Endorphins Kiki

I am a really early riser. Like super early. We’re talking 4/4:30 am. I’ve been like that for as long as I can remember. I usually don’t do anything but mull over my life, lay in bed, watch telly or read. I’m trying to be more productive though and go to the gym at that time instead. Fortunately my gym isn’t that far from my house or I know I def wouldn’t go. 😂 One of the motivators is knowing I will get to listen to really loud dnb for about an hour and a half while I release those endorphins. It’s so enjoyable. I never regret going. I just gotta get my ass up and moving.

I love this point of the summer. All the liquidy goodness that’s being released matches the outside energy. Blue skies, warm weather… yes I know I live in LA, but still. I guess let me rephrase it as matching the energy of the season that the majority of the world is experiencing at the same time.

So many bangers bringing me joy as I sweat away my troubles. These 2 were especially giving me all the feels this morning. So dreamy. 🥰

Curriculum Kiki

Not to bore you with my work gripes, but I’m designing this curriculum for this course and man is it kicking my behind. Creating materials is extremely time consuming.

I’m listening to Missing & Trex and making worksheets.

I love starting my mornings with dnb. I know many people think I’m crazy to start my a.m. listening to 170 bpms, but I’m such a fan of getting the day cracking with some deep bass, drums and a liquidy vocal.

Good vibes. 🥰

Summer Session Kiki

Been in Chicago and Wisconsin for the last 3 weeks. It was a really great trip. Got to spend some quality time with my besties and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Had a fab 4th and I’m back in LA now. Summer session begins today. No rest for the wicked and all that. 😉

Listening to some tunes and lesson planning. It’s my first time hearing this Cyantific tune. Def a vibe. 😍

Expected Kiki

Surprise surprise. I’m leaving tomorrow at crack ass o’clock and haven’t packed a lick of anything. I have to teach my evening classes in 30 minutes, but fortunately it’s quiz day so I guess I’ll just pack while they are doing that? My procrastination is so expected at this point. Par for the course, innit?

Excited to see my Chicago lovelies and then on to hang with the fam after that.

I’m finishing up my quizzes and listening to some Nu:Tone.

Eek Kiki

I may have bitten off a little more than I can chew with this new project I’ve taken on, but I feel motivated to get it done. “Go Keeks!” 😬😩😭

Morning motivation:

Kiki vs The Remix

Sometimes I have irrational anger towards bad remixes. 😂 I didn’t make it so there’s no reason to get so angry. SMH.

I just feel like if you are going to take the time to remix something, do it well! Do the original justice while also giving us a new take.

Anyway, SATL bringing the goods on this refix sparked joy on the elliptical this morning.

Summer Kiki

Restrictions are being lifted and people are ready to let loose. My calendar is starting to fill up! Everyone wants to make up for lost time and I’m here for it. 🥰🥰🥰

Starting my a.m. off with this Loz mix. So many good tunes! 💜

Playlist Kiki

I’m always trying to make the perfect playlist. I make so many and never listen to them. I finally listened to one on the drive down to see my family. I was like “This is so good!” Like I didn’t spend hours putting it together. 😂

Love this banger:
