the world according to emma.

 I'm awkward, open-hearted, and often in my own little world. To this day I can't write straight on unlined paper. I run a blog called The Cupcake Update. Unless otherwise stated, I don't own these photos. If something isn't cited correctly, please let me know.

And I ain’t built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally,
Because I am a queen

“Well, since nobody’s awake, I guess I’ll go to the office.”

Excuse me, have you read A Confederacy of Dunces? Tell me how one could like Ignatius J. Reilly.
