My bones ache after all of that. My spirit hurts and my eyes are dry. Who knew that making a mix was so exhausting? I mean, all you're doing really is looking and listening, clicking and dragging, but it's actually a somewhat tedious process that – as enjoyable as it is creating a cohesive selection of quite varied tracks – really does feel endless at times. It's the finished result I guess that is the reward. But then again, matching songs up with one another and creating the perfect stitching between the songs is really fun. It's an easy-to-do creative thing; with no actual making of music involved, all it requires really is a good ear and a little bit of patience. Of course, I am just an amateur, so I mean no disrespect to those who make proper mixes or who DJ and stuff like that. Skilful stuff innit.

In some ways, thank FUCK November is over. It's kind of a rubbish month that I can't really stand. So let's celebrate the end of another shitty November and usher in the magic of December, with all its half-promise of snow, crisp days, family togetherness and, of course, Christmas and all its trimmings. Wahoo!
