boston : where it always feels like fall to me and where my heart always seem to find a confident pulse


ah, boston. what a magical place where many dreams reside...dreams that are a
temporary stop on the way to the dream. ceej and i visited institutions and businesses
that will help guide us on our way to creating the life we've always wanted together.
we toured and found out useful and exciting information...can't wait for the next few
months to start on the real dream, the one that makes me most alive just thinking about it.
it's been difficult to concentrate on school because i'm just so ready to jump in.

boston was lovely for us. cool weather, familiar graveyards, new restaurants,
a little shopping, and great views as we walked through the city.
beacon hill is such a favorite of mine. lucky people who get to live there.

my knees are shaking with excitement and the anxiety to get started on dreams,
to get living what i used to think impossible. last night i asked for more courage
than i've ever experienced in my life. as excited as i am i know my demons, my self-doubt...
but i'm so ready to grow up, and claim my brave, ambitious heart.

thank you, boston, for getting my wheels spinning and my heart pulsing.

{love graveyards. and love feist's graveyard... "bring 'em all back to life"}

Im so excited for you! One of my favorite places in the world is in those Boston graveyards.

I can't wait to hear about your plans. Any hints? I have to admit that after our conversation I made some changes to my life "plans" and I am so happy that I did. So I guess I have you to thank for that!

Oh I love Boston too! Was just there this past spring, and hope to be back in the fall. It's a great place for sure.

You're right, this is the city where dreams come true. Mine was here too.
I would love to met you, but I know you had a full schedule. Maybe next time!
Did you like HBS? I'm in GSAS, but everything in Harvard is very close and sometimes I visit HBS for conferences.
