actually you sound like you are not confused at all!
so ppl have been pressuring you to stay huh? well don't yield okay? One of my biggest regrets is not going to the east for my undergrad.. ppl around me were telling me to stay with what's familiar..I was fool to listen to them.. seriously, if you want to work in the states, I say go for it...
hey cheeks.. but if you decide to come to vancouver.. you'll love it tho
I worked with a bunch of ppl from TO and none of them want to leave.. they fell in love with Vancouver and you too will fall under the spell when you get here
