X is for Xena, naturally!

To be totally honest I don’t know that many words that begin with X, and the only one that really came to mind was: Xena! Xena (as in the warrior princess, not the dwarf planet currently known as Eris) was my first real TV crush and remains one of my major on-screen heartthrobs. I mean, she’s hot, she’s funny, she Continue reading X is for Xena, naturally!

Undergrad For Life

Okay, maybe “for life” is a bit of an exaggeration, but I have been an Undergrad for quite a while now. It’s nearly 5 years since I started doing Arabic, and it’ll be at least one more year until I get my Bachelor’s Degree. That’s twice as long as it “should” take, but I don’t mind. The main reason why I’m Continue reading Undergrad For Life

Teddies, Teddies everywhere

I wanted to play with her all the time. Maybe even a bit more often than that. We drifted apart for a few years Continue reading Sister, Soulmate, Star

A Born Organizer

I’ve always been into organizing. I don’t just mean that I’ve always been good at it, but that I’ve always found it to be enjoyable in some way. My parents have told me that as a toddler, I could spend hours arranging the plastic containers in the kitchen (you know, Tupperware, empty ice cream bins, that sort of thing) along Continue reading A Born Organizer

Why I never wrote Harry Potter Fanfiction

The first fandom I was a part of was Harry Potter. There had been other TV shows, books and movies before that I was also a big fan of (Xena, for one) but it wasn’t until HP that I experienced the full fandom experience: looking at fanart online, discussing with other fans, reading up on trivia, memorizing the most peculiar Continue reading Why I never wrote Harry Potter Fanfiction

Hello, World! It’s Emma calling.

When you start a new WordPress blog, a placeholder post is created with the title “Hello World”. Well, that seems to sum up what I want to say right now quite well. Hello, World. This is my blog. Welcome. My name is Emma. I’m a writer. I’m other things too, and if you want to know more about me, you Continue reading Hello, World! It’s Emma calling.
