Goodbye USA, Hello Canada

Posted by Andrew Trusty on August 30, 2008

I’ve officially left the country. I flew into Toronto today with two huge pieces of luggage stuffed with pretty much everything I’ll need to get through the Master’s program at the University of Toronto. The city is surprisingly warm given that the last time I came here it was covered in 3 feet of snow but at least it isn’t as hot as Atlanta.

I’m looking forward to jumping into the Master’s program and finding an interesting research project to work on. I’m joining the HCI group (part of the DGP) at Toronto under Khai Truong, a fellow Georgia Tech alumn who was actually at Tech at the same time as I was. It’s going to be interesting trying to balance my side projects with my graduate studies – maybe I’ll even find a way to combine the two. Ah well, time to go explore my new city!
