After chatting it up with Kelly-Ann about her article writing endeavors, I decided to write an article for Associated Content. I got an email today saying that they reviewed my article and it was supposed to be published on the site today, but the link hasn’t been working. I’m sure that it’ll be up by the morning, and I’ll post the link here for all of my (3) faithful readers to see!

I feel kind of like a kid with a new toy! Instead of thinking about what I will write for my Portuguese literature paper (which is due on Thursday), I keep trying to think of different interesting article topics. Maybe I’ll publish my Portuguese paper and kill two birds with one stone? Haha, fat chance! I’m pretty sure that no one wants to read a paper (in Portuguese) about Os Maias .

Commence brainstorming!

EDIT: 10:31 PM
My article has been posted! Check it out here.

translators are great

Michal: haha CSI is shit, but Kelly-Ann is a nice girl.
Melanie: Kelly-Ann likes to show off.

I seem to have a lot of stories lately that are post-worthy! This is one of them. Haha!

Kelly-Ann and I went out to dinner with a group of friends. When we got home, Kelly-Ann went into her room to get ready for bed. Soon thereafter, I heard an “eekkk!!”

“Melanieeeeeee there’s a giant roach in my bathroom!!”

I’m the roach killer of the apartment, so I ran to her room. She showed me where it was and I prepared myself for battle.

“Can I use this??” I asked her, holding up a make-up compact.


“Can I use this??” I asked her, holding up her contacts case.


“Hm. Can I use this??” I asked her, holding up her contact solution bottle.


Then I squished it. It moved mid-swing, so I only smashed it’s lower half with the bottle. Guts were everywhere and it was ugly.

… but I got it!

car troubles follow me

Okay, so I got my oil changed on Friday on my way home from work. I was pretty low on coolant, as I was the previous time that I got my car serviced. He said that he couldn’t see any leaks, but I have a feeling that there was one anyway… Also, one of my oil valves had been leaking, which I knew, but I was 2 quarts low on oil as well. To top that off, my battery is getting very corroded, so I will have to replace it soon. Super good news right?

Soooo while my car is being serviced, I am borrowing my mom/step-dad’s extra car (a long-bed truck). Although it doesn’t have any A/C, I actually don’t mind driving it. It’s SOOO long! I have to take up 2 parking spaces to park it without blocking any lanes.

On with the story…

fun stories.

Newest top search term? “dream analysis monkeys chasing”


Today, Kelly-Ann, Winn, and I signed the lease to our new apartment for Aug 09-July 10. We had a great time being ADD and distracting the leasing agent. When he asked us about any requests that we might have, we started to get curious.

“What kind of requests?” we asked.

He started to explain the different scenarios that would require special requests, such as wanting to live in a certain building or a certain end of the building etc.

Ideas began churning.

“Oh well, I have a request…. I don’t want to be on the side with the main street” says Winn. He’s the subdued one of the group.

Kelly-Ann and I stayed silent for a short time before she came up with the best request ever.

“Can we live next to hott boys? … that aren’t jerks?” The leasing agent laughs, but his pen remains still. After plenty of persuasion, we talked him into actually writing that on our request form as request number 2.

Did I mention that we picked the hot pink request paper?


oh wow

So, I told you that I sat next to a woman on the plane that works for the top fashion house in Milan, right?




Well, we talked for a while and I finally got the courage to ask her… “What do you think about Project Runway?” She said that she liked the show, and I was like “LEGITIMIZED!”
