😐

I’m all over the place. I genuinely look like the emoji in the title bar.

I have loads to tell you, but no time to do it just this second. This is just a quick post.

I was just listening to some Random Movement and his version of Pennygiles’s Rhodes Adrift came on and got me hyped. Def one of my fave RM tunes. Such a good remix.

Also been listen to that Saikon that came out on Spearhead last year. I can’t get that vocal out of my head. Luuurve the tone to her voice.

California Kiki

Back in LA. Looks like I left London at the right time, as the temp started dropping and a new variant wanting some attention. I lived in the Midwest for over 20 years, and 4 years in LA has made me forget what life in negative temps is like. πŸ˜‚ That damp wet cold that showed up in London when I was leaving had me acting a straight fool. You would think I never experienced walking to the train with prickly cold cheeks as the wind made me cry.

I do feel a little less anxious about my dad’s estate. There’s still a long road ahead, as there’s still a lot of unfinished business, but it’s nice to get a little more clarity and closure on the house sitch.

It’ll be 1 year since he died in a couple of weeks, and it’s been hard that it’s taken this long to sort some of these things out. I have an amazing support network and I just have to trust that everything will work out like it needs to.

Planning some lessons for my classes that I have to teach tonight, after not having taught in almost 6 weeks. πŸ™ƒ

This Flowanastasia and Nymfo hitting a little too on the nose for me today. πŸ˜‚

Also really vibin’ to this Break remix.

Curriculum Kiki

Not to bore you with my work gripes, but I’m designing this curriculum for this course and man is it kicking my behind. Creating materials is extremely time consuming.

I’m listening to Missing & Trex and making worksheets.

I love starting my mornings with dnb. I know many people think I’m crazy to start my a.m. listening to 170 bpms, but I’m such a fan of getting the day cracking with some deep bass, drums and a liquidy vocal.

Good vibes. πŸ₯°

Kiki vs The Remix

Sometimes I have irrational anger towards bad remixes. πŸ˜‚ I didn’t make it so there’s no reason to get so angry. SMH.

I just feel like if you are going to take the time to remix something, do it well! Do the original justice while also giving us a new take.

Anyway, SATL bringing the goods on this refix sparked joy on the elliptical this morning.

Versatility

DnB you are so versatile. Β I zone out to you when I’m planning a bunch of lessons and, Β I zone out to you when I know I have no intention of planning said lessons. Β This morning it’s the latter.

Thanks Juju for the reminder, I am now in full-blown Atlantic Connection mode.

It’s gorgeous outside this a.m. and I’m only planning on listening to tunes from 2006 – 2007 today. πŸ™‚

BCee Promo Mix

Man, I used to stan so hard for BCee and Spearhead. Β I’m sure they still do a ton of stuff but since I’m rubbish at keeping up with the ins and outs of the dnb industry, I really have no clue what they’ve been up to. Β I’m happy to see this mix.

Here’s a good old Spearhead flashback. Β Not really a big Netsky fan but I’ve always liked this tune.

 

Currently listening to this gem as I try my best to avoid the urge to nap on the couch in my office. Β No classes to teach til April when the new school year starts. Β Must be productive!

I actually have a schedule that I made for myself today so I think there’s hope for me yet. Β πŸ™‚

 

Weekend Fun

It’s friday and I’m excited that there are again fun things to do.Β  The one thing that has been keeping me sane from the lack of working is that I’ve actually had the opportunity to take part in some fun activities since I got back.Β  Hopefully this keeps up until it’s nice outside again and I won’t have to worry about being trapped in my flat when there’s nothing to do.
