One of my favorite quotes where she nails it:

"The neighborhoods of Boston are awesome. Especially Roslindale. I have been to so many shitty community meetings. Where there’s always that guy with "more of a comment than a question". And that woman who says the same things every time. BUT PEOPLE ALWAYS SHOW UP."

I sometimes I think that Boston isn’t actually the best place to live on earth taking into account all objective measure of superiority, and then I read something like this and it reminds me of how wrong it is to think such things. Good luck to you in all future endeavors.
