About Me


Congratulations, you’ve stumbled upon the ramblings of a strange 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 13/4 (too young if you ask me!). I decided to *almost* wipe the slate clean when starting university; 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. I guess this is kind of my own underworld, a place that is just mine, separate from my regular life.

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’d love to be in a musical, particularly Phantom of the Opera. I’m a huge fan of Elvis Presley, The Beatles, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac… a lot of classic rock. I’ve been lucky enough to perform in many professional settings, including concerts, at weddings, and on BBC Radio! I’ve got a few covers on YouTube…

I also like to generally be creative: in 2012, I won a mural competition for the 20th Century Fox & Tim Burton film ‘Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter’. It was probably the coolest thing that has ever happened to me! I’ve also won a few photography competitions at King’s College.

I haven’t got much else to say, but I’m on Twitter if you wanna chat!
