The End of 2015

It is the end of an era. The end of a 365 day stretch of memories and things worth remembering for a lifetime. In 2015, there sure is a lot to admire and cherish and also some to forget and forgive. This year for me was definitely a learning curve in which I learnt a lot about myself and the people I hold closest to my heart. I found true friends and lost what used to matter to me in 2014. That is completely fine and part of life and was definitely a good thing.
However, there were many firsts for me throughout the year. My first convention, first visits to some cities and first serious like. It was a great year (well..) but I know that next year will prove to be harder and better because becoming one year older always brings a challenge. I am grateful for everything that happened this year and to commemorate this whirlwind of a year I have made a little video with clips from the January to December.

Here it is:

On to 2016, I have many plans for this year and I find it appropriate to discuss these just after the video because why not? Firstly, I want to make more videos because looking back at these videos was pretty fun and made me extremely happy. Secondly, I shall focus on my career and what I want to do. But most of all I don't want to force a change, I want to naturally be happy with what I am doing and everything that I am (woah deep). This is my ultimate goal. I have exciting plans and I want to achieve so much more than I have this year but I will never forget what 2015 has given to me. 
But for now; Farewell to the old and roll on to the new!

Over and out,

An Extraordinary Merry Christmas

Tis the season of Christmas and the time to think about what the new year is going to bring. But first, let us enjoy this special day with the people we love. I hope all of you get the chance to do so. This Christmas, I will be spending it away from home with my extended family. However, towards the end of term I had the best time with friends at our - now annual - Christmas gathering. It's a time where I and many other can forget about our serious lifes, unwind and truly be happy.

Lets ignore my face in the middle, I am covered in chocolate. Don't ask. My friends are beautifuler. Thats a word. Shh.
Christmas, being one of my favourite holidays, wouldn't feel right if I left this blog empty throughout the season so without further a do:

To all my readers,

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I wish you all the best over the holidays and the coming year of 2016.

Liebster Award - 2nd Part of the tags I neglected {The Dames Life}

Last week, I answered 20 questions that would get you to know me better and this is the second part to the tags that I neglected for a full year (whoops). Here goes the Liebster award questions:

1. Why do you blog and how long have you been blogging for?
I blog for some sort of release of ideas and just to improve my, oh so comedic, writing. I also want a small online diary to look back on in a few years time. Another reason is to share my content and love for film, which I am yet to explore. As for the second part of this question, I have had this blog since 2012? I think I had a few other blogs since 2007 and my Tumblr is about 8 years of age. Basically, it has been a while.
2. When do you blog?
I blog usually when I am bored or have a wave of inspiration. I have loads of drafts so I should finish those. However recently I have tried to blog once a week on a Friday (again only recently and many drafts). I need to try more. 
3. What's your favourite TV series/movie and why?
So I will answer the TV show one as I answered the movie one in the last post. Sherlock is my all time favourite TV show as I have fallen in love with it and its actors since it was aired in 2010. Its been 5 years of waiting for more episodes than the 3 seasons and 9 and a bit episodes we have. I love it because it is a genius modern twist on a detective that is part of literary and London history. It is a great way to bring todays generation into loving a classic. Woah, I am super passionate!
4. Who is your favourite actress/actor and why?
Again, I answered this in the previous tag and as to why I love Benedict Cumberbatch here is a clear link to my post that explains it all. 
5. If you could describe yourself in one sentence, what would it be?
"A weirdly quirky woman on the rise to something great but first, play next episode"
I am proud of this sentence unless you want the Sherlock obsessed version?
6. If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
Funny because I had this question asked to me at a job interview and I said Alpaca because they have weird faces and are quite cute. Great answer, I am sticking with it. Actually, thinking about it I just saw a picture of an otter so I am changing my mind. I like huddling with others and having a little snuggle as I drift off to sleep. Thats what otters do right? Perfect.
7. How do you spend your free time?
Answered in previous post, if you really want to know so bad.
8. Tell me one thing that you love.
Family. This includes my friends because I see them as my extended brothers and sisters. Basically I am super grateful for a thing called love (to an extent). 
9. Tell me one thing that you hate.
Liars. Nothing worse than someone who can lie right in your face and have no guilt what so ever. It can ruin the best of people.
10. If you had the option to live forever, would you choose it? Why?
I like the deadline this life has because then I am not as lazy as I presume I would be if I had immortality. I want to know that sometimes this will come to an end and I want to do the best I can so that I can not regret anything. If I lived forever all the people I love would have died and I would hater this constant heartbreak I would go through. I like it just the way it is, thanks. 
11. Do you like Harry Potter?
Yes, yes and YES! Obsessed and in love. (See favourite fictional book in previous post) The films are also the most magical ones. 

