I’m always fascinated by the staying power of some tracks. I’m currently listening to Wormhole and it’s still soooooo good. Slip Thru just came on. 22 years later and I can’t believe how much this track still slaps. 🥰
I’m writing a test and just vibin’. I really just want to go to a dnb show and dance.
I just got internet at my apartment this weekend. I have it at school but dang, a month without internet in your home is rough yo.
That was me every night.
Anyways, school officially starts tomorrow. Gotta get introduced to the school as the new ALT and all that jazz. In the meantime I’m not actually listening to anything new, just cleaning, making worksheets and listening to old faves. It’s not hard to be productive when you’ve got Matrix playing in the background. 🙂
I didn’t disappear. I’ve been tucked away studying Japanese. I’ve actually been quite disciplined. I wake up, work out and then put myself in school for about 5 hours. I was never a good student and still am not, but one thing I definitely know is the benefit of understanding the structure of the language of the students I’m teaching. It helps immensely in the classroom because you can predict their errors, so I’m grinning and bearing it.
Summer is coming along nicely, it’s going by so fast though! 3 more weeks and then I’m off to Japan. I’m beside myself trying to figure out how one packs to go away for one year. I feel like I had become quite good at the short stays. 6 months is nothing. You know you’ll be back soon enough so you just make sure you have enough clothes and little trinkets that will help you create a home away from home. 1 year though, you try and make sure you bring your home with you. They recommend that I don’t bring too much stuff with me and buy stuff there and then get my family to ship stuff to me… um that won’t work for me. I’m not rich. It’s so expensive to ship stuff to other countries. I sent a small box of clothes to my cousin in London which had like 5 things I got for her kiddos at Target and it cost $50. I’d rather pay for the extra suitcase now instead.
Anyways, enough whinging. I was just letting you know what I’ve been up to. I haven’t really been finding any mixes that I felt like I would die if I didn’t share with you, hence the lack of posts. I’ve just been listening to old stuff. I love the feeling of reintroducing old tunes to the rotation. So many fond memories.
I’m going to Chicago today to visit the homies. Came across this Soultec mix. I haven’t listened to it yet but the tracklist looks decent and I usually like Soultec mixes so hopefully this adds some joy to my roadtrip. 🙂

Man. My weekend was ridiculously graffiti filled. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of hanging out and just kicking it with my friends. The Ironlak US team was here to do a legal wall and it came out pretty amazing. George is part of the team and Jeremy works for Ironlak so I was definitely Ironlak til I die this weekend. LOL. I won’t post pics, I’ll just wait til they are done with the video and post it then cuz it’ll be way cooler than my rinky dink photos. Fun times with my friends for sure. That’s all I usually ask for. 😉
