100m-Dash Kiki

I’m 45 and still constantly surprised by how fast time flies. You would think I’d be used to it by now.

August starts on Monday. My dad’s birthday is on the 8th. It’s already been a year and 8 months since he passed. I think about him daily. There are still so many annoyances affecting the closure of his estate, which sucks, but I’ve unlocked a new level of processing those feelings with the help of therapy, so that’s good. Having him buried in another country is difficult for me. I would like to be able to visit him whenever I want, so I’m very much looking forward to going to Sierra Leone this December and getting to do that.

This summer has just been busy. Loads of work ish and summer semester of grad school. I’m finishing up my 3rd semester of a 5 semester program. I’m enjoying it. It’s definitely a different experience when it’s your 2nd master’s.

So much good dnb this summer! 🥰🥰🥰 Here’s some tunes I’ve been loving:

Submorphics. He’s not only my friend, but I’m also a massive fan. We’ve been friends for about 18 years now and I still listen to his tunes on the regular.

More North Quarter selections. What can I say, their catalogue is just my vibe. 😊 Love this FD EP.

I’ve also been listening to a lot of Tyrone. I’m late to the Tyrone party. Totally wasn’t familiar with him. His tunes just always show up in my Spotify daily mix. I stan. Good stuff. 😍

Pulp Fiction Kiki

I’ve been taking this writing class to try and escape my grief. It’s actually helping as I’m really enjoying the class. I usually do my assignments on Saturday mornings. I was writing my assignment when this came on shuffle.

26 years later and the track is still dope. I’m a fan of the Lemon D remix too. I’m pretty particular about remixes. I could rant about it for ages, but I won’t. I think the Lemon D remix captured the same sentiment as the original and I appreciate that.

Starting off my Saturday vibin’. Enjoy your weekend. 🧡

Everything Gold

Went to the 25 years of Metalheadz show this weekend.  Talk about lit!  Goldie & Fabio.  LA shows really do have that energy.  Such good vibes in the place.  I was cheezin the whole time.  There were many happy junglists at 1720.  Big ups to Respect and Bassrush for such a treat.

Rise & Shine Kiki

Listening to this to start my day and it’s happy days for sure.  This oldies mix from Lenzman is golden.  💕💕💕  Icicle and Halogenix are also t Respect this week and I don’t have to work Friday morning.  I mean this week is definitely winning so far and it’s only Tuesday. 😉

 

Summertime DnB

I’m currently in New Jersey visiting family.  My brother’s house is in quite a rural area, so I’ve been enjoying the open fields, deer, sheep and duck families crossing my path as I run every morning.  I’ve especially been enjoying running with dnb blasting on my ipod in the hot weather.  Yay for summer!

This gem popped up in the shuffle and it was definitely the highlight of yesterday’s run.

Also, I never met a Lenzman mix I didn’t like and with his album launch, there are definitely plenty of them going around.

Enjoy.
