Hi! I'm Emily. Seventeen. Perpetually overcaffeinated Jane Austen fangirl, student of rhetoric, 5'3" tuba player, overenthusiastic debater, Jimmy Carter's staunchest defender, ferocious spellchecker, and cardigan connoisseur. Firmly dedicated to the principles of truth, justice, and wearing penguin sweaters at socially inappropriate times. Can usually be found sobbing over Downton Abbey or excitedly bouncing about books. This blog is a veritable hodgepodge of all these things.
