Rest, Kiki? What’s That?

The longest day ever is about to commence.  I have training from 9 to 3 and then I have to go to work at 5… ouch.

Autumn Kiki

I raked leaves this past weekend, I’ve been wearing a light coat for the past couple of days… It’s official peeps, Autumn is here.  I love it.  This is my fave time of the year.  I love the greyness, I love that it’s cold but not too cold.  I love wearing a hoodie and feeling cozy.  ❤

Recommendation Kiki

Somehow September managed to sneak its way on in.  I’m excited it’s here cuz I’m ready for fall but I just can’t believe how fast August went!

I went to my old university today to go see my two fave professors about writing me recommendations for the masters programs I’m applying to.  I don’t want to sound all sappy, but sometimes teachers really can make a difference.  When I went back to school the second time around, I really wouldn’t have flourished as I did if it wasn’t for Ms. Olson and Dr. List.  Props to all those teachers out there who make a difference in some people’s lives.  They are both really wonderful people. ❤

Kiki The Pseudo Full Time Employee

I really only have 2 shifts at Smallbar but I’ve managed to pick up shifts each week that make it seem like I work there 5 days a week.  LOL.  Hey I’m broke.  Gotta do what you can right?  Everyone knows that if you need a shift covered, Kiki is a shoe in. 🙂

Girls Rock Kiki

I’m actually pretty excited today.  I’ll be teaching a workshop to some young girls at this camp.  The program is called Girls Rock! Chicago.  I think this is so cool.  I would have been so ecstatic if this was available when I was younger.  This is the first year that they are adding a Dj workshop to the music camp.  I’m extremely grateful that I get to be part of it.

I’ve been loving this tune for a minute.  I’m not as crazy about the dnb version but this version is definitely fire.  Nice club/party banger. ❤

Kiki = Content

I had a pretty awesome weekend actually.  I worked my first shift at Smallbar and that went pretty well.  I’m still not a beer expert but I’m learning slowly. 😉  Mike (4/4) was in town so we went out for drinks.  I love it when he comes to town cuz I always end up going to places that I’ve never been to before, which is great cuz as much as I love my regulars, it’s always nice to frequent new establishments.  We went to the Paramount Room and Bluebird and I will definitely visit them again.

We are finishing the work at the temp job faster than they expected, so instead of 5 weeks it’s only a week and a half of work.  I’m not too bummed about it.  My unemployment got renewed and I’ll be ok until World Cup starts.

Custodian Kiki

Operation Job Search is in serious effect.  I’m trying my hardest to find any job so I won’t have to leave in may.  I applied for jobs yesterday that I would never dream of doing but whatever right?  Madison’s atmosphere really depresses me so I’d rather be at a job that depressed me for a little bit than being in a city that did.

You should listen to that Asides Eastsides Bassdrive Session that I posted yesterday if you haven’t already.  Really good stuff.

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.
