  1. some good advice, but a commercial teaching nevertheless. dinosaurs πŸ˜€ hehe. she also loves NASA πŸ˜€ maybe she is a comedian…teaching the unawake to use their common sense, at least that. this "knowledge" should be thought in kindergarden.
    question YOUR world. create your OWN thoughts.

  2. Mel you are a total entertainer. Loved your speech, the content, the delivery, the wisdom in it. It is going to be my personal commitment to put, what you just said to action. Will keep you posted on the progress

  3. @Tedx Why is married working mother of three the first thing about her? Do you introduce your male guests the same way? Mark Zuckerberg – married working dad of 2. Honestly, just imagine. Please take note and edit this.

  4. ''How to stop screwing yourself over.'' the title says.

    Well, for starters i first read a lot of the comments before i watched even a single second of the video.
    The outcome when doing it the other way around isn't full proof but it feels so much better when the video sucks.
    (And it saves you a lot of time.)

    But in this case the jury was out regarding the comments, so i watched.
    Uptil the 8th minute.
    What a waste.

  5. When I was little I was bad I hated my self. I was horrible to my mum and I always was sad or mad or annoying someone. I wanted a new life because all day I would go to my room and cry and cry and cry non stop, I wanted to die. I still kinda feel like this now, I was so mean to my siblings my mum and my eldest sister. I try to be happy but that dosent work so I just paint a smile on my face and go to class. This is what I want, I want to be happy and not be mean to other but I cant because theres this little voice telling me to do it that might sound crazy but its true soo Ims till tryna find how to stop that voice .-. …………..

  6. I wanted to live near mountains, so I moved.I wanted to live at the beach, so I moved. I wanted to have a professional life, so I got one.I wanted to completely change my professional path, so I am.I want to swim with sharks in the Bahamas, so-someday-I will. shark smile
