2019 WRAP UP, 2020 STARTUP!

147 days later and I’m back to blogging, wheww chile what a long time, I would apologise for being inactive but I’m not going to because having writer’s block is REAL, I have blogs in my drafts that have been started but not finished hopefully I can get those out to you lot sometime next year, not hopefully I WILL get those completed and put them out next year.

giphy

Bet you’ve been wondering where I’ve been…If you answered no, free you because I know you’re going to continue reading and want to know what’s been happening in my life and if you said yes you’re either nosey or you genuinely want to know where the fuck I’ve been, I’ve wondered too, but somedays I look back at the whole year and it’s certainly been busy, I’m generally a very busy girl, this year has also been hard for me work-wise I had a manager that didn’t believe in my career prospects it made me alter how I saw myself for months, it made me question myself every day, whether I was fit for the position, whether I could actually be a leader, so many things were shuffling around in my mind, however, if you’re sane enough in life you’d know not to mess around with my career because I’ll only come back stronger, I remember I had a meeting with my manager and she thought I was dumb I remembered something she didn’t my ammunition must’ve taken her aback because she was certainly lost for words, anyways long story short she either resigned or got fired I believe she got fired because I definetely reported her ass to management and when I was telling management what was going on LOOOOL she didn’t stand a chance.

giphy-8

We got a new manager and I thank God for her also my deputy manager and all my colleagues so now I’m training for senior care worker which I’ve always wanted, I’m also doing a Level 3 certificate in web design and development, I’m excited for what 2020 can bring hopefully more career opportunities, twenty-one years on this earth and I’ve learnt so much and I  never want to stop.

giphy-6

Anyways yardiyardiyaaaa enough about the boring part of my life, I’ve recently just come back from Amsterdam, 10/10 experience apart from DBE cancelling rest up LB though.

giphy-7

If this part of the blog doesn’t make you want to go Amsterdam, then please go get high and come back to this section, because it’s not me that’s holding you back.

Amsterdam 2019 let’s get into it:

I booked Amsterdam 31st May 2019 with my friend ‘Adz’ well she booked it I just sent my money each month, we booked on ‘Love holidays’ however our holiday was discounted as they always have sales on, the cost should’ve been £903 altogether but we paid £292 each which included flight (Easyjet) + hotel (Ozo Hotel 4*) we paid extra for a private shuttle which was £33 each and two suitcases which were £33 each and this was all for 5 days so final price was £584, we booked all our activities via ‘Get your guide’ app if you haven’t heard of it get to know, we booked about seven activities via the app which was £117 each, if you book without the app I promise you look in your pocket and you’ll discover a burn mark. 

giphy-3

Spending money, I changed up £358 which gave me €400 I nearly vomited in Tesco’s, this was money for food, weed and transport, my friend took away €150 but also had her debit card with her, we paid for 3 extra activities out there but it wasn’t crazy expensive.

giphy-4

Small disclaimer

I met Adz (Adonae) the day before we flew out, as she stayed round mine it makes more sense I lived closer to Luton, We became friends through Twitter and have been good friends for roughly 2+ years, crazyyyy right!

The first time meeting wasn’t anything crazy you can learn about someone through text, and also learn a lot more when you meet them too, literally the best person to go with, she’s a lot like me which scared me a lil bit, we liked the same things from food to activities, we gave people the same looks in public when we saw something funny or weird and looked back at each other for reference, I can’t fault her she literally booked the holiday and activities and I praise her because I would’ve preferred for her to do it and me to just fling the money over, I can hear the whinging bastards already “WhEre’S YoUr ReAl fRiEnDs” “wErEn’T YoU ScArEd Of bEiNg RoBbEd”  My gut instinct has been swindled a few times but I’m not stupid I’m picky on who I meet in a real-life if I said I’ll meet you, in reality, hold on to your hats 2020 is coming, however, twitter teaches me every day about madness occurring, I wouldn’t hand over 100s of £££s without being certain, and look I’m in my house now back from dam, no damage is done just memories made.

giphy-2

Lastly each day I figured out mine and Adz’s morning routine, I found it hilarious, so we’d wake up at some awkward hour like 6am go on our phones for a few minutes then go back to sleep, then we’d wake up again at 11am and go to each other “We’ll get up in half an hour” both agree to continue to watch TV or be on our phones, ask me did that half an hour ever come? During that time we’ll also be snacking, then around midday, we’d get ready for our day, every morning same routine, it’d be funny cause it was the same and we’d just laugh about it.

23rd November:

Adonae arrived around 15:20pm, she met my family who was already at home, but I already had something planned so my brother dropped us both to my work, it was the weekend I planned for my dad to come into my work to do a reggae/soca evening for my residents, they loved it including my colleagues and me, long story short we got home around 7, both ate, watched a few episodes of something on Amazon prime then proceeded to pack at 10pm, Long story short we were overweight but hear this only by 3.1kg we still had pay £12 each extra loooool, Easyjet can honestly fuck off, nothing easy about ‘easy’ jet, why is there an Easyjet plus who’s paying £150+ for extra’s are you tapped in the head? DO YOU KNOW WHAT PISSES ME OFF WITH SMALL AIRLINES? NO? Well, you’re going to find out, wait for it…Priority boarding, why do Easyjet have priority boarding it makes zero sense, not even just EasyJet small airlines WHY? We’re all going to the same destination are we not? Or is the plane going to stop off in the middle of England and Amsterdam and tell people ‘Please mind the drop between the plane and the clouds’ and it’s always the posh cunts in suits as well, tossers. 

Moving on, we finished packing and once we closed our suitcase there was no way on God’s green earth that it was being opened till we got to the hotel, it was full to the brim, even our hand luggage was full, we went to bed at 2am and was up for 4am, my friend picked us up and off to the airport we went, someone tell me where is Luton Airport, why is the airport still in construction mode? Luton Airport is so ghetto, I’m surprised they even had booking scanners in there, and London claims Luton since it’s London Luton airport if Luton was a place in London it’d be Harlesden, free dem.

24th November:

We boarded our plane on time, left on time but our plane only had to slow down because too many planes were landing at Schipol airport, I’m pretty sure it was an hour thirty-minute flight or something, can I just say England are so behind in technology compared to everywhere else in the world, like so behind it’s a joke! I won’t reveal too much go discover for yourselves.

We got to our hotel around 11ish and got told we couldn’t check in till 2, but we got around it and checked in at 1, our hotel and room were so nice like it actually resembled the photos on the website, it was a 10-minute walk to the metro where are hotel was it resembled part Canary Wharf, part Milton Keynes it was weird but made sense.

We chilled, napped got ready for our first activity the ‘A’ dam lookout’ we went purely for the ‘over the edge swing’ I was excited before I nearly sat down on the swing, quickly glanced up and over the edge and pussied out real quick, as in I grabbed my bag and was on my way, my friend, of course, did it, I wished her luck and everything, it didn’t exactly help my nerves that there was a measly bar to keep me secured over my legs, ARE YOU DUMB? A bar uno am I a dick’ ed? If my chest thrust forward while up there 2 million per cent + my savings I would’ve fallen out, I don’t even have life insurance I couldn’t even afford my funeral if I died, I’m black I didn’t see any other black people up there so I took myself out the equation, y u bEiNg rACiST tEeKs, it’s actually called stereotyping, idiots.

whitagram-image-4.jpg

Soooo I left my friend to go on her own, I was giving support with my feet firmly on the ground, we took pictures after then went to the bar we both don’t drink so we just got normal fruit juice and enjoyed the incredible view. 

Let me tell you guys something about this trip, the A’dam lookout is across the river and I was thinking how am I going to get there cause my name ain’t dynamo I can’t step on water and expect to stay on TOP of water, anyways so we asked around and my girl in the tourist shop said FREE boat to the other side, the way she said FREE so calmly in this England is anything free? Not even the oxygen I breathe is free I’m sure it’s taxed. 

Long story short, we went to a coffee shop but we didn’t stay I just picked up all my essentials, which included two tubs of cookies, two pre-rolled zoots and just some baggies of weed, I smoked a spliff before bed then went back up made a cup of tea and dunked my cookies in which I’m 100% sure the weed disappeared as soon as I dunked as I didn’t feel an ounce bit different, I was even nodding going “Mhmmm yeah this is nice” all this mhmm yeah for me to feel fuck all did I spend €15 on two tubs for a fucking laugh? It was the tea I just know it but honestly, in this life, you’ll never see me digest a biscuit without a hot drink to go with it.

Don’t offer me a biscuit with no hot beverage, you can even offer hot water.

25th November:

So Monday we went to the zoo, the zoo was 10/10, it was actually amazing, I’m going to drop all the videos/pictures down below, wOrDpReSs rUinED ThE QuAliTy.

img_3372

These lions were very close to us I’m sure they were tranquilised cause if they wanted to attack us they could’ve, no fence to protect us, just me and oxygen.

I can’t lie I hate entertainment shows that involve animals, but this fat ting didn’t want to jump just wanted food all the time, found it hilarious I know this sea lion must’ve learnt flex & finesse from early!

 

Monday Evening we did a canal cruise, as in it was so beautiful, the history behind Amsterdam is amazeballs, I just thought ‘weed’ capital this is my kinda city, yeah but no, I love history even though I hated history in school but that is beside the point in school I had a curriculum to follow which I found utterly boring, but I’m grown now I can learn what I want, Amsterdam the city of diamonds, anyways yeah I nearly fell asleep on that cruise, when night time reappears unlike Madeli….anyways when night time appears I’m either buzzing wide awake or I just want to sleep, I wanted to SLEEP so bad.

26th November:

TUESDAY NOW, WE ON TUESDAY, BEST DAY OF MY TRIP, you idiots thought I was going to say of my life yeah? Well no, but the activities for this day listen 10/10!

 ‘Glow in the dark mini golf”

img_4274

I lost

The walk getting there was a trek, it was about a 15-minute walk in the cold and it was spitting, we got to one traffic light to cross and my friend saw a flash from across the road, a bunch of tourists put deh bludclart flash on and was taking photos of us saying “yoU’rE So PrEtTy” I was thinking I’m not an artefact man, now random people are going to have me on their camera roll, bare weird.

Anyways the mini-golf was so sick, I think there were 12 holes, one of them was bare unnecessary which was the last hole and the ball just wouldn’t go in, I’ve never had that problem before man:(

giphy

Second Activity was the Anne Frank (Jewish museum) as I said I love history, I didn’t love the holocaust of course not but the story behind how everything erupted and became what it was is just incredible.

