I personally can't stand losing.  And coming second means you were the first loser.  Just a little more effort and you could have been first ... it eats me up!

That's a very good idea.  I have never been horribly competitive, I guess, but meditation really calmed me down considerably.  You don't want a heart attack at 40 Cheeks!

I used to do yoga quite a bit actually ... and never really liked it haha.  But i did find it relaxing, so i think is something that i need to get back into.

I never did Yoga myself, but my gf is really pissed that I'm not trying it.  It makes sense I guess, because I have the worst posture in the world.  It is so bad that people don't really see my true height and are usually surprised when I straighten up.  Now that's BAD.

eh ... how come?

because of the salary thing?  I've been trying to do a long-term cost-benefit analysis of goign to a US school vs. a Canadian school for a while now, and so far, all i've come up with is that I don't know which would be best.

There's a lot of things you have to look at.  Just looking at starting salary isn't going to give you a good idea of things.

I think he was talking about taxes.  Problem is, these really aren't that much lower in many big cities of the US.  The outlook is especially not clear considering even UofT is downright a bargain when compared with US schools.  That does not preclude ME, however, from bitching about their cost.

exactly ... compare toronto taxes with NYC taxes!

plus, there's a standard of living (apart from a much higher cost of living) that is present in big US cities that isn't there in Canada cities.  i think it's much more complicated than just taxes and salaries.
