Welcome to my apartment. I promise I’m not 14.

Well folks, I’m back at college.

And I’m super excited about it. I have an on campus apartment this year, and it’s basically awesome. I get to play house and cook food and decorate like a grown up.

Let me qualify that last part: My living room is decorated like a grown up living room. My room, however, is not.

Yes, those are Disney posters. But I promise there are grown up things in my room! Like my calendar. And my journalism and french text books (I keep them for reference).

Classes don’t actually start for another week or so. I moved in early to work on the campus newspaper. I am features editor, and I’m quite proud of my position! On top of working at the paper, studying and being involved with women’s discipleship for BCM (Baptist Collegiate Ministry) I am going to be pretty busy this year.

So what I’m trying to say is, my posts might become less frequent. It’s not you. It’s me. And I’m totally not breaking up with you. Just understand that If I don’t post for a couple weeks, it’s because I’m busy. Not because I don’t love you all. Because I love you all a lot. Want to know why?

The turn out for my poll was far better than I ever imagined! Almost 80 per cent of you voted that my new “Gravatar” be Knittin’ Emily. And it shall be so! I’ve even decided to put the picture on my About Me page. I may make it my Twitter picture, too since I’m tired of my Twitter picture.

No one at all voted for Scholarly Emily. Apparently you don’t like the fact that I graduated from high school. It’s okay, though. I wasn’t so sure how I felt about high school myself.

So, dear readers, until we meet again, know that you are all awesome. Stay classy, WordPress.

“Peace out” doesn’t translate well into french,



About Emily

I tend to embody the definition of "first world problems," so one night when I knew I needed to shower but didn't want to--in true first-world fashion--I created this blog. There were ulterior motives, however. I'm a journalism and french major at Mercer University, which means I enjoy writing (and France, apparently). I also like to think that I'm witty, and that the world needs to hear (or, rather, read) my wit. "La Vie, Selon Emily" means "Life, According to Emily." Emily, being myself. Now that that's out of the way, who is Emily? Funny you should ask, because I've made a short list: I was raised in the Georgia suburbs on a beautiful little thing they call "sarcasm." My parents taught me at a young age to appreciate this age-old art, and I like to think I've mastered their craft. I'm also quite the girly girl: Disney princesses were my childhood, and dressing up is my favorite. Despite whatever conclusions you may have drawn from #2, yellow, not pink, is my favorite color. I love commas, and feel that I use them too liberally. I love thinking and learning new things, and I love making others think and learn new things. I am a voracious reader, and I love the word "voracious." I just realized that I've used the word "love" entirely too much thus far. I sing in the shower. I sing in the car. I pretty much sing a lot, and I like to think I'm decent at it. If you give me grape juice, I'll be your friend. I will also be your friend if you love on me (examples include giving me a hug, rubbing my back or arm, playing with my hair, cuddling with me, etc.). I have two mottos in life: Any dress with pockets is a dress worth having, and any man who wears bow ties is a man worth dating (I will acknowledge that there are exceptions to these rules, as with all rules). Semi-finally, but most importantly, I am an utterly depraved sinner saved by God's unfailing grace and love. I will leave you with this french proverb: "A l'œuvre, on connaît l'artisan."

  1. That’s awesome that you’re on the campus newspaper committee! I was going to do a filthy-yet-emasculating joke like ‘so this is what the inside of a girl’s room looks like’, but you’re a classy girl, so I won’t.

      Yes I’m so excited! I will probably do a post when the first issue comes out, so everyone can know my excitement when the paper reads: Emily Farlow, Features Editor.

      My roommates’ room is better decorated than mine. Unfortunately I didn’t inherit a knack for interior design like most girls.

      And I try to be as classy as I can, since sadly, there is much less class in the world than there should be.
