About

You can call me by my pen name, Emriyus, The Existentialist, or both.

If you are unaware, a pen name (nom de plume) or pseudonym is a name, specifically a fake one used by a writer or artist with intent to hide their real name used in their personal life.

I started this website as an outlet for my thoughts and the art I create. My main goal here is to help myself continue creating my meaning of life. Maybe it could help others too.

I write about a variety of topics… from my personal life experiences to philosophical theories and homemade recipes. I keep existentialism* in mind when I write and am always looking to learn new things. That said, there is always more to learn.

*existentialism is a philosophical theory and the study of existence; being. The belief that our individual freedom, choices and experiences create our individual meaning of life. I personally believe this to be true, and that human beings do change through experience, their individual choices and actions through freedom; free will, the ability to choose.
