YouTube takes forever!

So, my plan was to upload TEA: The Movie last night and sleep through the upload, however we had made a “Mel and Lara Cook” video – so I uploaded that one first.

BUT – that still hasn’t finished! I may have to cancel it and start again – but no fear: I am in the process of uploading TEA: The Movie.

This is what I am seeing right now:

I’ll keep you posted both on here and on Twitter: @melissaholden94
In the meantime, why don’t you head over to my other blog and check out some of the cool stuff I’ve written in the past few months?

TEA: The Movie (UPDATE)

So, if you  didn’t already know: I’m making a short film with Lara called TEA: The Movie. (don’t worry – it’s a joke).

We filmed today, so now all is left is to edit and make it look super-awesome! We even managed to get some extra footage just for you guys!

I also took some production photos:

Let me explain the socks: basically – our kitchen is a mess because it’s the only room in the house that we all use, and therefore: no-one cleans it. Me and Lara are the cleanest people in the house, but it doesn’t make a difference. Every time we clean: they make a mess! It’s a never-ending circle of OCD Disaster.

So, instead of mopping the kitchen for like, every day(!), we have to wear socks in the kitchen… it’s disgusting I know. (I hate living with students).

It won’t be like that next year when I move in with Shelby though: they have a cleaning rota. i’m not going to lie – it’s a pretty cool house, so the motivation to keep it clean is a lot stronger than this house.

Anyway, I’m eating toast right now and getting it all over the keyboard, so I’m going to end this post here.



I don’t have sunburn!

I spent most of today in the garden making notes for my assignment and listening to the Spotify playlist by boyfriend made me (it’s pretty good, not going to lie). I got some pretty cool photos of a ladybird that started stalking me around the garden. (I will upload those when I get home.)

At the moment, I’m watching Shelby, Alice, Greg and Emily play Articulate! and it’s one of the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. Especially considering they think I’m writing my essay instead of blogging.

Speaking of essays – I got 1056 of a 2000 word essay done whilst at Shelby’s today (mostly whilst they cooked dinner – which was soo yummy [Shelby made some type of potato fries/pieces: I will have to get the recipe and then share it with you]).

I should probably go home soon and finish my essay soon so I can write the script for tomorrow for…


Keeping you posted (god, I am so tired),


I’m going to make a movie…

Hey Followers!

Today at lunch, me and Lara were talking about our obsession with tea, when inspiration struck.

We are going to make a short film about tea, and we’re going to call it…


Not going to lie, I am way more excited about this than I should be, and it’s completely derailing my Spring Break plan: to write and do my assignments.

I’m going to direct and star in the movie, Lara is going to film and edit. Hopefully there will be some bloopers or outtakes to share on the blog. It’s going on to YouTube, so that should be interesting.
