You Are Spring Cleaning

You are an organized and efficient person. You don't like messes or chaos.

You like simple, high quality things. You don't have room for clutter in your life.

You believe that everyone deserves a clean slate from time to time... including you.

You tend to see a lot of opportunities in life, and you take advantage of them.

...O_O... I think not. I can't clean... I'm still on the Granny flat mission and it's autumn. Though I only have one room left out of five... ^^;

That and I love chaos. I live in a mess and really don't care. Hmmm...

Association Meme: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.
This one was from [personal profile] whiteadelphi
1) Sai! (I'm going to presume that we are talking about the weapon =D)

In structure the sai is rather simple. It has one long prong in the centre that extends from the handle. From this main prong are two smaller ones on either side of it. These smaller prongs are called yoku and generally tend to curve outwards, though it is not unheard of for them to be straight much like the centre prong. Then at the base of the handle is a ball. This is the knuckle of a sai. 

The sai is traditionally an Okinawan weapon where it was used mainly in defence rather than offence. However the weapon has both defensive and offensive possibilities. Normally they will be perceived as a defensive weapon due to the fact the prongs are not sharpened to a point. Though if someone were to jab one of them into your torso with everything they had... I would have to say they can definitely be offensive when the need is there.

The sai is normally a dual weapon and will come in a pair. However it is not uncommon for someone to just have one or three. The third being a spare or used for throwing. In a fight the main feature of a sai is the fact that it can trap out weapons in it's prongs. This however requires a great deal of skill but is worth it due to advantage it can create. The fact that the sai is a small weapon designed for close combat is a disadvantage against a sword, bo or any other long range weapon. But with the trapping skill this is easily turned round to become an advantage.

My interest in this weapon began when I was a little girl. Watching TMNT (of course). At this point I adopted Raphael as my favourite character and when you adopt a character... you tend to adopt his weapon too. XD Though my love for the weapon faded slightly... it was reignited by Elektra! It is my goal to learn to us the sai in real life... instead of just in rps. ^^;

I currently attend a dojo where as soon as I reach my green belt I am required to pick a weapon and study it. The weapon is not assigned to me. I get to pick!!! I may only be a white belt for now but I have spoken to my Shihan about his and he is more then happy to help find me a master when the time comes. He urges me to buy a pair and get used to them now so when I get my green belt, I'll be ready!

I do have a pair but they are not real ones. They are ones my boyfriend made for me. I love them, I really do. And I always will. But unfortunately they aren't dojo safe ones... ;_; So they stay at my place, in their own special draw. When I get my own place I plan to put them up on display. But til then my parents can't see them or they will kill him. I really do like him alive.


2) Saldechin on King William

Saldechin is a tea shop that is situated in Adelaide on King William Street. The style of the shop is based on 1920’s Shanghai tearoom. The door into the shop was an odd one. An iron gate stands at the height of probably three men and when opened it sinks into the ground. Allowing people to walk over it and enter the shop until it is time for it to be raised once more to lock the customers out. This particular feature shocked me. I’d never seen it before.

I’m going to be completely honest with you. I had forgotten that this was the name of the tea shop where whiteadelphi and I first met in real life. XD

But this is where we met. It was originally just going to be disxox and whiteadelphi meeting but I tagged along.

The funny thing about this shop... is you have to go down many stairs just to get to the bathroom. I believe it was called by my friends as ‘The Great Spiritual Journey’ or something like that anyway. By the time you come back, you’ll find yourself at one with everything.

I just have one thing to say to whiteadelphi.... Care to meet me there again sometime? =D *Really wants to see her again*

3) Meme-holic... XD

There is a circle of a dozen purple chairs in a room. But only one of the chairs is occupied. The room is eerily silent. Normally it would be a full room where the only silence that would fill the room would be on of awkwardness, as people wait for someone to speak first.

The lone person in the room sighs heavily as she looked to the doors, willing someone to come through them. Her sigh fills the room but the eeriness remains. The girl looks at the clock on the wall and frowns. There had been no ticking, the clock had stopped. Frustrated the girl begins rummaging around her bag, only stopping when she finds her mobile phone. She looks at the time. It’s 6pm... they were meant to be here at 5pm.

Another sigh escapes her, a sad sigh. She drops the mobile back into her bag. Moments pass by as she sat there in silence. No one was coming... Slowly she seemed to accept this fact. With another heavy sigh she got out of the chair, picking up her bag. Once more she glanced at the frozen clock, once more reminded that it would not show her the time.

The girl slowly walked to the door, only turning when she was out of the door. She glanced at the empty room as she pulled the door to a close. There was a sign right near the door. In her anger at the situation the girl glared at the sign before giving it a swift kick. The sign was knocked over and she stormed off.

On the sign that had received the kick was a small note. “MEME-HOLICS ANONYMOUS”

... XD

Sorry. Couldn’t help myself. I think I should add RP-holic to the list of things I’m addicted to too. But anyway... back on topic.

