What is life like as an accountant (Canadaian)?

I'm starting a Bachelor of Commerce program at Mount Allison University in Canada this Fall and I'm thinking of focusing on accounting. What's it like to be an accountant? What are the pros and cons? I just don't
have a really good idea of their lifestyle, which makes me have doubts about becoming one. I would really like it if I got a response from a Canadian accountant, since life might be very different from American ones.
