I’ve always been good at directions and navigation with a few notable exceptions. When I was visiting Chicago, I continuously got confused about Eastbound and Westbound highway exits because the lake was in the North, whereas the Toronto lake is in the south

More recently I have gotten turned around in the subway underground a few times. I mix up north and south and find it really hard to wrap my head around it sometimes. There is something in my head that makes me believe my right arm knows which way is north and once decided, I can’t convince it otherwise.

Today is one of the first times I actually got on the southbound subway rather than my usual northbound.

I’m going the wrong way, and I didn’t even notice it for 4 stops because I was finishing up some phone emails with my attention distracted.

How can the north out trains be on my left side. Left is south.
