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!

Emma Watson

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.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
