This is my month end report. I’ve been living in Manitoba for about a month and a half, and here you’ll find a compilation of things I have learned so far.
1. If there is any construction going on at the Superstore, the world stops.
2. Even if it’s not winter yet, many Manitoban’s will dress like it is.
3. People drive slow here.
4. People always think they have the right of way while crossing any street, anywhere.
5. No one says “dinner” in regards to supper. It’s more a lunch thing here, and it’s a little weird to me.
6. My health “card” won’t be a card. It will be a piece of paper. I was shocked when I learned this, but it will be okay. I’ve accepted it.
7. Laundry detergent is a lot more expensive here than in Ontario.
8. Gas is a lot cheaper here than in Ontario.
9. The weather is actually warmer to me than it appears. Less moisture in the air means that I am warmer in general. When it’s 8 degrees out, it actually feels like 13-14 degrees to me. It’s a wonderful thing.
10. Although I sometimes feel like I’m in in the middle of nowhere, and a little lost and lonely sometimes, I haven’t and will not regret my move to Brandon, Manitoba. Ever.