After those two activities, we went back to our hotel, we chilled, snacked and napped all to prepare for our big night out, we went to the red light district always wanted to go here and we were finally doing it, my fit was drip, oooo fake drip spotter couldn’t catch me cause I wasn’t wearing any designer, catch my fit down below:

Ha, you thought I was going to put the image up, did you attend clownery college?

 

 

You:

img_4300

We left our hotel around 8 and took a stroll through Canary Wharf and onto the metro, central to the red-light district is not far at all, we had a look in some sex shops and the sex toys bumberclaartttt, oh don’t worry I took photo’s you ain’t meant to take photo’s but fuck the rules, we then had a walk up and down back streets and went to the 5D sex cinema, I’ll upload a short video but we were basically sat in a stimulator basically a rollercoaster chair, and it would move erratically with whatever goes on, on the screen, the man ejaculated and foam came out, I was in stitches, we then went to a peep show it was confusing at first but we paid €4 for 4 minutes of watching time, the first stripper we saw she was so boring, zero energy then a door opened and a new lady walked out she had ENERGY for days, these strippers/prostitutes in the red light district are peng are you dumb?? Lastly, we went to a sex show liveO sex on stage my kinda scene, strippers doing their thing my kinda scene, men in the audience getting picked out to go on stage and join in the act, one man got picked out three times looool on his third time he looked pissed, hilarious. 

We were laughing for a time cause foam squirted out🤣

Oh, and before I forget we went to the museum of prostitution (Red light secrets) nah I loved it the history behind the red light district is dope, as you can read, I’m trying not to give too much away because I want you to go and experience for yourselves.

giphy

I posted a confession  at the museum and they get stuck on a confessions wall

giphy-1

However wearing what I was wearing I didn’t feel entirely safe because some of the men were disgusting, would catcall you like a dog and when you don’t reply continue to call you all the names under the sun, I ignored and continued because I didn’t want unnecessary hassle plus if I fought someone I didn’t want to fall in the canal that shit was cold and dirty not me boy!

However, that was a night to remember, my eyes were my camera and I can’t fully explain my vision so go visit, loool you’d think the Netherlands government are paying me to promote Amsterdam like this😂.

27th November:

Wednesday was pretty chilling we chilled into the late evening and started getting ready around 16:30pm for the…ICE BAR, ice bar was cool but never again, as in never again someone would have to pay me to go back in there, so I’m pretty sure we paid for premium tickets cause we ain’t no simple bitches which included 1 golden token for the bar in the ice bar, and 2 silver tokens for the bar outside the ice bar, read and read well the first part of the ice bar tour I don’t know what was going on, this man did some speech but was bare shouting, there were different groups that went in at different times and I think you could stay in there for 45 minutes, you got handed a measly jacket as thin as one-ply toilet paper and gloves, as soon as I got in there I saw the temperature, some next polar bear climate of -9.7º, my tokens were in my pocket but there was no way in hell I was taking off a glove and getting a token waiting at the bar, drinking a drink within five seconds, do I look mad to you? The man said if you leave your drink for five seconds it’ll turn to ice? Is my name crackhead sally? I couldn’t even hold my phone to unlock it ALL I HAD TO DO WAS LOOK AT IT, I didn’t even have the energy to lift it towards my face, we basically went in said ‘ah yeah this is nice’ asked the photographer to take photos then we left, we went to the bar instead I ordered an ‘Amsterdamnned’ and my friend got ‘Sex on the beach’ we swapped, in the end, both tasted good, we chilled for a bit then decided to go ice-skating, we decided but ice skating cashier broke our hearts, it closed at 9pm we got there at 8:30pm €30 to skate for thirty minutes? You’re shitting on me.

We Left.

Not disappointed though…

We saw a dominoes beforehand and got it on the way home, so slow story quick we spent €60, and that’s £50, FAM THAT CAN FEED A FAMILY OF 5 HERE!

28th November:

Thursday was meant to be my most memorable day of the entire year but was it though? Thursday flopped me harder than my GCSEs don’t piss me off, the first motive was Van Gogh museum we got there at 5pm because on the ‘Get the guide’ app it said it closes at 7pm, the security guard said it closes at 5 and the dutch accent is strong nuh rass, even if he was trying to talk to me nice it came across rude, but we even said the app said 7pm man was trying to argue I went deaf cause it wasn’t me he was going to go back and forth with, so we left we went back to central and straight into a coffee shop whilst I was in the coffee shop I found out D BLOCK EUROPE CANCELLED, as in if someone didn’t tell me I would’ve still went, I’m so glad I got let down in a coffee shop with a spliff in my hand, so the coffee shop story with adz this girl makes me die, so I bought 1G of white widow, blue cheese and OG kush, two pre-rolled cones of sativa mixed with baccy and bought Adz a vanilla cake edible, we sat down and I sparked mine, adz has never smoked before she asked me how to smoke??? Bitch, I don’t know, honestly, I smoke every day so explaining how to someone who has never was difficult, I managed too though but it was evident it wasn’t for her, she had her edible though she was happy, adz was eating I was smoking I remember there was one point where I was vibing to the music I turned my head back around and swear to God the edible was nearly gone, I said “Eyyy you probably want to slow down a bit” as a non-smoker non-edible eater would say “Ahhhh but it’s so nice though” She never knew the decision she made was going to fuck up her whole night, so she finished it and was like “So when is it kicking in” I was like “Ha give it an hour” by that time I finished my zoot I was good, I had a guy tapping me every two seconds for my lighter, bruv who comes coffee shop without a lighter? Tapping me every 2 seconds like I’m an off licence, anyways we left it kicked in as soon as we left for her, I was dragging this girl through Amsterdam central to get our metro it was hilarious my girl just looked dazed, so we get back to the hotel and by this time she was telling me her body has gone numb, she was sat on the bed with her pizza just eating, I was packing, she went to sleep in and out I stayed awake most of the time mostly because I didn’t know how her body was going to react some people have mad reactions, some people are calm but I ain’t trying to explain to someone’s mum wagwarn for their daughter so I was in and out of sleep mostly slapping the shit out of candy crush, I finally snoozed into a light sleep at around 3am.

29th November:

Friday today was home time, Adz woke up around 8am still waved, she kept asking me “when is it wearing off” that was a question I couldn’t answer if you ate the whole thing if it was half I would’ve given you a legitimate answer, but my girl learnt her lesson, so in the morning I left her to pack I packed the night before obviously as I can function it’s literally my everyday setting, I went downstairs to smoke, this is a story I’ll never forget…So I was wearing leggings, a long top and a big fuck off fluffy jacket it was cold outside, so I began smoking as I do, get halfway through and started feeling incredibly hot as in hot like the plane’s doors open and could feel Caribbean heat, I was thinking I can’t finish this spliff but me being me I finish it, by that time I was feeling dizzy, so I managed to get back in the hotel and into the lift, I looked at myself in the lift mirror I was garnnnn, I got back to my hotel room with the grace of God, as soon as I got in I started removing my clothes, I think I know how hot hell is now! I downed a whole can of Fanta, bitch I had a hot flush for a whole goddamn twenty minutes, I was thinking ‘rah is this how my 21 years on this earth is ending? You’ll do a real g like that, ight sn’ Thinking back it was funny but in the moment nah no thanks not again, but the maddest thing was I had that same spliff on the Monday same strain, it was just weird, I felt like Brian Finch (Limitless) when he was getting those side effects from the drug NZT but it ended up being a hoax.

giphy

So the Friday we went to the Van Gogh museum it was so so good, apparently going high is a vibe I wouldn’t know mine wore off, I wasn’t expecting it to be so modern but hey ho move with the times I guess…the building is huge the backdrop is amazing for photos, yeah the art was nice too.

We spent around an hour there then went back to our hotel in time for our transfer back to the airport, our flight was delayed of course Easyjet would be however we arrived back in England around 7pm, I got my weed through without a hitch cause like I said Luton Airport is the absolute ghetto.

We booked our trip via

11 activities in 5 days, wheww chile my kinda scenes.

So this year I went on two holidays one to Zante (read the blog on that, if you haven’t) and obviously Amsterdam, however, Amsterdam was 10/10, maybe minus a few points, because I nearly got run over 50 times a day, my company was literally my opposite, we did activities we both wanted to do, like the only thing I could fault was the weather every day spitting, not even real rain one placebo & DBE cancelling but whatever man. 

Hope you lot have enjoyed reading about Amsterdam as much as I’ve enjoyed typing about it, and hopefully, some of you go and enjoy as much as I did, but my next trip there I’ll be in strictly coffee shops.

This year I finally started a podcast called ‘Live & Relevant’ with @brands0311 & @_Jmensah it’s taken at least 10 months to come off the ground due to a few problems we had at the very beginning, but we’ve done it, the first episode is coming out very soon and will be available on Soundcloud & iTunes then, later on, we’ll roll out towards Spotify. We all met on the very first day of filming together but we all spoke on a regular so it was hardly awkward and besides I’m not an awkward person at all, during the whole session I was mildly waved as in I smoked 4 and I was still fine? As in?? 

However, as a team, we’d all appreciate if you could follow our podcast page on Twitter and us individually, any topics that you would like us to speak on please shoot your shot in our DMS we’re all open books and would like our voices heard, whether you agree or disagree with our opinions that is your own.

Lastly, the biggest shoutout to @NK1STUDIO one of the main struggles we had was looking for a studio to record in, the prices I was seeing boy oh boy mi nuh tink suh, but I was scrolling through Twitter one day 3 months ago and they came up, affordable, reachable for all of us, boom shack a lacka slapped it in the group chat, everyone agreed on a date, payment succeeded, it was like planning a Thorpe park link-up but with us, everything went to plan.

Oh, also a 5-minute walk from Star Lane (DLR) & they literally have a pizza restaurant next door, like recording sessions + pizza+ 5-minute walk to the station= Heaven

AND the two people running it all are amazing, wish them all the success for 2020!

Since I started blogging I’ve been kind of nervous grabbing opportunities regarding blogging, most obvious reason my turn around time is slow not because of laziness but the thought process of how I’m going to piece everything together is very draining but it’s lowkey fun as well, but as 2020 is coming to a start in 5 days, I’ve grabbed two opportunities I’ll be writing a review for @Ts.cupcakes (T’s Cupcakes) it’ll be coming in January so keep an eye out.