Thank you for reading this post and the previous one and getting to know me better! Looking forward to writing more reviews and film things in the coming weeks so stay tuned :)

20 Things You May Not Know About Me {The Dames Life}

Oh my word! Third post this week? I am on fire!!! Be expecting this rise in posts because I have finally found my stride *insert nail painting emoji, even though I don't paint my nails*. Anyway...

A huge while back my best friend, Tanya (Keep Turning Pages) nominated me for the Liebster Award and also tagged me in the '20 Things You May Not Know About Me' Tag and I figured better late than never. This week I will release the first half and in less than a week I will release the Liebster Award answers as not to overwhelm you with so many facts about me. So, here goes:

20 things You May Not Know About Me:
1. How tall are you?
I am 174cm tall. Quite tall for a woman but it just means I reach for higher things. Ayyyyyye (I really think I'm funny).
2. Do you have a hidden talent?
I don't think I do. Honestly it is still hidden if I do have one. Maybe my hidden talent is the most consecutive days of not leaving the house? Or even having watched the only 9 and a bit episodes of Sherlock the most?
3. What's your biggest blog related pet peeve?
What really grinds my gears is when people have spelling mistakes. Ok, I probably have those too but hear me out, I generally like to rush through my posts. I annoy myself too. Also when peoples layouts are not well structured and do not reflect the words they write. Both layout and posts should go hand in hand. People who write well and have a bad layout and design need to fix up.
4. What's your biggest non blog related pet peeve?
Chewing gum. Everything about it. It makes me ill, I hate the smell and I hate those who chew it in my face. Even typing the word out made me puke on the inside. Also people touching me with their bare feet. I get all hot and enraged thinking about it.
5. What's your favourite song?
Right now, I would have to say "One for the Road" by Dodie Clark, who is a YouTuber and brilliant singer and I had the honour of meeting her and seeing her perform this year just before it was released with this title. It was know as "F*** You Ex-Boyfriend" before hand. Another song that I love is also by a YouTuber called Bry and the song is "Your Life Over Mine". They are both different sides of love and I just love the tune and lyrics. 
However my all time favourite would have to be "Can't Help Falling In Love" by the one and only Elvis Presley. It is a classic and just so magical. 
6. What's your favourite Etsy shop that isn't yours?
"flirtyduets" was a good favourite of mine because Klaine. That's all. 
Edit: It is now a clothing store that contains minimal Klaine but has loads of fandom jewellery.
7. What's your favourite way to spend your free time when you're alone?
Writing, singing (not very well), dancing, hula-hooping, you name it! Also all the sleep. Netflix tops all of them though.
8. What's your favourite junk food?
That coffee cake tho or fries. All the salty fries.
9. Do you have pets? If so what kind and what are their names?
I have one tabby cat called Benvolio. Yes, the love for Romeo's cousin was real. My cat is a loveable little shit though and I miss him loads when I am at University. 
10. What are your favourite fiction and non-fiction books?
Favourite Fiction: "Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone" by J.K Rowling. I know, its a children's book but it is the start of a magical adventure that lasted nearly all of my life, up to now. It was a fabulous beginning to a wonderful franchise that produced many more wonderful books that I love dearly.
Favourite Non-fiction: "All I Know Now" by Carrie Hope Fletcher. It is just a guide book to life and the troubles throughout. Although I am reading "How to be a Woman" by Caitlin Moran and I am enjoying it so much so far.
11. What's your favourite beauty product?
My favourite beauty product as far as skincare goes is my tea tree and charcoal face scrub made by Boots. It has saved my teenage skin and has given me a smooth surface. Make-up wise is my Smoky Purple Matte Lipstick by MAC because it is the most daring colour I have worn. Also Matte lipsticks last so much longer and look 100x better, in my opinion. What do I know? I am no beauty guru.
12. When were you last embarrassed?
Ahahahaha "I like your face despite your nose". If you know, you know. I cried and was bright red for a whole day. 
