27 Things You Learn After Moving To Toronto

If you get lost in the PATH, you're going to die in the PATH.

2. At most, you're two degrees of separation from someone from Degrassi.

If you're not friends with someone from Degrassi, you know someone who is friends with someone from Degrassi.


4. And your dream of ever owning a home died the second you saw what kind of houses cost $1 million in the city.

Well, technically it's $999,999, but still.

7. Even if you want to avoid the roads, the TTC offers its own frustrations.

On the bright side, citing a "TTC delay" is a great way to avoid getting in trouble when you're late for work.


12. A lot of people have a weird mental block about crossing the Don River.

Half an hour on the subway to Bloor Village? Sure! A two-minute ride to Broadview station? Ugh, that's so far.


16. If you say you're from Toronto but you're really from Etobicoke, people will judge you.

Same for Scarborough, North York, Thornhill, Pickering, Richmond Hill, Oakville, Burlington, and basically anywhere that isn't Toronto proper.


18. If you ever want to meet every single person who lives in Toronto, just go to High Park during cherry blossom season.

19. If you're unable to make it to the cherry blossoms, don't worry: Everyone in Toronto will also be at the Christmas Market in the Distillery District.

20. Going to Dance Cave is asking for trouble. Fun trouble, but trouble.

If you make it through the night without puking, making out with a rando, or getting thrown out by the bouncers, you have achieved the impossible.

21. But the morning-after brunch will make any crazy Toronto night worth it.

The only problem is settling on one Toronto brunch spot out of the hundreds of tasty options available.

22. You either love the Toronto International Film Festival, or you hate it — there is no in between.

It's either your best chance to meet Tom Hiddleston, or it's a massive inconvenience that makes your commute terrible.