I’ve also joined @RealTalkBlog18 as a guest writer so next year I’m looking to put out a lot more content on this platform as well as my own, I wanna do reviews also, I know my strengths and this year was not it, I know I can reach a bigger audience which I’m going to do, reach out to me if you want a blog written about any sort of business minus gossip I am not the sun newspaper nor am I UK TL TEA

I’m finally bringing this blog to an end, this year has been something a lot of learning curves that I need to incorporate into next year, I need to drop bad habits, maybe those will get dropped in 2021 who knows, I now know my strengths and I know I can go far if I continue to push myself, fuck other people no cap but no one can push where you want to go as hard as yourself, born alone and die alone if your friends jumped off a cliff would you? Might seem common to say no but there’s a lot of sheep around, some people can’t think for themselves let alone do anything without a backup dancer to help their already failed process, I started all my journeys on my own, no second opinions, I’ve had a lot of people in my past that think they know what’s best for me, but in true reality, I just turn off, I don’t want to hear what you have to say, anything I’ve got I’ve worked for it no shortcuts just a straight grind, 2020 is really another year, yeah a new decade faxx no printer bitch, but next year a bitch is going to be trying and succeeding, work in silence let success be your NOISE, I’m coming for everything, Health & Social Care NVQ level 2? I’m getting that next year, NVQ Level 3? Yes! Level 3 web & development? Hell yeah, 30k+ views on the podcast? Easy 30k+ views on my blog by 31st December 2020? Hard but not impossible, I have so many goals which for my own sanity I will not post all over socials, but when I hit them you will all know!

giphy

I’ve had a lot of favourite times this year but my ultimate times have been under the needle, not the surgery one please the tattoo one, I love my tattoo’s and the ones I’ve got this year, being in the tattoo studio I’ve been able to catch up on sleep, slap-up people on candy crush and enjoy the 0 tolerance of pain

I’m so thankful for people who have walked into my life this year and made it even more fun than I was already having, having friends from all over is lit because I can move up and down this country without a care in the world, so grateful for the people that have left my life and that’s people that called themselves friends but true colours really showed when I was least expecting it but it’s cool, true colours were shown when people thought I was schleep I was alive and kicking during all of it, but like if you want to leave just pick up and go, don’t do this bitching shit because I promise you I don’t give a fuck, I’ll smoke a zoot and get over it in seconds, might find this moist me typing this, but some people think they’re so significant in your life when that ain’t even the truth

img_4309

Thank you to everyone who still continues to read my blogs and gives feedback as and where possible, I’ve ghosted long enough and I can only come back harder no one can blog like Teek’s, and small shout out to my mum even though she’ll never read this which is good cause that Amsterdam trip red light district needs to stay under wraps, but sometimes my mum helps me with blog topics where I struggle she always says to give her credit so there is her crumb of credit. 

giphy-1

If you have any topics that you’d want me to talk on and give my own take then hit me the fuck up, my DMS are open!

Chase Lizzy until she chases you.

giphy-3

2020 is everyone’s year, you want something you get it, believe in yourself, promote yourself and most importantly network & I promise you, you’ll see the results! 

Last thing, a big FUCK YOU if you voted conservatives, and a big THANK YOU to those that voted labour, you’ll be granted a place in heaven and that’s on a G ting!

See y’all soon!

THE CREATOR BEHIND THE CONTENT

No one knows me like myself, and I think it’s the right time to give my readers an insight into my life!

giphy-27

Some of you have been here since my very first blog post Men are trash?‘    and some of you are just starting this journey with me and Y’all I have TOPICS for 2019 so just make sure you stick around.

Before I get into anything can I repeat for the 1000th time I wasn’t born in London, I was born in Aylesbury, My mother and two brothers are all from west London ACTUALLY the whole of my mums side of the family is from West London, little ole me I’m Aylesbury born I’ve just grown up in between country life and city life and my mothers side is Grenadian.

My father now, bmt I’ve heard so many stories I don’t know what to believe anymore, Born in Guyana, moved to Nottingham to live with his father and then moved to London where he has resided for pretty much all of my life, Northwest repping, but my father is a very talented man in the music industry which has had opportunities to play shows around the Caribbean with his band, and has spent months out of the U.K while working and living his best life, my fathers side is Guyanese, Bajan and Jamaican.

When people ask me where I’m from I just say London because it’s easier than saying Aylesbury when I used to say Aylesbury I had to keep explaining where it was ” 45 minutes out of London, one hour tops if you drive slow, near Bicester Village, Milton Keynes” And after saying all of that I’d just be like “Aylesbury prison” Everyone knows that prison, such a shit reputation who wouldn’t honestly?

Being in between two places all the time I became very familiar with West London and Northwest London very quickly, my mother started letting me go London by myself from the age of 13/14, before anyone thinks (iRrESponSIble MoTHer) first of all NO, no she wasn’t, I have family in London so it was me more time to visit family, I always had my phone on me at all times, nothing ever went wrong, someone would always be at the other end to collect me, I’ve been using TFL I knew my way around, I wasn’t shy if I got lost I’d ask, and then when I got to around 15 I did whatever the fuck I wanted really, visited friends, family, found myself chilling around east London more and more, I used to be everywhere.

giphy-45

For my own sanity, I will not be revealing everything.

Let’s get into it…

GROWING UP:

For those of you that are my true supporters, I wrote a blog just over a year ago about ‘broken families  and it pretty much describes my life as a young human going through heartbreak at such a young age, everything in that blog is true, my heart still hurts till this day but I’m GROWN now. 

giphy-36

I had a ‘Stepdad’ introduced into my life so early, did I like it? No, absolutely not, no matter what my dad has done, he’s still my dad and no one else can replace that or even create a similar bond but that’s me, everyone is different I know some kids that call their stepdads ‘dad’ makes me feel a bit queezy but really what is my own, whenever someone asks ‘Do you have a stepdad?’ I kindly reply no and will replace it as ‘That’s my mum’s husband but not my dad’ I don’t know it makes me feel really ill, but some people don’t know any better for my new friends they’d ask and I nip it in the bud real quick, but for my friends that I’ve had for years they know what it is, they can tell the placebo from the real g, I even look like my dad as much as I hate to admit it I do.

I really grew to dislike to hate my dad real quick and if you read the broken families blog, you will be able to tell why very quickly, lies, fake promises I’ve had it all I’m now 20 now (21 soon come♥) We both don’t have a solid relationship as dad and daughter. I learnt roughly around the age of 10 that it wouldn’t happen, I’ve had siblings find me through facebook and tell me we’re related instead of my own father telling me, I found out around seven years old, I had an older sister and younger brother, I’m still shaking till this day.

On my mothers side of the family, I have 2 older brothers, these are the only siblings I’ve claimed from birth till now, ones 28 and the oldest 30, I can’t lie my brothers made my childhood despite the pain with everything else a blast, we had so much fun, being the youngest sibling and a girl it had its perks♦ We literally did everything together, when my oldest brother passed his driving test, we did trips upon trips, my other brother used to take me to house parties when I was like 8, take me to his basketball games, but please we can argue and sometimes me I LOVE a good argument, me and my middle brother used to argue all the time, maybe because we were both left-handed and used to sit right next to each other for dinner or maybe both petty, my oldest would never get involved, just turn off really but when my brothers used to argue, me and my mouth we’d be their front and centre ‘SHUTUP BOTH OF YOU’ I just hated unwaranteed noise and their arguements would be pointless. However my mum, my brothers and the rest of that side of the family no matter how much we argue they’re my anchors for real, me personally I would’ve had millions of breakdowns without them but like real g’s they’ve kept me afloat.

On my father’s side I have….wait for it…. 5 siblings, FIVE SIBLINGS, I knew about 3 of them, the other two the great creator of Facebook made a social site so it could glue people together, till this day the message I received on that site will shake my bones till death…I knew about 3 siblings but the only reason I claimed my brothers on my mum’s side so much is that they lived with me, I saw them day in day out, they were THERE, the others were there but not there, do you get it? Hopefully, Y’all do. There’s so much to this story but it wouldn’t sit easy for me being all over the internet when this isn’t anyone’s fault apart from my fathers, and my other 5 siblings I have love for them I really do, but it’s the way things came about which just startled me a lot, hopefully, one day we can have a bond. 

giphy-37

Apart from all that, my growing up was good, Y’all I was a girl youngest in charge I pretty much got everything I wanted, I had the bodyguards that protected me and till this day still do, look out for me, I had my mum who’s clothes was my tissues when I wanted to cry, this isn’t a fact but might as well be I think I cried so much when I was younger I have no tears left to cry in my older age, and it’s sad because sometimes I want to bawl out in tears but all I get is one tear drop…pftt…pathetic. 

EDUCATION:

Let me tell you, I was a good as gold in school, it was when I reached secondary school and college everything and I mean EVERYTHING went downhill, like in junior school I was a boffin like I remember one day I was riding to school and I got out of my street and my tire went FLAT, fam the way I was crying in the middle of the road because I was going to be late for school loooooool, I chucked the bike back in the shed like it wasn’t brand new, how can transport that I relied on to make me late, but secondary school was my prime time, so in my secondary school in each year there were 8 form classes one was called disc and the other shit side was called over, put the words together you’ll get discover, whewww clever. 

I was in S the best form ever so obviously in year 7 it’d be 7s, year 11 it’d be 11s and just to put it out there to any of my past school aquaintances disc was the best side of the year, you ‘over’ lot kiss my teeth, you lot didn’t know about trouble if it was spelt out. Personally, I loved school, I made some good 5-year friendships, and I said what I said some of you were just five-year friendships. My first day of year 7 was just uneasy I was in ‘over’ for two seconds before I transferred to disc I figured I didn’t want to learn French, didn’t want to learn Spanish either but it is what it is, I settled with Spanish, learnt about 6 words in two years was quite proud because I’m pretty sure I saw my Spanish supply teacher more in two years than my actual teacher, the poverty. 

