Good day follows, future fellow followers and all members (including the non-members who by accident came across this)
We welcome you to June and Winter season in Cape Town, South Africa. You should know that I was not planning on writing a blog but then I had this idea, I want to become a writer. Suppose writing blogs is a good way to start hey?
What I meant by writer in the above is an author. Now, for those who ‘knows’ Mell, you’ll probably be like: Mell is studying to be a lawyer, why the sudden change of heart?
Relax, a person can dream or so I believe. Loads of things have been happening the past few weeks. I will try and stick to the relevant but important factors that have swamped Melluan.
Mell turned 21 on 23 May, for those who were wondering. Ruan got her a tablet after she made a 21 wishlist and gave it to him 3 days before the time. A tablet was closely related to one of her wishes. She actually wanted an iPad. Get this, she did not even know what either can do yet she wanted it. Most probably wanting to stay with the “in-crowd”. Actually, Mell needed or rather wanted a better camera in case she ends up wanting to take pictures of stuff.
Ruan also the gentleman that he is, gave Mell what she wanted since last year already. A surprise party! Althought there were less than 10 people there, it was still a surprise since Mell knew nothing about the party which Ruan’s sister threw. Other than that lots of people called and messaged as well as posted on Mell’s Facebook wall to congradulate her on achieving or to be neutral becoming 21. Back in the old days becoming 21 was considered by law as being an adult.
Interesting thing that happened to Mell was that Ruan’s other sister (whom not alot of the family has contact with and who never ever met Mell) called Mell to wish her. A sign of acceptance into the “other family”? Perhaps, we will see what the future holds.
Mell made it to the exams, luckily days before her birthday and it was actually one good exam. Downside to that is that Mell is on vacation for two months. Now what right person in her right mind would say no to that? Only Mell because she gets bored easily. What did she do? She went and fetched her programme materials at uni for her 10 day Missouri course. Briefly, its South African students interacting with USA students with regards to each country’s criminal justice system (should be fun). One exam which needs to be passed. Over 200 pages of reading to be done but Mell loves reading so she can cope.
Spanish and Bulgarian bit Mell in the tongue and currently she is on level 5 of learning Spanish on the app she installed 3 days ago (A fast learner).
Ruan is trying out skinny jeans and got him new shoes. Work is hectic for him, since his project is launching end og July. He will be working every weekend of June and July to make the deadline.
Oh and Melluan residence finally got a washing machine. It is very important to have one because Ruan does not like wearing the same clothes twice unless it is washed. I think it is something he picked up at his workplace with those old designers.
Crap got to go eat, cheerio.
xoxo Melluan xoxo
