Thoughts

Lately I've been thinking a lot about maybe moving into a new apartment... I love my apartment, but I'm craving change. There are some really cool ones I'm interested in looking into- like the 2 story with bedroom loft layout in the complex Mark and Lance live in. They are a bit more expensive, but I'm still actively looking into it. Not too far from where I am now- more south, near the 22 and Grand. We'll see what happens there. I've also been thinking a lot about getting a house. I know it's not anywhere near feasible at the moment, but it's something I'd like to do in the next couple of years. It would be amazing to have my own place that's actually mine.

Downsizing and actually following through with some plans to build myself new furniture are currently on the front burner. I want to build a slightly lofted bed with a cozy workspace below that includes a lot of storage space, placement of all my current and future deejay equipment, and has the bed part not super high off the ground. I drew up the plans before I moved to California, just haven't executed them yet. I'm excited to start working on this :)

I've also got a list of some things I'm hoping to purchase in the next few months... 2 Pioneer CDJ-900s, some new Ikea bookshelves, a wine fridge to properly cellar my preciouses, a trash compactor, and possibly a new energy efficient freezer-on-the-bottom double-door fridge to cut back on noise and energy consumption. I also really want to get the controlled-by-your-iPhone Phillips LED bulb system. Maybe I'll end up with that first. I dunno. I've been really good about keeping up with work hours and doing side jobs in my off time, so I should be able to afford all of that stuff by spring!

I'm told that a work order has been put in to fix hose fountain, but the company our complex hired to do all our fountain maintenance has not made any moves yet. Hopefully that will get remedied soon as well.

sPiN! sPiN!'s 9 year anniversary starts on Thursday!!! We're going to have special shows every week through the end of November, details forthcoming. I've got a ton of programming work to do before then, though, so hopefully we can launch our new show interface in time. I just need to make it happen. This is my baby. I'm excited to celebrate 9 years of this marriage of things I love- music and web development. The great friendships and memories of the past 9 years through sPiN! are something I truly cherish. Looking forward to many more years of awesome!

In other news, today my cousin Jim and Amber are getting married! The wedding will be the first time my entire immediate family and step family are all at the same place at the same time. My mom is in from Georgia, my full brother Kevin and my dad will be there, as well as my stepmom, my half bro Keenan, and my stepbro Brian/Keith. It should be interesting to say the least. The wedding is also forcing all of my aunts and uncles, who all seem to have some kind of drama with each other, to man up and hang out together without excuses. I'm expecting an eventful day- hopefully in a good way! I'm excited for Jim and Amber- they are both really awesome and I'm looking forward to being able to call Amber my cousin :) Welcome to the family!!!

There's a lot of awesome about to happen, and I'm diving in! Let's see how successful I am in a few months... LOL

A house is also on my agenda. I think for me it is partly about finally finding my own space that is mine from the start and is set up my way. Cleaning my current place and reorganizing it is a step toward that. Make it mine.