Anyways my first school day was uneasy, those school kids that used to scowl at me like we went to school at the zoo, long story short I got bullied for like four weeks till my brothers found out, these man said they were going to the school, I was really calculating in my mind thinking you can’t actually do that, but the big mouth I had it stayed close my mind was shouting at me like ‘LET THEM DO THE TING’ Honestly I don’t even know how it stopped, but me and those man came friends and that’s when our form turned upside down, because we were all trouble, first day of year 7 I got slapped with anger management classes, did I go though? No, no I did not, it was in my time and not theirs and that can’t run.

giphy-44

Another thing that just made school uneasy was my form tutor, I had a dislike for teachers but my dislike for him, he was top of my list, you know those teachers that come to you about punctuality, this man could never in his wildest dreams come to me about lateness or anything, school is 5 days a week, how can you be late 5/5 days a week, not once but FIVE, EVERY FUCKINNNN DAY, it was very jarring on those winter mornings when all I wanted to do was put my bag down and go to assembly, do you know how awkward it’d look when other forms will come out of their classrooms going to assembly but my form were the ones still outside, and being in year 9 upwards being late for assembly would actually be a pisstake, would you get a seat in assembly or would you be stood up for twenty minutes while teachers just talk the most crap??? Some days our form tutor wouldn’t even come in, but we got ownage of the keys to our classroom, so pretty much every day we’d invite other forms in, my classroom looked like one tip after, I remember one guy jumped on the table and it snapped in half, we threw stuff up at the ceiling and the ceiling tiles would move, it’d just be bare gappy, like I mean sometimes he was their mostly he wasn’t, we’d just be dashed supply teachers, and then most of the girls in my form would be foaming at the mouths because apparently, our form teacher was ‘good looking’ I was the one who went Specsavers all the time and spent my pension in there yet I couldn’t establish what they were gawping at…

giphy-43

There were so many fights at school it felt like I went to Waterloo road 

“Meet me at the bus lanes, 3pm don’t be late”

This was one iconic sentence that went around, having your school outside bus lanes was superb, the worst place to have a fight but the best thing to say.

I think in my school everyone got away with so much by the regular shmegular teachers, but the heads of years, head teachers, heads of departments were not there to play, even the supply teachers thought they had a role, nah mate..stay in your lane

  • Teachers selling cigarettes to students
  • Teachers affairs revealed
  • Teachers having relationships with students
  • A teacher had an online sex journal, got discovered by a student
  • Test tubes going up vagina’s 
  • Teachers minding their business while a students face gets rearranged and looks like they need plastic surgery after
  • Teachers paying students to leave them alone

Where was I while this was going on? Oh me, I was doing what the teachers did during fights but me I was the student they…they were the teachers, the ones that have a duty of care over us.

Sigh I got into a lot of trouble over the years, my mother probably went to two of my parent evenings, my first one in year 7 and my last one in year 11, those letters were nowhere to be found, grab it, shred it, get rid of the evidence, but my mum was used to the trouble because my brothers went to the same school and caused more ruckus than me, most I did was push people down the stairs, trip them up and act like it wasn’t me, got people smacked up, just the usual, Facebook got me into the most trouble back in the day, I saw sirens at school because of Facebook, I had an assembly about me because of Facebook and a couple ratty snitches, but me the same mouth on socials is the same in a real life, no cap.

giphy-40

College was another ball game, I went to a college 1hr out of my area because I told the people in my area that five years was enough with them I don’t want to see them for another 2/3 years, I studied computer studies deep this I only had to go in for 2.5 days a week I went in for either 2 days a week or half a day, nothing more nothing less, I forgot that the tutors had my mum’s number and email address, Long story short they had my email after and number, no longer had my house number, mum’s number or email, sometimes the system wants to get rid of you before you even have a chance. I had my chance(s) but that’s not the point  (Mum if you’re reading this I’m sorry but whatever beatings you have after I’ve finished typing this, I’ll call childline) I didn’t like any of my tutors, I only liked 5 people in my class, but long story short I got a double distinction in my course and got kicked out of college on the last day, make it make sense.

CAREER(S)

Whewwww long story short I’m on my 7th job, I’ve been working since I turned 16 at one point I was working 3 jobs at once, I didn’t have a life, I’m very much money orientated everything I own I’ve bought myself, gadgets, electronics, clothes, shoes all me, I don’t rely on anyone well I try not too, independent living while still living at home, Issa thing.

giphy-31

When I turned 17 I decided to work in the care industry, back then I was so dumbfounded I thought it was good money, Y’all was I wrong its shit money for an industry that works incredibly hard, I was young I wanted money but most importantly I wanted the experience, five years down the line I’m still in care and I love it, no day is the same, but every day it’s new stress. 

In care work, there are different sectors to work in, I’ve worked in Learning disability, mental health, elderly and supported living, none are the same all different.

I’m still deeping this year September will be five years, I haven’t achieved what I’ve wanted out of this industry yet, but all I’m saying is I’m very close to the goal and when I get there I will honestly cry the happiest of tears. 

It’s an incredibly hard job or even career to some people, the laws you need to know, training, some cases common sense but common sense ain’t that common anymore, you can’t just work in care, you need a heart, an understanding of what you come to work to do every day, patience, I make it look easy because to me it is, been there, done that, but you never stop training or learning, no day is the same sometimes I wish but then I’d get bored.

In the new job I’m in now I work 37.5 hours a week, well that’s my contracted hours the most I’ve worked a week is 60 hours, let me tell you I was very much dead at the end of it, I either do dead on my hours or way over, no in between. 

giphy-33

I genuinely love making other people’s lives better and that’s why I do what I do, it really is the little things that make my clients happy, going out on their 1:1s, sitting down and talking with them, even the simple things in my job description, I’ve spent two Christmases at my jobs not because I don’t want to spend time with my family but not everyone has family, I know when I go home I’ll see my mum or I can ring a family member, not all my residents can do that, taking a few hours out of my day to make someone else’s holiday celebration special will always sit right with me.

If any of my readers decide they want to go into healthcare, one thing I’ll tell you now is look after your back, you might not understand this advice now but in the long run, you will. Look after your health because most employers do not care about you, they just care about you completing the task and moving onto the next one, I injured my back and was in the accident and emergency also took one week of off work because I was in excruciating pain, that was a few months ago and now again I’m back in the same position, you only get one back.

I’m leaving the care industry hopefully by next year and going into computing, been a true computer wizard since a kid, I’ve got my distinction I ain’t letting it go to waste, and there’s a lot of money to be made.

RELATIONSHIPS:

Y’all

you thought.

Just know I’m very happy over here♥

FRIENDSHIPS:

I would say my friendship groups are all mix-up, I don’t chill with just one group, not one, not two but THOUSANDS.

Not literally thousands but I know a lot of people so I ain’t stuck for choice.

Sometimes I chill with just the mandem, sometimes just the girls or even a mixture, I don’t know I find I make friends really easily, I regret some friendships and five of them ended last year some long term some short term, I ain’t saying they were the problem, it was me too (more them) I’m glad I got rid when I did, because I really tried to help one of them and I’ve never felt so disrespected in my life, but karma hit them so quickly, the other four-man I don’t know, good riddance.

I can’t even say I’m not a nasty person because when I want to be I can be bitter, but when I want to be nice I can be super nice, but you really can’t tek mi fi ediaat…Impossible.

I’ve told people things I regret, I’ve said things, seen things about me as well, must admit that was quite interesting, you know when people talk about you, and you never knew that fact about yourself, it was a madness

Telling me you don’t care but want to do tappity tap on your keyboard about me…cute, nice to know you think about me.

giphy-42

Ask my friends about me, they’ll tell you I’m a top cunt, top fucker, I’ll tell you I’m coming somewhere then don’t go so unpredictable, but I give top notch advice because I don’t give a single fuck and have 0 filter (That’s what gets me in trouble), but Y’all I can be nice.

giphy-41

Whoever wants to get to know me cool, make up your own assumption about me, don’t let someone else’s opinion cloud your judgement, because then I’ll call you dumb by association.

SOCIAL MEDIA/REBRANDING:

Well, well…well, the only way you could’ve got here is through one of my social media accounts or if you’re a real g, you would’ve received an email because you’re subscribed.

The only social media platform I use religiously is Twitter, then snapchat, and then Instagram, I only use facebook to see what’s happening around my area or speak to my family and see what’s going on.

I’ve had my Twitter account for 8 years, I haven’t always been called ‘Baddest Teeks’ I had names like ‘simpletylife’ or ‘teeksxi’ I recently changed it to ‘Baddest Teeks’ three years or so ago, if you knew what I tweeted back in the day all those madness all those gifs Y’all know why it was ‘baddest’ at the start ‘Teeks’ just a nickname, my name holds weight I don’t care what anyone says, I was there back in the day.

I have an online mouth and real mouth, but buck me inna real life and touch me I’ll show you what I’ll be using your taxes on. 

giphy-29

I was thinking of rebranding but then I was thinking who am I doing this for, for me or Y’all, I remembered I don’t give one fuck about anyone on the internet that I don’t know, BLOCK, MUTE & UNFOLLOW BUTTON IS ACTIVE USE IT! 

TEEKS THE BLOGGER & BADDEST TEEKS IS THE SAME PERSON, NO CAP.

OVERVIEW:

This was meant to be really short yet here I am approaching nearly 4000 words, this is only a small insight into my life, but if you read this thinking it’s my whole life, you’re a dickhead for sure.

If I could start my life all over again would I? 100% I would not, I pray every night and I know God has a plan for me, I’m not in a rush to get there, God’s timing is everything and I respect it.

If my life was to start over, I probably wouldn’t be here blogging, I probably wouldn’t have met the people that I did, been in the career I’m in, be alive and breathing because who really knows, I’m forever grateful and thankful I wake up every day.

Probably started my online presence wrong, but I sweaterrrrr gawddd man I don’t care, it gets me where I want to be for now, and who knows it could get me further one day.

I’ve got so many goals that I need to reach before 2019 ends, I’m completing every single one, nothings getting left behind. 

Also, may I add WEED IS MY BEST FRIEND

giphy-16

Anyways 2019 I’m really living my best fuckinnnnn life, turning 21 (March 10th), flying out to Zante for ten days in June, Getting my 4th tattoo on my back, 9 days before my 21st (Pray for me bmt) Getting my 5th tattoo under my collarbone in April (Pray again x2), going to take lots of small trips around Europe, I’m just overly excited about everything.

2019 we move.

