10 Things All The Emmas Of The World Want You To Know

There's a lot of Emmas out in the world, and sometimes it's frustrating!

Shoutout to all the Emmas in the world, I feel your pain. There are a lot of us, the meaning and origin of our name is literally "universal." Maybe, Emmas are meant to rule the universe?

I don't know, but we totally could. Here are ten things that the Emmas of the world want you to know about us.

1. It's Emma, not Emily!

I know sometimes I speak quietly, but it's not that hard to hear that it's just Emma! And no, Emma isn't short for Emily.

2. Not like Emma from "Friends"!

You're kidding, right? I was born and named way before Rachel was even pregnant.

3. If you call out our name and we don't turn around, we're not ignoring you.

We're just so used to hearing other Emmas being called we don't really register the name anymore. If you want our attention you're going to have to try something more unique.

4. We know we're probably not the first Emma that you've met.

Having a common name is super awkward when you have to battle out all the other Emmas that came before you. Stereotypes are wild.

5. Creating an email or a username is the worst.

Do you know how many Emmas have accounts out there? So many! So, so many! Even using a combination of a first and last name is impossible!

6. We're impossible to find on the internet.

Do you know how many Emmas there are on Facebook alone? If you don't have a full last name you're out of luck-- we're invisible.

7. There are not a ton of nicknames we can go by.

I do not look like an Emmy, sorry. And I don't exactly want my professors calling me "Em" or the other nicknames I've been given over the years. Guess I have to stick with Emma.

8. Yes, we've heard of all the famous Emmas out there.

Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Emma Roberts... us Emmas have a lot to live up to.

9. At least we can always find our name on a key chain.

Unless they're out of stock because there's too many Emmas!

10 Like it or not, it's my name.

Yeah, sometimes it sucks to have a super common name, but it's who we are! My parents named me Emma for a reason, and we're stuck with it for life.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
