Call me Emily. It's my name. My name is Emily. Please use it. I am LDS. I like it a lot. Please don't try to make me feel bad about that. I don't appreciate it. I don't want to argue points of religion with you.
I'm what you might call "set in my ways," meaning I like things to remain the same. However, I'm pretty open-minded to other people and their ways of life. I'd appreciate the same courtesy.
I've dabbled in a lot of things, one of them being photography. I don't claim to be amazing, but I'd be more impressed by your profile picture if you took a little care, considering things like lighting and point of view. What I'm getting at is that I'd appreciate it if you put your shirt back on. No one wants to see that. Also, don't take a picture when the main light source is right behind you. And I know that the bathroom mirror is really convenient, but... don't.
I really appreciate it when people spell things correctly and while I am prone to the occasional emoticon, they should not be used in place of end punctuation.
I like to write and I like reading, though sometimes I go a few months without doing either a lot, depending on how much I have to work or how much time I spend strumming my ukulele absentmindedly. I also like the internet, which is another reason why I don't read/write as much as I would like to think that I want to.
I used to play the violin somewhat well, though I had to stop for my health (I will forever regret it.) I dabble in piano-playing and hope I will have the opportunity in the future to dabble a little more. I used to write monthly articles for several local newspapers, but I still (try to) maintain a blog that no one reads (emilysnonsensicalrambling.wordpress.com).
I have a wide taste in everything. There are few things that I truly dislike... That's a lie. There are a lot of things that I dislike to some degree. There are few things that I actually care about enough to hate.
Another thing I value in people is a sense of pride in their appearance. I'm not saying that everyone has to be beautiful, but shower regularly (at least two or three times a week) and comb your hair. Appearance is important, no matter how much people tell you. It reflects how much respect you have for yourself and everyone likes a person who respects themselves.
I'm a Chemistry major at Weber State University.
I think I used the word "dabble" enough to fill my quota for the day. Cheers.
