Hi....My Name Is...

So I've been blogging for a while now, and who knows if anyone even reads this schnizz any more, BUT it occurred to me the other day (which is generally the day all my good ideas come to me)
....Do you know who I think I am?

Name: Jennifer Francis

I also respond to the following: Jennie, Jen, Gwen, Genvieve (John-vie-ev), Penelope, Franie, Thug, Yo Bitch.

Age: 19
Love being 19, it's an awesome age that comes with no attachments and i fell like it fits me well, also can't wait to be 20 just to have that whole "Teen" thing dropped once and forever more. Also I'm the youngest in my ground of friends which is a new experience.

Height: 5ft4 (and a half)
That extra half an inch is very important *Cough* That's what she said *End Cough* I like my height, it's cool and very definitive I think.

Education: University in Sheffield
Doing the whole Film and Media Production thing, was hating on it at first but meh, what's life without a little annoyance, difficulty and disappointment? Though to be honest I'm kind of understanding the relevance of some of the stuff they teach, and got told by a guy it gets better in the next two years. First year is just to get rid of the weak. One thing I am not is weak.

Bio: Where you from and let it spread from there.
Okay so I originally lived in East London, and I still claim it, I'd claim anywhere faster than I would Chadwell Heath, which is sadly in Essex which is where i now reside. I actually can't stand it there, like actually, unexplainably so, but I smile and I go into town and so on because I know there is no escape. Maybe one day I will put into words why I resent the place so much but today isn't that day.

Random Point
The almost reckless need to keep changing, the thought of staying the same way or in the same place for the rest of your life is too painful to think about.

Family Members: 6 (Including Myself)
Mother: Who gives me too much jokes and doesn't even realise it.
Father: *Cough*.
Older Sister (21): In Ukraine studying for one reason or another, I dunno I just go along with it.
Younger sister (15): Little smarty pants. Sweet kid, likes the same stuff I do.
Brother (11?) He's trouble and his life makes me confused. Mostly cause I can never remember what year he's in or who his friends are or what he talks about.

Loves: General
Ooooh, I don't quite know, I suppose junk food. No all food. I love food. Also Reading and watching movies :)

Hates: General
Erm, touchy feely people and the colour orange.

Movies: General 
Plot wise then I'd say Non Linear and 6degree of separation styled movies.

Television: What do you watch
We haven't got enough time in the day to go through them all.

Music: Genre
Mainly Alternative, Pop Rock, Rock Rock, RnB, General Pop, the odd Country and Classical.

Thoughts or Philosophies: Quotes etc
Live Free or Die Hard - Die Hard.

TV taught me how to feel now real life has no appeal -Marina and the Diamonds.

I'll probably be this way till my dying day -Eminem.

It's a beautiful lie, It's the perfect denial -30 seconds to Mars.

Sluts and what nots

I don't know what it is about me, but people tend to think that I'm some kind of whore :/

In a way, I thought to myself during my claritive walk home tonight in the dead silence of a Monday night out, it's kind of a compliment as then doesn't that mean that people think I'm pretty enough to have a list of guys at my beck and call. Cause I know I ain't fat or ugly....or easy for that matter so what else could it be but my dashing good looks and my winning personality?
I don't dress like one on the regs either, maybe on the odd night out but that hardly often, and it's definitely not the company i keep.... any more. So I really don't get it.
It's mostly guys though, but I guess girls don't really go around calling each other their faces.

I don't know, this thought just came to mind as i was thinking about a text someone sent me today.
Thoughts at all?

Crazy Eyes

My friend keeps making jokes about how one of my eyes is super lazy compared to the other and I was all whatever, and he's literally been saying this for ages but I ignore the lovely bastard, but then today I was starring at my face in the webcam....Cause I don't have a mirror in my room and I couldn't be bothered to leave my bed and go to the bathroom  to do my hair - and I noticed it. Now I can't stop noticing it. Look.

I mean I might as well look like this!

