Congratulations, you’ve stumbled upon the ramblings of a strange English/Italian girl who spends too much time on the Internet…
About my blog
I started writing my first blog when I was around the age of 13-14 (too young if you ask me!). I decided to *almost* wipe the slate clean when starting university in 2014: I moved over to WordPress, deleted the majority of my old posts, and changed my blog name to Emily Underworld, a name that randomly came into my head one day. I study Classics, which includes a lot of Greek Mythology… my favourite stories are all about Hades and the Underworld. Welcome to my underworld!
What else I do with my life
I’m currently undertaking my MA in Classics and Archaeology at King’s College & UCL. I’m planning on continuing my studies by working towards a PhD, with the aim of pursuing academia, or museum curation… or both!
I’m really into music: I play the guitar, a bit of piano, and I’m a soprano singer. I love musicals, particularly Phantom of the Opera. My favourite musicians include Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Nirvana… and Mozart. I’ve been lucky enough to perform in many professional settings, including concerts, at weddings, and on BBC Radio. Currently, music is a hobby and I keep the songs I’ve written to myself and my friends, but who knows, maybe I’ll upload something on YouTube one day.
I also enjoy art and general creativity: in 2012, I won a mural competition for the 20th Century Fox & Tim Burton film ‘Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter’, it was awesome. I’ve also won a few photography competitions at King’s College, and once posed nude as Aphrodite!
