This video is making the rounds again and I’ll happily watch it on repeat.

So many feels.  Totally the beginning of my love affair with this whole scene.

20 years and still amazing af.

I’m gonna sit here and rave while I grade these papers. :)

Tough At The Top

Moving a bit slow this a.m.

E-Z Rollers and Origin Unknown is my morning medicine.  Nothing like some funky/jazzy dnb to stop you from being so fucking lazy.

That breakdown in the Origin Unknown remix gets me every time.  <3 <3 <3

Ivy Lab All Day

I consistently have so much love for Ivy Lab.  Hearts, hearts and more hearts.

I can’t get over how good their remix of Lenzman’s Paper Faces is.

I’m currently having a little Ivy Lab appreciation session here at the crib, so I figured why not post some tunes. :)

Ill Logic & Raf

I was listening to a mix the other day and the dj threw in an old Ill Logic & Raf tune, which of course meant I had to dust off some of the Ill Logic & Raf faves, and spend the whole day listening to them on repeat.

So so good.

Reluctant Sensei

Not feeling it today.  Would much prefer to lay around and binge-watch bad television.  Instead I’m making worksheets and what not, for lessons.  Danny Byrd is pumping me up, and helping me not die of boredom.  Hallelujah.

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
