A Boston Love Letter (aka- 4th Term Antidote)

So if you know me then you know that I love, love, LOVE Boston. As Dr. Boyfriend points out it was my first real city to fall in love with so it has a special place in my heart. (And bonus we met and fell in love there too.) Anyhow, I spent the weekend in the Boston area and got to relive all my favorite Boston memories with a good friend from undergrad. Drive down Charles River.... check. Blueberry Ale from Boston Beerworks.... check. Red Sox game at Fenway.... check. Hands down the best frozen yogurt anywhere (and I would know, I've looked- no one else makes carrot cake blended fro yo) from Angora Cafe..... CHECK! Rewatching "Good Will Hunting" after a local grown veggie meal and nice bottle of wine with good friends..... Priceless. (Thank you K and R!) It was a wonderful, nostalgic, blissful weekend.

And as if it can't get any better it was sandwiched between camp which deserved its own post and my family coming to California to visit. So in short, life it good.

I have not studied half as much as I had planned to but I still have 2+ weeks until I go back to the rock and there is something to be said for downtime and enjoying life outside of medical school. I'll be back to the grind soon enough so I'm really not beating myself up about not doing First Aid Questions every day as I had planned.

So here is to summer, great friends, a loving family, Boston memories and new beginnings in California. I am truly blessed. Life is good.

  1. Awww! I'm from Boston and, you know, growing up outside the city is not the same as living in it. I lived in the city proper (Cambridge and Fenway) for 6 years, but after a while I transferred my boredom with Massachusetts to Boston and got a bit antsy to explore other cities. Then I cam to Grenada. Now I really APPRECIATE Boston and love it :)

    Angora Cafe = excellent. Sadly, the other great restaurants nearby BURNED DOWN (El Pelon, Thorton's etc) but they put up a really nice mural (did you see it?) while they rebuild.

    Glad to see you made it through 4th term in one piece... I'm just about to start!
