I’m hanging in there…. barely. Very much looking forward to Thanksgiving so I can have a break.
Received some bad news about my father’s estate. Can’t believe we’re coming up on 2 years and this person is still causing all this trouble. I can’t even imagine what it will be like when I get to grieve my dad properly.
I am happy I am going to Sierra Leone for Christmas. I know we say our loved ones are always with us, and I do believe he is, to some extent. I just feel like his energy will be stronger in his resting place. That’s his home. I have a hard time with him not being buried in a place I can go visit regularly.
It’s crazy that there’s only 6 more until the end of the year. 😐
Lenzman and Submorphics played this Calibre on the most recent Echobox Radio show and I forgot how much I love this tune. Gonna have to put it in rotation for a bit. 🥰
Currently listening to some Redeyes and reading research articles.
I’m not too bothered by there being no seasons in SoCal. I am so grateful that I don’t deal with snow anymore that I’m ok with that trade. I do love fall though. It would be nice if I could just go on a “Momijigari” like they do in Japan. Momijigari is going on an autumnal jaunt to see the fall leaves.
Doing homework. Listening to some Smote. I used to be OBSESSED with this one tune of his on Innerground from back in the day. More than happy to jump back on the Smote train. 😊
I also listened to this mix while I was at the gym this morning. Not only do I love Zero T’s tunes, but I also really love him as a dj. His sets are just so good. 🥰
He plays Break’s Squash remix towards the end. That remix really is amazing. Still got it on repeat!
Boo. Summer is over. Fall semester starts tomorrow. Not having a proper summer holiday made these past 3 months just speed by!
Fall is my favourite season. I didn’t get a summer holiday, but I do have 2 weddings coming up. I will be travelling for them and they are the weddings of 2 of my favourite people, so that should be fun.
Listening to this Disrupta mix from a couple of months ago and trying to get myself organized for the new semester.

Summer is just speeding on. I saw Lenzman a couple of weeks ago and it was so so dope. I love being able to go out and see dnb again. I had such a good time.
I was listening to Calibre’s remix of Klute’s Now, Always, Forever on the walk home from the bar, and man, that Calibre era had such a chokehold on me. Such a great remix.
My school moved, so I’ve been busy with that. Still kicking it. Still missing my dad. Still slaving over grad school homework. Still listening to a ridiculous amount of dnb. 😊
Hope you all are well.
I really enjoyed this month’s BankBeats. 🥰

I survived my second semester of grad school. This second go is a little more difficult as I’m working in my career, and the last time I was just working in a bar. I am enjoying it though.
Still dealing with issues from beneficiaries and my father’s estate. It’s been a year and a half since he passed. I really will be happy when it’s over and I can just grieve and memorialize him in peace.
Getting some work done and listening to this Askel & Elere mix.

Greg played at RESPECT yesterday. Great set as always. We were laughing because funnily enough I’ve probably seen him more than I’ve seen most of my friends, due to pandemic isolation of course. He’s been back to California a couple of times, and we saw each other when I was in London too. Always a pleasure.
It was nice to go hear some good dnb. I love the sound in Station 1640. It really makes going to go listen to dnb a delightful experience.
It’s the end of the semester. I’m doing grades, writing final exams, doing my own final assignments for school and still listening to Zero T because I’m so here for this Kilburn vibe. I guess The North Quarter has a show on Rinse FM now? 🥰
