to my face. And it makes me want to run away to the old tintic mine in Goshen and wheatpaste my feelings for a week. Or surround myself with hairless cats and sing them lullabies until they fall asleep. Or purchase 80 million rolls of black and white film and shoot my life story so I can give it to a homeless person who will just burn it for warmth or to get their next heroin fix. 

And then all that will be left will be crumpled tin foil and ashes.

You know? I don't want crumpled tin foil. I want nice, crisp, clean tin foil. The kind that hasn't ever been touched or used. The kind that fits perfect over the broccoli and cheese I just gave to my mother because I was sick of the taste. 

I want that tin foil. 
I want those cats meowing in harmony with my lullabies.
I want to meet Shepard Fairey while I'm in Goshen and chat with him. Or maybe even Banksy, and see just how a small girl searches a police officer. Ya, Banksy would be nice.

But, honestly? These hands are not going to stop shoving down feather pillows on me. They aren't going away, no matter how hard I push them. They are growing on me. They are growing into my skin. We are melting together in this not-so-winterish-weather. It's sick and it's wrong and it's driving me crazy.

But, it's just something that happens sometimes and we all have to deal with it.

New in shop + Etsy store open

Alright. So, couple of changes.
I feel annoying posting my shop and Etsy things on here, so from now on I'll tell if either one is updated on my Twitter or in the title of a post, but I'm not going to post photos ha ha ha.

I just miss my photography.

Anways, so yes. Basically, new stuff is in the shop. Check it out.

Also, I've finally opened an Etsy. Right now it's just bows for hair and stuff, but I'm starting to work on some collars, so hopefully those will be in by this time next week.

Well, I'm going to go do some calculus and work on collars.
Have a lovely evening.
Or morning.
Or day.

Warning: this post is pointless.

Well, I'm just sitting here at my old place of employment. And let me just say, I CAN NOT BELIEVE I HAVE 90 FOLLOWERS. 

It's weird, ya know? I mean, I don't feel like this blog is "really awesome" or is even anything worth talking about. But, 90 FOLLOWERS?! Geez. You folks are toooooo kind. Sincerely. 

All the comments I get make me so happy:). I always try to trace your links and comment back on your blogs. I like to think of it as a little comment conversation... hahaha. But, oh my gosh. I can't believe I have 90 followers! I remember when I first started this, Sarah B.....(I don't want creepy Internet molesters to stalk her) told me to make a fashion blog. So, that's what I did. I remember signing up for Mormon Fashion Bloggers and IFB, but I didn't know it'd rake me in 40 page views a day! Maybe that isn't a lot to you guys. But, I know for me it's super crazy to think that 40 people are actually reading what I have to say.

Well, I'm sorry this is getting all sentimental, but let me just say...


You guys are like genuine friends to me:).

OH, let me just make a promise though. I promise to always blog about whatever is on my mind. I will never post anything just because I feel like I need to. I will never be one of those annoying "follow me and I'll follow back". I will always tell you folks what's going on, and even if that person might be reading my blog, I will still tell you. Because, it's fair that way.

This is a separate thought process, but I was just thinking. I think blogs should be a place where people can spill anything. And I don't mean that they should say all the drama that's going on (because no one really cares anyways... what?), but I think people should never NOT post something just because they are scared someone is going to read it. Bahaha. Confession: Sometime I want to post something, but then I remember my sister reads this, so I don't.

Pick a date my friends. Sometime in the summer. And I will answer any juicy questions you have in complete honesty. I actually think that would be fun!! We can spread it around to the whole blogosphere!! Bloggers everywhere will be coming closer together!! I think we should do it. We'll call it... The Confession Session. The one and only rule will be that you have to answer every question you receive, and you have to be 100% honest. 
Confession Session.
Let's do this folks.
