California Kiki

Back in LA. Looks like I left London at the right time, as the temp started dropping and a new variant wanting some attention. I lived in the Midwest for over 20 years, and 4 years in LA has made me forget what life in negative temps is like. ๐Ÿ˜‚ That damp wet cold that showed up in London when I was leaving had me acting a straight fool. You would think I never experienced walking to the train with prickly cold cheeks as the wind made me cry.

I do feel a little less anxious about my dad’s estate. There’s still a long road ahead, as there’s still a lot of unfinished business, but it’s nice to get a little more clarity and closure on the house sitch.

It’ll be 1 year since he died in a couple of weeks, and it’s been hard that it’s taken this long to sort some of these things out. I have an amazing support network and I just have to trust that everything will work out like it needs to.

Planning some lessons for my classes that I have to teach tonight, after not having taught in almost 6 weeks. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

This Flowanastasia and Nymfo hitting a little too on the nose for me today. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Also really vibin’ to this Break remix.

Bright and Early Kiki

I’m living a very disciplined life these days. I’m a procrastinator so this is soooo not my wheelhouse. LOL. I’m diggin’ it though. It makes me feel organized. I just have a lot to get done, so I actually can’t afford to procrastinate.

Don’t know how I missed this Alix Perez mix. It says it’s 2 months old. Stellar as usual. ๐Ÿ˜

Track Attack Kiki

I’ve been wondering what this tune was for ages. I heard it on an Alix Perez mix last summer and didn’t for the life of me know what it was. I love Visages. This tune is dope. It’s on the Dark Guru EP on 1985 Music. I also really liked the track Egotrip. ๐Ÿ˜

Lyin’ Ass Kiki

November? Smh. I’m looking forward to going to my mum’s. Gonna post up there until after Christmas. I’m teaching online anyway so it doesn’t really matter where I’m at.

I usually start my weekend writing down all the things I plan to get done over the course of the weekend and really just do them all on Sunday. Who knows what the point of lying to myself is. It’s a fun little game me and my brain play.

Currently lesson planning and listening to Alix.

Up and at ’em Kiki

I watered my patio flowers which are actually still alive and look like they are flourishing, I’ve done laundry, organized my desk and written 2 tests.ย  Not a bad start for a Sunday.

Got that Alix on repeat while I’m feeling productive. ๐Ÿ˜

Repeat Kiki

I’ve been listening to the Alix Perez mix on repeat for about 2 months straight now.ย  It’s so good.ย  Do yourself a favour and join the repeat club, and if you know what that track is that comes in at 14:14 let me know.ย  ๐Ÿ˜

Went to see the homie Submorphics on Saturday.ย  What a fun night!ย  Great turnout.ย  Fab lineup.ย  Awesome tunes.ย  Props to the Xcellerated crew for a great event!ย  Maybe me and my old teacher bones will venture out to another event soon.

Spending my Presidents’ Day lesson planning.

Current tune on repeat ๐Ÿ˜

Quiet Kiki

Have a quiet moment to myself while the fam took the kiddos to Disneyland.ย  The pics look like they’re having fun, but I really and truly was not interested in going. LOL

Been working so much the past couple of weeks that I just need a moment to myself to excel at napping, watch a bunch of TV, and just chill the fuck out.

These tunes are on my current playlist to keep the mood just right for the night I had in mind. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thought of this tune out of nowhere the other day.ย  13 years old and still lovely as ever.ย 

 

R & B & Kiki

90’s R&B is where it’s at yo. ย So many good tunes. ย I remember being soooo obsessed with Jodeci. ย Really though, who wasn’t back then? ย I woke up this a.m. wanting to listen to Jodeci, but it’s too slow to make me run on the treadmill, so Alix Perez and Specific’s “Love Bug” was just as satisfying. ๐Ÿ˜†
