Simply beautiful.

I thought I should share with you what in my opinion is one of the greatest trailers I have ever seen. It is delicious, artistic, and nothing other than beautiful. Check it out if you like!

(just a quick reminder. This is the trailer for the 5th series of Skins. It has already aired, seeming how Skins has now finished their 6th and last series.)

A great feeling.

Good day!

Over here in Sweden it’s currently 2 P.M (or as we say 14:00), but I don’t know where it is you’re reading from or what the time is there. So Good Day will have to do.

Yesterday I finally started reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I bought it around the time I bought New Moon, but seeing what happened to the Twilight franchise (mostly the films making them all go the wrong way, and the last book, Breaking Dawn) I have been putting off reading it until now. I was spurred on by seeing the new teaser trailer for the new upcoming movie, starring Saoirse Ronan. I’ll admit that I didn’t fully grasp what the book was about by the time I bough it and decided to finish the Twilight series first, however after reading Breaking Dawn I was rather disappointed of how the series had turned out and thus I was also a little scared of what The Host would be like. But I finally got over my fear (and realized what it was actually about) and started reading The Host. I have only gotten 110 pages or so, so far, but from what I have read it is really good. Of course I have about 500 pages more to read, and who knows what could happen during those 500 pages? Probably a lot. But judging from what I have read it is truly good. So beautifully written. Different from most other books I’ve read. Different from Twilight. I didn’t really think Stephenie Meyer could write anything other than Twilight, but The Host is so different from that. So if it continues to be as good as it has been for these past 110 pages then she has proven (to me at least) that she is truly a great writer. Although the last book, the massive amount of fanatic fans and the films ruined the Twilight series for me. One thing the book has never failed to be is to be written beautifully. Stephenie Meyer has a way of forming her sentences, using her words. Simply put, what she writes is nothing short of beautiful.

I’m currently at writing my 178th page of the third book about Erin. Reading The Host I got this strange urge to start writing about Farrow, however since it at that time was past midnight I suffocated that urge and went to bed. But even now, after waking up, well past after lunch, that urge still lingers inside. The need, the strong feeling to want to just write. Which is what I am going to go do now. It is a great feeling!

In Sweden the sky is gray, so here’s to brighten your day.

A lot of books, but I can at least write until I die.

Well, hello!

Today was an extremely uneventful day. And I mean that in every way. Absolutely nothing has happened today at all. I’ve spent the last couple of hours showering, watching the latest episodes of Glee and New Girl, and writing a post for my Swedish blog. Almost didn’t feel up for writing anything here today but I managed to get my act together and simply told myself that I had to write something here now that I have decided to start writing again.

So, Glee (and don’t worry – I won’t be giving any spoilers). I really liked this episode. Which is named Big Brother and is the 15th episode of the third season. As a big fan of Blaine since he is one of my favorite characters (the others are Brittany, Rachel, Sam and Kurt) it was nice to get to know a little bit more about him. Like the fact that he has a “famous” big brother for example. Played by the ever so lovely Matt Bomer. The songs were also great in this episode. Well, that’s all I’m going to say for the moment. I don’t want to spoil the fun for those of you that haven’t seen the episode yet. On the other hand, good news for Glee fans is that the series was officially picked up for a fourth season. So look forward to seeing a lot more out of Glee!

Onwards to New Girl then (don’t worry, no spoilers given here either!). Can I just start with saying that I adore Russell, and Jess together with Russell. Well, I completely love Jess and have since the first episode (I probably also always will). And this episode (the 20th of the first season, named Normal) was just as fun and packed with weird, hilarious moments as all of the other episodes so far. And good news for New Girl fans is that the show was picked up for a second season.

Since today was such an uneventful day I have very little to tell you, and that makes me somewhat sad. But I thought of sharing a little of what I have written on the third book about Erin so far, but then (as paranoid as I always is) I changed my mind. Instead I will now tell you that I have written 161 pages on the third book so far. And many more are to come. In fact after I have finished this post (and quickly updated my Tumblr) I will go back to writing.

When I think about it, I find it a little sick that I am already on the third book. This a story that I have kept to myself in my mind since I was 13 after all! It feels rather sick, and oddly pleasing to finally have written it down (although I still have a very long way left to go). There are going to be eight books in total after all. Only time can tell if I eventually will find enough courage to finally publish them one day. No, I’m just kidding. Of course I am going to publish them. After all I am writing to share my stories with the world (although I suffer the risk of my stories never reaching the entire world since I live in the small country of Sweden). However, my point is that one day I will definitely publish my books. And yes, the series about Erin are not the only one I’m currently working on. There’s also the series about Farrow and her friends/enemies, as well as the story about Soul and the rest of that gang. And many many other stories/series. I probably have over thirty books that I am working on, and the ideas for new books just keep going. I seriously think I can writing until the day I die.

Oh, listen to me go on and on. I am going to stop mumbling nonsense now and go actually write on my book.

