Excuse me while I act like the excitable young girl I am

Today is the best day ever for two reasons:

I just got a hair cut. Hair cut days are always good days (Unless, of course, your hair cut looks bad. Which mine does not).

More importantly: The first issue of The Cluster came out today! My very first issue as an editor!

Here’s the front page!

I made this!

Here I am with my section! (This was before my hair cut. It’s a tad shorter now, in case you cared.)

Look how official I am!

Also, since classes haven’t started yet, I’ve had time to work on what I consider to be a really awesome blog post. Though you will all think I am completely crazy after reading it. So, look out for that in a week or so.

la vie, c’est belle,



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. Congratulations, Emily! I had a zoom in on that picture and everything has your name on it, which is awesome and means either your workload is already too big and you need to hire some writers, or you have an ego and access to a printing press.

      Haha since no one had moved in yet, the editors had to write all of the articles themselves. We didn’t have any staff writers. We won’t have any staff writers for our second issue either, since we already assigned stories. But after that, we will hopefully have lots and lots of writers, and I can tell them what to do!

      “Write this for me, peasants!”
