“This above all; to thine own self be true.” – William Shakespeare (Hamlet)
I am a journalism major and English minor at Wayne State University in Midtown, Detroit. I am a product of the 90s, daughter, sister, aunt, music enthusiast, Netflix viewer, coffee addict and make-up hoarder. I’m the nerd who takes Shakespeare and classical mythology for fun and geeks out over documentaries. I have a varied interest in all things music, equal rights and literature.
This blog is meant to give readers a fun look at things through the eyes of a twenty-something small town girl armed with a Nikon camera, Macbook and AP Stylebook.
You can find me tweeting under @EmilyRidener, posting photos on Instagram under @ejridener and shooting emails under firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also manage two other blogs which can be found here:
