|Melissa Valentina Costels|
|Birthday:||21st September, 1987|
|Address:||47 Wirralee Way, Miduna Beach|
Melissa is quite proud of her appearance and she thinks she is quite good looking. Her hair is naturally a bit darker, but she dyes it. She always wears at least basic make up and she wouldn't be seen without any on.
Melissa wears a uniform to work, but she usually wears jeans or shorts instead of the work pants. She can be known to wear quite revealing clothes but mostly she wears a t-shirt and jeans or a blouse and shorts. She loves colours like pink, white and purple, which are considered to be girly, but she doesn't like to wear dresses or skirts at all. She loves shoes, especially high heels, which she owns lots of pairs of.
Melissa can come across as slightly deranged/crazy/weird when you first meet her. It could be said that she is very much a follower and doesn't really have her own personality. Melissa is quite self obsessed and often won't see other people's needs over her own. She is nice enough, just a bit self absorbed.
She would say that she is good at helping people, but it is really not her strength. Despite being a nice person, her empathy skills are really not great. It might be to do with the fact that she's a bit selfish, but she just can't understand other people's feelings. She is mostly an honest person although sometimes she claims to be happier than she actually is. She sometimes lies to get out of trouble because if she is in trouble then she will inevitably feel bad or sad, which she can't take.
The truth is that Melissa is just frightened of feeling something other than happiness; frightened of feeling bad. Growing up, her parents completely sheltered her from anything that could possibly make her think about anything sad. When she became an adult and started living in the real world; it was a huge shock and she is still recovering. The only time she ever cries is when she watched sad movies or reads sad books, because she is actually quite an emotional person; she has just suppressed half her emotions.
Melissa is in no way a perfectionist. She will try the hardest she can, or maybe not even the hardest she can, and be happy with the result because she put work into it. This is one of the reasons she isn't great with helping people.
Melissa was born on the 21st of September, 1987. She was born in Barfield. Her mom is half Swedish and half Spanish. Her dad is American. Ever since she was little, they have spoiled her as much as they could afford, which was limited, but still a fair bit.
She had a very average childhood. She had a small group of friends and she had grades that were above average and she was happy. Her parents gave her almost anything she wanted and needed. She loved all subjects, especially art and sport. She wasn't really big on working hard, but she didn't really have to in primary school.
High School was a bit of a challenge for her; suddenly her friends had other friends and she felt like she was being forgotten. She started to fail lots of subjects and she began to realise her parents being a bit angry with her, and she wasn't used to anyone showing any emotions other than joy around her. She began to sit at the back of class with the people who did dangerous things. She was shocked even more by the things they did so she stopped hanging out with them.
As Melissa isn't the type of person who copes very well with change, she began to find school increasingly difficult as she also couldn't understand her opinions, feelings and views on things. She dropped out in 10th grade and lived by herself for three years. She had time to find herself a bit more and put the dog days behind her. She now pretends they never happened, which is why she is overly positive sometimes.
People think she is a bit simple and really when it comes down to it, she is. That's why she found everything so hard to deal with. Nowadays, she has almost forgotten about that period of her life. In the end, she went back to High School, went to college and majored in sport (which did nothing for her career). She now has a job at Brightside Motel, which she enjoys despite the fact that it hs very low internet rating saying the employees are bad. She likes to think she is one of the better employees.
In that period of time where she was hanging out with the back-of-the-class kids, Melissa dated two boys and one girl. She actually doesn't have any romantic interests in girls, but she was trying to make a bit of a statement. She was also in a relationship with one of her colleagues, but they broke up a while ago because he was actually going out with multiple girls at the time. Things are still very touchy between them and she hasn't forgiven him at all. They always avoid each other in the workplace.
