| TAG TIME TUESDAY | Get to Know Me

Up until yesterday I still wasn’t certain which Tag article I should publish today. I got a notebook with inspiration, but still nothing felt ‘right’ at the moment, you know? Since I stopped with publishing the 1000 questions article on my blog – in which I answered personal questions each week so you’d get to know more of the ME behind Melissasbookworld -, I finally decided on this Tag; Get to know me. Soooo, here we go! Want to know more about Melissa? Read on..

Vital Stats

Name: Melissa
Nicknames: Melis
Birthday: 15/09/1989 – Yep, turning 28 this month – don’t remind me buahaha
Star Sign: Virgo
Occupation: Up until a couple of years ago I was Assistant Supermarket Manager
and now I’m a stay-at-home mom which keeps me plenty occupied haha



Hair Color:  My own color is light brown, but at the moment it has red highlights due to a f*ck up when I tried to color it myself, sigh..
Hair Length:  Currently just above my bottom, so waaaay too long haha. Desperately need a haircut!
Eye Color:  Blue, with some grayish tints
Best Feature: Eyes
Braces: No
Piercings: 2, in each ear. I had a belly button like 12 years ago but my body didn’t accept the metal so now I’m blessed with a beautiful scar, ugh.
Tattoos: Unfortunately not. Love to have one – more, to be honest – but I keep chickening out haha
Right or Left: Right


Real Holiday: Mallorca, Spain
Best Friend:  Steef/Kwante
Award: Ehm.. I got one just for fun at a Judo tournament.
As a thank you for participating kind of thing. I wasn’t good enough for a Real award, haha.
Sport: I loved playing handball when I was younger but really liked playing Volleyball as well and horse back riding
Concert: Westlife @AHOY Rotterdam

Picture taken in June 2006 at my second Westlife concert at HMH, Amsterdam


TV Show(s): Game of Thrones, Arrow, Scorpion, Friends, Everybody loves Raymond, Modern Family
Color: Purple
Song: Could this be Love – the Wanted
Restaurant: La Cubanita – tapas
Shop: the Bookdepository
Books: Don’t want to choose, damn you! But pfft.. okay, at the moment: TOWER OF DAWN, hands down.
Shoes: My adidas sneakers


Feeling: Tired
Single or Taken: Married, so taken haha
Eating: Nothing
Thinking About: all the things I still need to finish today – a mom’s job is never done.
Watching: my computer screen since I’m working on this article, lol
Wearing: Jeans and a loose shirt


Want Children: Me and hubby always wanted two children. At the moment we got 1 boy – 4 years old, named Milan, we miscarried last year but we’d still love to have another child some day. Hope it’s in the cards for us. We’d also love to adopt someday! So if it’s possible, we’d even want three children in the future.
Want To Be Married:  Married on May 7th 2010 so I guess that fills in the blanks haha
Careers In Mind: I don’t see myself as a career chasing girl, but when I was younger I’d always wanted to become a marine biologist and do research with and around killer whales.
Where You Want To Live: I’d secretly like to move to America someday.. Don’t know if it’s in the cards for us, but it’s a big dream of mine. For now, we’re fine with where we are but we really want to move into a bigger house within a couple of years.

Do You Believe In

God: Not neccesarily God no, but I do believe in spiritual beings and that there’s way more than we can ‘see’ with our naked eye
Miracles: Don’t know yet haha.. But I believe in things being destined and that most of the things happening in life aren’t always by chance.
Love At First Sight: lust maybe but not love – I go with Tracy’s answer on this one!
Ghosts: Yep, definitely! They scare the crap out of me so I don’t pay too much attention to anything regarding ghosts haha.
Aliens: I’m a firm believer that we are not alone in this vast universe – Again, I go with Tracy’s answer!
Soul Mates: I love reading about it in books, but I don’t think it works that way in real life; there just being 1 person and one person only for everyone.  So, No, I think there’s more than 1 person out there who’d be a perfect match for you.
Heaven: I definitely think there’s a SOMEWHERE we go after out death, that death definitely isn’t the end of us, our soul. Don’t know if it really works like good vs. bad with heaven vs. hell but I 100% believe in the presence of another dimension waiting for us after our death.
Hell: See answer above.
Kissing On The First Date: If your both feeling it, then yeah why not – Again, I’m going with Tracy’s answer haha
Yourself: Nope..

Now you have some more information about me, don’t know if it’s any good to know any of these things but okay, lol haha.
Have a nice day!


  1. Ah, have you seen Westlife live? So cool, I was a huge fan a couple of years ago. I love the series Scorpion as well, I need to watch it again soon. I really enjoyed reading this tag, it’s so nice to get a little bit more information about your personal life <3

      Thank you for your nice reply <3 Maybe the tag is something you could do on your blog as well? Love to see your answers!

      WESTLIFE was my everything for sooo many years - still love their music really much and I'm really sorry they stopped. It's devastating knowing I won't be able to see them live anymore. I've been to a concert two times and saw their farewell concert in a movie theater nearby. They perform sooo good live, unbelievably good <3

      Yeah, we were really addicted to scorpion and watched nothing else for a while, but now we have to catch up on 7 episodes I guess haha. Have been reading a lot lately in the evenings, so we didn't see much together on the tv.

  2. Je weet dat ik het altijd leuk vind om mede-bloggers beter te leren kennen. Vooral omdat je zo vaak ook een heel deel dingen ontdekt die je met hen deelt. Dezelfde favoriete kleur, allebei geen rust in ons hoofd kunnen krijgen vermits we steeds bezig zijn met wat er nog allemaal moet gebeuren, een zwak voor boeken, … Nu snel eventjes afronden zodat ik sebiet mijn bus niet mis.