13. If you could drink one beverage for the rest of your life, besides water, what would it be?
The Green Tea, Mint and Lime thing from Costa is absolutely my favourite cold drink but I guess it would be much better to choose a warmer drink so I choose the Twining's Chamomile and Spiced Apple Tea. I love tea. 
14. What's your favourite movie?
This is a tough one. As a film student, it can be a very hard decision between a top few movies that you love. As of now it rests between Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Submarine and The Suicide Room (Polish film). All of these are great, despite their differences and complete opposite genres. However, my old favourite that I was committed to was Moulin Rouge, I watched it daily and know all the words. 
15. What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
I was a cross between a loner and a nerd. Not the type of really smart nerd but the useless Sherlock or Film facts nerd. I loved Media Studies so much that I was known for it. As for loner, maybe in my secondary school but not as much in sixth form. I was mainly considered very weird and that's awesome. 
16. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I wouldn't know yet because I haven't been to many places around the world. As for some place I've been to then home which to me is London. I have everything here and I wouldn't have it any other way. Somewhere new then maybe New York or California, to live my American Dream and pursue my career in film. 
17. PC or Mac?
Mac. Even though I only acquired one in February, I have had such an ease using one in my sixth form whilst editing and it works hand in hand with my phone. It is also a very pretty and attractive piece of machinery.  Although on the PC I can play the Sims.
18. Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, BF/GF?
From a crush is possibly him coming over at 2am and staying until 6am, I helped him with some work. We kissed. It was cute. Why am I telling my blog this? Ah well.
19. Favourite celebrity? 
Everyone knows the answer to this. Benedict Cumberbatch, for more information check one of my previous posts on his engagement to Sophie Hunter or click here for my tumblr. (Warning: It may look a tad too much Cumberbatch but hey ho)
20. What blogger do you secretly want to be bestfriends with?
Well, I wish Carrie Hope Fletcher ( would be my best friend, obviously. Her posts are really relatable and I think we would get along with all our thoughts and deep meaningful conversations. Ah, that would be a magical friendship. A Hopeful for life! Also HER BOOK IS LIFE ITSELF! (clears throat and calms down, see favourite books question)

This is all for now so see you next week for the Liebster Award questions :) 

P.S. Sorry Tanya <3

Blue Sushi: A Review of Bertie Gilbert and Sammy Paul's newest short


IT IS FINALLY OUT! Blue Sushi, a Sammy Paul and Bertie Gilbert starring Poppy Harold, Bertie Gilbert, Andrea Valls, Shaun Cowlishaw and Khyan Mansley follows the coming out of a lead singer of Blue Sushi as a transgender man, to her band mates, manager and the world. It shows the effects of acceptance and the hardship of hate. It also explores the effect and pressure of the fame that surrounds him after coming out.
Ok, I have waited since July and the start of the production for this to come out and it is finally here. Before I start the review I want to just do a quick outline of my experience as an extra in the gig scene. Yes, I had the opportunity to join about 400 London-based YouTube fans in Islington's 02 Academy to attend a free gig (courtesy of Dodie Clark) and also be part of this awesome project.
Being a fan of the short films I have seen made by Bertie Gilbert and Sammy Paul, both together and seperately, I wanted to be part of one and this was the perfect opportunity. After falling madly in love with the style and story of "Rocks that Bleed" (2015) by the same directors, I knew that "Blue Sushi" would be one to look forward too.
Having arrived at the shoot half and hour early, I got to queue outside and talk to a few other fans and young people. Moving forward in this queue that stretched quite far back, I spotted Jack Howard, half of comedy duo Jack and Dean and film maker, just behind the barriers and I got to say hi and take a selfie. Although I wanted to express my gratitude for his work and content on YouTube all I got out was "I love your videos". Great. I am so good at interaction, aren't I? 

