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: eighteen-year-old English major, homeschool graduate, writer, bookworm, aspiring theologian, and a devoted servant of Jesus Christ.

I’m usually the one who’s just a little bit different in a crowd of people, 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 biscoff cookies.

I also love rainy days. And Gothic Literature.

It’s also worth noting that I’ve been waiting for Mr. Darcy to show up since I was twelve years old. He’ll get here eventually. I am certain that he’ll be pleased when I show him how I have improved my mind by extensive reading.

Indeed, I pour constantly over my Bible, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jane Austen, the Brontë Sisters, C.S. Lewis, Shakespeare, and Tolkien’s Middle Earth Sagas.

This blog is a compilation of all the thoughts and ideas floating around in my never ending Mind Palace. I hope you’re inspired by the many sublime and wondrous truths I learn as I read and write my way through all of time and space.

Did I also mention that I happen to think bowties are cool? (If you know…you know.)

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!

On Being an Academically Inclined Latina and Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

You know, I do not talk about my heritage as often as I would enjoy. For those of you who are unaware, I am a mixed bag of three races: Mexican (50%), African (25%), and European (25%). You can read all about my thoughts on being multi-racial in this post I wrote around this time … Continue reading On Being an Academically Inclined Latina and Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

“You will run, it will walk”: Grief and the Twelfth Doctor

My favorite incarnation of the Doctor is the twelfth. Peter Capaldi. Bottle-top crunching eyebrows and grumpy Scottish accent. When I first started watching Capaldi’s take on the Doctor, I was somewhat indifferent and had to adjust quite rapidly to the sudden mood shift. First of all, allow me to explain that until I watched Capaldi’s … Continue reading “You will run, it will walk”: Grief and the Twelfth Doctor
