I teach at two different schools and their spring breaks are on different weeks. 😭 At least there’s a little reprieve during the two week span. This week I don’t have to teach in the evening, so that’s a plus.
Working on my lesson plan for my LACC students and Listening to The North Quarter on Echobox. Greg did a nice little Fats tribute collection.
I’m hanging in there…. barely. Very much looking forward to Thanksgiving so I can have a break.
Received some bad news about my father’s estate. Can’t believe we’re coming up on 2 years and this person is still causing all this trouble. I can’t even imagine what it will be like when I get to grieve my dad properly.
I am happy I am going to Sierra Leone for Christmas. I know we say our loved ones are always with us, and I do believe he is, to some extent. I just feel like his energy will be stronger in his resting place. That’s his home. I have a hard time with him not being buried in a place I can go visit regularly.
It’s crazy that there’s only 6 more until the end of the year. 😐
Lenzman and Submorphics played this Calibre on the most recent Echobox Radio show and I forgot how much I love this tune. Gonna have to put it in rotation for a bit. 🥰
Currently listening to some Redeyes and reading research articles.
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. 😍
Greg played at RESPECT yesterday. Great set as always. We were laughing because funnily enough I’ve probably seen him more than I’ve seen most of my friends, due to pandemic isolation of course. He’s been back to California a couple of times, and we saw each other when I was in London too. Always a pleasure.
It was nice to go hear some good dnb. I love the sound in Station 1640. It really makes going to go listen to dnb a delightful experience.
It’s the end of the semester. I’m doing grades, writing final exams, doing my own final assignments for school and still listening to Zero T because I’m so here for this Kilburn vibe. I guess The North Quarter has a show on Rinse FM now? 🥰
I just did the longest homework assignment. It wasn’t even a paper. It pretended to be a simple assignment under the guise of “review” a blah blah blah, but include a, b, c, etc. It took about 5 hours to do. 😩
Lenzman, Submorpics and Tyrone kept me company for 2 of those 5 hours, so it wasn’t all bad. 🥰
The North Quarter label night was so fun! It was great to see Greg and the music was amazing! Just good vibes and people dancing. I really enjoyed myself. Me and my old bones stayed out til 4am. I heard so many great new remixes. All round everyone just had wicked sets.
My time is London is coming to an end for now. I’m headed back to LA on Sunday.
Currently trying to get ahead on school work so I don’t have to frantically catch up when I get back.
I had been keeping my eye out for this Monty tune ever since I heard it on that Redeyes and Monty Outlines mix back in June and have pretty much had it on repeat ever since it got released. Really looking forward to his album. 🥰