Hi everyone. My name is Shell Mel and I am a meme-holic. You’ll find that 70%-90% of my posts are memes or quizzes. You can chose to ignore this, comment on this or follow in my footsteps and post them too. I’m not all fussed. I rarely tag people though. Very rare that I will. If I do it’s normally due to the fact I really what that person’s view on things. But if they don’t feel like going through it with it, then that’s fine too. As I said, not fussed.

If you are annoyed that I mostly post memes and quizzes please go to the meme-holics anonymous room and I’m sure someone will be with you shortly. Xb

Also a little note as to my little section above. Sorry I was in a creative mood and as soon as I saw the word ‘meme-holic’ the image of an AA meeting sprung to mind. Also I’m trying to get back into the habit of writing. My fingers that I’ll find the attention span required to actually do it... Had several stillings just to write this meme up to here. XD

4) Fanfiction

Fanfiction? Well... I read it, write it, love it!

I have written two fictions, both TMNT. On I am ‘The Waiting Ninja’... lame I know. But I couldn’t help myself as I couldn’t have Shell Mel. One is a drabble (Mikey and Leo) and the other only has the prologue up (Raph-centric). I know... I is terrible. ;_; Though I have more ideas. Two more. One is Donnie-centric and the other has an OC. Never really liked OC’s in fanfiction but I’m going to give it a go. See what happens.

Though I will fix this. I’m getting back in contact with my beta reader and I will try and write more!

But on the reading front... I read mainly TMNT and some Teen Titans. I tend to favour Raph-centric torture fics... or just Raph-centric fics full stop. XD So if anyone knows any good fics that I might be interested in, please don’t hesitate to recommend!

5) Socialising

The definition of socialising is: the act of meeting for social purposes ( socialising)

Most of my socialising is done either through work or school. I have never been real big on socialising. This has nothing to do with the people I’m friends with or anything like that. I’m not the sort of person that has a hard time making friends, in fact I’m the opposite of that. I make them way too easily. While I am at school or work, socialising is no issue for me.

But! And there is always a but...

 When it comes to going to parties, meeting people outside of these safety zones or anything like that... I’m different. I get really nervous (like everyone does), but I get to the point where I’ll be looking for ways to back out of it. Though I rarely do back out... I go. I have fun and feel better. However the first part of the party/meeting/ whatever... I feel socially awkward. I don’t feel happy there, I’ll be looking for exits; I will be anything but the life of the party. It often takes me a while to get into the swing of things but by the end of it I am enjoying myself.

I will never be a social flower. I make friends and lose them far too easily. But that doesn’t mean I ever stop caring about them. Hence why I love the internet. Makes keeping in contact easier for me.

Now I have 2 more to do. So be on the lookout for them!
shell_mel: (Laughing)

This is testimony to the fact my dreams are weird and that I have a sick fascination with death. Not to the point where I want to make it happen. Whether that be myself of someone else. Anyway this dream was a couple of nights ago. Here we go:


I was someone’s assistant but at the same time I felt she was my friend (from real life). But her face was always faded in my dream so I don't remember who it was. She acted like Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) out of ‘The devil wears Prada’. I had to do all her jobs, chores, drive her around, wait on her hand and foot while she partied and did business.

At one point we were on a cruise. I was on a small lower class tug boat while she was on the big expensive ship. I was with the other assistances. The ships were pretty far apart. One of the assistances tried to swim to the other boat but she disappeared. The water was freezing so she was probably dead. But no one cared or they were too scared to leave the boat without permission.

 Somehow I managed to get on the other ship. The bosses were all in a hot tub, drink as. We had to go or she would be late for a meeting. Since the other assistant died we had to take the assistant-less boss with us. He was male. We went to a red sports car and I got in the front to drive, while they went in the back. I drove them down a very curvy road. In the end I missed the turning and had to go back.

The new road was curvy too but a dirt road. I went round one turning which was similar to a rollercoaster where people are parallel to the ground. On this turning I hit the curve and crashed the car. My boss was not impressed. The other boss disappear, got no idea where he went. A police officer was suddenly there. Saying it wasn't too bad and I'd just get a warning.

Then my dream changed. But the setting was the same. I was still at the accident. But I wasn't an assistant. People, dark figures or shadows, were coming after me. I ran. An alleyway appeared out of nowhere. I ran down it and turned the corner. There were a lot of wooden crates everywhere. Suddenly there was a BANG! And I fell to the ground, some crates falling on top of me. I had been shot. But I was still alive.

Words ran through my head as the figures surrounded me. I think that was there way of talking. The words: Poison, radiation, gun point, strangling, stabbing... I think they were discussing how to finish the job.

Suddenly the dream changed again. The scene was the same though it was obvious there had been a change in time. This was later... but how much later I’m not sure. I was someone else. A black guy here to investigate a murder (my murder I think).