GOODBYE 2018||TWITTER EDITION

giphy-12

*There are videos/memes in this page I apologise if you don’t see them, but I will post all videos in a thread below this post on Twitter unless you’re using a laptop they’ll 100% show up*

*DISCLAIMER* 

I am not here to draw anyone out, but if worse comes to worst then that’s your personal problem💖

The time has come for the Twitter 2018 breakdown, from what’s happened in January straight through to December and it’s been one hell of a year, personally, I haven’t seen anything like it since 2012/2013 days I was there live in the flesh on Twitter watching shots fly, anyone could get it even the people in your bio that was dead or in prison, ‘SK’s world♥’I was seeing things fly around and you don’t even have to be involved ANYONE can get it, back then you could say anything (no cap) and Twitter HQ would be like ” yeah we’ll let that fly” minus the Twitter Purge, because??? WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT? but now we in 2018 yoooo accounts were getting locked off left, right and centre, it was a tragic few days on the timeline, saw some of my favourite accounts disperse, saw them come back to stay for a few hours and back in twitter jail they went, whewwww chile the ghetto. 

Hope Y’all have popcorn, dabble of wray & nephews, a fat blunt and ready to ride out.

JANUARY

In January we had an internet sensation pop up on our timeline ‘Nusret Gökçe’ also known as salt bae, who knew to flick your wrist with salt in your hand over a piece of meat could really make you a viral sensation.

giphy-21

To me, January was a very boring month seeing that same video circulate day in day out, we really do make useless people famous, if someone told me that all I had to do was sprinkle salt over the meat and let the video marinate for a few days and I’ll wake up to 5.6 million views, a better life and Elizabeth doing stupidness in my bank account, I would’ve gone viral years ago (sigh I lied).

SALTBAE WAS 2017, I MUST’VE BEEN HIGH TYPING THIS WHEN I STARTED I APOLOGISE.

But to be honest I only heard about him this year…

 

 

FEBRUARY

On February 9th, Nike released their iconic advert ‘Nothing beats a Londoner’ in my opinion that advert was the best advert to represent London, culture on point, representation has gone clear, credible UK music personalities, sports features, a 3-minute film caught everything.

The campaign supports young unknown sports wannabe’s picked from local sports and clubs and shows us the trails they’re going through to get to where they want to be.

There are a few unknown faces that were shown for example @Boss_Darnz was selected in the advert as Nike noticed his ‘analytics’ around his social media profiles.

Even though his time on screen was limited, he still managed to have his face up in the Nike flagship store on Oxford Street and let me tell you that’s a big achievement, to have your face in the biggest Nike store in the world.

I’m telling y’all now, your Twitter analytics matter, your social presence matters, if you want something bad enough you’ll either get noticed or you’ll go and grab the opportunity yourself.

Celebrity Features: 

Gareth Southgate 

Harry Kane 

Eden Hazard 

Skepta 

Micheal Dapaah 

Rio Ferdinand

Mo Farah

Alex Iwobi

Kurupt FM

Giggs

J-Hus (3 my guy♥)

Jorja Smith

Dave 

AJ Tracey 

+ many more

Can we just deep for a minute that in a 3-minute 9-second advert, there were over 30+ known faces, 14 different locations across London , 258 athletes, a few unknown kids striving for their dream all filmed, edited, music added in such a short space of time, but let’s not forget we got the few odd cry babies that screamed and shouted that the video wasn’t diverse enough, from what I saw a lot of Asians blamed the black community for the lack of diversity as if we were the ones that created the campaign, weird flex but ok. 

“It seems like people are either black or white in London” tweeted by @KalpeshR 

Honestly, who did you want to be added into the advert? Steel Banglez? Jay Sean? 

Whewwwww chile this day you really saw people’s internalised racism jump the fuck out like a clown, once it was out there was really no putting it back, some of you were going back and forth like feral animals, anyways what’s my own.

February 21st (BRIT AWARDS) The only person I rewinded, played and repeated was Stormzy’s performance, fuck the rest of Y’all, STORMZY used his performance for the better, called out Theresa May out over the Grenfell Tower monstrosity, the same pRiMe mInIsTeR promising all these promises on Brexit is the same prime minister that said people in Grenfell will be rehoused before Christmas 2017, when I say Brexit is fucked it’s FUCKED. Stormzy’s exact sentences sent shivers down my spine, the vim in his voice, integrity in his face, yoooo my man said “Yo Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell, what? You just thought we forgot about Grenfell’ The support he got from what he said was immense, properly warmed my heart♥

giphy-18

If you still don’t know about Grenfell, Please click here.

This is where everything gets extra juicy…

MARCH 

Leicester, Leicester…LEICESTER

Well well well, March the best month of the year because it’s my birthday month, but this year it was literally the shittest, thank you poobae wherever you are, THANKS! Shitting on someone’s doorstep is beyond me, but actually pushing your trousers down to show your bum, squat and then shit on someone’s doorstep, that’s just all a bit of a sickness within itself, and it didn’t even look like normal shit, some of you university students eat normally, cooked food all the time, and then we get those slobs that go to the half-price man for pizza every day, the poo actually looked like vomit.

giphy-22

The year really starts here for the TL, because Y’all really started this off, all I wanna know is, who is POOBAE? Deep it! That is someone’s friend, maybe even someone’s misses, someone’s daughter, niece even and that is what you’re doing in the jungle of Leicester, the city where someone’s friends, friend knows someone that knows YOU! Whewww how embarrassing not that embarrassing cause apparently no one knows the culprit, bet someone who’s reading this does though.

img_3985

Poobae literally had zero shame, like in a lit up corridor, like…like? How were you not scared that anyone would’ve walked past? How did you not know that my guy’s house doorstep you shitted on that he wasn’t going to come out all within those 2 minutes? Why didn’t you think in your useless mind that their might be cameras about? Why didn’t you think that this could make you viral without you actually going viral because clearly, no one knows who this girl is, sigh one day the truth will come out. 

img_3987

And Leicester again, every time I hear about Leicester (Jungle) it’s never anything good, a video always comes out, a fight is always happening, a lot of the motives get locked off and then I see the same continuous people tweet it’s going to be ‘LoCk3d off.

LISTEN TO YOUR MATES BECAUSE SOME OF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE AT EVENTS

Whoever knows the person, when your ready let us US as in everyone, who that was, cause wheww Leicester stinks but 10X more now, that there’s shit down the corridors.

Also just because you live in ‘eXPenSiVE’ accommodation doesn’t mean this can’t happen to you (oooo is that shade) IMO 

For those that have seen the video, shall we have catchup to the feral animal that strolls around campus…

For those that haven’t seen the video here you go: 

 

How can you continue living happily, knowing you pooed on my man’s doorstep, what a terrible life..like some girls are mad, but this just topped everything! Man do you lot not know CCTV exists or? This girl has gone into hiding just like Madeline Mccann and I want them both to come out now, man I’m tired.

Please if you’ve never heard of Madeline Mccann, then bmt idk for you, but divert your energy here, if you’d like to know if not continue to scroll big man.

The fact that #poobae became a hashtag will forever make me laugh, I’m taking this one to the grave with me.

APRIL

The way I wish this month in 2018 never existed, not even this month just this person, of course, the whole TL must’ve seen Biskit whine upon his mother, his mumzy, his Marj, the woman that gave birth to him, sigh I wanted to rinse my eyes out with goose fat and make myself blinder than I am. Fammmm I could NOT believe my eyes, his mum must’ve been topic of WhatsApp group chat for weeks on end, never my yout, please. Omds let’s even watch the video again, please no one bring any more stupidness like this because brudda this isn’t it.

 

Please I’ll never forget the fraud he did, even shit fraud, I know him and Micheal (Fake Jamaican) Modern are related, both nigga’s got caught, absolute tomfoolery.

One got caught in his tracks to Paris, the man was queuing up to get checked in, what an L

img_3052.jpg

And the other one got caught out on Linkedin, sigh 

Anyways…

April really fucked up the drinks market in the UK, SUGAR TAX ON DRINK? I absolutely knew the UK was fucked as soon as my head came out the womb, but it’s gone way past that, dealing with Brexit, there’s even a playlist for Brexit on Spotify called ‘NOW! That’s what I call Brexit’ that’s just how you know no one in England is serious because even I have the playlist, it’s good to cry too when you don’t know what outcome your country is going to, Y’all cry over men and women, I cry because fredo’s went from 5p to 30p just by me blinking, also crying because Fredo probably stacked up enough 30p’s to use Harrods as a corner shop. 

img_3986

My corner shop is Sainsbury’s, soon level up to Waitrose though, God has got me.

I must also remind you that Jamie Oliver and his MP mates implemented sugar tax and Jamie Oliver and his fat self really fass up his self and created ‘jERk rICe’ I’m Caribbean and I’ve never in my life heard of Jerk rice in my entire life, been to the islands plenty of times never seen it on one menu, it’s not my culture he’s appropriating, stick to your bangers and mash, better yet drag your restaurants out of debt, small man like Jamie trying to be a big fish in a small pond, relocate.

MAY

I was shleep in this month.

JUNE

June really was THE month, World Cup and Love island all on for over a month, the switch over was timeless, from both aspects the TL moved with the times, love island brought together black twitter and fiat 500 twitter, probably the only time in the year the two got along, personally me I didn’t watch island heavily this year I watched the first two episodes and I really thought everyone was boring, if it was the 2017 love island lot on the 2018 episode it would’ve made more sense, but sigh instead of Kem and Chris we got josh, jack and dem man deya, they didn’t bring many thrills but you didn’t even need to watch to know what was going on, the tweets made it pretty clear I was tweeting like I was fully watching it, nah please I watched a few of the World Cup matches, I even tweeted about the World Cup like I watch football religiously I stopped watching football when I was like 13, since my team hasn’t won anything what’s the fucking point honestly. 

giphy

2022 we go again. 

June even brought the heatwave, the heatwave that nearly killed us all, the heatwave that made you bitches so damn unappreciative, you lot were really saying ‘cAn’T wAiT tiLl wIntEr’ and look now winter is here you’re reversing it and saying ‘sUmMeR 2019 I’M rEadY’ Carnival 2018 was still lit but it made me want to cry because rain for fuck sake FOR FUCK SAKE I wear glasses uno I couldn’t see for most of the day, central line I almost died, central line is the worst line, next year I’m getting a hotel because I’ve had enough. 

Carnival yeah I got so high on Monday I walked from Nottinghill to Kilburn, WALKED.

I only realised because I noticed some places and I was thinking Nah man I actually didn’t walk that far, Y’ALL I checked my map I was in Kilburn, I was really burning. 

img_4371

47 MINUTES? YO 2019 carnival let me just stay sober on all accounts.

giphy-5

WEST TO NORTHWEST, A WHOLE ME THAT IS AN UBER MERCHANT WALKED THAT FAR

Imagine if I drank alcohol on that day too, I would’ve flown there. 

