n, n~


It's like any ordinary tuesday in the little shabby town of Neath. It's raining, it's cold, and Savers has ran out of hair-dye ¬ , ¬#.
Atleast i'm beginning to enjoy College now. We've began a start on our courses now, especially in Photography. We're doing a technique (which i can't remember the name of) which doesn't involve a camera. Basically it's just projecting a silhouette of an object onto light sensitive paper. I've come out with some cool effects. Once i've got scans i'll place them on my deviantart. 

 Day 7: A Song That Reminds You Of A Certain Event


Whenever I think or hear this song, it reminds me of one of my best friends, Ray who sadly passed away four years ago. This song was played at his funeral. I'll always remember it. The turn out, nearly all his school came. The upbeat reggae beats pretty much sums up Raymonds character :) No wonder this was one of his favourite songs. 

Day 8: A Song That You Know All The Words To

After many games of 'Rockband2' and being one of the only few songs i can sing on there! I can say i know this song back to front and inside out. Garbage is definitely not GARBAGE! Shirley Manson is one of my idols. She's so talented and bloody gorgeous! 

Day 9: A Song You Can Dance To 

Ok, i have no idea since i don't really dance by will, only at parties which is to anything the DJ has. I do however like to bob my head to this song about Sushi on a japanese childrens programme hahaha.

I Should of Called in Sick Today


Well to be truthful i've been bored stiff with college. The subjects i've taken are no longer of interest to me :S Maybe it's just because it's the first week? Well, i'm bored and i'll just hang in there because i need the qualifications. 

Day 3: A Song That Makes You Happy
</lj-embed>The obvious choice would be something loud and poppy but no. I've always found something magical about 'Postcard's from Italy'. It never fails to lighten my mood especially the brass instrumental in the middle. It's so uplifting. People may find the vocals bland but that's what i love about it. It's just an easy going song. 

Day 4: A Song That Makes You Sad

This is just a simple song  consisiting of just vocals and piano and violin. It was made specifically for Tv programme, Skins. While the vocalist may not be brilliant her vocals are genuine and have a haunting depth which fit the lyrics perfectly.

Day 5: A Song That Reminds You Of Someone
This song reminds me of my boyfriend, Hin. I love him and i love this song! :D I was debating whether or not to put this under the song that makes me happy but i thought this category is better suiting. <3 It's such a happy fun song and the dance moves are win :D!

Day 6: A Song That Reminds You Of Somewhere


'Smile Like You Mean it' has to be one of my most favourite songs of all time by one of my favourite bands of all time, The Killers. I remember being completely mad about the Killers about 2 or 3 years ago and it was around about the time when i was visiting my father in London. So, this song always reminds me about London at night time on the motorway watching headlights and buildings zoom past in a pretty silhouette.

Break the Ice

Hello there.

Well my first day of college is over and to be honest it's pretty unimpressive hahaa. I can't wait until all the boring form signing is over and proper lessons begin! 

I'm quite a shy person so you can just imagine how I felt entering my new tutor group not knowing anybody. (Well I knew one person who I hadn't seen in five years who used to give me lovehearts hahaa). We started off doing an 'icebreaker' - the task was to pair up with someone and learn as much about them in five minutes and then introduce them. 

I did meet a few cool people and well, it's the first day so hopefully over time they'll become good friends fa :D! 

Day 2: Your Least Favourite Song
I don't really have a least favourite song. Hmmm...I suppose I like to stay clear of Miley Cyrus...she drives me insane ¬ , ¬# I won't link a video at all, I wouldn't like your ears to bleed.

i drink coffee not just ribena...

Hey there, this is my first post. After much convincing from my friend Katie (Hattyhathat), who I usually call Hachi(ko) because she reminds me of Nana Komatsu from Nana, I decided to start a fresh blog. 
Anyway here's a mini introduction from a petite blogger newbie.

[ x ]  My name is Mel   ( short for Melissa which means, in greek, honeybee and is also the latin name for lemonbalm.)                                                  

[ x ]
 I'm almost seventeen   ( meaning i'll be able to drive soon (i'm sorry if I crash into you at some point > , <)                                                         

[ x ]
 I'm filipino/welsh   (...mainly. - i'm very mixed race and proud!)                                                           

[ x ]
  I love my boyfriend <3 (His name is Hin and i've seen him everyday for the last week and a half and i still miss him when he goes away <3)

[ x ] My friends and family are amazing! (and if not slightly deranged but i wouldn't have you any other way!)

[ x ]
  I like coffee and ribena  ( not together though of course...)                                                                                                                               

[ x ]  I live on ramen
 (you should see my noodlebowl)                                                                                                                                                
[ x ]  I'm a gamer    (I especially love Final Fantasy, Devil May Cry, Rockband, Left 4 Dead and Street Fighter)                                

[ x ] Art is my life (if you're not busy stop by www.grapefruittea.deviantart.com)

[ x ] I've suddenly become a Katy Perry addict (I need to go to rehab...but you gotta admit, the cotton candy scented album is cool!)      


So that's pretty much the basics of my life at the moment. I'm about to start college tomorrow and despite going there since i was 3 (because i'm a child prodigy! Truthfully my mother works there) I'm quite nervous. But all should be well :D For my GCSE's I managed to acquire 2A*'s 5A's 4B's and 2C's(which were foundation courses so that was the highest i could get). The courses i'm taking this year are A-level Textiles, Photography, Graphic Design and Music. It should be interesting and fun :D!

Well, just to get this blog going, i thought i'd join Hachiko in the little music meme. (even though she's ahead of me ¬ , ¬#)

Day 1: Your Favourite Song

I have so many favourite songs, it's impossible to choose only one! hmm....

(...after many hours of thinking...)


The song is called Cloudy World by possibly the most beautiful person I have ever seen in my life, Olivia Lufkin. This woman is so inspiring. She is truly my idol. The song is basically, in my interpretation, about be able to say and do the things we dream about in our hearts.

Well that's all for now. I've babbled on a bit haven't I?
n , n~ Goodbye for now
