So far December has been wonderful. I’m pretty sure I’m just super excited to go home on Thursday, so I’m unnecessarily geeked about everything.
I somehow managed to talk my 85 year old dad through fixing the internet on his new computer and video chatting with me. I was so proud of him and it was so awesome to see his face. Technology is cool yo. So that was awesome.
Next I went to the Human Elements night on Saturday. Makoto, Velocity, Tokyo Prose, Akira, Dx, Aya… Everyone was amazing. I don’t use this phrase, but for real, that gave me life. LOL.
I listen to drum n bass every day. Here, I listen to it in my headphones at work or and have little speakers in my apartment. They have dnb nights in Tokyo and I don’t go because I don’t lead that life anymore where I can just stay out all night and party and roll up to work like it was nothing.
But hallelujah, this night was on a Saturday. I danced for 5 hours. The venue was nice and intimate with loads of people dancing and good sound. I had so much fun. So much good music.
I felt like it gave me a boost. My life here is not even anywhere close to the life I lead in the States. And I’m not really that bothered by that, but the one thing I do miss terribly, is not having regular access to go listen to dnb with other peeps who are as crazy about it as I am.
This is one of my fave Makoto tunes. ❤ (Besides Golden Girl of course. :P)
I seem to have found a good time to write my entries. The only problem is that doing them the second I wake up means that I have no good banter. LOL. I’m just groggy as hell and can only focus on what mix is gonna help me get my morning activities done. 🙂
Everything’s a blur these days. I thought it was the 17th all day yesterday and then realised I was 3 days behind. I’m super busy but it’s a good busy. I had no transition. I went from not working for a year to working 5 days a week. I’m very much relishing in my days off and attempting to catch up on sleep.

So the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup and I got pretty much no sleep last night. I live on a busy main street and all I could hear were fireworks and people screaming all night. Is it normal for people to let off fireworks all the time when something big happens or does that only happen in Chicago?? Anyways congrats to the Blackhawks.
World Cup time is finally here. Starting tomorrow I will be a fixture at Smallbar Divisionfor pretty much all the games. If you’re in Chi, come watch a game or two and have a beer. 🙂
Still in the midst of working on grad school application stuff. Nothing too exciting too report.

Shit. Unemployment is finally getting to me. I need to get out of my house. Lame. Even writing about it gets me annoyed so this rant will have to end here.
I can’t stop listening to that Giant – Drumstick VIP track. Such a party wobble track. ❤ I know I’m late on it but you know I don’t really keep up with dubstep as much as I do dnb. That Emalkay mix is still on repeat in my car. Loves it. Did you know that Enei is part of Giant? I didn’t.
I’ve been listening to everything. Dnb, dubstep, pop, rap, whatever switches up the tempo to my boring day. I’m currently listening to Cheryl Cole as i type this. Yes I’m aware that i should prolly keep that piece of info to myself but I’ll never deny my love for pop music. NEVAAAHHH. Mwahahaha. I still even have my Bros album on vinyl. Gimme me a break, I grew up in London, I will listen to pop music for the rest of my life. Girls Aloud what what! 😉
Alix Perez feat. Peven Everett and Spectrasoul – Forsaken
I’m still listening to the Alix Perez album 1984. So awesome. I can’t get this track out of my head. It’s a Chicago vocalist on the track. Woot. Big up Peven.
Unemployment has helped me hone my chef skills. Not only do I eat yummy dinners on a regular basis but i also bake desserts up the wazoo. I’m sure I’d make someone a good wife someday.
I made dinner with Jessica yesterday and we both commented on how happy we are that we are not college students anymore. I’m sure there are college students who eat well and make fancy dinners but I was definitely not one of them. I remember eating a lot of candy, which is kinda odd cuz I really don’t eat it that much anymore. When I say a lot I mean a daily visit to the corner shop to by not one but at least 3 different kinds, Twix, Almond Joy, Kit Kat etc and that would suffice as some sort of meal. I also ate a lot of Pasta Roni and Wendy’s. I’m not knocking any of those items. I’m just saying that after spending the time and the money to eat awesome food I am ok with not visiting that chapter of my life again. 😉
