About Me

My name is Melina Moussetis (hence MelinaMou) and I created a site as a third evolution of blogs I’ve done in the past. With those past two sites, I slowly realized that the articles I was writing had a larger purpose behind them. I wanted to show people how easy it is to take control of their own lives, whether it’s with their health, sex, or travel. I want others to feel like they’ve got their shit together and that they can be confident about themselves and their lives. It’s that simple.

So I put together this blog as an amalgamation of categories that is aimed at providing advice and inspiration for achieving that “having my shit together” feeling, and overcoming any obstacles in the way. Everybody has bad periods, but it is important to recognize setbacks and not let things get out of hand. You can feel confident no matter what is going on in your life.

Just so you know who you’re taking advice from, here’s a bit about me. I am 22 years old, I graduated a year early from Pepperdine University in Malibu with an Economics degree and I currently work in Los Angeles as a software consultant. Bet you didn’t see that job description coming! I speak Spanish, Greek, and a passable amount of Mandarin. I am dreadfully impatient and am super annoying about being organized, and also about eating (HANGRY is a popular word with me). Traveling is my absolute favorite thing to do, but I also love science fiction and fantasy novels, as well as all film. Favorite music is probably film scores, but currently, I’ve been alternating listening to Hamilton (for the millionth time) and the LaLa Land soundtrack.

I don’t sugarcoat and I have very strong opinions, but I also pride myself on being open minded and being able to admit when I’m wrong. So if you disagree with me or want to offer a different viewpoint, just let me know. There is no room for arrogance here.
