Hi, my name is Emelia (though most call me Emily) and I grew up in the Chicago suburbs. I played volleyball in elementary and badminton throughout high school. I graduated college about 2 years ago and earned an associates degree in film and broadcast.
Now that we got all the facts out of the way, I will say that I consider myself as a creative, thoughtful and loving individual who likes to have fun…in moderation :P
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working in retail and getting a few freelance jobs in
editing. I'm applying to and interviewing for companies located in
My end goal is to be editing documentaries or something
I’m really good at
I'm really good at listening, being a trusted friend, oh and I
totally rock at Badminton!
The first things people usually notice about me
I've heard people describe me as super shy and sweet when they
first hang out with me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"The Fault In Our Stars" by John Green is my absolute favorite book. DFTBA.
Just because I have a film degree doesn't mean I'm a movie buff.
However, I need to give shout outs to Slumdog Millionaire, Horrible Bosses, Titanic, I Am Sam, Les Mis and Moulin Rouge. I'm in LOVE with anything old school Disney (Frozen is so cute though), Studio Ghibli and PIXAR!
The Middle is hilarious! Pawn Stars is awesome! The Big Bang Theory is amusing! Spongebob rocks! If you don't know Drake & Josh then just go crawl in a corner. HGTV is my guilty pleasure. I love Ellen! SAO blew my mind!
When it comes to music, as much as I hate to say it, my favorite songs are probably always on the top 40 charts...I know, I'm not as much of a hipster as I'd like to say I am.
Hawaiian Pizza. Mac & Cheese. CHOCOLATE.
The six things I could never do without
3. Emma Watson
5. Family & Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I can create. I love anything dealing with Photoshop, Motion Graphics and Editing. I'm super creative so any new gadget that makes professional quality inexpensive amazes me. I love the idea of giving someone with lesser means a chance to showcase their talent.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating Queso dip while watching movies and playing poker with my friends....it sounds weird, but it is super fun and the story of my life.
Bowling with co-workers.
Going to some sort of concert or local event! I always have a blast at those!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love everything Disney…but who doesn't?
You should message me if
you'd like to have a nice chat.
