Treadmill Soundtracks

Had a fantastic holiday at home.  Good lovable fam time, amazing friend hangs and an absolutely gorgeous wedding.  Couldn’t really ask for much more.  Back in the crazy Japanese heat and making myself get used to unavoidable pools of sweat just sitting in my bra whenever I even dare to step outside.  Glad to be back.  Ready to take this last year by storm.

Currently running to this on repeat. <3 <3 <3

Rain, Rain and More Rain

Rainy season is upon us.  Non-stop rain, non-stop mugginess.  Meh.

Exams this week.  No more classes to teach til after summer holiday.  Going home to America next week.  Woohoo.

A little Alex Reece and Lemon D to get the morning puddle jumping underway.

Um… How Is It June 18???

I’ve been meaning to update for a minute and time seems to just keep running laps around me.

Going home to America soon.  Super excited to see my family and friends and go to Mollie and Sam’s wedding.

I’ll write a better post later.  I’m in the midst of making review sheets and writing tests for the end of the first term.

When I get that done I’ll be ready to blab endlessly like I usually do.

Test writing soundtrack = A Sides & Makoto

Sun & Bass Podcast #36 – Total Science

work

Blog bday!  7 years.

I stopped doing my livejournal blog in 2008.  I decided that I was always “all in my feelings” in those blog posts and real talk…, nobody could possibly care that much about my thoughts.

I took a year off and then started this one.  I made the decision to blab A LOT less about my life and just talk about how much I love drum n bass.  I figured that would make me only mildly annoying.

I was just telling Kate that between my livejournal and my wordpress, I have now been blogging for 14 years.  That’s crazy.

I’m celebrating this 7th bday with this wonderful Total Science mix that they did for the Sun & Bass Podcast.

Oh Sun & Bass pretty please, don’t stop being in existence before I actually manage to be able to go. :P

Friction

It’s a holiday week here, but I didn’t go anywhere.  Is there such thing as being travelled out?  Totally don’t mean to sound bratty.  I’m very grateful for all the opportunities I’ve had and all the places I’ve been.  I’ve kinda just reached a point where I’m not trying to constantly gallivant everywhere and explore everything.  I have about 6 places on my bucket list that I definitely want to go to at some point, but right now, I’m kind of over the travelling for travelling sake.  I’m really excited about going home this summer to see my family and friends and for the rest of the time, I’m content just being the most boring person in Togane.  

I did have a lovely day outing in Narita with the Johnson sisters on Saturday and I also went to Kate’s taiko performance.  So it’s not like I was a complete shut-in.

This school term is crackers.  There’s so much stuff to be done.  I’ve spent the other half of my holiday studying Japanese and getting ahead on our lesson planning.  I started out listening to a Logan Sama grime mix and didn’t really get much done, cuz I was too amped and taking notes on tracks I “must have.” LOL.  Enter Friction with this goodie goodie gumdrop. A little more lesson planning friendly for Kenyeh Sensei. :)

Bachelors of Science – FabricLive Promo Mix

This one goes out to my friend Judi, who for almost 2 years had a Bachelors of Science mix stuck in the cd player in her car.  

We would have the same conversation every time she picked me up to go somewhere.

Me:  Judi why are you always listening to this Bachelors of Science mix?

Judi:  Keekee, I’ve told you, it’s stuck in there!  NBD.  It’s a good mix.

LMAO.  She was always so noncholant about it.  She was right though, It really was a good mix.  :P

Things I Most Definitely Will Always Sleep On…

My best friend and his crew used to do this graffiti magazine called Life Sucks Die.  They would have this section called “Things You Might Have Slept On” and they would tell you about a plethora of ridiculous things that you never noticed before and they felt you needed to pay attention to.

I was listening to this all Steo mix by SirReal and the Alix Perez remix of Zero T’s “Refusal” came on and I was like “This is dope!”  I looked it up and saw that it came out last summer.  No surprise there.  I’m so out of the loop that I’m sure there’s a bajillion tracks that I probably won’t hear until I come across them in a mix like a decade from now.  LOL.

Anyways, it’s a nice remix.  The SirReal mix is dope too.  I’m a big Steo fan and appreciate hearing someone mix all of his features instead of me having to make an Itunes playlist. :P
