About Me

I’m just a girl with a keyboard. Location: London. Reason: extreme boredom and lack of any other legal activities. Who knew the internet could become such a void? Not me, that’s for sure. I’m a teenager (feel free to leave this blog now), so a lot of posts may be quite repetitive and carry the same underlying feel of boredom and whatever pent-up emotion I may be experiencing at that particular moment in time. I’m on a slow… monotonous journey into adulthood that seems to be dragging on and on, leaving me crippled and buried in a pile of ordinary teenage problems. The type that every single teenager on the planet is having, but that you feel is a direct attack at your very being and a form of bullying. The type that will open a conversation, or a blog post, with an absolute stranger and lead on to a massive rant about how unfair life is. The type that a girl, with a keyboard, in London may write about in order to spread the woes and joys of teenage life to the masses. And loe and behold, this blog was born.

  1. I’ve been trying to figure out your blog title for the past five minutes… At first I thought Princess Yasmine, but then I noticed an extra “a.” So then I thought Prince Say As Mine, but that didn’t make much sense. And thennnn I thought maybe Princesa is how you say princess in like, Italian or something. And then I just gave up.

    Nice blog! The grey-on-pink (under your welcome section) is a little harsh on the eyes, but the content is great! I love your writing style!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I’ll definitely visit you again. 🙂

    Keep it up!

  2. I can’t believe you are a teenager! You write wonderfully, and your blog is delightful. Thank you for visiting my blog.

    Best wishes – life will get better.


  3. Hey, thanks for ‘liking’ my blog 🙂

    I’ve just read your most recent post and have to say that pic looks suspiciously like a crown court I used to go to watch sessions at while at uni doing LLB… is it in Haringey? If so, its defo the one I’m familiar with 🙂

  4. These are the best years of your life! You don’t believe me now, but someday you will be looking at 40 in the rear view mirror and reading the Facebook status updates of your high school boyfriends whom are already grandfathers (ACK!) and are still working at an auto parts store (shew, I dodged THAT bullet, didn’t I?!). Seriously: best years of your life. 🙂

  5. Yay! Another person I can relate to! Your story is quite inspiring. I have fancied an entire book – “The Girl With A Keyboard” …

  6. As soon as you turn 20 you’ll get nostalgic about your teenage years so hang in there… 19 was by far my favourite age!

    But I like your Adrian Mole-esque tone and i’l make sure to keep on reading…

    Thanks for the like. i like it too.

  7. Hmmmm, very suspicious. I just read your two most recent blog entries and saw nothing teenage angsty…it was all about meat and/or vegetables. Not that there’s anything wrong with meat and/or vegetables (although I, too, am a vegetarian and take a wide berth around the former), but where’s the angst in that? You must deliver on your promise from the “About” section. Or rewrite it. Say that you’re a teenager who, on the slow path to adulthood, is going to grow a garden and have a barbecue. Then again, maybe I should have just read some of the older posts…well, it’s too late now. I don’t believe in editing. Cheers.

  8. Hola Princesa, I wanted to drop by and learn a little more about you after I saw you visited my blog. Your garden looks awesome and I would love to hear an update and see more pictures. I have some things growing myself. Also, I spent the better part of last year in Brighton&Hove so I am intrigued at how things in London are going! Say hi sometime! Happy writing!

  9. Hi Yasmine 🙂

    I’m glad you liked my blog entry today! Thank you for stopping by my page hun.

    I love your style of writing – you should definitely write a novel when you grow up! You have the gift!

    Love Kiran xxx

  10. Hey Girl! Like your blog! I also grow veggies, also live 5 min from the shop, only, not in London but in a little village in the Western Cape, South Africa. Go see what I’m up to- I will be keeping a close eye on you… x

  11. Nice to meet you London teen with a keyboard! Your writing style belies your age…I’m impressed! Love your post about the garden…couldn’t agree more with the great taste of homegrown veggies.

  12. Found you through your wonderful fresh garden post! Bingo! I wish I can say ‘hello fellow teen’, but I’m one year past the acceptable teenage year, so I’ll just say ‘hello fellow blogger’ instead. Unless twenteen is an accepted term that is.

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! Harry Potter fans unite! Hope to hear more from you Y@smine! 🙂

  13. Hi Yasmina, I haven’t been a teen-ager for quite some time but, leafing through your blog, I was struck by how 1. how well you write (who says teen-agers don’t know how to write anymore) and 2. that boredom doesn’t seem to be high on your list. Maybe you think you are sitting at home, bored, but your mind is great company.
    I also came of age in London and, whilst I stil live in a huge metropolis I have come to love, I do miss the grey, the severity, the fun and, sometimes, even the rain of London (I live in a place where rain makes an appearance only occasionally). Don’t forget how much is out there and don’t let it pass you by. Keep writing. Will be checking you out

  14. You’re bored in LONDON? Aren’t there like tons of things to do in London? I just came back from a visit, will post pics soon but those 4 days were a blast! Well, I guess you can’t do much of the fun stuff of as a teenager… 😉

  15. Hello!
    Gosh, I know others have already mentioned this, but your writing is so sophisticated! Lovely, lovely blog :] I can’t wait to read more!
    Bella :]
    P.S. Thank you so much for commenting! It is nice to know that someone enjoys reading my blog.

  16. Nice to meet you 😉
    Finally another Uk blogger! It seems like every blog I click onto is American, haha. Don’t get me wrong I love hearing about people’s opinions from all over the world, but I was beginning to think there were no Uk bloggers left haha! Nice blog, I`m having a good snoop around 🙂