Sigh. Oh well, hopefully I should be over it by tomorrow cause that's how I roll. But its still a little freaky cause now I feel like my lef- right eye has a little weight at the end of it. Now that's annoying.

Before and After

I know it looks the same.....But its not.

Also in the second on I decided to switch my camera set up so its basically a mirror image.
I've also been playing around with the idea of getting bangs, but my flatmates hate the idea and I've decided that my cheeks are too round for it to match my face. But I still think I want it eventually so I was playing around on Tazz last week and I know it looks totally weird but at the same time, what do you think. Just imagine it better, obviously.

Can't remember what celebrities i copied the hair from, but yeah, except for the fact that I look a little weird in the pictures cause they literally superimpose your face into where the celebrities would be....
Watcha think, Oui or Non on the Bangs?

Hair dressers

Is a place I really hate going, I'm the kind of person that cant sit still for long periods of time and my mother used to hate doing my hair when I was younger and even now if I need her to help me take something out or attach something back to it I would fidget and she'd hit my head with the comb, Good Times :')

So anyways I need to get my hair redone every 6 to 8 weeks, and in Sheffield its hard to find a place that does Afro/Caribbean hair like there's just literally just this one place and its not even a while salon dedicated to it, its just this one lady who rents the space with a bunch of others.
I've been to her once before and it was meh. She tried to over charge me but I usually know what I'm talking about so she dropped the price. So this time round i was going to have some chick I met do it for me but she never text me back so I rang through and she told me to come over at about 2:30pm.
I am currently super busy with a shit load of work to do for the 3weeks so in my head I had planned out what time to pause my work, get ready and leave, how long it would take and what time I would be back. I got there at 2:30pm and she was with someone else so I sat down and waited, it was okay cause I factored in like 10mins in case she was with someone else. 20 mins later I asked her how long she would be and she said 20mins. I was all "Fo Reals?" she said yeah and I was like, Gosh sigh I'm going to have to change some plans now. You know, tryna guilt trip her and make her hurry up. It was also fortunate that I had brought my work with me so I plugged myself in and did some reading and note taking, the next thing I know it was quarter past 3. I decided to myself that I would wait till it was 3:30 then get up and leave and express my unhappiness and I even came up with a kicking exit like "Next time I would appreciate that if you give me a time you stick to it. Actually no it doesn't matter there wont be a next time." Good right? so yeah I get up at 3:29pm and go and start my speech *"I'm leaving now, you cant tell someone 2:30 and expect them to be waiting an hour-" she cut me off and started apologising and telling me not to be angry at my sister. I was like "This is the second time I've met you, this is unprofessional-"again she cut me off and started to hug me, and I pushed her hands away and she kept apologising and the person she was with started to say that it was her fault and offered to move over and let her do my hair instead. At this point there was 5seconds of silence, the only sound coming from the radio in the other room.. Cant remember what it was playing, but then I nodded real slow, and she hugged me and I allowed her to do so before taking my seat. An hour later I was done and she was apologising again and saying that she would have been thinking about me all day if I had walked out and that I would be thinking that she's a bad person. I let that last part hang in the air as I just looked at her, then reached for my bag and coat, paid her and walked out with no comment of whether or not I would be back.

*I should most likely add that I have one weakness that people take the wrong way of they don't know me. I cry when I'm angry, like when I'm boiling on the inside with rage. You may think that I'm angry when I'm having a go at people or in the middle of an over the top screaming match, but that's all physical, like I'm going through the motions, on the inside I'm never actually as angry as I'm making out to be. But when the tears start streaming, that's when you know. It's really annoying because I don't even notice it until half way through my voice will crack or something and I'll tough my cheeks and I'm like, Damn It Not Again. So yeah.

I feel all queasy on the inside

Damn you lactose Intolerance.
I inherited it from my father
Usually its okay cause I never have cereal
So no need for milk
and  hardly have a large consumption of cheese in one day.

But today I went over board.
Had cereal this morning (Lucky Charms obvs)
A nice chuck of cheese cake
Scoop of ice cream
Went pizza hut and asked for extra cheese.


