About Me

Hi! My name is Mellifera, but you can just call me Melli :) My favourite color is purple, I like hydrangeas and I like bees

I'm currently studying a double degree of Law/Sociology and I wish to become a copyright lawyer in future (4 years to go!). I love Jujutsu Kaisen, the Yakuza/Judgement series (specifically the Lost Judgment DLC, Kenmochi Shusuke my beloved), Disco Elysium and Formula 1 (GO FERRARI AND ASTON MARTIN!!)

I write occasionally, make books and have dabbled in just about every hobby known to man. I'm brand new at this, so please have so patience, but I'd love to become part of this community!

I often struggle with my memory, and are often incredibly busy and way from home, so if it takes me a while to complete reviews/respond to letters I apologize. As such, all my sent items will include either a 'THOUGHT FROM ME TO YOU' where I attempt to put all my current thoughts to paper, or a 'POEM FROM ME TO YOU' where I share a poem that has particularly stuck with me lately. These are never going to be frightful, or rude, or judgemental, and if they do come off that way I apologize - these are my genuine attempts to bare a part of me to you, through the written word. I ask you respect that, and instead of providing criticism, attempt to join me in a discussion of them.

Favorite Music

My favourite artists include Mitski (I can't tell you how many times I've listened to My Love Mine All Mine and cried), K/DA, Tyler the Creator, phonk music, anime openings (~The words that curse you are stuck in the back of my throat~) and more recently the band ATARASHII GAKKO!

Favorite Books

Right now I am reading Iron Widow by Xiran Zhao, but I do also love Jane Harper (The Aaron Falk trilogy is fantastic give it a read if you can). I also really love fanfiction! I very rarely cry when I read, but oh boy there are some fics out there that have left me emotionally devastated for DAYS.

Favorite Movies

  1. Princess Mononoke
  2. Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse
  3. Pacific Rim (SPECIFICALLY the first one by Guillermo Del Toro)

Some movies I've been meaning to watch include: Everything Everywhere All At Once, Nope, A Portrait of a Lady on Fire, The Menu, Interstellar, and Akira

Favorite Television

Definitely Jujutsu Kaisen, though I have been watching the Apothecary Diaries recently and Dungeon Meshi. I don't particularly have a 'favourite' TV show but if I did I would say Over the Garden Wall and Succession. I also really liked Blue Eye Samurai!

Favorite Crafts

Just about everything under the sun EXCEPT my nemesis crocheting >:( I do also really like bookbinding, which is my passion and you can see above on my website/tumblr page

Dislikes

I dislike JK Rowling, hypocrites, Taylor Swift, people who think suffering builds character, the sound and texture of ceramic, the police, AI, people whos ideologies are not rooted in compassion and kindness and the state of Israel.

Links for Palestine

From the river to the sea, always was, always will be! Please, if you can I highly encourage you to educate yourselves on the ongoing Palestinian genocide, and donate if you can to support the Palestinian people!

  1. arab.org - clicks generate funds that go to gaza
  2. gazaesims.com - purchase e-sim cards for gazans without internet
  3. gofundme.com/f/careforgaza - sends funds to displaced families in gaza
  4. piousprojects.org/campaign/2712 - provides hygiene kits for women/girls in gaza

Comment: Wow, what an original and wonderful-sounding recipe! My husband loves butter chicken, so I´m going to get him to make this. And the extras you included, oh my! Thank you for the Aussie coins and panda charm and wonderful seeds that will definitely get sown in about a month, when the chance of frost has passed in this area. You really knocked it out of the park with this envie, and I appreciate it greatly! (Oh, and welcome to Swap-bot! May you time here be as varied and gratifying as mine has.)

Comment: Thank you for your answers. I will admit I had to look up Charles Leclerc. He's kind of good looking. Young enough to be my kid, so I have to stick with "kind of." I would love to be able to grow my finger nails too. If I get one that's even a bit long, it will break off in a week's time.