‘BaLi i$ bA!T’ bmt idk how the TL got to this stage but apparently Bali is a bait location, you’re telling me a 20hr trip is bait, some of you think you’re so well known, you’re not, you probably saw a couple man/girls you follow and now calling it a bait location, you know what locations are bait, London, Birmingham, Leicester these trips are a few hours for some of us, but somewhere across the flipping map is bAiT, weirdos. 

giphy-6

There are bigger issues to worry about like 14th June 2018, one year on from Grenfell, I’m not even going to talk too much on this situation because it’s way too close to my heart, click here if you don’t know about Grenfell yet, but remember what Theresa May said, that everyone would be rehoused by Christmas in 2017, we’re now at the end of 2018 and that promise still hasn’t been granted, it actually makes me sick, all the people that claimed they lived in Grenfell and didn’t, they frauded the whole system out of so much money, I hope they go to hell. 

giphy-17

JULY

I don’t know what happened in this month uno, I was shleepin

AUGUST

August = A-level results day, my number one favourite month of the year, because honestly, I love seeing people doing well! 

I played my own trick on the TL as well, and some of you that shouldn’t have believed it did, which made me laugh harder than I already was, for those of you that don’t know I pretended for about two years that I went to DMU Leicester, it wasn’t just something I thought of a lot of people used to tell me they saw me on campus which was never true because I’ve never been Leicester in my life, so I decided to go along with it as well so I did the usual of putting LDN🔀DMU in my bio and told everyone I lived in a certain accommodation, I didn’t even tweet much about Leicester, let me drop what I did on the TL below & don’t forget to zoom in. 

img_4372

Anyways besides from that, the A-Level results I was seeing was ridiculous and then of course in true TL style Brompton Manor one of the top 6 academies in the country came and shelled down the TL, these lot are ridiculously talented and so so smart, sometimes I wish I was that academically talented but it is what it is, these lot truly deserve it. 

Hmmm what else happened in August of course carnival I mentioned it in the previous month, the usual Caribbean vs Africans, the usual cuss of soca, the usual ‘wHy cAn’t aFrObEaTS bE pLaYed’ the usual Caribbean people have no culture, yet it’s our street party you want to attend, Issa bit of a sticky one still, the usual bottom barrel men that can’t understand a whine is just a whine, we don’t want anything else, the usual you girls wear barely any clothes to carnival so you’ll get touched anyhow, yuck, the usual ‘cArnivAl iS geTtIng lOcked OfF’ every fucking year you lot come out with the same line, shut up man, anyways the usual…I think you lot get it now. 

August what a month. 

SEPTEMBER

Santoriniiiiiii bludclaaaat every day of September why were we seeing the same white walls, day in day out, white walls and calling Santorini bAiT aswell, honestly can you lot not just travel without saying ‘ I don’t want to go there because bare man have been’ anddd? Stay in miserable England then.

giphy-20

 The topic of the TL on one certain day of September was just mad ‘Men paying for their girlfriends friends drinks on a night out’ I’m convinced some of your friends are broké, you want your man to buy your friends drinks and then the same you would probably be upset when you find out your man has cheated on you with one of your girls, like does your friends not work??? And you girls that go around clubs table hopping for alcohol are bottom barrel that’s so embarrassing, call me ‘pick me’ all you want, I cannot deal with broke behaviour, if you can’t afford something stay home, that’s what I do, I stay home more time I just don’t want to go, I just found the whole topic sad man, I just couldn’t, leaving your house without money and depending on other people absolutely not, there’s so much money to make and you’re out here damaging other people’s pockets for your benefit, yuck man.

OCTOBER 

October was the month of just giving people clout for free by doing stupid things, fraudbae, loz and Ferdi all in one month, I low-key cried, everyone, deserves their bag but not this way, the only person that deserved their bag was OSH, my guy kept his energy throughout, loz Jesus you could tell she was getting tired from when she appeared on the radio and all the other daytime tv programmes, her voice, tone, melodies none of it was reciprocated after her Instagram video, like it was a bop like 10 times in a row, Ferdi yeah idk how he got a music video it literally makes 0 sense, but I blame you lot because I definitely didn’t entertain him, and MR fraudbae he milked it, man tried to make us believe he got signed to a record label??? He can’t even sing that was autotuned and self-belief, you lot changed your minds with him so quickly when it all came out you were backing the girl, then the girl got the video taken off of YouTube all of a sudden she was doing too much, LeT tHe mAn liVe ah Y’all really do like your agenda. 

I sharkew on the beat as well

 

MY YE IS DIFFERENT TO YOUR YEE

 

 

I would put a video of Ferdi but that guy doesn’t need anymore clout, I’VE HAD ENOUGH!

Y’all can have a picture though 

img_3049.jpg

This is the man you gassed up, loooool deekheads.

 

If y’all didn’t hear ‘imjustbait’ got his account locked off, I was screaminnnnnn one guy got his account locked off for copyright, some of you was crying like his bag is yours, some of y’all aka me showed no remorse, man does copyright every day and we’re meant to be okay with that, nah g 

 

NOVEMBER & DECEMBER

Let me be real I  wasn’t really active during these months, no matter what my screen time said, Apple needs to remove that feature because it makes me seem like an addict when that ain’t it.

giphy-11

Besides that the arguments, I’ve seen from these two months, fuck the rest of the year these LAST TWO MONTHS, oh my God, when I ain’t tweeting I’m watching, I’m watching hard because Ion need to tweet every gaddamn day, and the way you can get involved in crossfire on Twitter, I’ve had my fair share this year, we go again next year!

APPARENTLY, people have been sleeping on floors at parties? 

£30 on food for a month? That’s your own

Y’all bringing the same retired topics to the TL, can girls and guys be just friends? Keep ya dick in ya pants, and keep the flirting at 0 then you can one hunna be friends.

I saw friendships go to shit in a matter of tweets

Y’all have an opinion then put unpopular in front of it, have your opinion and move brudda, the only thing that’s unpopular is you

People bringing their personal issues to the TL then cry when everyone gets involved? Common sense where hoe??

Black Twitter arguing all year ALL YEAR EVERYDAY, then asking each other ‘wHaT ParTY iSlAnd i$ EveRYoNe g0inG T0o’ 

img_4403

Screaming support black businesses yet you ask your mates for a discount, where’s the logic? 

giphy-14

Following people but not liking them or what they tweet?

giphy-15

I’ve seen a lot of bitterness this year, you want people to be successful but not ‘that’ successful

You flipping weirdo’s keep meeting people at events and want to come to the timeline and be like ‘Twitter do your thing’ why couldn’t you do your thing and secure the number while you were with them? Must we do everything!

Thanking brands when you bought their items with your own money?? Ok

Hating people that do fraud, yet you want half price dominoes, half price Canada goose?

Still wondering what doctor would call you and let you know you’re terminally ill?

Comparing spacnation to Greenleaf and wondering how they haven’t ended up on panorama?

Y’ALL Y’all Y’all, Sunday 23rd December, from midnight straight through till 7am the TL was popping so badly we were trending! Normally on nights like these, I would’ve been asleep but clever me must’ve predicted the future because I was really doing a night shift at work, so my phone was with me 24s! I saw everything from the Instagram lives to snapchat maps to look at Shoreditch back to twitter for the roundups, the tweets from everyone was HE-LARI-OUS, you see how people were saying earlier on in the year ‘yOu mAndEm aIn’T 3vEn fUnny l!kE that’ vice Versa for the girls, EVERYONE was funny, like at one point I was so close to wetting myself but I managed to get to the toilet just in time, Ivorian doll vs Renee, you see me I was on Renee side the whole time, because my girl was on crud, from when I saw my girl tying her shoes on Instagram live at like 2am in the morning, I knew she was ready to ride out, she was in the Uber-like 5 mins later, the whole time I was watching I was like ‘shit den’ she went from wherever she was to Shoreditch, girl offed her wig shouting ‘VANESSA WHERE ARE YEWWW’ I felt the integrity through my screen, my phone was even shaking probably my hands but whatever! I even saw man in the snapchats saying ‘she actually came’ huh? Keep up, it was definitely a dat ting when I saw people driving to Shoreditch just to witness beef, pls if I wasn’t at work I would’ve been onsight tew, Renee actually went out in the winter from what I saw a top on, even offed her wig from then I was like SHIT THIS IS SARIOUSSSSS STUFF, but quick question, where was the culprit once she got to said location???? Obviously now she wasn’t there, so next thing I saw R was in her next Uber to her estate, banging down doors that’s how real opps ride out when I saw she got into the flat LOOOOOOOOL, curtains but was my man there? No, sigh

One thing I don’t get is, Vanessa, put her address on snapchat and wasn’t expecting anyone to go to her, like? Make it make sense, not even your address your parents address, you see those mad antics there could never be me, first of all, I don’t fight, second of all I would’ve cleared out my bank account and gave Renee all my p’s because??? I ain’t trying to look in the mirror every day to see my ears where my mouth is, my mouth where my nose it, listen NO TENK YOU, God made me this way I ain’t trying to go through plastic surgery to correct it all

‘y0u dOn’t KnOw wHeRe I cAme FroM’ now the whole of snap, insta, twitter maybe even the Facebook oldies do too hun, I’d be so pissed spending all that time doing up Uber for you not to be found. 

And you Instagram mongrels we saw you making accounts to join in with us, you ain’t one of us, you’re not one of us, stay on Instagram and laugh 

Video Graphical Evidence my favourite

None of the videos is in order and frankly, I really don’t care.

Renee abeg if you want me to delete this @ me on a friendly ting, cause I’m even shaking typing this.

giphy-25

This is really the December breakdown, including Ramz who caught a stray bullet I don’t know how, but let my guy secure his bag, one musician that hasn’t bothered anyone and you lot were talking about exposing sex tape if my man is gay, what’s your own? If he’s not that still ain’t our business, you people that create accounts just to draw someone out are dun out ere, it’s a sickness.

giphy-26

*Small little update, but apparently a few men on the TL like their asses nyamed out and licked like a chicken bone, one little bird told me Omar likes it👀 each to their own to be honest, getting shitfaced in their own time👅*

TWITTER SCANDALS

One certain platform has been dropping me TEA, Y’all it was piping hot!

@UKTLTEA ARE THE FUCKING PLUGS✔

I’m only mentioning the TOP 11

  • POOBAE: Leicester Epidemic 
  • £380
  • Fraud Bae (New Money Records) LOOOOOL
  • Oloni triggered by under 25 Twitter with the Black Twitter edition video
  • Rentbae
  • London to Manny
  • Radar Radio 
  • Nunu vs Esther
  • 72 Hour Twitter argument 
  • Visabae
  • Renee Vs Vanessa

I’m finally at the end of my last blog of 2018, I’m not sure what you lot was expecting a draw out? Nah I’m good luv enjoy! 

*UPDATE*

This was never meant to be a draw out thing, but yooo Y’all wanted a Christmas day throwdown hopefully you’ve got it

2018 has been more negative for me than positive but I’m ready to spin that around and leave it all behind, and hopefully, Y’all can spin your negatives around as well , I’ve seen things about me on Twitter of course I have but more time I really don’t care what you nobodies have to say, I ‘ve seen disgusting comments from my so-called ex-friends and I wish y’all the best with that attitude, people always think they know you, no one knows me other than me and I learn things about me every day, besides you spiteful hoes, I’ve had a lot of mental breakdowns but I haven’t had one for nearly a month I’m kinda weirded out by it but also thankful to the most high up.

img_4407

If you follow me, I was going to quit blogging altogether at one stage but it’s one of the only things I’m good at apart from triggering the TL, you see me I’m sticking at it because in January ‘Teekstheblogger’ is three years old, I’m thankful for the hate because it can only make me stronger, the hate I got just because I was writing this was eye-opening got called jobless and all sorts but it was my career that made me late writing this, ok thanks.

I’ve got so many goals to reach next year and I’m reaching them all in Jesus name, after each goal I complete I’ll be poppin borrels, some people like to talk about their goals, me? No thanks, the evil eye is so real and I’ve never seen so much evil eye until this year, but you’ll know when I’ve completed them, just keep an eye out if you’re interested.

img_4408

The biggest thanks I have to give is to the people who continue to support me, gives me ideas on what to write, engages with my polls on social media, the constant pushes I get to continue what I do, I’ve reached statistics I never knew a person like me would reach, literally from the bottom of my heart my thanks and love will always be there and I’ll never forget who’s supported me♦

2019

2019 really smells like money, there’s so much money to be made it’s ridiculous one day I want to be making stupid money but until then I’ll be doing laps for Lizzy until she chases me.

giphy-23

Personally, I think 2019 will be a huge year for us all on here, believe in your dream and work for it.

Culture Shifting

Barrier-Breaking 

Making the impossible possible

We going harder next year!

The Creatives Industry

 

aaeaaqaaaaaaaaqhaaaajgziyje1mjbhlti5otmtndnjzi1howq3ltvlzty2mwi1ywm3ng.png

This is an inspired blog from Twitter of course where else, the creatives industry, especially within the black community, is lacking dramatically if you think otherwise you’re clearly deluded, but if you have an opinion then have it all for freedom of speech and all of that, I have seen some companies thrive and do well, they have the followers, content and most importantly the consistency, but some of you in this industry are bitter.

The creatives going to be included:

THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

YOUTUBERS

(ART)ISTS

GRAPHIC DESIGNERS

SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCERS

FASHION DESIGNERS

MODELS

I’ve been scrolling through Twitter as I do and, just found tweets that correlated heavily and so many people are woke on this situation but what can be done on something that is literally spiralling out of control at a rapid rate.

The creative sector currently employs 3 million people, the number of jobs in creative arts and design rose by 5 % in 2016 and the growth of the sector is expected to carry on rising.

THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

“The scene is so fake.” @Jamzldnkmt

The music scene has so much potential within the realm of possibilities, however, there are too many people who don’t know what category they belong to at all, it is starting to look like a travesty.

Grime is getting mixed up with drill, singers are hopping into the drill scene, Afrobeats and Bashment are clashing continuously, some people won’t collaborate at all, the females within the scene it’s too small, it’s a shambles.

We have people coming on the scene taking the mick, like the You tuber Vanbanter, some people really have gassed him up for what reason, you’re giving attention to people that don’t need it yet there’s a rapper/singer out there looking for the same attention but their not getting it.

We as a collective need to stop shouting ‘We need to get this person signed’ please we cannot come like that American guy @IamAkademiks he’s made the likes of ‘boonk’ famous, he entertains all these dumb people for retweets and likes, this stupidness cannot come and land itself in the UK.

The way some people overhype their friends in this industry is ludicrous, especially when the song is wham. Some music that gets put out it’s like some of you are deaf, the beats are first class until some of you spit over the beat or even sing and it just ruins the whole aura.

I’ve personally been sent songs to review and I honestly enjoy doing it and giving my opinion and feedback where needed, please if your looking for your song to be reviewed get someone out of your circle to do so, because lies can really take shit music far, also when advice is given don’t get defensive because the music industry is far from a walk in the park, it can be a dream come true or a nightmare about to begin.

” The lack of professionalism shown by UK musicians is genuinely baffling” @Or_cle

“From when some of them can’t take criticism, no way they are going to be professional”  @StevenChap

Personally I think the UK creatives industry is lacking professionalism, you’ll make a comment about someone’s music and the way they’ll come for you like nobody’s business it is insane, the music is for the people, doesn’t matter what audience but your projecting towards us, so if your music is shit we should be able to project our voices without constant issues, I’ve made comments about people’s music and even though I can’t sing/ rap whatever, I can filter between worthy and unworthy music, I’ve seen musicians personally search for people’s @’s on Twitter to look for comments, honestly it’s too sad, either do your thing and accept the good and bad comments and improve or move from the scene and give someone else a chance, there’s enough space for everyone in the scene but it’s how you get noticed.

Ramz- Barking, I admit from the start I didn’t like this song only because to me the lyrics actually made no logical sense to me ” I might link my ting from Barking 7am in the morning” can’t lie that bar spun me into another dimension, who’s linking who at 7am? Not even PM a whole AM, but I started hearing this tune daily, then hourly I added it to one of my YouTube playlists and that was it for me, it’s so catchy like ‘Addison Lee’ or ‘Man’s not hot’ I feel like it’s very similar to Addison Lee well the video scene, but either than that Ramz is taking the UK charts by storm, the highest charting rap in the UK in 3 years, if that’s not an accomplishment then I don’t know what is, the hate I’ve seen Ramz receive though it’s actually horrible fair enough your allowed to have your opinion but you lot are deep, every bit of hate he’s received he’s bounced back he even apologised to someone because they said his song was shit, he continued to say that he can only do better and improve.

Ramz is only 20, from South London honestly you people always want people from ends to blow but you won’t even give this artist a time of day, South London is on the map again, you people hating did the exact same thing with Not3s & Michael Dapaah honestly give it a rest.

Stop dividing our race and support your black brothers & sisters.

Real Recognise Real”

On the week beginning 08/01/18 I decided to collect some information, here are my results:

Personally, I think it’s lacking both, some people are really professional and some people really need a tutorial on how to come correct.

Creativity is lacking a lot, we have people spitting bars about hood life when they live a good quiet life.

Recently there was a dispute on the TL between Dimzy and his self because I’m pretty sure Michael Dapaah didn’t do anything purposely wrong.

For anyone that didn’t quite understand what was going on here is what I got out of it so ‘Man’s not hot’ went viral over 177 million hits on YouTube, Mr Dapaah has flown around the world performing his new hit, now where it got sticky is 67 said that Mr Dapaah should’ve given them more exposure as it was their beat which went with their song ‘Let’s lurk’ which was released a year ago and received 12 million hits, but Twitter being Twitter people clearly knew where the beat originally came from and it was 86, not being funny but I didn’t see 86 complain, I would’ve bought royalties to the beat, but Michael Dapaah really grabbed his opportunity and I’m mad happy for him.

No losses just lessons” ~ @23Unofficial

 

IMG_8456IMG_8444

Within the black community with females I’m not seeing a lot in the industry, I really think it’s harder for black females to break out, always have to look a certain way, certain sound, honestly it’s easier for males.

There are so many black females that deserve exposure, so I’ll list a few of my favourites:

@Aprilmusic ‘Turn away’

@RebeccaWinter_x ‘Dance with me’

@Nallie_SheTrap ‘Which gyal man’

@DeliciaEmusic ‘Your mine’

@Bleuautumn New Single ‘Good girl’ behind the scenes footage

@MissLottieJade – ‘Oh well’

 

21/01/18 I conducted more questions on Twitter, I swear I was meant to ask five questions but honestly I saw people answering them so I was like to myself “Yo this is fun lets just carry it on”forty-nine questions later I rounded it up and told everyone I was tired, I was not tired but honestly I got some spectacular results, I’ll list a few of the questions down below along with responses.

Who’s your favourite artist and why?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Who’s the hardest drill artist out there?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

K-Trap, Headie One was definitely winning.

Skengdo X AM & Loski, these three were very close behind.

 

Who’s the hardest rapper out there?

Which artists do you think will blow this year? (UK) 

What are the negatives & positives of the music industry?

Is drill a bad influence on the younger generation?

IMG_8821IMG_8811

As I know a few of you won’t have twitter here’s a link to the full question thread ‘Creatives Thread’

Take a look around you, different views on the same topic shared daily.

I listen to Soundcloud a lot, it’s the point when I get bored of Apple Music, and the artists from Soundcloud that I want on Apple Music just aren’t there, so I have to swap! However Soundcloud has the mixes I want to hear or just different rappers or singers, I’ve discovered a lot of people through there and there’s honestly so many people that deserve exposure or a few minutes out of someone’s day to help them blow, so I’ll list a few of mine.

Wisdom – Addicted 

Dok- Stressin me

Bruvahood – Certain man

Teks Sinatra – Letter to my unborn 

Ratlin- More money, more problems 

Dinero- crush it 

Mischief- Uckerz Badderz 

Sketch- Nights in the trap

Dolo brassi- Round here

Tisrome- Nigga like me 

100KAY- Class A

YOUTUBERS

YouTubers are literally the second worst in my category, I’ve seen that some of them literally converse with the same people, videos with the same people and when a new person jumps on the scene and asks for simple advice a majority of them are just shut down, everyone wants to ‘win’ so badly but won’t help each other prosper, this behaviour is very foul. Personally, I’ve wanted to join YouTube for time but how the scene is at the moment I might just have to take a seat until people start to come correct, the only people that can change it is us, not just creatives but everyone.