Jack Howard takes good selfies. Fact. Also star of "Rocks that Bleed"
Thought I should just mention that, anyway on with the story.
All of us gathered inside and formed a decent crowd and got instructions from Sammy on what to do in each shot, such as shouting “Blue Sushi” repeatedly before the band ran on stage and played the song that, by the end of the day, was stuck in my head for a good week or so. I won't stay down, I'll stick to the floor, if I don't mOVE MYSELF RIGHT NOOOOW NO NO NOOO, cough. (Thank you, Daniel Dobbs for this wonderfully catchy song.) Obviously, I was excited to see if I am in any of the shots or not and I am glad to say I am! Basically a little shot of me when the camera is going through the crowd, clapping like a seal and the lovely back of my head. I am happy. 
The two little screen caps of me, my acting career is reaching new heights.

Throughout this shoot we had a few breaks where Dodie Clark performed and so did Jack Howard. This whole ordeal lasted 4 hours and it was all very tiring but really fun and rewarding. Afterwards we got to meet the cast and crew of this production so here are a few pictures I took during this shoot. It was a pleasure meeting people who share the same passions. I wish I took more photos but my stupid battery on my phone failed miserably. However here is a little collage:
My face wasn't necessary here. Clockwise from top left including me in each photo: Dodie Clark, Bertie Gilbert, Shaun Cowlishaw, Andrea Valls and Sammy Paul. Centre: Dodie Clark and Jack Howard performing 'Four Five Seconds'
Now on to the verdict, I loved it. Honestly the whole thing had so many crisp and fresh shots and just what I wanted and expected it to be. No pressure, by the way. Although a lot of YouTube films are made so beautiful thanks to Ciaran O'Brien's director of photography skills but I was surprised to see Edgar Dubrovskiy as the D.O.P here and it was amazing (sorry Ciaran). Having looked at his website, I am extremely impressed by his wide range of work and the examples of work he provides. A good cinematographer can make the film look amazing but what about the other factors such as lighting, editing and acting? 
One of my favourite things about making a film is lighting and the immense importance of it. People don't realise that lighting is ever so important and it can change the whole film, give it an ominous glow or even the brightest joy. I like the low-key lighting look in films and I think this nailed it. The red glow on stage looked so much better on screen than in person and it gave such a nice effect. Although there aren't many scenes that are in full natural light (another favourite), I am still quite in favour of the indoor 'rock n' roll' feel I get through the lighting and it makes it a lot more real for me as a viewer. Some of it can be quite distracting but I guess, this is the effect that the editors (Bertie Gilbert and Sammy Paul) were going to achieve. 
Editing wise, it takes real skill and bravery to have these emotional long takes and long dialogue scenes and not try to make them shorter in the cutting room (cool words). I applaud this, although I had a little trouble with some long dialogues as I tend to zone out but some of Khyan Mansley's lines were hilarious, but then again my humour is subject to people saying funny things with straight faces. Khyan is a very calm and oblivious to having said anything wrong and just because of his acting style in his own videos, he played this character of a seemingly emotionless manager pretty naturalistically. 
Having seen most of these actors in previous films such as both Andrea Valls and Shaun Cowlishaw were in Hazel Hayes' latest film, Septem and that film gave me all sorts of chills, good chills. So, after seeing them in this shoot I was ecstatic to see them back on another YouTube short film and I was happy to tell them so (more embarrassing encounters of Anne-Marie Dames). Poppy Harold, was an amazing character that took the role on and gave such a realistic touch to it. I have seen their video 'genderology' before the film was released and it clicked when I was watching it. I am glad that auditions happened to find the lead character for this film because if not we wouldn't have such a great lead for this wonderful story. As always, Bertie Gilbert's role in each of his shorts is important and usually is a catalyst for some of the action that happens. It was nice to see him take on a fellow accepting band member role and it was very believable. 
This leads me on to the story. It is quite an interesting way to portray a tough subject that is a huge deal in 2015 and possibly for the next few years. Rather than showing a fully depressing side of being transexual, we get to see the acceptance, the help that is received and the independence Scarlett (well, their name for now) has in the end. Although, I don't want to spoil anything, I will say that the crowd scene was shocking and still hurt me emotionally even though I knew what was happening. Just watch it ok! AND WHY ANOTHER ENDING LIKE THIS! *clears throat* I am very satisfied that I have been part of this minimally and that I have watched this film and thoroughly loved it.

