You do you boo boo.
Living alone is a big step in any student’s life, and as amazing as it is, it can also sometimes be stressful and lonely. To keep things in perspective, we’ve taken this opportunity to list our favorite ways that living alone actually make you an increasingly complete person (#adulting):
You become more responsible.
You learn how to cook.
You learn how to fix things.
You have time to self-reflect (no we don’t mean selfies) and discover.
You learn how to depend on yourself and entertain yourself.
You can order delivery at any hour (let’s be honest, that is a luxury).
You can decorate however you please.
You can do things on your own time, and have no one to blame but yourself for procrastination.
You don’t have to answer to anyone when you come in at all hours of the night.
THE BATHROOM. Never feel rushed, sing in the shower as loud as you please, and don’t ever put a toilet paper roll back on the holder.
Welcome to Montreal.
You first week in a new city is easily one of the most enchanting experiences- especially in Montreal. To ensure you get a taste of the city and what it’s like to be a Montrealer, we’ve created a list of 10 must-do activities your first week in the city:
Eat poutine ‘til you drop
Get lost on the STM – it’s inevitable
Go get your student card (and the photo that will haunt you for the next 4 years.)
Go out every night of the week – Sunday or Wednesday, there’s a place for any and every day.
Try doing as many Montreal tourist sites as possible– this way when your friends come visit you because you now live in the hottest city- you know exactly where to take them! Check out this list from MTL Blog for 101 fun ideas.
Sit in the front and have a friendly convo with your uber driver– only in mtl!
Drive a Bixi around the city (maybe this will help you avoid getting lost on the STM, again.)
Continue the party at one of Montreal’s after hours clubs, 3.am? No, no. no. I suggest checking out Stereo or Circus.
Try out a Montreal Shisha lounge, my personal suggestion being Arabesque Shisha Lounge (best food and shisha!).
And last, but certainly not least, order takeout from Chef on Call- open daily until 3am, this will become your premier takeout spot for anytime. As they like to say “for when you’re out getting turnt or in getting learnt”.
