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.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