By the time I got home that was it. Couldn't stay and watch Misfit cause I thought I was going to be sick, spent 20mins on the bathroom floor, before I opted to lie on my stomach in bed.
That helps, the only downside is that as soon as I get up I feel like shit all over again.

My flatmates were really nice, came and asked if I was okay, considering I disappeared before the first break.
Obvs they're nice people. I say flatmates but they're also my friends, considering I chose to live with them this year in our swanky apartment. We have this little joke where we get angry if we refer to each other as flatmates and not friends.

Gonna watch last nights Merlin to cheer myself up.

If heartache was a physical pain I could face it

I just seem to really love this song, stumbled upon it as i was on my way to listen to Lose Yourself by Eminem.

Bradley Cooper was trending

So obvs I had to know why. And what do you know, he has been voted People Magazines 2011 Sexiest Man.

 So I went and did a little wikipedia background search and came up with this.

John F Kennedy Made me Chuckle
Props to George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp who have won it twice.

Ode to crappy TV

Back when Channel 5 used to show quality shit TV

Also do you remember.
Harry and Cosh
The Tribe
Heartbreak High
*Sigh* What ever happened to honest to God shit TV, none of that obvious stuff like Gossip Girl and Leverage, but the ones that you watch for ages and you know its sad but you love it anyways and everyone watched it on the sly.

One For The Money

Okay so we all should know by now how much i love the series. Actually that's an understatement, The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich is one of my top 3 favourite book series and I have been anticipating the movie release for give or take three years.
I have watched and waited as it was in talks, as they played around with release dates, pushed said dates forward and back, put it on ice for a while and when they considered Sandra Bullock for the role of protagonist Stephanie.
But that's all in the past. When I heard they we're using Heigl instead, at first I was pissed because I didn't see it, then I was furious because I take the world of television very seriously, and after watching her in Greys Anatomy I  hated her character and thus i started to form a disdain for the actual person. Sad I know but I cant help it (I'm still pissed at Orlando Bloom for his role in Troy, but I'm slowly defrosting) So yeah I was angry cause if I didn't like her then I wouldn't like the movie.......I've really lost focus and track about what I'm talking about so I'm just going to jump and say that as I watched the trailer I didn't like who they picked to play any of the characters, except for Lula, her I can deal with. BUT as I went on, I did have a huge grin plastered on my face so all hope isn't lost. I think it was helped by the fact that they used a lot if elements from the book and that always pleases me. Any who the movie's not out until January in the US and summer in the UK which sucks. But nothing is set in stone.

She just looks wrong *Sigh*

Combining my two favourite things

And it was really well edited i think, cutting to the beat and what not and some shots are ones that i thought about then they used.

Cold Shoulder

Only heard this song sometime this week cause I just happened to see it as i was flicking through the music channels. Its such a tune. Jokes at Tulisa dancing, its about time considering it looks like most of the songs and videos are the guys ideas.

Sad Times

Google Earthing Things and it kinda upsets me that the black of flats i lives in is just completely different. There's literally no similarity. They knocked that bitch down and built it all over again.
I had such an awesome time there. Its a shame there are no pictures. I know it got replaced like more or less 5 years ago but it's still sad. Can't show my brother or just look at it in nostalgic bliss.

Plaistow is currently undergoing extensive urban re-generation including replacement of council homes. Newham, of which Plaistow is part, is one of themost deprived boroughs in the UK, and with an ethnically diverse population; it is hoped the staging of the Olympic Games at nearby Stratford in 2012 will bring greater prosperity to the area. - Wikpedia

There's no more 99 either. Its just 90-93. Like the place didn't even exist.

I wasn't kidding when I said I lived across the road from my Primary school and could hear the bell from my kitchen window. Good Times.

Time Flys When You're Blogging

I should go to sleep, though I had like a 4hour nap this afternoon, I'm not sure what time I  start work tomorrow. I read last week it was 12:30 - 8:00 but its subject to change and no one called me and when I called the Bridge after my nap they were closed. Whoopsi.

