2019 Kiki

2018 was good to me and I’m excited for all the things 2019 has in store. 

I’ve been busy as hell, hence the radio silence on my end.  I drove from California to Wisconsin for Christmas.  My niece moved to Wisco to go live with my mum, and we needed to get her car there.  When I drove from Wisco to Cali it was quite a disaster,  but this time around it was all smooth sailing. 

I had a great Christmas and New Year. Back in LA now, and just and doing what I do. 😍

Working Girl Kiki… Finally

My weekend was all about work.  I trained at Smallbar.  I think I’m gonna like working there.  It definitely helps that I already know most of the staff there anyways.

I start my 5 week temp assignment today.  This is going to cut into my blogging time dammit. 😉  I’ll still try and post though.

Relief Kiki

I got a job.  Waiting tables.  Not exactly what I’d planned but it’s only temporary and they just need seasonal help.  Doesn’t start til June but the great news is that Madison will not be seeing my face.  I can’t really express in words what a relief this is so I’ll just stop going on about it now.  Just know that I’m happy. 🙂

Fantasy Kiki

I’m getting back into the swing of things.  The jet lag is subsiding, clothes are unpacked, I picked up my car from my bros etc.  When you go away it’s like you get to live in this fantasy world for a hot minute and then it’s funny how when you get back it’s almost like that time didn’t happen because you automatically go back to your regular routine.

I’ve got some job prospects in the pipeline so keep your fingers crossed for me.  Woot.

Au Revoir 2009

I’m making an executive decision and doing my end of year top tracks today.  I’m going to Philly today and then I’m not taking my laptop with me to NY tomorrow so that really leaves me no time to write.

Here is my repeat of end of year disclaimers…

My list is always going to be kinda bogus.  LOL.  The tunes I blogged about towards the end of the year are still fresh in my mind and therefore get more attention than the ones I blogged about back in the beginning of the year cuz I’m not sick of hearing them yet.  The list is in no particular order.  I have been told that I have strange taste in some dnb track so my list means absolutely nothing.  It’s just a compilation of songs that I personally liked over 2009.  We also must take into account that the latter half of the year I wasn’t as diligent about writing tracks down due to the loss of my job so I’m not as up on new tunes as I used to be.  This list is just of tracks that I would have been happy to keep on my ipod for the past 365 days.

End of disclaimer. 😉

I mulled over my list for ages.  I started out with 70 tracks and could only cut it down to 30 this year.  LOL.  I really tried to narrow it to at least 20 but I really like all the tracks on the list, so 30 it is.  Eek.  This will be a long post. 🙂

Christmas Card Kiki

I tend to get bored pretty quick so I changed my page again.  Nothing fancy.  Just switch up the look a tad. 🙂

I’ve been doing my Christmas cards all morning.  I don’t really usually send any but then people started sending me some so I of course have to send one in return.  I pretty much only send them to people in different countries or out of state.  If you live in the same state as me, sorry but you’re not getting one.  LOL.  My presence will have to do. 😉

Construction Kiki

They are doing construction outside my house and it’s really annoying.  I do live on a busy main street but dang get it done already.  My streets are all effed up and no one is going to want to drive by and swoop me!  Okay I’m exaggerating but whatever it’s fun to be ridiculously dramatic. 😉
