Reading Habits

     Reading is one of those things that just about everyone you meet will have a different opinion about. I personally have tons of friends who are obsessed with reading - and I mean OBSESSED. It makes me feel like I'm totally against reading.       Don't get me wrong, I do like to read. I'm just not obsessed with it. I prefer reading in moderation. I go through phases. Half the time I adore reading, and half the time I can't sit still for even two minutes with a book.             I guess I'm more of a writer. For me, it seems much more enjoyable when I can make characters do whatever I want them to. When I can control them.       However, sometimes I read a lot. Like a lot-lot. Sometimes it actually surprises me how much I've read. I'm not a reader, I think to myself. But somehow, I read?       Weird.       I have recently found that along with strengthening your brain and increasing your memory, reading may also help you live longer and reduce stress leve

I have recently repainted my bedroom. I read somewhere that painting your room blue can make you more creative, so I knew I wanted some shade of blue. I looked through paint palets, searching for the right color. It was so much harder than I thought. I found about seven different shades of blue, and it took me two weeks before I actually decided on one.              I kept searching, and finally, I found it! The perfect bright blueish turquoise that would suit my furniture so well. A few weeks later, I bought the paint and before I knew it, my room was complete.            So that's my story. Not super interesting, I know. It's the typical story of how any room gets painted. But This is too short for a post so I have to keep writing.            You know how I said painting your room blue can make you more creative? Well, turns out that it allows you to be more open-minded, to think outside the box. That's why it's also a great color to paint an office where a lot of bra

Common Names

Emma. That's my name. It always has been, probably always will be. I cannot tell you the number of times I have run into someone will my name. I have always been told, "Everyone is unique and special. We are all one of a kind." If only this were true.       Don't get me wrong, I am very unique. My favorite food is black beans, I cry more often than most people, and my hiccups sound like a dying goose. But my name, it's so basic. In first grade, there was another Emma in my class, and our teacher made us sit beside each other. From that point on, she was Emma J and I was Emma L. And I was called Emma L  for four years.       Did you know that my name is the second most popular name in the world? Just writing that makes me feel so generic. All though I guess I feel better knowing that all the Olivias out there are feeling worse than me, knowing that their name is number one in the world. At least both of these names are good ones. Just think about what life would be