Wish my posts had more pictures but I haven't taken a single on this year and I realise you guys don't even know what i look like any more. Hmmmm imma have to rectify these things, I'll probs to a picture post soon, just the random images that are on my phone, nothing special.
Finally got to skype my sister after 3weeks of last hearing her voice and 10weeks of not seeing her face. It was aite.
Okay sleep, gotta be up in 10 and a half hours.

Random stuff

The Mentalist has started
I'm way behind on House
I'm behind on Gossip Girl
I'm not enjoying my course
Merlin. MERLIN! i know right?!
Should be seeing Immortals on Tuesday
Pretty Little Liars Starts on Wednesday
Finally Started Greys Anatomy season 8

I need to get out of the flat more
But one thing at a time eh?

(I also realise that I blog so that I don't have to write. This is bad.)

Club Photography

So my friend asked me to film this club event last week, but it was a dead night (Cause Halloween weekend was just over allegedly) so I didn't end up doing it. This week though he was like yeah its gonna be live. I was like skeeeeen. But i agreed, cause i mean why the hell not right? That and the even was literally across the road. I mean I can see it from my balcony. As in I step out of the lobby onto the pavement and I cross the street. Yeah.

So yeah I'm at the club and to begin with its quite dead and I'm just taking a few shots of the early comers. Then next thing you know as I'm sitting in the corner on my phone (Kinda near to the entrance so I can see everyone coming in) I look over then I look back over then my head shoots up and I look back and I realise I'm seeing this guy who I refer to as The Fairy Tale Love Of My Life. Lets not forget how wild my imagination is and how melodramatic I can be okay?
I just kind of call him that because of the way we met and randomly bump into each other. I don't actually know him that well but he seems like a douchey player. All the hot ones are. Its understandable in his case though.
So yeah I've mentioned him in a few blog posts:

This is literally the third time we've had an encounter. So I'm still sitting in the corner but he's Mr popular so he's chatting to a few people by the door. I get up and wander around the bar a bit, snap some pics of some peeps then wonder back over to around my stool, and he just so happens to be sitting less than a meter away. So before I plonk my lazy ass down again I go up to him and the chick he's sitting next to and ask them if the want their picture taken. (All casual like) Then as I'm gearing up my camera he tilts his head to the side and points to me and says "Don't I know you?" I'm a pro when it comes to playing dumb, so i tell him to hold up a second. Quickly snap his picture then get closer to him; "What we're you saying?" and he repeats himself. then I'm all "Erm....You do? Where from?" And he's like, "Don't you live down the road?" Then my memory suddenly comes back out of know where and I suddenly remember where I know him from ;)

Sadly that's as close as we got that night as I was "working" and the bar was loud and he knows a lot of people. He did stand next to me and i took him bottle of wine and swigged a bit.

Till next time Dan, Mon Amour

Doubley Stood Up

I was all set to watch the movie In Time on Tuesday cause i have an Odeon points card and i get 25% off on Tuesdays. Anyways we and my friends we driving around on Monday trying to find a Pizza Hut and i mentioned i was going to see it. Then one of them mentioned that we should go and see it together. I straight up said no. Id planned to see it myself and i was looking forward to it etc. They did the whole calling me a loner thing and i was like yeah yeah yeah whatever. In the end i relented, mostly because if I went with them then it meant we go to Cineworld, and we all know how shit the screen at Odeon are. So yeah Tuesday evening we were going to go

