It has been just over a year since I first arrived in Calgary, and I have noticed a few things that have stuck with me from my time there.
1. I sign my emails with "cheers." I know that is not uniquely Canadian, but it isn't very American either. I saw it a lot up there, and I liked it. So now I used it.
2. I say "for sure" all the time. Again, this is not unique to Canada (so few things are, actually), but it is definitely not native to Texas or Louisiana.
3. I still say "eh" at the end of some sentences. This one is more associated with Canada than anything else. I like that I have adopted it, actually.
So there you have it - the lasting effects of my trip to Canada.
There are various others that are not blog worthy, for sure. These are just the ones I want to share.
