On loving Boston
Alex Dupnik explains why Boston completes her:
Boston is a city that does not show its cards right away. It is a place that you need to spend time getting to know. As a student, I would walk around the city and "get lost" on purpose. I was able to discover the little pocket parks of Post Office Square, Louisburg Square, and Ramler Park dispersed all over the city. One of the first times I began wandering around the city as a freshman, I found myself walking down Huntington Ave towards the Prudential. As I walked beside the historic Symphony Hall, I saw a glimpse of a tree lined "street". As you walk down the tree street, an overwhelming sense of relaxation takes over. The stresses of being away from my family and all of my school work was immediately subdued.
