The weather is pretty rough this time of year. It's been a hard winter for Boston this year. Heavy coats, hats, mittens and weather proof boots are a must or you're going to be freezing and soaked!

I love my city. Being a student in Boston is the greatest mix of college town and metropolitan city! Everything I could ever dream of needing or wanting is essentially within walking distance and none of my friends are more than 20 minutes away on public transportation.
In my immediate area there are some of the top hospitals in the country, so there are a lot of medical professionals around here. Other than that, theres a job to be found in every field here.