Overall I give this wonderful short film a rating of:

★★★★ and a half (I can't find a half star, I tried)
It is a must watch due to the topics it explores and just in general the people that worked on it are amazingly talented in their own fields. I recommend seeing a few of the director's previous work and enjoying how much improvement there has been over the year's. The only issue that took away the half was the long dialogue but that is just my personal preferences in film. In conclusion, this is a must see for YouTube watchers and young film makers to explore the styles of short films.

Watch Blue Sushi here!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed my review and see you in my next post :)

First Year and Memories

My first year at University has ended and it feels like yesterday that I blogged about starting sixth form and BAM, here I am talking about how 1/4 of my University life has been fulfilled and completed. It is weird to think that a year ago I was nervous to meet new people and to cope living by myself but now I love spending time at University and being with my flatmates has made me happier. Although I miss family so much, I do love my adopted family (Playboy Mansion, don't ask).

Being on my summer holidays, I have reflected a lot more than I should have on the last year and overall I seem happy with it and I guess what I'm scared of now is change. I am going to be living else where and not on campus where I could wake up 10 minutes before my seminar and still make it with a few minutes to spare (well, at a push). Not to mention that all my friends lived within a 2 minute walk or so and now I have to travel a bit more to see them and plan studies with them. Also, I am living with 3 of my previous flatmates compared to the original 7. It is quite sad as we were all so close but I am sure that we will be fine.

Some of the afore mentioned Playboy Mansion, bunny ears yo. Don't mind the Sainsbury's bag just lying there. 
Some of the best memories I have had in my short life, so far, will have been in this flat and it saddens me that I only got to spend one year there. However, I am looking forward to being the best I can this year. This year counts and I am excited to start a fresh with modules I love and a brand new study technique. Another change that I have made is that I am now secretary of the Glee society on campus and this is exciting. I have always had a small love for Glee and it's awesome that I get to work on a club like this and gain some important experience.

I guess, all that is left to do is start.

If any of my readers want any more information on the course I am doing which is Film, the modules I am taking and/or university life, please let me know as I am planning to do a video on this soon on my Youtube channel. I would also love to write a post on my course and what I have been up to during second year.

Thank you and I will see you in another post :)

A Day at the Sea - 1st August 2015

I have finally uploaded a video so congratulations to me (woot woot). Anyway, this video is about my day trip to Brighton and just a random array of feelings I got there. It got me thinking about all the videos I have left on my camcorder from my trip to Poland last year and even this year, even some videos I filmed in London, maybe I could edit them to this style and make a little series out of it? Well, maybe less of my voice and more editing. However, here is the short letter in style of a video. Do enjoy!

I have a few posts ready to publish so do look out for those as there are some reviews and a few university posts for those going in September :)

Wednesday, 20 May 2015

Woah, who knew. I made it the future, didn't expect that as I am casually having existential crisis after existential crisis at this very moment in time. Also I'm 19. Just thought that would interest you, you can laugh at me now. I think I sound fancy now, what about you? Do you like blogging in a fancy way. If you don't blog then maybe do you just try to write fancy? I write the word fancy a lot.