 

We’ve had the likes of Oloni ( Award-winning sex & relationships blogger) try and help pave the way for new YouTubers, on the 17/01/18 @Oloni created a thread prompting new YouTubers to share their links, the tweet itself gained over 2000+ replies and it helped a lot of people gain subscribers.

IMG_8924

 

Personally, I thought this was an incredible idea, so many people got involved even people I followed who I never knew had YouTube tagged themselves in and shared.

“This really isn’t my market but 2018 black British YouTubers, please start collaborating more with each other, not this cliquey thing, bring each other up and support each other and get your coins, lastly be genuine about it too, don’t try work with someone to get your clout up.” @Ghostbanks ( Sauce Ctrl)

This is so correct to me, Ghost Banks is a creative himself and even sees the industry itself for what it really is, this whole clique nonsense needs to get cancelled, redirected and teleported back to 2017.

From @Ghostbanks, @ProdbyMk & @shotbykaiz they’ve all come together to create:  “Wave Like Me”

                                                       Here’s a small snippet, Full video on YouTube

 Wave Like Me

Video Vixens you’re up next, you vixens can stay in the YouTube category because some of you are either front and centre of just in the background making some sort of movement, some of you vixens make me laugh, the music videos I’ve watched and seen some of these girls in with no purpose to be there just make me scream.

The one music video I’ve watched for me to gather an opinion is ‘Sun goes down’ by Belly Squad X Section Boyz if you haven’t then please click the link and watch the girls, to me the girls look like they actually don’t want to be there at all, they’re all bopping to different beats, it’s actually a mess, however I have nothing against these girls clearly because I don’t know them, however the song is levels.

 

21/01/18 Regarding my results on video vixens with the ‘Sun goes down’ visuals I found two people who had more of the same opinion as me.

What music video do you think has the most useless video vixens?

 

(ART)ISTS

The art I’ve seen on my timeline over the past few years I’m honestly amazed, I could never draw as a kid let alone in art class at school, my stickmen looked like they were on crack! Being an artist is a real talent, the work, hours, reaching standards, getting noticed looks like a lot of work but must be so rewarding sharing your work with the world.

There are only a five people that consistently catch my eye, so if I was you check them out:

GRAPHIC DESIGNERS

One word

Talented.

I can’t even draw on paint, I have no patience and to do this I know you have to have a lot of that.

There are only two graphic designers I actually really like or pay attention too and will defiantly be using their services in the coming months.

Joe (@Unfamiliarjoe) Owner of (www.thefilterplug.com)

The one thing filter plug is clearly known for is snapchat filters, you’re probably thinking but you can get filters from snapchat.

If you are thinking that yes you’re correct but I’m sorry if you buy your filters from snapchat you’re very mad.

First of all snapchat filters from snapchat are boring and basic looking, I tested out the service for myself and let me tell you never again, I compared areas and the pricing goes up depending on your geographical area, imagine paying more for a service because you live in London or less because you live in the countryside, sorry but I don’t think so.

The same snapchat that wanted to charge us for certain filters or that one where it would cost 79p for a replay a REPLAY, come say I miss my a snap by accident and I have to pay to see it again, I certainly cannot come and kill myself, your probably thinking but 79p isn’t a lot of money, the way I miss people’s snaps by skipping them when they get sent to me I’d be spending £10 in one sitting.

Why buy Geo – filters from snap chat when you can go to ( The filter plug) get one specially made for any occasion and they’re all unique.

SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCERS

19/01/18 Today I read a news article regarding Elle Darby a social media influencer, she focuses mostly on fitness, lifestyle, travel & beauty. Elle Darby sent an email to a luxury hotel in Dublin requesting a 5 night free stay in exchange for exposure, the hotel turned around and declined this request, the hotel owner Paul Stenson released the email and rubbed out the influencers name but it wasn’t done properly, you could slyly see her second name, once people recognised who it was Elle received a substantial amount of backlash from the public.

 

Images from ( @d_alesheaMUA)

My personal opinion of all of this, I’m livid and the news article also gave me brain damage for a few hours, this girl is absolutely insane, so Elle Darby thought because she is a social media influencer she could get a free stay in exchange for some poxy exposure, the hotel is luxury and she offered exposure, some of you social media influencers think your the dog’s bollocks, couple thousand followers and requesting free shit, look at the economy and you want to be asking for FREE stuff.

Half of you buy your followers for what reason I will never work out, saying you have a business through your following count but baby please who are you promoting too if half of them are fake/ghost?

The entitlement you ‘social media influencers’ think your worthy of is ridiculous, don’t forget you’re normal people as well, wouldn’t catch me emailing brands asking for collaborations it would have to be the other way round.

Moving on slightly some of you ‘social media influencers’ who ask for people to pay for promotions, fair enough everyone makes’s their money in various ways, but it’s you lot that someone will pay you and then you say you’ll promote and you don’t do it are you sick? And please some of you aren’t slick people can defiantly tell the difference between paid and genuine promotion, paid you lot don’t put in any effort, this singing/rapping venture whatever some people are into, is actually their grind and for it not to be promoted properly while it’s been paid for, I’d really fight someone.

I’ve seen someone with 300k followers promote a song and it got a marga 20 likes & 30 retweets, I was so confused.

I first joined Twitter seven years ago, honestly back in the day I had every social media platform there was, I wanted to be in with the times and didn’t want to be left behind, at the start I did not understand twitter at all, likes, retweets, DM ( I didn’t know what ‘DM’ stood for, I left twitter and came back in 2012 when Twitter was in it’s prime, honestly all my tweets from when I first joined are still around, I tweeted the stupidest shit ever, however I learnt for myself how to work twitter, I gained followers and continued that growth, I really learnt what a simple retweet could do I was so astonished, I’ve made friendships, business contacts all through just socialising, honestly I would’ve never started a blog if my followers weren’t up but all my followers are authentic, and if you deem yourself to be a ‘social media influencer’ yours should be too can’t be selling dreams.

Hello…hi, this tweet honestly made me scream with laughter because it’s so true, some of you slap your logo on a cheap product and sell it for triple the price, I’m sorry I’ll happily shop from the white man, people are honestly creating logo’s and slapping them here, there and everywhere they want to call themselves a fashion designer/graphic designer, sorry but it doesn’t work like that at all, it’s actually very cheeky.

I’ve seen people personally work consistently on a craft day in day out, fashion designers are perfectionists, imagine throwing a design away because there’s something just not right but you can’t figure out what.

Perfect your craft and graft effortlessly till you know it’s something you want to see someone styling out.

I’ve only seen a few black clothing lines I’d buy off and they are:

EL Velvet

Grind shine LDN

Gone Club

 

MODELS

“Beautiful” “Hold that pose” “Work the camera” “Ok now I want you to take off your clothes” “Sorry but you’re not tall enough for the runway, maybe commercial” “You’re too big to model, slim down maybe” “This is your career” “Do this shoot, then you can have fun”

Any of these sayings sound familiar to you?

I’ve been to a few shoots myself, some of them were fun, some not so much, the not so fun ones where you had to do outfit changes in minutes, going to and from hair and makeup, back on the set, honestly it’s tiring I’ve had to give it a rest.

The modelling industry, one of the hardest industries to get into, having to look a certain way, specific heights, you have to have the LOOK! I don’t know what the ‘look’ is but I guess agencies know what they are looking for and what the new in thing is!

Personally from looking at the modelling industry a few years ago to now, it’s come a long way, plus size models did not exist, it was a size 4-8 or nothing, I found that a bit absurd I really use to think who could fit into a size 4, well it’s me I used to be able to, let me repeat USED to, not anymore now I’m a mere size 6-8, I used to hate being so small everyday “Your anorexic”  more time it was just a high metabolism that I had/have no control over, but a few years later I’m overly thankful as I can eat whatever I want without worrying about gaining weight.

In addition to the modelling industry it’s improving dramatically I never thought I would see change, but its happening the first plus-sized model was Emme Aronson, Emme is a body positive supermodel that has paved the way for the woman to know that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.

Nevertheless, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I want to dedicate this part of my blog to Harry Uzoka.

Our black brother is no longer with us and he never deserved what happened to him.

Jehovah Jireh, there is none like you. Everyday we want to praise & worship your glorious name. Today we weep at the death of our friends, family, or loved ones, but blessed father, we can rest assured knowing we can find comfort and peace within you, in the midst of our tears & our grief. Lord, we shout your praises, because you have turned our mourning into dancing.” 

Peace go with you.

God’s quiet within the noise

God’s hope within the uncertainty

God’s rest with the toil

God’s presence within your soul

Peace go with you”

May his soul rest in perfect peace.

 

There is a lot of platforms that are for sure getting the scene seen more, and they’re honestly my favourites pages, which are:

Make sure to follow them up!

At long last I have come to the end of writing out this blog, I’ve really enjoyed writing this, hopefully, I have opened a few eyes on what is really going on in the creatives industry too many people get thrown under the bus and honestly it needs to stop.

People need to learn to come together and support each other I’ve screamed about support in previous blogs and this will be the last one (I’m probably lying, don’t mind me) I’ll be mentioning it in, it’s ridiculous what I’ve been seeing lately, support your brothers and sisters we are all striving for the top and to be successful.

Please continue to support each other there is enough space at the top for everyone, there’s no reason to knock someone’s grind, opinions are allowed but be careful how you go about it.

Real rap needs to come back onto the scene. Real hood storytellers none of this fake shit.

We need to see more versatility, flows, melodies, lyricism, we need deliverance.

We need experimental music, so far we have Afro- trap, Afro beats, we need more, being different is what the scene needs. UK music will and shall always prosper.

We need fresh faces. We need to give fresh talent a chance.

Anyone in the creatives section needs a strong team behind them binding them together.

We can’t do this shit on our own, support is vital.

But it will only prosper if we allow it too, there’s too much negativity in each and every sector, it can only move forward if we accept it.

I actually enjoyed doing the question thread, first off I really needed those responses and I loved seeing everyone come together with their opinions everything was so positive as in there was no arguments started there was minor debates and just agreements, that’s what I like to see.

I’ve tried to feature as many people as I could within this blog, all @’s our included I’m not a person where I’ll drop names out unlike some.

2018, we are out here chasing dreams, aspire to inspire before we expire” ~Teeks

Thank you to everyone who continues to support I really appreciate it.
See you in my next one.
