Updates and Music  
So... I spoke to my work people yesterday and quit my position. If i don't get one of the other positions I'm waiting on news from before April 17th, I'll be taking a paycut to go back to the PSC. And I've never been so happy to potentially take a paycut. I need the eff outta here, and I'm finally getting out!

The apartment is still fantastic, though living downtown comes with its own downsides... When it's easy to get to all the bars and such, well, you catch my drift! :)

Still waiting to hear back from DFO, and finally people at Finance are doing what I need them to in order for them to pull me into positions there. So stuff is moving.

Partied wildly this past weekend cause I got my backpay cheque. Yes, I probably should have put a chunk of that towards debts, but I decided, well, that I didn't want to. And I had a freaking wonderful weekend because of it! Friday saw me at Dean's for a while, then Rob and Chris' for Rob's little birthday bash, and then off to Strandherd for a party with Alex Vlad's high school buddies.... And then back to my place for the rest of the night and morning... Saturday had me sleeping all day, then off to Erica's to welcome her back to our country... I always enjoy those parties, if only to see the people I haven't seen in ages. I WOULD very much like to reconnect with some of the other people who haven't been showing up to those parties, but I think that may happen sooner rather than later.

I saw Nich the other day. The guy completely cut me out of his life about a year ago. Seriously, took me off his Facebook friends, stopped returning calls, stopped returning messages, blocked me on MSN. Was weird to see him, with other friends, so forced to stand there and listen to us chat. Wonder whatever the heck possessed him to do that.... Again, I suppose. Guy can bite me.

Anyway, life's mostly positive, so I'd like to stay that way too!!!

Here's some more music I recommend you all take some time to check out!


Scouting for Girls - I Wish I Was James Bond (Sorry, they turned off embedding... so annoying)


This next one's a little older (a year old or something) but it's still one of the greater ones! :D Yelle - Je Veux te Voir... And besides, who could not like that Happy Face shirt, and girls working out to fun music?




I recently discovered this song... Two of my favourite mainstream artists - Alicia Keyes and Jack White (from White Stripes) - get together and, as I'm sure you can imagine, create beautiful music! Alicia Keyes & Jack White - Another Way to Die.





I visit this music blog called The World Forgot that I rather enjoy. Always very interesting music posted by its author. That being said, he recently posted about the Arcade Fire. My favourite part of that post - the collaboration between David Bowie and The Arcade Fire on Wake Up. This is like super old news, I remember reading about this collaboration when I discovered Arcade Fire for the very first time. Bowie's pretty much always been a fan of the bad... Anyway, it was neat to actually hear the collaboration, and I thought I would share it with you.

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE POST ABOUT THE ARCADE FIRE

The fourth link in the post is the Bowie collaboration. Highly recommended! If you take some time to read the comments below the post, you'll notice a link to HERE where there's a video of The Arcade Fire preparing for a show and doing Neon Bible to warm up and yet another version of Wake Up as their first number in the show. Kind of makes me want to see them live.

1) you should seem them live, they are approximately 800x better, especially if you manage one of their church shows cause the acoustics coupled with their crazy violins and shit... they make you want to die a little, in a good way ;)

2) I see you soon.

3) I love and miss you muchly.

4) <3

I am sure that I love and miss you greatly as well, but I am not sure who you are!!!
