Hello, there.

I’m Emily.

It seems you have found my page in this giant book known as the internet.

This is the story of how I had an adventure, and found myself doing and saying things altogether unexpected.

Panel 1


“God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.”

Martin Luther

Hallo, freunde.

Welcome to my blog. It is very nice to see you. *tips hat*

I’m Emily. I’m a twenty-year-old graduate student wasting away over English Literature in the rainy, woody Pacific Northwest of America. I’m a writer, professional reader, aspiring theologian, and a devoted servant of Jesu Christi.

I’m usually a wee bit different in a crowd of chaps, due to my obsessive love of Christian theology, literature, a plethora of very obscure philosophical notions, the ever complicated German language, and the odd pot of sumptuous Earl Grey tea with a couple of Lotus biscoff cookies. I go heavy on the classics, with an emphasis on Victorian Gothic, Realism, and 19th century existentialism. Dostoevsky and Nietzsche are the ghosts who haunt my writing desk, Charlotte Brontë comes to tea on rainy days, and Tolkien walks with me to linguistics classes. I have compulsive tendencies to pretentiously quote Oscar Wilde, yell insults in Thespian, and scream in Dostoevsky.

British television is my weakness, The Legend of Zelda is my guilty pleasure, and I’m often found wearing turtlenecks and slacks to class for the Aesthetic™.

Oh, and I’m also a Mexicana who will likely fight you for that last tamale (no, I’m afraid I will not negotiate). Conchas y café con mi literatura latina por favor.

Please do leave a comment and introduce yourself. I always love getting to know the new friends who pop in to say hello. You will make my day if you do. *blows kiss and offers hug*

Bis später!

The Artist’s Lament: A Love Letter to Miloš Forman’s Amadeus (1984)

Mozart and I send loads of warm and toasty guten tags to you, beloveds. I was walking through Mozart’s Viennese apartment at Domgasse 5 nearly three weeks ago now, and I really would very much like to go back. Please. For Wolfie. I love dear Wolfie. And in honor of his genius, I present today’s … Continue reading The Artist’s Lament: A Love Letter to Miloš Forman’s Amadeus (1984)
