Why You Should Quit Your Job And Get Out Of Montreal Right Now

Well, first of all - because it's cold. According to [enter weather channel of your choice] we'll have 20 cm snow by next week, and a sunny 20 degrees the next day... G-d I love Montreal's bipolar weather.

All joking aside, if you haven't done so already - get out of town!


I was walking by this abandoned building the other day and there was a sign on the door that read:

"If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It's lethal."

I stood there, pondering at the thought then quickly remembered I had to get back to work, since my half an hour lunch break was almost over. Do you see what's wrong here?

Schedules are meant to put order in your life, not control it. Do yourself a favour and go explore the world that we live in, before it's too late. I was in my first year of University when I decided, out of impulse one day to get up and move to Shanghai.  Just like many other people my age, I didn't know what I wanted to do and needed some inspiration. That trip changed me entering my early years of adulthood and if you ask me now, would I do it any differently? Yes. I would've stayed longer.

1. You're young, and you need to embrace it.

2. It's adventurous.

3. You will experience things you'll never get the chance to if you stick around.

4. You will get out of your comfort zone.

5. You will learn things school can't teach you.

6. You'll discover who you are and who you want to be.

7. You learn how to adjust to different people.

8. Time is our only real asset: don't waste it.

9. There are 196 Countries in the world, and you've probably only seen a fraction of that.

10. You'll regret it if you don't. (One day you'll wake up and be 80 years old and it'll be too late.)
