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!

"Do you think it's possible to do something without knowing why you're doing it?"

"People drink to cover up what they want."

"It's like when you do things in a dream, and it frightens you because you didn't think that's who you are, but, it's you. Even in a dream it's still you."

I definitely just stole all those from the current episode of Pretty Little Liars I'm watching. Except no boy is giving me his jacket. I feel like teenage boys never even wear jackets to begin with. Teen angsttttt. That's alright, we will wait for suit coats, right!?!?!

I think I'm going to buy a white dress this winter. 
What do you think? 

Oh, and it's never unintentional.

XOXO

I can't decide if I'm a cynical romantic, or a romantic cynic.





I wrote this in my head earlier, but I forgot what the topic was.

I don't even know anymore. I guess this is just cool, because I'm winning at Risk and it all happened in one turn. I don't care about the Olympics either, and apparently that's un-American. I'm going to miss Megan and Curtis. They are truly great people. My experience at Beans and Brews was a great one. Cross your fingers my coffee shop transition will work out. 

I sincerely hope that people learn how to act at cafes, for the sanity of the future generation. Please, help us avoid saying the following phrases: "What kind of chips would you like?" "What size would you like?" "We don't have tacos, it's a taco salad." "Would you like Dasani or Smartwater?" "The fountain drinks are right over there."

I just wish I had Photoshop CS6 for reals and a Diet Coke with lime and maybe some chocolate as well. I'm not on my period, but I'm just discovering those are the best three things in world, and it's probably because I can hold them in my hands. Who knew tangibility could be so satisfying? Ha. Ha. Ha. I should probably insert a Roark reference here, but I'm no where close to being the perfect human and neither are you. Ask me why? (Why?) We are actual humans and actually feel, and as much as I can appreciate what Ayn Rand was trying to say, I just feel like maybe he's a little too robotic. Remember, metal doesn't get you anything except for like, a weird rust farm, and I'd much rather grow pumpkins.

This is getting weird and it's probably because I am really getting at nothing here, and I think that's just the greatest thing in the world.

XOXO

Are you running to or are you running from? Oh, and some photos from India.







Maybe it's both, ya know?

Who's to say that I can't run from something and run to something at the same time? Who's to say you can't either? I mean, if Jen Lindley can wear those pajamas in every episode, anything is possible.

See you later, American Fork. Please, don't follow me.
See you soon, Seattle. Please, make it a good one.




XOXO
