If your life had a soundtrack, what would it be?
So, here’s how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool…
"Hey Hey" The Planet Smashers
"Start Me Up" The Rolling Stones
"I'll Melt with You" Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
"Try Honesty" Billy Talent
"Gettin' Air" Chixdiggit
"Ordinary Day" Great Big Sea (ha, nice)
"Bodies" Sex Pistols
"You Can't Hurry Love" Diana Ross and the Supremes (huh...)
Getting Back Together:
"Sugar High" (Coyote Shivers) Empire Records
"Filthy/Gorgeous" Scissor Sisters
Wild Sex Scene:
"Bad Moon Rising" Creedance Clearwater Revival
Birth of a child:
"Misinformed" Soul Coughing (how promising...)
"This Sudden Injury" City and Colour
"Hey Ya" Outcast (sweet. just saying, sweet)

...long time no see. I'm sorry I've neglected you so. I've done no better to myself anyway. But alas, this will all change! School is done, year one of the career is done. It's Anne time!
Step 1: get the eff in shape, for real this time
Step 2: spend more time outdoors
Step 3: plan a fun trip
Step 4: actually do all these things since you've just written them so now you're bound to them. (after all, it's the 21st century and the internet counts as a real place to write things)
and that's my update.
how are you?

I figured it out! The secret to finding motivation for jogging!
Step One: Have two weeks before you're going to a stripping class with a coworker who is turning 50 and you KNOW can show you up.
Step Two: Buy a super-cute, stripey, yet very unforgiving, clingy dress.
Step Three: Tell yourself that passing out on the sidewalk will only lead to bruises you'll have to explain in a very embarrassing manner.
and time to watch Miami Ink...maybe do some sit ups...maybe.
and question the itching sensation on my arm...odd.

So, I never use LJ anymore. oops
but I just spent a killer night with viv and LJ makes me think of viv, so I thought I'd post.
Dear Vivian Thomas,
I love you.
We drank beer and ate pizza, and watched TV and played Wii and it was awesome.
Pretty much, my life is great.
I have a job.
I have free chocolate.
I have an amazing boy.
I have an amazing Viv.
I have the pretty pretty sun.
All of a sudden, my life is all different.
It's like my school life was years away, and all of a sudden, I'm a grown up and it's awesome.
I love Viv!
Even more than beer!!

Well, like a bat out of hell it showed up.
The real world.
And let me tell you, all those people who told us it wouldn't be as good as our youth...
Were SO WRONG!
Screw them, the real world fucking rocks!
Within the span of one week, I had interviewed for and started an internship.
Within a week and a half of interning, I was offered a job.
Yesterday I wrote my final university exam.
Today, I officially started as Account Coordinator at ACLC Inc.
And get this, I'm working on the Hershey's Canada account.
That's right, Anne is working on advertising for chocolate!!
The cabinet next to my desk has a shelf with a post-it that reads "OK to take"
You know what's on that shelf?
It just sits there, waiting to be eaten, by anyone.
Turns out, working your ass off in school really does pay off.
I couldn't be happier. Seriously.
I'm almost afraid to think of how happy I am because it feels like I might wake up soon.
Other fun things that have happened recently:
-We "took out the clients for a drink". i.e. we drank at the agency (there's a keg in the lounge, and usually a bottle of wine), then went to the Brant House and drank with the client, then I went somewhere else to meet other people and ended up going to a vodka bar with the guy who had hired me the day before, had a 3oz glass of vodka. Somehow got home and made it to work the next day for 9am.
-Went to see "Explosions in the Sky". Apparently they're a band. I wouldn't know. According to Marc: "Anne, you were the drunkest girl in Toronto that night" I had a fucking blast! I somehow got home from that one too and also made it to work for 9am the next day.
-Been to some random house parties and what not.
-Finished college AND university. (minus one essay and an internship report, but those will be done soon) Holy crap, I never thought these last two years would ever finish, but then they did.
-Found out Warped Tour is on a Saturday. Flogging Molly and Bad Religion are playing. SO STOKED!
Well, that's my update. woo.

ways to make yourself realize your life is about to change:
1. Get your grad photos taken
2. Start your internship
3. Do 1. and 2. on the same day....
neat. weird, but neat.
Welcome to grown up land Anne. At least your pretty grey dress pants are comfortable.
As for other random updates
I get my life back in a few weeks, there are not enough words to express how stoked I am
I've really been enjoying the frequency of house parties lately. We should keep this up.
I really don't want to do any of my work, but I should.
I'm madly in love with the boys from Heroes. Oh my god. Really.
I watch entirely too much television instead of working.
I'm surprisingly unstressed considering the horrendous mountain of work staring at me.
I'm really looking forward to warm weather.
Spike died a little while ago. It was sad. But I'm going to get tetras soon.
I bought a huge box of Bits N Bites. So delicious.
I'm running out of things to say.
Yup, just ran out.

You know, I've got to say I'm really not a fan of getting sick when i need to do work. This constant feeling in my stomach of needing to vomit is not entertaining in the least.
However, what I have to say I am a fan of is seeing Rancid live. Two nights in a row. Because this is what I do instead of saving my money or doing my work. I think it a worth while investment.
I figure I just spent 100$ on one assignment, and now I'm going to be pushing up to 50$ on these other two I have to hand in tomorrow, I might as well do something to enjoy my money...while I still have some.
In other news, my head hurts and I don't want to work.
Shocking I know.
Luckily, this time tomorrow, I'll be finished this damn semester from hell.
I never thought I could function on so little sleep for so long, but apparently I've proven myself wrong on that account. Sleep is really rather unnecessary it would seem.
Nonetheless, I miss sleep.
I also already miss Mr. Tim Armstrong
Maybe they'll tour again on the new CD.
In fact, I insist they do.
I also insist I go see Flogging Molly on March 6th
yes, yes I insist.
I think I'll buy my tickets very soon.
I wish this had wasted more time.
I really don't want to work on my portfolio.

|12:20 am - my this was entertaining|
I see nothing, though I'll gladly pretend to look like Gisele Bundchen.

|03:36 pm - Please please please won't you help|
Ok, once again it's that time of year. You know, when I have to create an entire ad campaign.
And once again, I need your help.
I'm doing an awareness campaign for the rising use of crystal meth and the sponsor is PUMA.
For this campaign, I need to create a media plan. This means, I have to chose where I want to spend my $3.5 million budget,.
So, I want to know where you guys are at, that way, I know where to show you stuff.
Also, I will need to create an event of some sort, or some kind of unconventional nonsense.
(i.e. side walk drawing, stupid.ca taking over everything, andy warhol riding around in a pink car, etc)
So, if you happen to have any ideas of what you would pay attention to, or what you think might be cool, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
18-25 years old
that's about it.
So, if you could all please, please, please complete the following little teeny-tiny survey, it would really really help me out.
This campaign is worth 100% of my grade, so you know, it's kind of important
