Throwback Thursday: Boston Bound

Posted Apr 04 2013 8:20pm

Before we go back too far, a quick recap of my past few days…


angel food cake in honor of Easter - Ryan and I traded Easter egg hunting for apartment hunting


my momma’s house - we ate homemade meatball calzones and caught up on life


apartment hunt done – after looking at 10 complexes, we put an offer on one and it was accepted!

4-3-13 Run

speedy run with Molly - I’m excited to start a new Wednesday tradition


Whole Foods lunch - I was a hungry, hungry hippo today and the lunch I packed wasn’t sufficient

And now for a trip down memory lane…  College.

For my freshman year of college I attended a small liberal arts school in a town outside of Richmond.  It was conveniently close to home [just under 2 hours] and the classes were small so I was able to build close relationships with my professors.

After a few months of “toughing it” I went home for winter break and told my parents that I was not happy and wanted to transfer – not a big surprise considering that I commuted via I- 95 to home every.single.weekend.  I was excelling in my courses but I wasn’t enjoying myself.  The biggest local attraction was Walmart and the weekends consisted primarily of frat parties.  That may be the ideal situation for some, to each their own, but it wasn’t for me.

I began researching my options and ended up applying to 10 schools, all located throughout the mid-Atlantic and the northeast.  Come springtime, I was shocked when I was accepted to 8 of the schools and had no clue where I wanted to go…  Until I toured Boston and I fell in love with the city.  That fall I started my first semester as a sophomore at Boston University.

I haven’t been back since graduation [May 2011] but thanks to a late Christmas gift from my momma, Ryan and I will be making a trip up this spring – I just need to book our tickets :D

Question:  Where did you go to college?

Question:  Have you ever been to Boston?
