Hello everyone! >‿‿◕
I go by Ema, which is not my real name but I’m not going to tell you my real name, so deal with it.
I really don’t want this to be a novel (something I am definitely capable of), so I’m going to try summing myself up in a few “mini-novel” bullet points. You don’t have to read it all, but I assume that if you’ve clicked to go to this page, you at least want to know SOMETHING.
☆ – I’m 16 years old, from the East Coast, USA.
☆ – Click here to see my face.
☆ – I’m definitely a bit of a romantic. Well, that would be an understatement. Let’s just say I get very caught up in my own imagination, and while sometimes I may think that my daydreams are so much better than real life, I try to keep it realistic and remember that I’ll make my daydreams come true in the future.
☆ – I LOVE HAYAO MIYAZAKI. I grew up watching his movies My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service. He is my idol. I honestly just can’t express the love I have for him.
☆ – I’m super-introverted, but trying to change that. Not sure if it’s something you really CAN change, but I’ll try my best.
☆ – I love reading, but lately high school has really just made me too busy to get around to doing it now. Every now and then I’ll be able to, but lately… nada.
☆ – I also like writing. I’ve won NaNoWriMo for the past two years. I think more people should try it; it’s not only fun, but makes you realize just what you’re capable of. This is also something I wish I had more time for.
☆ – I think this whole “no time” excuse is stupid, but I’m just going to go with it.
☆ – I’m very insecure. About everything. And very, very indecisive. Trying to change that too. But I think I just see both sides of matters too often.
☆ – My favorite color is yellow. This is more or less influenced by my love for FT Island. The story of why they are #1 in my heart, forever and always, is one that is too long to be appropriate for this page.
☆ – No, I guess I’m not a Primadonna. Technically, I call myself an Insprimadonna. I… love Infinite. And Myungsoo. I think the complex with FT Island and Infinite can basically be explained as such… I fell in love with FT Island first, so they got dibs. Also, their music just stirs something inside me that I never experienced before listening to them. I used to be in love with Song Seunghyun, but I think now it’s more that I just love all the members as a whole. Then, Infinite came along and, oh yeah, they were the reason I stopped loving Seunghyun as much, because I found a lover in Kim Myungsoo. Infinite feels like my ideal family. All of the members have aspects that are just so admirable and clearly I am having a hard time expressing this. I don’t just like Infinite for their members, though; I love their music and dances and everything about them.
☆ – Not going to delve into why I love Myungsoo. That just involves the relating of too many fantasies and remembered facts about him that would make me seem like a wacko creeper that needs to see a shrink. Oh, what am I saying, I’m already that, but still. Not going to go into it.
☆ – Away from my creepy loves, some of my normal loves… I love stars, strawberries, fashion, traveling, foreign languages and cultures, and I guess all the pretty stuff on my blog, not limited to balloons and Ferris wheels and the like.
☆ – Oh, a more normal fact! I clearly speak English, but I’m also learning Spanish at school and Korean outside of school! I’m Cantonese, and I can speak/understand the language, but cannot write or read it. Which is a shame…
☆ – I consider myself quite smart compared to some people. I’m in the International Baccalaureate program at my school, but aside from that I personally feel like I think too much about some things. I’m fascinated by the way people work, not biology and such, but more why people would do this or that, what effect something has on people. I love reading articles on Yahoo! - it’s how I stay up-to-date on the world outside, and a major source of all the random crap I know. I think too much, if that’s possible. At least, I think too much according to society’s standards.
☆ – I love to travel so much you have no idea. It’s a shame I can’t do it that often, though. Also, yes, I am that depressing person that basically stays in her house unless she has to go to school or volleyball.
☆ – Speaking of which, I play volleyball! Surprise surprise. I play for my school’s girl’s varsity team as well as a club team. I used to play badminton, basketball, and ice skating, the latter of which I wish I hadn’t stopped doing. I also do hip-hop dance with my school’s dance club as a side hobby.
☆ – I play piano, and I used to play violin and flute, each of them for a year. Piano is definitely more of a hobby; I don’t do recitals. I used to think I want to learn to play the guitar, but I’ve resolved to leave that to my future boyfriend. (He can serenade me. I told you I’m a romantic.)
☆ – I want to clear up something about my music tastes. I am not a Kpop addict. In fact, right now on my playlist I have 4 English songs and 2 Korean songs. In general, my music tastes change all the time. I don’t really like mainstream American music. I guess I go for more indie music. As for Kpop, while I love FT Island and Infinite, my rule is that I listen to what I like to hear.
☆ – I love city environments. Like, New York City-type of city. I dream of going to Seoul.
☆ – While reading this, you may think I’m a very calm, rational, mellow person. But I’m warning you, I can be an emotionally unstable person. I can get veryyy hyper. But I also cry way too easily, and freak out and panic too easily. I’m also super straightforward about things. I have little patience for games and such. If you want to tell me something, tell me. If you hint at telling me something but don’t, forget you.
☆ – I love volunteering, with a passion. Especially volunteering in other countries. I just love to help people that I consider less fortunate in terms of wealth. In many cases, these people are more fortunate in terms of… life overall? My heart belongs with an indigenous tribe of BriBri Indians living in Yorkin, Costa Rica. They are considered the poorest people in Costa Rica, and you cannot find them on Google Maps. I was lucky enough to have the chance to live and volunteer with them, and over the course of 3 days, I fell in love with the people and the environment. Most of all, I realized that even though they are poor, they really are some of the happiest people I’ve ever known.
☆ – I’m so bad at explaining things. Exhibit A, this page.
Well, clearly I have not succeeded with my goal of not writing a novel. If you stuck through it this far, CONGRATULATIONS! If not, well you wouldn’t be reading this, but it’s okay if you didn’t.
Now I really want to write a tiny blurb about this blog.
First off, I imagine this blog to be like a little telescope into my mind. I basically hope that the overall aura of this blog reflects the type of personality I wish people would see in me. Second, I post what I want to post. I’ll reblog myself if I want to, and I don’t give a crap what you think. If you like my posts, follow me. If you don’t, then… don’t follow me, duh. And if you’re going to follow me, please don’t unfollow unless it’s for good reason, because that breaks my poor heart (╥_╥) Third, I do use emoticons, because I think they’re cute and help me express my feelings. I don’t care if you don’t like it.
Hm… let’s end this on a happier note. I have recently become a Photoshop addict! I am really not that good, but I’m working at it and experimenting. I use a downloaded version that you can find on Toukie’s tumblr, and to see my edits, there’s a link on the sidebar, or you can click here.
Thank you for visiting my blog, and please enjoy your stay!