It got to Tuesday and i text them and was like the 18:55 on looks good, but then i a text asking of I could find anything earlier because my friend had basketball at 9:00 so wouldn't be able to see it all. There wasn't another one on so I'm a little peeved. But especially cause i was busy on Wednesday afternoon. But they agreed to pick me up at 10:30am so we could go see the 11:00am showing. I was like sure whatever.
That night i was doing a bit of club photography (Which reminds me about something else i need to blog about actually) and so didn't get in till like 4:00am and was in bed half an hour later, but i still managed to get myself up 5hours later to get ready to meet them at 10:30. It was cool cause they were picking me up. It got to 10:30 and I didn't hear a word. I didn't hear anything from then until 4:15 in the afternoon.
I know I could have text them asking where they were when they were like 10mins late, and i wasn't really all that surprised when they didn't show up, which made me have a few realisations:
1. I expect people to let me down
2. I like being angry at people
Luckily these tow things work hand in hand.
At the same time why should i have needed to text them anyways? They said 10:30 and i was ready. The End. I did my thing at uni then just went next door to Odeon. It pissed me off especially because i caught the 18:00 viewing ant it was a Wednesday which means a few thing.
1. Its Orange Wednesday so the cinema if full
2. Its after 17:00 so its more expensive and they let anyone in.
All things I try and avoid especially because i go and see movies so often.

They called me around 4 and i didnt answer (Mainly cause i was in uni and the room i was using had a class on) then after i did watch the movie i had like another 4missed calls. I didn't bother replying. I think it finally got to 9:00ish when they called and i answered. Actually it wasn't even them who called it was a friend so that made me look even more pissed cause i wasn't answering their calls but i answered him. Whatever. The guy tried to shift the blame on me. I was like, Hell no it was your idea and i was ready im not your mum, if you can get to a lecture for 9 then its not my fault you cant get to an arrangement for 10:30.

Okay thats the end Pretty sure i waffled for most of this post but meh.
Also you note that i keep using the words "THEY didn't pick up" and other such plural related words. I was going to see the movie with half of my couple friends. Partly another reason why i didn't want to go with them. A small one but a reason non the less.

Taking Things Seriously

Yesterday i had my first assessment.
It was based on that place we went to Edale, and if you remember i found it so boring and me and my partner got on the 4:30pm train back as opposed to waited for the 7:29pm one because we were essentially don't by 3:00pm and sat in the pub with a bunch of other people that had finished. The weather was shitty so its not like we could have filmed any more if we had even wanted to. The hell i was sitting in that pub for another 4 and a half hours so we left.

Fast forward to my assessment on Thursday and during the feedback one of the tutors. Thinks she's the module leader cause she doesn't teach me. Anyways she comes out and saying
"I think you guys have no excuse for not having enough shots because you were one of the first one to leave" The whole classroom starts cracking up with laughter and so did me and my friend. It was horrible. Well horrible funny but still horrible. It was actually uncontrollable. After we had sat down and peeps were chatting to us they were all saying how unfair it was for her to bring that up, cause if it was that much of a big deal then why not email us or request to have a word around the time it had happened. They were saying that she looked like she had been waiting three weeks just to point it out. That's true to be honest. I didn't actually think of it at the time. Im usually the one to argue back with anyone but i was to busy laughing my ass off to fully comprehend the situation. After at like the very end she made a comment about people not taking the assessments seriously and that to remember it is like an exam. Yes i heard that hint loud and motherfucking clear.

I think its just deep if she fails us over that cause at the time we were done and we werent even the first ones to be finished, we just left first. Deep times, also i think we worked really hard on our project considering how much we hated the POS.

Shit Just Got Serious

Angry Birds, downloaded from Google Apps. Don't remember what level but its in part 3

Sunday, 6 November 2011


I'm never sure whether to take this as a compliment or not.


Quick Angry Post

It really irks me when people call me stupid for dumbness reasons.
Today I was out for lunch with this person and they showed me a picture of a beach in Nigeria on their phone and my immediate response was
"Wooow I didn't know they had beaches in Nigeria" and the dude was like "Don't be stupid" but in a really harsh way.
Okay I know it may seem really obvious to some people and a few of you reading this will agree with the dude, but in all fairness I've never been and the thought has never occurred to me.
If someone had said to me: Does Nigeria have beaches? I may have stopped and thought and realised where its placed in Africa and come to the conclusion that it most likely did have beaches. But that didn't happen.

