Hello, welcome to Anticipating Nowhere #45. Because work has been so crazy I've been planning shows a few weeks ahead so it can feel strange writing a blog about a show I created several weeks back.....so I won't as I can't fully relate to that moment in time any more.
Things have moved so quickly this year and whilst it has been an absolute shit for a lot of it there have been some major, positive, changes in my life too. New experiences, new friendships and new life lessons all mean I won't exactly look back at 2020 with rose-tinted glasses but I certainly won't put it down as a 'bad' year.
I've a couple more shows left before the end of the year and they will both feature music released in December because I've had some more time to be able to focus on the mixes recently.
I've also debated going fortnightly, not because I don't have the time to do them weekly or because I don't enjoy doing it. I always make the time as I love doing it! I was starting to wonder if putting them out every week, with so many other great shows out there, makes it easier to miss AN when it goes out. I'm still undecided so will see what the new year brings.
I hope anyone who reads this is keeping well and that you enjoy this mix.
