Kiki Raises The White Flag

I admit defeat.  Graduate school is officially the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.  I still am enjoying what I’m learning but dang, there’s so much work and it really is becoming a bit overwhelming.  Don’t worry I’m not gonna get all emo.  I’m hanging in there.  I can’t wait til this semester is over though.

Some good dnb shows come up in the Chi so that’s at least something to look forward to.

Always good to see A Sides.  He never disappoints. ❤

The following week Calculon will be back throwing down at Smart Bar.  Love Calculon too.  Will be an awesome distraction to hang out with the dnb homies and listen to some good tunes as finals approach.  If you are in town make sure to come hang out.  You know there are good times to be had!

Fall Kiki

So Summer is officially over.  I’m not mourning it.  Autumn is my favourite time of the year.  I’m back to being boring.  I had a couple of weeks where I got to wild out and party to some dnb and now it’s just school and work again.  I have been hearing some awesome tunes though so at least that’s keeping me going.  If you find yourself having a tremendous amount of fun at a dnb party, make sure you brock out for me too. 😉

Tunes:
Phat Playaz, Scott Allen & Deeper Connection – Looking Inside

Foreign Concept & Kasra – Show You

Command Strange – Sweetest Goodbye

Kiki <3s DnB

I had a really fun week last week.  LTJ was wicked.  Jessica won her MMA fight.  Good times.  This week is gonna be even funner 😉  yes I said funner.  Can you say S.P.Y.?  And it’s free??  What?  Love it.  I’ve been having these horrible marathon studying sessions and I guess having good dnb shows to go to is my reward for being a good student.  Thursday come quick yo!

Midterm Kiki

Studying for midterms.  Grad school is good.  I’m still enjoying it but dang there really aren’t enough hours in the day.  I am stressed cuz I don’t ever have time for anything.  Sigh.  There’s a beautiful bright light at the end of this tunnel and so I will just keep trudging through. 🙂

Dave Owen is at Smart Bar today.  Go check him out if you’re in town.

Also Natives at Crocodile is tonight. Ike Release is playing.

Should be a fun night all round.  I’m excited that I get to see my dnb buddies. ❤

Here’s a teaser for the April Natives Show with Total Science.

Welcome back Kiki, Here’s Some Crap Weather For You

I’m back.  LA was wicked.  The weather wasn’t the greatest but it was still ten thousand times better than the 30 degrees and snowing we’ve got here right now.  Boo.

George’s art show was amazing.  I was so happy for him.  He’s so talented.  It was also great to see Mollie.  I say it all the time, I have wonderful friends and I’m very grateful to have them in my life.

Stunna and Bachelors of Science killed it.  I’m really glad I got to go to the show.  Really good vibes.  Fun times.

Did you guys listen to the RM Podcast 18?  Good tunes on there.  I ran to it this morning. 🙂

The Longest Day

If you know me pretty well, you know I  have a penchant for watching bad tv.  I don’t know why.  I know it’s bad.  I’ll just watch it and have no qualms about it.  LOL.  I was an avid Dawson’s Creek watcher.  There, I’ve admitted it.  I had a crush on Pacey.  My favourite episode was entitled “The Longest Day” and it was the episode where everyone found out that Pacey and Joey had been secretly seeing each other.  The title of this post made me think of the Dawson crew.

I had a really long day yesterday.  I usually think my days are long when I have to fill them up with stuff to do but actually doing stuff for long periods of time is definitely worse.  I didn’t even go to the gym til 10pm.  I’m rusty on the work tip obviously!

Tunes:

I like both the tracks on this release.  Really nice summery vibe. 🙂

I’m really surprised that I hadn’t done this one already, but like I’ve said before, I try and stay away from the obvious ones and then I forget about them completely.  This track is when I fell in love with Bad Company.  I know everyone else would die for The Nine, but I honestly really am not that crazy about the track.  I think it’s okay, but 4 days?   I’ll dance in front of a speaker for that one for sure. 😉

End Of Fuss Kiki

So Christmas is done.  No more people fussing about, which is nice.  I had a good one.  I really enjoyed the time with the fam.  I’m still in NJ.  My sisters are gone already.  Now it’s just me and mum left hovering over my nephew.  He’s still too adorable.  I took some pics but realised that I didn’t bring my cord to upload them so they’ll have to wait til I get back to Chi.

I’m going to Philly tomorrow and then New York on wednesday.  It’s nice that both places are just an hour train ride away.   I’m on a quest for more hanging out time but this time it’s with my friends.  Woot.  Hope everyone had a great holiday.