Anyway, hope all is good now. Maybe you successfully finished University, had your year abroad and had struggles on the way but you made it to the future. I want you to read this when you are 30 and hopefully you are happy now. Right now, I am struggling two weeks before the first and last exams of my university life start whilst listening to All I Want by Kodaline. Last night was the first time you slept happy in quite a while. 2 and a half months, to be precise. Getting over people isn't easy for me and you, I hope it's getting better over time and you have become strong. But I really don't want many more of these shit feelings, please?

I hope you are friends with the people you are friends with 10 years in the past. The usual bestie's, soul mates (aka wife) and the life long university people you have met. I won't name names but you know who they are. I don't want you to forget these people, they made you who you are now and have been there through your struggles and you should be there for theirs. Go thank them now! Well if it's 1am or something don't but you know, do it in the morning. Hang out with them or just remember them with fond memories of school, sixth form and all the times you hung out. Be a bit nostalgic today, you are literally the age your sister is now in my current moment in time. It's weird. Eww.

Who actually got married first? Any children in the friendship group? Remember when people thought you were going to get married first out of the group? Is that true or are you still waiting for Prince Charming or Benedict Cumberbatch's baby (hopefully male)? What did you even name your children? I hope it's still the original choices like Hamish, Noah, Alison and Elisa. Yesterday you told your housemates that you want to be sorted by 30. Job, man, house and children on your mind. Who knows? Maybe you fucked up but that is alright, you are still pretty awesome for surviving. Get your life on track if none of your goals have been realised. Say hi to your husband or boyfriend from past me, literally can't imagine being with someone. And if you don't have anyone to say hi to, don't rush to find love, if true love hasn't come yet then its not the right time. Be patient. You always have, remember waiting 2 years for the guy you liked to give you an answer? (Still hasn't, has he?) And also 2 good long years for Sherlock? Good, now practice that some more. Also has Season 5 come out? I am still waiting for 4. Darn.

How is Mum? Have you spoken to her or have you yet to move out of the house? Magda? Has she settled down and had children, if she hasn't slap her and say sorry. Honestly, I'm waiting now for her to get married already, she is stable in the career section of life and also relationship wise she is perfect so she needs to hurry the hell up. Spend some time with them if you haven't. Also speak to Padre, see whats happening.

Finally, I really hope you are doing film as a job. Seriously, if nothing else has worked out I hope this has. You've worked for this and struggled on the inside as to whether this was a good choice so I hope to high heavens you are happy with what you are doing and that is film. Maybe you've made something and maybe you've won an award, big or small, I am still proud because I think I can say I am struggling with my life decisions right now, so I hope you prove me wrong. Please prove me wrong, otherwise all this was a waste. But I'm sure you are awesome enough to be smart about this. Do what you love and do it well. Also I hope you've met Benedict or seen him. Please you must have, it's been 16 years of loving him. Say hi from past me, don't cry and be calm.

Super final note, stay weird! You are unique soul and I hope you know that. #Yolo. I joke, but really have fun with your future life and love yourself as much as I love the idea of you.

Here is your past face, 19 and no make-up (as always). Write a blog post even if your blog isn't active  and compare our faces, thanks. I hope I have minimal acne scaring and sorted eyebrows (shh positivity).

Over and out from your awkwardly past self,

New Girl: 'Clean Break' Season 4 Finale Review [Spoilers near the end]

The Season Four finale of one of my favourite TV shows aired on Tuesday night and I'm pretty sure I still haven't stopped crying since I've seen it 42 hours ago.
I started watching New Girl when it first came onto my TV screen on E4 (possibly the best TV channel in Britain). However only recently have I religiously watched episode after episode of it in early March of this year, thanks to emotions and bleh (I petition this to be a new official word) which forced me to watch 3 whole seasons in 2 and a half days. Through this I've gotten really attached to the characters, their ups and downs and their quirky personality's. After all of this knowledge that I've acclaimed in my impressive 3 season binge, I have considered myself to be a Nick Miller. Quirky, failed writer, procrastinator and hoarder of rubbish sums me up pretty well. Especially this video which, even though is less that 20 seconds long, I find hilarious for many reasons.

