And many more...


Today I woke up because I was feeling really disquiet for 2 reasons:

  1. Electrician had this awesome automatic electric switch installed to our corridor yesterday and he said it would start working tomorrow (so TODAY) and I was really excited to see if it worked.
  2. It's 04.08, which means...It's my BIRTHDAY!
Yep, I'm turning 15 at 18:05 and that's awesome!
And I decided to write a bit about my younger years...

My name is Merily, I got it after a yacht. I was born in Saku, Estonia. My hair was dark(1) and eyes were gray.

Everybody thought I was going to be daddy's girl. I was.
I didn't have any brothers-sisters, I had a cousin and uncle who were about same age as me.

I was really social, I was in the center of attention at every extended family convention. I always performed with a poem I had written or sang or danced...or put up and exhibition of my paintings(2). I was really into arts...

(3) My hand when i was 3 months old. Mu mom tried to convince me that I was not warped and it's looking really weird because I was moving. Sure...moving you say...

Right after I went to kindergarten I met Britt. We became best friends because we were really alike and we had so much in common. We both were real drama queens at the age of 3! :D (and we both HATED circuses, and still do!)

I just wasn't feeling that connection with the world's youngest clown...

Like everyone, I LOVED Spice Girls. My favorite was Emma (of course...) and when it was bed time in kindergarten I used to hide a book about her under my pillow so I could read it under my blanket when everyone was asleep.
I remember so clearly that at that time the most popular songs in Estonia were Celine Dion's "My heart will go on" and Eiffel 65's "Blue". I have no idea why I still remember that.

Besides Spice Girls I had many more things I loved. I loved traveling. My favorite place to go was Saaremaa.

I also loved getting presents, and I was SO happy when I got my first Tamagothci!

I remember when I went to my friends' place one day and FORGOT my tamagotchi home. I called my dad, cried on the phone and after long time of begging he went home from work and brought me my little electronical dinosaur.
It had died... I was really wounded and I didn't relaunch it for a week, so my dinosaur's soul could rest in peace.

The next thing I started loving was the Old Town of Tallinn. I still love it. I think it's the most magical, orphic and peaceful place in the whole world.

I have always been a bit finicky. Everything has to be exactly how it is supposed to be. I didn't like cleaning my room though...

I also didn't like snow...

Somehow me and Britt were always matching. Not on purpose. I guess we just have the same mindfrequency.

Plethoric Disney theme with candy necklace accents...

Summery yellow matched with...matching red skirts.

Nothice the album britt is holdin /\. It's her stickre album. We were HUGE collectors. I can remember a case when we had fire drill in our school. And we were supposed to gather in front of our school, but I forgot my sticker album in my drawer. I ran to the second floor ignoring teachers' orders and brought my album with me. My class mates still remind me that in cases.

My first big trip was to Tenerife. I don't remember much about it, but I do remember that we somehow won it, but still had to pay for everything...
My second trip is much clearer. It was to Egypt. I LOVED being there. I always knew I belong to somewhere where it's always sunny and warm, somewhere with warm people too.

When I was younger I took part in every competition arranged. I have the weirdest diplomas in a pile next to me.
  • "Diploma for the best embroideress in our class"
  • "Diploma for the title of honor Dwarves Helper"
  • "Beaver-Mikk's shiny smile Certificate"

When I was about 10, me and my friends started a tea-club called "Padjaklubi". I can't believe how much drama it contained :D
disbanded and reunited like million times, until we disbanded eternally. It was a good thing, that superficial behaviour would have killed our souls anyway.

So these were my younger years. Not very informative, but I hope you enjoyed reading it, if you did.
Here Melly leaves and says "How YOU doin'?" ;)