My personal perception on the place is only based on the jokes or random questions I'd randomly ask my mother but in general stories or answered questions, not once did they mention beaches. Streams and Rivers and Lakes and Watering Holes (Jokes) yes but not beaches so why would I ever need to give it a second thought.
I did snap back at the dude and refused to acknowledge anything they said for a while even after they apologised, but it just getting my blood boiling. Well i might not have known it before but i know it now, its called learning.
I also looked at a few beach shots and I didn't realise the place looked to beautiful, in my head every things got a yellow tint

Okay rant over but I'm still pissed especially cause i allowed this dude to stay in my bed for the night whilst i didn't sleep, on the couch. Post later maybe?

Saturday, 5 November 2011


For some reason when i saw this advert on the TV the other day i was absolutely enthralled. I dunno what it was about it but it like opened up my creativity.

Adverts about Cars, Phones and Perfume are the ones to watch.


Sorry but that rap was hard. JB I give you your props.

Friday, 4 November 2011

I just think this is too ah-mazing

The first place i became fully aware of it was on the movie Takers during Chris Browns chase scene and you know that weren't know mofo stunt, so what do you know, i guess Breezy has skills after all.

I need to schedule in times

To go and see quite a few movies
and to think i was doing so well with the whole watching one movie a week thing.
Hmmm lemme think:
In Time
The Ideas Of March
We Need To Talk About Kevin (Possibly, i would rather read the book)
The Adventures of Tin Tin: Secret of the Unicorn

It doesnt sound like a lot but it builds up and Odeon dont keep their movies for long and if i wanna see them cheaper then i have to see them at certain times/days. That and theres a new film that tickles my fancy every week or so.
Being and avid film watcher is hard work.

Thinking about it

Ive got a hell of a lot of work to do for uni.
But i'm okay with it, not feeling totally overloaded-yet, feel like im coping, lets face it the stuff that i'm doing isnt necessarily hard its just fitting everything around each other. That and working in a group or pair means that you have to agree on a time and place and idea and your just sitting there thinking, eughk if i was working by myself i'd be done in a week. But whatever i suppose its good to work in groups and work and what not.
A lot of the time i'd prefer to do things by myself but thats mainly because of the way i work, i like to get things done and over with so i have loads of the time at then when everyones panicing and just starting to just relax and go see a movie or whatever of you get what im saying man i havent used any full stops in a while pause.
Other than that i havent been doing a lot, ignoring some friends cause i need a vacation but i think i'll start replying come Saturday? I started this i think when i left their house on Saturday or Sunday night and i bumped into one of them on Monday and another on today so whats another day and a half.
Also theres this guy who was on my course last year and we speak just randomly like you know if theres no one else to talk to and what not, and all this time i never realised that i didnt know his name, that or i thought it was something elsem something mor along the lines of Andy or Adam, but i found out that his nmae was Christi. Yup. My thoughts exacvtly.
Gotta love life eh?
My flatmates are leaving me tonight, ones going home till Monday and the others just going off to Manchester till sometime tomorrow, she said she'd be back by the time i get back from work..
Which reminds me, i still havent got my hours yet. Hmmm.

Wednesday, 2 November 2011

So i guess its November again.
Man the years gone quick.
Anyways not much to report.
Im ignoring the calls of my friends so i can have a little me time
That and im fed up of being thought of as a home wrecker.
No ones said those words exactly but that's the one i'm using to describe
the way people are acting and what they're saying.
Plus i get dragged and caught up in peoples lies.

It was my dads birthday yeasterday.
I rang him, he didnt pick up and i got happs cause it meant i could get away with
just dropping him a text.
But he called me back mid text.
I said happy birthday and stuff and he said stuff but i honestly blank out when im
talking to the man, i make encouraging and acknowledging sounds. The End.

Did some editing for a tutorial ive got tomorrow and i have to say this is the shittest
piece of work that ive produced sing Raise Your Voice in year 10. Jokes Times.
Whatever as long as it passes than thats a-okay with me.

I need to get back into writing, i do love it but i need inspiration.
I need cupcakes and a cocktail.
