    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

The City of Motion

London is a city of motion: people moving, cars whizzing, wind blowing, sound waves bouncing, birds flying… It all goes on and on and on. I find it beautiful yet slightly overwhelming, inspiring yet also tiring. It presents itself as a bit of a contradiction in my mind. I love the feeling of being busy and productive, like you’re making a difference in the world, but, sometimes, I get tired and need a break. Last night, I received some more bad news from back home, as if my family needs any more of that, and my heart is aching. I am still happy, content, and confident, but I also feel a note of blue striking my soul strings. It is easy for me to want and wish to be home with my family in a time as such, and I do wish I could be there for them all, to squeeze them and show them how much I care. But, life must move forward. For now, I am using my city of motion to inspire me, support me, and encourage me to keep pressing on. Although sadness and worry has reintroduced itself to my family, I must find a way to keep living life to the fullest as I am young and life really is short. All I can do is be sure I remind my loved ones how much I love them while I’m 4,000 miles away. x
