Battlestar Galatica it is! haha!
She still wants to meet, just can’t tomorrow.
Is she for real? or is she giving me the run around? to be continued…
As I have decided to not put all my energy in to girls and put it in to other more useful things I will be posting things that may help other young designers in their journey to find employment and to improve their skills and techniques. So I will be posting about anything to do with being creative, as well as the odd girl story haha! can’t leave them out now.
So for those that don’t know me, let me tell you a little bit about my journey to where I am now. I graduated a few years ago with a Ba Hons in Graphic Design. After leaving University I did apply for a few jobs but had no luck, plus it didn’t help that my confidence in my work and my abilities was pretty low. So I got a job as a waitress and kitchen assistant in a local cafe for about a year. That place was one of the crazies places I think I will ever work! anyway after doing that for a year and living in a crap house, here’s how bad it was. The radiator in my room was the other one that worked, in winter the house was freezing, so cold in the kitchen that when my sister came to see me she left some beer on the side and it was nice and chilled haha! no need for a fridge. Anyway I decided to move home and live back with my Dad and Step-mum, which after living independently for around six years it was a shock to the system to have to live by someone else’s rules again.
After moving back I got a job at a local pub, joined Junior chambers international where I have had a number of adventures and met some fantastic people, I also learn to drive and if you have been reading my blog you will know I have just got my first car. So what does all this have to do with design? well since being offered a placement a few months ago, I have decided to try and do the design thing again. My confidence in myself is up and I’m more determined than ever to do design in some shape or form.
I will be posting interesting things about design. Good magazines to look at, places to get free fonts, stuff that helps to improve your portfolio, lots of cool useful stuff. Hope it helps in someway 🙂 I also post stuff on my twitter @xandthetitties so feel free to follow me on there.
When I was thinking about starting a blog it was meant to be about dating and talking to women and all the funny stuff that happens along the way only over the last few weeks I’ve only spoken to one girl off and on and you know what I feel better than I did when I use to talk to lots of girls. I have so much free time now! Time that I’m putting in to other things, more useful things.
The last few weeks I have been on a design placement helping to put a book together and I have really enjoyed it, not just designing and coming up with ideas for a section of the book I have been working on but being in a creative environment and working with other like-minded people and working together to get the book finished and helping to create a really great marketing campaign to help launch it once it’s finished. The social side of things is something I have started to get more interested in and having started this blog and setting up a twitter for it I have found lots of people have started to follow me and it feels really cool to know people are interested in what I have to say. I also have a Pintrest and have started putting my art work on it, which you can buy in A4 and A5 if anyone is interested, check out my site jenny storey.atspace.co.uk. Anyway a girl off my placement told me about https://bufferapp.com/ which is a site that helps you to schedule your twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts, so I started it this morning, and I am now on Viralwoot which is for pinterest and people have started to follow me and pin my art work 😀 feels awesome!
I am determined to make a success of this blog and if I can’t find a design job that god damn it I will make my own work!
My step sister is getting married soon and she asked me to design a hundred booklets for the service along with name cards for the dinner. I really enjoyed designing the booklet and putting it together and it’s quite relaxing folding a hundred pieces of paper haha! I did the place cards this evening, I hand did fifteen in a Calligraphy style font and I really enjoyed putting them together and it’s a root I am genuinely thinking about going down, so if your thinking of getting married and you need some stuff designed give me a shout yeah! and in all this time I have not been bothered about talking to girls once!
Oh my days what has happened to me? I guess I have found something I enjoy doing more than talking to girls, and that is making something that other people can learn and enjoy too and more importantly something that makes me happy. I can honestly say that for the first time in months I am happy. I just hope that my blogs don’t suddenly become boring! don’t worry I’m not off girls, just taking a little break. There will be more funny stories even if I have to hunt a few down just so i have something to write about, a bit like that film How to lose a guy in 10 days! but for now I’m happy to put my time to better use. Though I still would like a really cool job! But hey one step at a time eh?

