It’s a holiday week here, but I didn’t go anywhere.  Is there such thing as being travelled out?  Totally don’t mean to sound bratty.  I’m very grateful for all the opportunities I’ve had and all the places I’ve been.  I’ve kinda just reached a point where I’m not trying to constantly gallivant everywhere and explore everything.  I have about 6 places on my bucket list that I definitely want to go to at some point, but right now, I’m kind of over the travelling for travelling sake.  I’m really excited about going home this summer to see my family and friends and for the rest of the time, I’m content just being the most boring person in Togane.  

I did have a lovely day outing in Narita with the Johnson sisters on Saturday and I also went to Kate’s taiko performance.  So it’s not like I was a complete shut-in.

This school term is crackers.  There’s so much stuff to be done.  I’ve spent the other half of my holiday studying Japanese and getting ahead on our lesson planning.  I started out listening to a Logan Sama grime mix and didn’t really get much done, cuz I was too amped and taking notes on tracks I “must have.” LOL.  Enter Friction with this goodie goodie gumdrop. A little more lesson planning friendly for Kenyeh Sensei. 🙂

It’s actually not that cold out, but man it looks grey and miserable outside.

The weekend is here.  February starts on monday, which means I begin the countdown to my LA trips with my besties.  I found out Stunna is actually gonna be out there the same time as me so I’ll be going to check out his show.  Woot. (I’ll post info on that show later)

Heavy tune!  Stunna played this one on his show on wednesday and I can’t get it out of my head.  Big up Will. 🙂

Dance Party Kiki

Stunna had an awesome set yesterday at Crocodile.  I love that we have a place to go listen to our music again.

My cousin Nima is coming again tomorrow.  Yay.  Margie and co wanna have a dance party weekend and I’m always down and I’m sure Nima will be down to.

I start my second job on monday so I’m def. looking to have a bit of a rowdy weekend before I have no time to do anything, ever… yes I love to exaggerate.

I’m still not on top everything like I need to be.  Maybe I’ll stop being so hard on myself and give myself a break for the weekend and kick my ass in gear starting monday. 😉

Goal Differential, Round of 16 Kiki

Even though Juju tried to hate on me, I didn’t forget you.  (<3 you Juju)  I have been in World Cup mania at work.  It’s actually kind of fun but at the same time everything is a blur.  I am so excited to have today off.  I don’t get to relax or anything.  I’m basically using this day to do all the things that I haven’t gotten to do in the past week.  Did you see that Italy match yesterday?  Awesome.  Buh bye Italy!  I’m so excited to get into some more good football watching.  This weekend’s games are going to be wicked too.  Meh I sound like a nerd.  Lets move on to some dnb.

My buddy Stunna is having a show this weekend.  You can see me, Grand Marquee, Alfonz De La Mota, Midway and Place 42 play at an all dnb gig this saturday June 26.  Yes I repeat Chicago another all dnb gig.  I know these are so few and far between that we’ve forgotten what they are but I’m so excited to hang out with my friends, play some music and listen to some dnb.  I miss that so much.  If you’re in Chi please come and hang out with us.  It’s going to be lovely. 🙂

I’ve been listening to some awesome mixes at the gym and on my walks to work.  Thank god for Bassdrive.  I don’t have as much time to search for new mixes so I just download an archive and I’m good to go.  Lots of good tunes out as usual.  I’ve been hearing some pretty wicked darker/rowdier ones that I’ve been digging…  Yes you heard correctly,  Liquid Funk Kiki is digging more and more rowdy tunes. *shrugs*  What can I say, I’m not laying around my flat pondering my life as much anymore so a rowdy tune here and there while on the go definitely gets me excited.  😉

I hope I get a chance to write again soon but I can’t guarantee it.  I have a long stretch coming up with no days off again for a minute.  We’ll see.

Hope all is well.

Over-age Kiki

So me and Daniela went to see Caspa at Smart Bar yesterday.  I like dubstep.  I don’t listen to it as much as dnb but I do enjoy the genre and all its sub categories.  Yesterday I was up for some rowdy party dubstep.  Apparently no one told me and Daniela that it was a 22 year olds only party.  LOL.  I don’t know why I keep being surprised every time I go to his shows.  He has a huge following.  He’s totally grabbed the new ravers crowd.  Me and Daniela were some of the oldest people there.  These kids love him.  Camera phones, autographs, etc.  It’s awesome.  I love watching it but at the same time it’s definitely a reminder that we are old.  It was seriously like a rave in there except we were in a club and it’s 2010.  I had fun nonetheless.  Caspa is  a good dj.  Good times.

Kiki Roker

Al Roker is a weatherman right?  I swear you would think I’m a meteorologist since all I do is talk about the weather these days but seriously it’s gorgeous out.  I just came in from frolicking around outside…  okay I wasn’t frolicking but I feel like it paints a sunnier picture of how lovely it is outside if I say frolicking.  Bear with me people, the weather is a huge focus for an unemployed person like myself who spends a majority of her time inside her apartment. 😉

Last night was fun.  I miss not being able to go out and hear dnb regularly.  We have really awesome local dnb djs here in Chicago.  Love it. ❤
