About Me




Don't make me cry!
I said it clearly ;)

well anyway,
Merlyn is a girl who wants to live her life to the fullest, twisted with a lot of questions which she even cant answer it by herself, always want to learn something new, and hard to believe that she is crazy sometimes.Otherwise im a very moody person and very unstable. I'm passionate to study and try to be a positive and kind person. An open minded one.


life is only once, be good, do good,and behave nicely, before karma slaps our face!!if you fail to plan , you plan to fail

cogito ergo sum

pespera ad astra