What are people looking for these days? I’m tired, I’m just tired of dating! I love girls but half only want one thing and the other half don’t know what they want! If I had a pound for every girl I have met that say after one date, I’m not sure I know what I want or I’m not sure this is what I’m looking for I could buy at least a nice car! So many times I put myself out there to be rejected time after time, I’m surprised I’ve not had a break down by now. I’m tired, AT 26 I’M BLOODY TIRED OF DATING!
So many girls ask me ‘how are you single?’ and well its cause your all crazy, dumb bitches who can’t see a good thing when its standing right in front of you. I mean how can you really know if you like someone after a first date? At least have a second one? Most people are nervous and not quite themselves on a first date. You don’t know what might upset the other, what they find funny, basically you don’t know each other so give it a second chance to find out about each other before you decided their not for you.
Recently I went out on a date and had a lovely time, after taking some advice from my magazine about having fun and enjoying the day and not thinking too much about what happens after. So I enjoyed my evening and I felt it went well and hoped for a second, only as usual the next day the girls is like, I had fun but don’t want to take it any further. Well sorry love I’m only asking for a second date, not your hand in marriage! I mean excuse me if I sounds stupid but, if she had fun and a good time why wouldn’t she want to meet me again?? I’m confused. Its not like we had an awkward parting at the end of the date either, she could have be like ‘ I have to get my bus nice to meet you’ before disappearing forever but she didn’t instead she walked me to my train because she wanted to make sure I got home safe and even said she might wait till it pulls away and run at the side of it waving me off haha! I mean we sat in the park and I had my arm round her, she could have moved to suggest she didn’t like it but she didn’t. I read the situation and felt it was okay for me to do it other wise I wouldn’t have done it. To be honest though, I knew it was coming and after what she told me her friend told her before our date ‘ You didn’t know her last week and you might not next week, no biggie’ and I guess their right.Another date done with, another girl’s loss. No biggie!
what do I have to do to get a second date around here? Seriously anyone want to come out on a couple of dates with a lovely. Funny. Cute girl?? Anyone? Anyone at all??
After months of dating and not getting anywhere I decided to start a blog about it as I thought I might as well entertain a few more people other than my friends with my jaunts. My friends seem to find my stories about my dates funny and often they are unable to keep up with who I’m going on a date with that week. Yes I have been on a number of dates in the last few months and I do talk to a lot of women but I can’t help it, I’m just too damn friendly for my own good sometimes! Anyway over the last few months I can pretty much sum up the type of girls I have come in to contact with, they are as follows:
They think I’m so sweet, genuine and lovely to the point they only see me as a friend.
I have been on dates with a few girls who seem quite keen on me only to have my hopes dashed when they spring the friend word on me. Which really means, I don’t like you don’t contact me again! I would honestly prefer it if they just didn’t text me after a date rather than use the friend word. I have however made a number of friends off dating sites I’m starting to thinking it might just be a lesbian thing!
They think I’m sexy, gorgeous and have a beautiful smile and just want to have sex with me.
Okay so this is not necessarily always a bad thing, however it does tend to get a little tiring. I AM NOT A PIECE OF MEAT! I have thought about it though and almost met up with this type of girl, but its not really me to be honest.
They think all the above but come on so strong so quickly I want to run away!
The number of girls who seem to just want to unload on me about their Ex’s, their terrible childhood, their metal issues, or tell me they miss me, really like me, or really want to meet up with me is getting silly. Why are you being so harsh on the poor girls you might ask, well I’m not a heartless person, in fact I’m far from it, I’m all for a bit of unloading from time to time, but after only one day of talking its a bit much! Seriously, take your time, there is no rush to tell me everything about your self to the point I would be scared if we met because you might have the church booked!
Some say I’m too picky about the women I like, I say a girl has to have standards.
I’m sure at some point I will meet a great girl and things will just click. The longer I go on waiting the more I feel she has gotten lost, taken a wrong turn or fallen into the clutches of someone else.
I don’t know all I do know is my search for her continues…..
