Hi, I'm another Emily! (suprise suprise!)
I live in Melbourne, Australia and am 16 years old. Heaps of my friends have Emily Strange clothing, but its too expensive for me (being the cheapskate i am). Apparently though I look freakishly like her...not to mention, you know, the name similarity...
I have another friend (not on livejournal) who is called Emily and we get the biggest kicks out of saying hi Emily! and when we call each other having our parents go "Emily, it's Emily". Yes, slightly pathetic-loserish (IM COOL), but yes.
This community is very coool... I feel so special having a community with my name..starting rambling now, shall end here.
yay, i got my emily tshirt, yay!!!!

Yes someone told me about this community lol. So I guess I joined it...hellow all. I'm uh...*feels incredously stupid* Emily.../Emilee/Emlee. And yea. :D Feel free to IM me if you want, I'm usually on. Yay.
as the aforementioned emily smith, i am disappointed by the lack of emilys in this community... surely there are more of us! oh well, better give it time.
i haven't had many close encounters with other emilys, other than an emily in the same year level who looks slightly similar to me.. it gets confusing for other people:
"do you know emily?"
"the one with glasses"
"they both have glasses!"
i want an emily strange t shirt so desperately, but they cost so much...
I have a friend called Emily Smith, she is more of an Emily than I am. I think I will suggest that she join this community.
i'm a 13 year old Emily from pa. it sucks, theres another girl named Emily in my english class, so when the teacher calls on her i always think its me shes calling on
i'll be 14 tomorrow. :D
when i was in class today, teaching, i had an issue that involved the emily name. some of my students were talking about a friend of theirs named emily, and i turned around, responding. i guess i haven't gotten used to this them only being allowed to call me by my last name.
it was a weird moment.
hi! I'm a 21 year-old Emily in my last year of college in Nashville TN. There were FIVE Emilys in my graduating class from high school... and my parents thought they were being original....
My Emily story is my shirt. I got a shirt from EmilyStrange.com a few years ago. Its light pink with a girl wearing headphones on it that says "Emily Rocks". I have tons of people ask me about it every time its worn. Its great.
I like this idea for a community for Emilys :]. I am also living in Maryland. I'm 24 and will be 25 on September 21st. I've known some Emilys, but not too many. All through middle school, there was another Emily in my class.. we sat next to each other. I met another Emily when I was in DC yesterday too ;P.
So anyway, I just wanted to say hi :].
this is the first entry by the first emily.
hello, my name is emily, of course, emily joy to be exact, and i created this community. i am 22, i live in maryland, and i am a high school teacher. i like singing, writing, math, law and order, and for anything else you can check my user info at beforeisleep
the most interesting part about being an emily for me, well at least the most annoying, was when i was waiting tables. since emily has been the most popular baby name since 97, there are alot of young emilies running around. and waiting tables in a restaurant and constantly listening to mothers yell "emily!", and turning around and going "what?" is really funny sometimes.
i hope more people join. i would really like to have an active community here. but here's hoping.
