I'm Emily I'm FINALLY a Speech-Language Pathologist after going to school for way too long. I'm a Gemini- excessively talkative (with my hands), double pesonality, emotional, indecisive, opinionated, a tendency to be overly giggly, loves a good debate- annoyingly Gemini (even to myself). I have a fabulously awesome boyfriend and three wildly energetic, creative, adorable, lovable, step kids who bring so much joy to my life each and everyday. I have synesthesia which is this really crazy neurological phenomenon that allows me to mix senses - I mix sound and taste- so I am a lexical-gustatory synesthete. Basically, this means that I taste names and words. My name tastes like melting ice cubes. I don't get any great artistic inspiration from this- just hunger pangs. But still! I'm pretty proud of my synesthetic oddities. I'm Italian, Swiss, Polish, and English- but I say I'm Italian, because that's what I feel like I am. I talk too much and too fast and I’m too loud. Sometimes I’m fiesty and other times I’m chill. I'm unorganized although I'm trying to get myself together. I love tons of things. I try to see beauty in everything. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ocean with every inch of my soul and I love the streets of Philly just as much. I wish that I would have done more in the way of artistic endeavors. So sometimes I feel creatively frustrated. I hope this changes in the near future. My family and friends are the most important things in my life. I spend most of my time- obviously- chillin out with my family and friends, laughing, dancing around, singing too loud in the car (because I think I'm a Motown diva- move over Diana Ross), watching movies, laying on the beach, playing soccer , cooking for people, and drinking wine. Straight up! Gotta Keep it Real. Also, I love JJ from "Goodtimes" 'cause he's Dy-no-mite! And if you talk smack on NJ I will fight you. Also, I'm fabulously vegetarian and I'm gonna live till I'm 100! That's a whole lotta Emily. Yep, that's me in a nutshell. Well, almost...

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars...
