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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