Anyway, onto the review of the latest finale to shine down on us with their presence. A few hours prior to me viewing this episode which I was really pumped for I went onto Facebook, which now I know was a mistake. The Official page for New Girl posted a MASSIVE spoiler just a few hours after the episode aired and everyone in the comments were fuming. I'm not even exaggerating, everyone was mad. I was annoyed and wished I hadn't seen it but one comment did make me chuckle a bit. Someone told the admin of the page to 'put a dollar in the douche bag jar'. If you know anything about the show you would laugh a bit after reading it (silent Anne-Marie nose exhales). 
So having know this spoiler I was ready to be disappointed at the lack of surprise there was but on the contrary, dear readers. I weeped. Ugly sobbed. Single teared, you name it. I felt it all.

Fair warning *clears throat*, SPOILERS WILL START NOW! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Thank you.
That was honestly a roller-coster of emotions that I was not prepared for. Firstly, Coach leaving AGAIN! Come on, because of my binge watching it feels like he just came back and now he's settling in with this beautiful woman and it's all so hard to take. This episode could be relatable to a lot of audiences going through things like saying goodbye and decluttering (I know I certainly am) so I thought this was a realistic representation of what happens in life and how to deal with it. This 'clean break' ideology can be used everywhere and is useful in most situations, even if it is something as perfect as Nick and Jess (sorry, not sorry).
Speaking of the quirky ex-couple, the 'sex mug' brought back many possibilities for them getting back together when one of them put it out on the counter. Would it work out? Do we want to see them back together again? Well, my personal opinion is HELLS YEAH! I would want them to go back together and have a wonderful happy ending. But who knows what will happen in the coming 5th Season, even if Jess will be missing in 4 episodes due to her maternity leave (naww).
Finally, the reason for my ugly sobbing. Schmidt and Cece getting engaged! Oh my, I was not expecting that whatsoever (apart from Facebook spoilers). It was beautiful and I just the love the way they both changed over time. It was like seeing your children grow up, not like I know how that feels. The flashback to the first thing he said to her was adorable and so well put together.
All the storylines, from Winston and Coach, Nick and Jess and most importantly Cece and Schmidt intertwined beautifully and provided a full circle to end the season with. It was satisfyingly awesome.
So overall New Girl has a lot to look forward to in Season 5 and I can't wait and I'm sure it will be worth the wait but for now lets bask in the cuteness that is Schmidty.

Thanks for reading my first review, hopefully I didn't do too badly and didn't ramble. I did but shhh no one has to know.

And again...

I'm sorry. Neglecting this blog maybe isn't the best idea when I love writing here, so I am officially apologising (hopefully for the last time).
Since September I have been attending University and that is possibly the best thing I've ever done to date. The picture below describes the past 7 months for me pretty much perfectly. All nighters, filming and a substitute family (my 7 flatmates).

If you haven't guessed already I do Film Studies and couldn't be happier with my choice. I've gained so much knowledge and experience and thats just in this little time I've been here. I am so in love with what I do it makes me cry, well, not literally. Metaphorical tears of joy.

Me being back is not a sign of yet another betrayal. This time I promise you that I have gotten a few things sorted out for this blog and its future.
First of all I would love to post a few reviews of movies and TV Series I've watched even if they may be late notice. I would also like a post of a day in the life of a Film Student in my University as I am sure it will be insightful to many new and aspiring university students out there.
However, one major thing I would like to use my blog as is a diary of things going on in my life that may be helpful to other people and something's I would like to seek help in myself, form a community almost of troubled teens (nearly adults - oh my, I'm nearly 20). These posts can also help me reflect later on in my life with either nostalgia or embarrassment. Probably the latter.

I've got big plans so stay tuned.

Also thank you to the large response I got for my previous post, I am glad I am not alone. Although a bit dramatic, I'm glad it was liked.
