I know there's lots more than St. John's. I don't want to sound like a townie! LOL! I lived in St. John's because I went to MUN.

My Nana was born and raised in Twillingate, so I knew all about The Rock before I moved there.

NL is the most beautiful place on earth. For anyone who's never been, it should be on their bucket list.

I was working on my PhD. I haven't finished it. My department was and still is a complete joke.

I'm still a student on the books, but that's where it ends. I think I'll be restarting my PhD at another university. Kind of sucks because it means I wasted 4 years working on it (non-transferable to another university), but I don't regret the experience of living in NL.

I don't miss the snow though! I moved to ON about a year and a half ago. No more winter driveway shovelling workouts.

that is awful! i didn't realize mun's PhD program was so bad. :( sorry you had that experience.

newfoundland really is the best place on earth. :) i love it here. i was born in and lived in toronto until i was in grade 6. then we moved to newfoundland - my dad is from here - and i fell in love. i have lived in other places - calgary, toronto, dartmouth - since i was an adult but i really love it here.

i really don't love the snow though! we just bought a house last year and we got a snowblower. it is the best money we ever spent! it is wonderful.

Hilarious about the snowblower! When I was there I had to decide between a motorcycle or a snowblower. I couldn't afford both. I bought the bike. I justified it by saying shovelling would keep me in shape.

I have to ask, where are you getting your aquarium supplies, fish, etc.? You're way the heck up in no man's land. I had a hard enough time just getting my dog's kibble some months when the weather was bad. Can't imagine trying to keep a tropical aquarium.

It is hard sometimes to get things but I make do. Most times we go into corner brook (a little over 200 km away) because that is our hometown. But, a new lfs just opened in grand falls (a little less than 200 km away) so we have been going there lately for stuff. The guy there is much nicer and his prices are much more reasonable.

We get cat food in corner brook but since I feed my dogs raw I can get food for them here.

Loads of running around. Haha! Hard to be an animal lover here!

Oh, I also order stuff online for my tank.

I was going to say that you could probably order from Big Al's online. I found whenever I ordered anything from the US, though, it ended up sitting for weeks in the postal 'black hole' that is Dieppe, NB. So ordering within Canada is better, especially if on a tight schedule.

Hard to get veterinary in NL too! I had to send one cat to AVC for jaw surgery (had a tumour) and there are no large breed dog dentists or orthopedic surgeons either. My Lab ended up in Ontario.

But there are plenty of moose where you are. And damn, they're yummy! Seriously, I love moose. Especially in burger form.
