Emmel El-Fiky
Hi! I'm Emmel El-Fiky. I've been told that I'm kind of funny, which I choose to take as a compliment, and I like to believe that I have pretty good taste in music. I like to bike, play guitar, fence, create movies, read, and write. I also may or may not have an addiction to nail art, but I don't think it's too dangerous of a habit, aside from the fumes. I like taking pictures (with my phone, I'm an amateur,) and watching movies, especially if they're from the '80s. I love live music and collecting books, and at one point I had three copies of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and I don't really know why. I like to voice my opinion and tell people about things, all things, and so I guess that makes blogging a pretty good idea.

As a teen, I struggle with identity. Not in a "fake ID" kind of way -- more in an appearance and personality kind of way. I think we all do. As teens, we are constantly trying to make ourselves our ideal person, whether it be by dressing a certain way,...

Creating the Perfect Playlist For Any and Every Occasion

If you're like me, then you probably have such a necessity for music that you're probably listening to it right now. In which case, you might also have about a dozen or so playlists saved for the most random occasions. Some of us, however, are not as "in tune" (see...
