As of tomorrow, I will have been in Boston for 2 whole months. It’s been an amazing journey so far and I’ve been pleasantly surprised about how (for the most part) it’s been a seemless transition.
Sure there have been a few hiccups but that’s to be expected with a move to a bigger city.
Overall it’s going well. I’m enjoying my graduate school classes and while my job has it’s challenges, I do enjoy working with my kids. They bring their own joy to my world everyday.
I’m really falling in love with this city, with Boston. It’s a fantastic fit for me right now and down the road. I’m thrilled that I’m commited to being here for the next two years and hopefully longer.
I think some of my favorite things about this city are it’s kind people and natural beauty.
I know that the Northeast has a reputation for their residents being a bunch of hard asses that lack couth and politeness.
Not sure who started that rumor but that’s simply not true.
I’ve met the most kind, passionate and honest people up there. People who have been helpful to me (even perfect strangers in the hustle of it all) when I made a wrong stop on the train or got a little lost. Northern gentlemen who have held the door for me, offered me their seat on a rush hour filled train or simply tipped their hat and smiled in passing on the street.
Boston is truly a beautiful city. I mean look at Harvard Medical School…I realy hope the people who work and attend there actually get to enjoy the gorgeous campus from time to time.
And the sunsets are nothing short of amazing.
And the surrounding states offer just as much beauty. Last month, I camped and hiked up in Maine and enjoyed the charming small town of Hallowell and it’s Hobbit Trail.
Everyday here is a new adventure and while sometimes I’m homesick and missing my peeps in NC, I know I’m supposed to be here.
And that’s thrilling and makes me so happy!
