I'm Emmeline (emme-leeeeeeen). Call me Emi, Emily, or Potato if you so wish. Just let me know ahead of time hehe~ To be honest, I've been waiting until I turned 18 to join this community for what feels like forever! I was super surprised when I found out that I wasn't the only weirdo in the world, because everyone is a weirdo in some way or another, but it was nice to know I wasn't the only one into this kind of stuff xD.
I LOVE CATS. I've just liked them ever since I first saw one because they are so adorable and yet are dignified and graceful. Plus they are super soft.
As a teenage girl, I admit I am easily drawn to soft or shiny things, and am notorious for spending excessive amounts of time on forever21's website.
Beauty isn't the most important thing in the world, but to all that say, "it's what's on the inside that counts", I say that while it is true in the end, it is not at first glance. When we meet someone for the first time, all we know is what we can see and what we can glean from the few sentences exchanged. If someone looks professional, we assume they are professional until proven otherwise. We then treat them as we perceive them, furthering their attribute of professionalism in our brains. In a perfect world, all the evil people would be ugly and all the nice people would be beautiful. In our minds, it seems that way as we are influenced by the halo effect. It is impossible to keep an entirely open mind.
That being said, I try to keep a decently-open mind. Keyword: try.
I live under a rock when it comes to politics and current events. It is so easy to get swept up in movements and then look back a few years later and realize that one had no idea what was actually happening. I just don't feel that I am able to trust or fully support anything that I am not entirely sure about. Does anyone really know what happens in politics? I'm not saying all the government does is lie to us and I'm not saying that we ought to know everything (as that may do more harm than good). Perhaps I'll be able to throw my faith into something someday.
I also draw, paint, play piano, sing (in the shower), run, sleep, eat, take selfies, and collect human hearts (just kidding, they're elephant hearts)
