Hey, friend! I’m Emily and I’m so glad you’re here!
Jesus leads this life – He has given me the gift of writing and so this blog begins! I’m a college student studying English at BGSU and loving every minute of it! I have a passion for mental health since I have struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember. I write about a lot of things, but that is definitely the biggest.
Fair warning: I’m constantly building, tearing down, and rebuilding myself. There are so many different pieces of me, and hopefully they are all evident here. I’m constantly looking to God and hoping I’m doing all right by His standards. I am a Daughter of the King, and that is the notion that keeps me going. My heart beats for a kind of love I can only describe as flawless – the kind of love that comes back to you, accepts your flaws, and forgives you after you turn your back too many times. I’m a hopeless romantic and probably always will be. It’s a good thing God’s love is limitless. 🙂
Some random facts:
My hobbies include reading all of the books, taking pictures of my shih tzu, writing some things (most of which you’ll find here), jamming to Blackpink, and drooling over pictures of the oh-so beautiful landscapes of South Korea. I know every word to every Taylor Swift song and own four copies of the book Divergent by Veronica Roth. My favorite genre of music is kpop (Blackpink, BTS, GOT7, Monsta X, Seventeen, Twice) and I spend a good amount of my time watching kdramas (Descendants of the Sun, Boys Over Flowers, Oh My Ghostess)! I’m also a huge Cleveland Browns fan as evidenced by the photo above!
I tend to call myself an anxious introvert, and let me tell you, I long for the day when I won’t live under my own label but instead live fully under the label that God has given me: Beloved. Until I reach that day, I’m searching and seeking and writing my way along the path my wonderful Savior has laid for me.
What is this blog about?
Put simply, this blog is about my life. It’s about anxiety. It’s about Jesus. It’s about random thoughts that pass through my mind and get stuck there. It’s about the fiction I write. It’s about my feelings. It’s about my life. Expect any and everything to cross through this little hole on the internet!
Why do I write?
I write because I truly feel that I would go insane if I didn’t. When I go without writing, I become very down and out, and the many voices in my head won’t be quiet. Those voices need to be let out whether it be in the form of creative works of this blog. Writing is the one thing that I feel I am truly good at. I live and breathe these words here on this blog.
I really hope that through this blog I can help someone come to Christ or at least help them through anxiety or other woes. I’ve been there, and I know just how awful it is to feel alone. And finally, hopefully, I can entertain you and you’ll come back for more.
