Hello! If you don't know me, my name is Em. I'm eighteen (as of the day that this was written, and who knows when I'll update this again), and I've never really been the best at introducing myself, but to give you a little bit of cliche information about me: I've been writing since I was seven. My mom used to buy me composition notebooks, the black ones, and I would fill up all of the pages with glitter pens that I bought at my school's book fair. Most of the time, I was writing fanfiction without even realizing what fanfiction actually was. I've got one too many rough drafts of Harry Potter and Twilight in a drawer somewhere.
Besides writing, I'm actually obsessed with photography. I absolutely love taking pictures, which started in high school when I joined yearbook, and it's sort of sprung into a hobby that takes my mind away from the bad and allows me to focus on the good. I'm also obsessed with tattoos, and I've got five beautiful ones right now, but that number will probably go up a couple before the year is up.
On a more serious note, I wanted to address something else: if anyone reading this is struggling, whether it be from mental health, domestic abuse, sexual assault, or otherwise, and has no one to talk to, please send me a message. I've been through the lot of all the bad things this world puts on people, especially on those that are young. However, the suicide prevention lifeline is another option for anyone in need (Suicide Prevention: 1-800-273-8255). Remember you are loved. You matter, and there is always someone who cares.
Maybe a little.
