IRA Kiki

Today I did grown ups stuffs.  I know I’m 34 but it’s so rare that my adult life actually consists of things that I didn’t do when I was 26 or whatever.  I had to go to the bank to handle rolling over a 401K that I had from Adidas.  Blah blah blah.  I was amazed about how little I knew and how little desire I had to know.  LOL.  Oh well it’s done.  Moving on.

Picky Kiki

I’ve been listening to a lot of really great mixes lately.  It makes me crave going to an awesome dnb night.  I’m  too old to go to raves.  I feel really uncomfortable hanging out with 17 year olds…  and I should!  LOL.  They are 17!

I really just miss our dnb nights in bars.  All I really want to do is sit in a bar with my friends and listen to some good dnb.

Before people start bombarding me with responses about where there’s all these good nights in the city blah blah, I work.  I’m not trying to go see you mix at 3am and I don’t want to always have to go to Smart Bar.  I’m talking about the cute nights we use to have all over the city in nice intimate bars.  I’m about to be 34 on sunday so I think I’m allowed to be as picky as I want about where I want to go listen to my music. 🙂

Blah Kiki

I seem to be bored a lot lately.  It’s understandable as I really don’t have anything to do ever but usually I seem to find stuff to occupy my time.  I guess now I’m just waiting for my trip to New Jersey for my nephew’s christening in two weeks.  Lately I can’t seem to wait to get out of Chicago.  I’m sure that feeling will go away once summer starts and there’s a bajillion things to do.  Fingers crossed.

And She’s Back!

Hi!  My globetrotting has come to an end.  I’m a bit sad about it.  I have definitely figured out again, what I already knew,  that I love travelling abroad.  I’m an international chick and just tend to thrive better when I’m overseas.  I must figure out a way to get some funds so  I can do it more often.  I can’t honestly say that I was happy to return to annoying cold weather and no job, but alas it is what it is.

I am soooo behind in my dnb world.  Shame on me.  Since I forgot the powercord to my laptop I couldn’t even update the mixes on my ipod so I don’t even know what’s out there.  I am excited to get back on track though.

Do you guys ever listen to Ros & Reza’s Soul Addiction Bassdrive show?  I’m a new listener and I love it.  Really great chill vibes.  You should check it out.  It’s on every thursday from 9 – 11 am CST.

What a rubbish day it is outside.  Just once it would be nice to live in a place where the weather was consistent.  It’s hard to motivate yourself to leave your house when it’s murky, grey and spitting rain.

Neglectful Kiki

Hello.  Yes I’m rubbish.  I didn’t mean to neglect you.  I honestly didn’t realise that the main reason I was able to write in my blog everyday was because I spent all day sitting at the computer.  I’m seriously not home long enough to come up with the time to write posts these days.  I’m going to make an attempt to do them first thing when I wake up now.

My 4th was pretty cool.  Beatchemist and some of our Bassdrive buddies were here through the 4th so I kicked it with them at Juju’s and drank ate and watched the fireworks on Juju’s street… yes I did say street.  True Chicago style people just having firework wars from block to block.  Woot.

I’m still not to stressed out about not having a job.  I’m still optimistic that the situation will sort itself out.  I think that stressing about money is really annoying so I’ve just chosen not to do it.  The thing that is making me a wee bit depressed though is not having anything to do.  I’ve become quite adept at filling up my days with activities but when you wake up at the crack of dawn like I do, it makes for a pretty long day.  I guess it’s just nice to feel useful sometimes. *shrugs*

Anyways back to dnb land.  I’ve actually been listening to a lot of stuff but just haven’t written about it.  Lets get back on track Kiki!
