- Today is my mom’s birthday which means absolutely nothing to you.
- I’m getting so pumped for Halloween. It’s FINALLY next week!!!!!!!!!! What are you guys being? Doing? Tricking?? TREATING???
- I ran into Dylan and her mom and shopped with them for a little bit
- A sexy/older man winked at me at Whole Foods. WINKED? If someone winks at me I assume they think I’m someone else (probably my sister) with whom a winking relationship would exist.
- I wish I had a dog. An English bulldog to hug and love. I have a lot of pet love to give. I have a lot of love to give in general and it makes my heart feel like exploding.
- I hate this week so much it’s turning me into a madwoman. I studied primates so long today I started tweaking out.
- But at least my nails glow in the dark ☾ ☾ ☾

No problem! Good luck with everything :)
Yessss! McGill is great. Great classes, great city, great campus, although it is very steep and hilly - avoid living in upper-res at all costs. The nightlife is amazing, etc etc. It’s very much a student city; when you go out at night, the streets are flooded with people your age. The first year you will do all the first year stuff (clubs on St. Laurent, $2 chow mein, etc) and eventually you’ll leave the bubble and start venturing into the rest of the city.
The school itself didn’t trigger anything for me, it was just a bad time in my life. I will say though, I did find it a bit cliquey. While UofT is a bit more diverse, McGill was a lot of people from Toronto, so it was just a repeat of high school. Everyone stayed in their same groups, which it made it hard to break into in the beginning. Eventually you make friends, just like any place. Anyway, I can only speak of Mcgill compared to UofT, they are both amazing schools where you will get an excellent education. The thing with UofT is that you are more integrated into the city life, and school is just one of your things. Whereas, at McGill I was only associated with the school, and didn’t know much else. I probably would have if I stayed longer though. If you have a friend that already goes to Mcgill, you should see if you can visit for a weekend, see if you like the vibes? Good luck xx
