For a while after visiting Boston when I was 12, I swore I would move there. To me, it felt like New York, but smaller, cleaner, and more approachable. It seemed like the place where I could live out a glamorous city girl life and be happy. That is, until I got rejected from all the colleges in Boston.
These days, while I still listen to “Boston” by Augustana on repeat sometimes, I don’t idealize it anymore. Now it’s a city that I plan to visit to take a break from NYC and enjoy its many cultural offerings.
