The name's Emma. I have an extensive collection of David Bowie photos and I watch entirely too much television. I spend the rest of my time knitting or with my nose in a book. I live in the natural state, but my heart is in Alaska.

Here is my wish list of dumb things I like.

Baby, you come knocking on my front door
Same old line you used to use before
And I said yeah, well, what am I supposed to do?
I didn’t know what I was getting into

I wish I didn’t feel like my feelings are not valid. I feel like a human garbage pile. That’s the only wish fulfillment I’m interested in.

I just don’t know if I could like being around one person enough to marry them and spend a fucking eternity with them. It’s not a feminist thing. I think it is just an Emma thing. I think I’m dead inside???

I can’t stop listening to that stupid Shins song in that Zach Braff Movie commercial, but it captures the feeling in my heart so well.
“You feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun.”
I love that. My heart is so full of happiness right now I could cry. I feel like I’m thawing from the inside out. This trip has really helped me in a lot of ways, and I’ve let go of a lot of things that were holding me back from feeling this good. I have loved every second, and I’ve spent half of my time here working. That is how positive this whole environment has been. I will be sad to go but I am more excited that I have ever been to start a new chapter in my life. I just have to be strong and do what is best for me. I know I can do this.
“I told you about all those fears, and away they did run.”
I’ve conquered a lot of mine. I’ve got a long way to go, but I really changed so much I hardly recognize myself. I
Love. It.

I might actually spontaneously combust soon. Only time will tell.

One thing I will say about netflix’s adaptation of Orange is the New Black, which I love, is that they have done a great injustice to the character of Pennsatucky. Read Piper Kerman’s novel, I promise you will have a whole new look at the prison system and the faults of our justice system as a whole. And you will hate Pennsatucky a whole lot less.

My favorite thing dudes do is publicly tell you how sensitive they are to feminism and then privately tell you that you’re a bitch and tragically “not cool”.

Today I am in Homer, Alaska for the solstice festival. We are staying in a cabin and it is incredible. From the deck I can see a glacial ice shelf to my left and to my right I can see Mt. Redoubt, an active volcano. I am so lucky! This is a beautiful and I feel like I am a part of it right now. Greetings from the end of the road, y’all!
