I didn’t disappear. I’ve been tucked away studying Japanese. I’ve actually been quite disciplined. I wake up, work out and then put myself in school for about 5 hours. I was never a good student and still am not, but one thing I definitely know is the benefit of understanding the structure of the language of the students I’m teaching. It helps immensely in the classroom because you can predict their errors, so I’m grinning and bearing it.
Summer is coming along nicely, it’s going by so fast though! 3 more weeks and then I’m off to Japan. I’m beside myself trying to figure out how one packs to go away for one year. I feel like I had become quite good at the short stays. 6 months is nothing. You know you’ll be back soon enough so you just make sure you have enough clothes and little trinkets that will help you create a home away from home. 1 year though, you try and make sure you bring your home with you. They recommend that I don’t bring too much stuff with me and buy stuff there and then get my family to ship stuff to me… um that won’t work for me. I’m not rich. It’s so expensive to ship stuff to other countries. I sent a small box of clothes to my cousin in London which had like 5 things I got for her kiddos at Target and it cost $50. I’d rather pay for the extra suitcase now instead.
Anyways, enough whinging. I was just letting you know what I’ve been up to. I haven’t really been finding any mixes that I felt like I would die if I didn’t share with you, hence the lack of posts. I’ve just been listening to old stuff. I love the feeling of reintroducing old tunes to the rotation. So many fond memories.
I’m going to Chicago today to visit the homies. Came across this Soultec mix. I haven’t listened to it yet but the tracklist looks decent and I usually like Soultec mixes so hopefully this adds some joy to my roadtrip. :)

It’s weird that now the World Cup is over it’s almost like it never happened. LOL. I spent a whole month pretty much working every day at Smallbar and now I’m just back to what I was doing before. It’s almost like when you go on a tropical holiday and you’re completely consumed by the beach and then you come back to your regular life and you’re not really able to hold on to what was going on while you away because it’s so drastically different from what you were doing before you left. *shrugs*
Sam gets here today. Woot.
I will admit that I haven’t been listening to a lot of the mixes I’ve downloaded lately. I’m trying to reload my whole itunes library and so I’ve kinda been immersed in all those cds that I own. I’ve got some good stuff. :)

So I’m going to be computerless for the rest of the week. If my old laptop cooperates then I’ll post but I can’t guarantee that it’ll happen. I’m at my brother’s using his right now. This not having a computer for the rest of the week will be very interesting as I spend pretty much all my time online. I might actually have to… *gasp* leave the house! ;)

I got a late start to my day since I slept at my bro’s last night. My punctual nature in general has been tarnished by this bout of unemployment. Since I have nothing to do I find myself adopting the “I’ll get there when I get there” attitude. Shame on me indeed.

I wish I was on a floating island. I know I just got back from gallivanting everywhere but I would love to go on a warm sunny vacay. I’m jealous of the WMC peeps who have such a beachy holiday approaching. This tune will have to suffice as my getaway. ;)

Remember what a fun game that was when you were a kid? You could play lets pretend for hours! I’m pretending today by making up activities to do so I don’t get stuck in my house. *shrugs* The main thing is that it gets me out of my house… we’ll worry about the delusional state of mind later. ;)

I have been digging this tune ever since I heard it on Soultec’s July Studio mix. I couldn’t find the artists cuz it was spelled wrong in the tracklist. Thanks to Dvus and the Bassdrive Chat posse for filling me in. Love it. Big up Japan.

I’m at home. Yay. Jessica and Joia can’t come anymore and my money is dwindling, so I figured instead of staying in Chicago and spending more money, I could come home earlier and relax.
Madison is so quiet. I like coming to visit my mum but I definitely could not live here.
Slider & Expose – Hooked (track is in player)
Ed Oberon played this when he came to Chi and I was digging it. Sounds awesome out loud.
Have you guys listened to the Zero T Mix or the Hayze Mix that I posted recently? I listened to them while driving to Madison and they are wicked. Definitely check ‘em out. :)

M25, The Square & First Function – On The South (Jynx Remix)
This new aimlessly wandering lifestyle I seem to have adopted is so odd. If there’s anything anyone would say about me it’s that I’m usually a stickler for structure.
I’m still job hunting and I’m also doing some work for one of my friends as well as holding on to my current savings for dear life. I have enough money to last me for a minute but at the same time I’m being quite stingy with my dollars.
It’s actually kinda interesting to not know what’s going on day to day. I don’t know if I could do this on a permanent basis but for now I’m kinda enjoying it. :)
Commix - Breaking Through
I could have sworn I posted this already but I was probably just waiting for a sample. Love it.

I must say I really like Eveson’s vibe. Pretty tunes.
Commix - Midas Touch – Subtitles Music 2005
I figured I’d continue on the Commix route. This track isn’t as old obviously but it’s still one of my Commix faves.
