Amanda the Architect

documenting the projects and inspirations of an unemployed intern architect with some ambition and lots of time

So Long, Canada

It’s official. Moving day is here! I am currently on my way back home to Missouri. I have already made a list of things I will really miss about Vancouver, and I thought it would be a good idea to list things I’ve missed about Missouri while in Canada.

Here it is:

  • JCrew
  • Netflix
  • Old friends
  • Anthropologie
  • Air conditioning
  • Frequent road trips
  • Owning, not renting
  • Alcohol at grocery stores
  • Using credit cards online
  • Amazon.com (.ca is horrible)
  • Being a citizen (less paperwork)
  • A yard (for our dog and a garden)
  • Having a car (for the weekend trips)
  • Less expensive food (everything’s cheaper in general)
  • Not having to share a building with neighbors (turn up the tunes!)