One of the guys on the team was drilling in the pavement. A girl's body (my body) had been chucked the in cement. I (the black guy) had to go into the hole and bag/tag the evidence. I found my lip balm, phone, mirror, a bullet, and some other stuff. Most of it being stuff I use in real life. I was trying to work out what happened to the girl. Suddenly I had an idea. The nerve endings would tell me! (As crazy as that is XD) They were stuck to the cement on the wall of hole. But it more like glitter pens or something. I was trying to read them while I had a feeling the shadows were returning. I looked up at something and suddenly...

I woke up. A cat fight at 6am woke me up... not pleased.

How weird was that? Meaning? I focus too much on death and will result in my own? *shrugs* It got really confusing near the end. I knew I should be me... but I was the black guy.

BTW this amount of detail is normal for my dreams, as is the length. There was actually a whole lot more detail than I can be bother going into. But I’m going to bed. Good night everyone!

shell_mel: (Sign...)
Okay... I'm a little hurt right now.

I have so much love and respect for my father. I have posted a few times about him, so if anyone read those posts they would know I love him.

I'll start from the beginning rather than giving you my ramblings... those will come later.

This morning I asked dad if I could sleep over [ profile] cloudy's. He said it shouldn't be a problem but we'll discuss it tonight. We like to discuss things as a family and I love having my parents thoughts on what I'm doing in my life. So I don't mind... that and pushing for an answer would just mean I wouldn't be able to go.

Now before I panic [ profile] cloudy or [ profile] disxox I am still coming. So don't worry.

So I went about my day... went to Uni. I will actually let everyone know what's happening with that soon. It's so exciting!

Now after dinner I asked again. Can I go? My dad told me to discuss it with mum. I went to mum. She asked why I had to discuss it with her, shouldn't I be talking to dad? I told her what he told me to do. She goes through and asks him what this is about.

After a mini argument due to prior arguments they had had that day my father looked me in the eye and said. "No."

Let me give you the rough conversation.

Dad: No.
Me: Why?
Dad: Where are you going?
Me: To cloudy's.
Dad: And from there?
Me: No where.
Dad: Do you really want to go?
Me: I haven't seen them since before Christmas. If I didn't want to go, I wouldn't be asking.
Dad: Then I'll drop you off. Is that okay?
Me: *Suddenly realizes what dad is implying that we will do* I'm okay with that. But you do know that I'm not comfortable with going out and drinking.

Okay take a small break to notify all friends. I don't mind drinking. In fact I love having a beer. But I am really not comfortable with the idea of going out and drinking. I just barely comfortable with drinking outside my house. Now you know... back to the conversation.

Dad: ...
Me: I'm barely comfortable with drinking outside this house. I don't want to go make an ass of myself if I get drunk. Being drunk in the public eye is something I'm not okay with. I prefer my wits about me when I'm outside this house. So I can tell you know if I went to a friends and they suddenly told me we were going drinking I would have to say no. I have no issue with that. And if they are my friends they will see that I'm not comfortable with that.
Dad: ...
Me: Where did this suddenly come from? You know I'm not a normal teenager. I don't sneak out. I don't go to concerts. I don't binge drink. I ask my parents for permission to go out still! I. Am. 18!
Dad: ...
Me: And just so you know. I've been 18 for nine months. I've had nine months of opportunities to go down to the Bottle-O and get alcohol for my friends. Don't you think I would have done it by now?
Dad: ...
Me: Don't you trust me?
Dad: ...
Me: Can I go?
Dad: ... Yeah.
Me: Thank you.

I have no idea where this has suddenly come from. But it hurt that he doesn't trust me. When I did nothing to deserve that. Mum doesn't understand it either... Well she actually said it's because he's "fucked up in the head". But I know my dad isn't all there sometimes but... normally I can brush off the insults he throws at me. Normally calling me useless, idiotic, a space case and many other things to indicate I'm a loser. Most of the time I let it roll over me and I move on... but every now and again... it sticks.

I thought my father knew me... I guess I was wrong... ;_;

I've been really happy lately. To the point of practically bouncing off the walls. My parents have noticed a change in me. My mum is very happy for me. Glad that I feel this good... but I think dad's jealous. He finds it do hard to look up. I try to help but... well how can his silly, daft daughter help?

Maybe I was better off being gloomy all the time... The laws of physics. Everything that goes up, must come down. At least with me being down I don't have as far to fall.

I'm sorry. Having an emo moment. I'll go bother someone else now.

*Goes and hids in her fantasy world.*

Your Birthdate Predicts You're Fearless

Ever since you were born, you've always been able to assert yourself.

You are confident in carving your own path. Soon enough, other people will be persuaded and follow along.

You are driven and competitive to the point of being impulsive. You'll do just about anything to win.

It drives you crazy when you have to stay still in life. You are too dynamic to stay stagnant.

Hmm... That's really only half of me. Fearless is not exactly the best way to describe me.
