Well hello there, some of you may have shifted across from my old blog (incredible shrinking me) which ive decided to shut down in order to open this one, i made this decision for a number of reasons, but mainly because of the following 2.
1. random people posting random comments on my blogs that weren't exactly 'right' if you ask me ;) and i just couldnt keep on top of deleting them.
2. i havent exactly been on track lately, well - at all. and when i say lately, i mean for a good few months, so my thinking was new blog, new look, new start. :)
Im going to provided a little bit of background to me at this point, so old readers can feel free to skip :)
My name is Mel and im 23 :) and i've been overweight for pretty much as long as i can remember, not technically true, i was severely underweight until i hit four and a half and i guess im still trying to make up for those years of malnourishment ;) It's taken me a long time to accept my personality as who i am, and not be defined by my weight but im doing that now and loving every second. I guess it would be fair to say i lead somewhat of an alternative life style, which means i adore my tattoo's, piercings and rock music in general. Im also a big nerd, and read a lot - No# 1 book worm - thats me :) i will read anything, from horror to sci-fi to historical, and i pretty much always have a book on the go :) so i guess that explains the title of my blog. im a rock and roll nerd; its also based on a song by the ultimate comedy rock god; Mr Tim Minchin - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2De680f8r-c - im a big Minchin nerd too, as well as a comedy nerd and a film nerd. Im going to see John Bishop live in November and then Russel Howard live in feb next year. I saw Mr Minchin last year, as well as Ed Byrne :)
Im not at all religious, i describe myself as agnostic with severe atheistic tendencies ;) i do however try to keep this out of my blog, not so much on facebook so if you add me on there you have been warned. ;) i love music yet i have no talent, i used to play the drums but broke my wrist and never got back into it, im desperate to learn to play piano but no one will teach me as i they all know how limited my talent is and how frustrated i get, and im poor and i cant pay. lol. I like a lot of different types of music, from greenday and acdc to eminem and plan b :) not to mentioned robbie williams ;) I also dabble in writing, short stories and poems mainly.
I work for the ultimate budget retailer, Poundland, as a till monkey :) - and have done since september - i pretty much love everyone i work with, and have a great giggle - good times :)
This past few years has been rather turbulent for me, i did get down to a low of 20 st 1 but ive gained most of that back and im hitting 24 st again now, not good but im getting back on it so all will be good. So heres my background in as short and concise way as possible;
