1. People will relentlessly make fun of you for saying "washroom" even though their terms are even more illogical.

4. In America, there are absurd costs and barriers for what you thought was a basic, natural right: health.


You've thought about paying for the flight home and using your holy Health Card because the total expenses is still probably cheaper.

6. And search far and wide for some decent poutine.

21. You'll feel weirdly sentimental whenever Nelly Furtado or Nickelback comes on the radio.

Again, even if you don't like them. Because you simply feel a unique emotional connection to them.

23. And how thoughtful it really is when someone says "sorry" or "pardon."