Have a great day!

1 year, 6 months and 26 days!

Hello again!

1 year, 6 months and 26 days has passed since my last real post. If you count the most recent one (the one where I am saying that I have decided to create a new blog on Tumblr) then it has only been 1 year, 6 months and 14 days since my last post. Or 561 days if you want. Since so much time has passed I thought I might as well introduce myself again (I have changed somewhat, if you can believe that – I almost can’t!)

Well, I am still named Melina (obviously). But I’m now 18 years old at the moment but in 2 months and 28 days I will be 19. Which freaks me out quite a bit. I am still as obssessed and as in love with Ironman as I always has been since I saw the movie when it came out to cinema’s in 2008. Since then, which you might have noticed Ironman 2 also came out (and yeah, I love that one as well). And soon The Avengers will be hitting cinemas (my biggest joy this year!). And as you might have already guessed Ironman is in that as well. Ironman has also led me to become a huge fan of Robert Downey Jr. And I am so glad that he is the one to play Ironman. But for the moment I will stop talking about Ironman.

Although I haven’t published any of my books yet (something that I’m occasionally relieved by, and occasionally horrified about). However I am so much closer to getting there than I ever have been. I am currently on the third book about Erin, I am writing them by hand so it takes quite some time to get it done. I also have almost finished writing the first book about Cathi and her friends. I also know what is going to happen to Farrow and her frenemies. As well as I have finished planning the entire series about Soul, Rick, Faye and Reva. I just have to write down everything I have planned before I forget it, something that has proven to be a challenge since I am constantly thinking about things and come up with new ideas for everything. Which is how I came up with the last book about Farrow.

What else to say? Like before (and rather sad since it has been over a year already) I still have absolutely no idea whatsoever what life is about, or what the purpose of life is and so on. I am pretty much in the same confused state of life that I was in over a year ago. Only now I am more keen to get depressed. Because I have to make my decision about my future. And except the fact that I want to write I have no idea what to do. I mean, I love to write, but what if it turns out that I actually suck at it and can’t live on it. Then it would be good to have some other education so that I can at least make a living. But I am determined not to give up (I think) and to keep writing until I get really good at it and the biggest dream I have is to be able to survive on my stories and them alone!

So if you want to, feel pleased to follow this scatterbrained naive author on her road throughout this things that is called and supposed to be life.

Starting up again.

Hello everyone. I’ve been busy with my other blog since I started it. As you can see I have mostly been posting pictures there, but I recently got the feeling that I wanted to start writing in English again. So from today and onwards (until the day I might decide to get rid of all my blogs) I will start writing here again. However it’s already past 2.30 a.m so I will be going to bed soon. Just wanted to tell you that I’m going to start writing here again.

Look forward to it if you want to!

New blog.

I’ve discovered some problems with this blog, on this site, so I created a new one.

Problems..

Right now I tried to add an image by URL but it wouldn’t let me and as stubborn as I am I’m right now trying to figure out how to do it.

So pretty soon (hopefully) I will post some images of pictures I like/find interesting/and so on.

My school is trying to kill me… no, not in the way you think!

summer rhapsody

Right now I’m crazy tired, listening to Ellie Goulding and thinking that I probably should study to that test that I have tomorrow. But then when I think about that I feel even more tired. Maybe everything will just work out and the test will be stupidly easy, or maybe the teacher will be sick. There are countless of opportunities that could happen. But they never will. I’m not that lucky. More so the test will probably be ridiculously hard.

Feels like my school is trying to kill me with homework. Not only do we have a few tests coming up soon, but we have homework every day and everyday we get new ones. Math worries me the most, but whatever, I don’t have a math head so that’ll just work out whatever way it does. Or not.. Psychology is also kind of tricky subject there’s so much to learn and remember. But I’m not gonna worry about that just yet. Okay I decided, I’ll go take a shower and then I will study some for the test, or maybe I’ll just fall asleep from boredom? Whatever happens. I’ll be posting a longer post this weekend seeming how I haven’t gotten the time to do it this week, being sick and almost smothered by homework…

What to say?

Hello, sorry for the short absence here on the blog. I sorta forgot about it, then I got sick, and then I got sick. Oh, and yeah, nothing interesting happened in my life.

In about 2 weeks and 3 days or something like that we’ll be moving. I’m really excited. But I also don’t want to expect to much. Like I always do. I build hopes and expectations for things (small and big) and then I get down when that doesn’t happen. Strange thing is, that happens even when the different thing happening might be better or more fun (or whatever) and I still get slightly disappointed.

What more to say?

I’ve spent the last few days thinking about this idea for a new book and I think I’ve got it now. I just need to get going and start writing, but we’ll see how that goes. I think I should focus more on Erin for now so I can finish it sometime. And I’m not sure if I’ll publish this book or not. Guess it depends on whether I want to or not. And how it turns out, obviously.
