Moved to Boston

Monday, February 11th, 2008

So I got a job at BBN Technologies in Boston, MA at the beginning of January, and moved my stuff out here in a giant 26-foot U-Haul (despite having very little stuff… ) on the 31st! Which, that was a lot of fun. Been adjusting to having a ‘real’ job for a week now, but the people there are pretty cool.

However, its been an interesting adjustment for me. Boston is such a huge place with people all around at all hours of the day.. I mean, you don’t get stuck in traffic at 11PM in Kalamazoo! And of course all the streets are going in a million different ways.. though in many respects, it feels like you’re driving on a racetrack sometimes, which is really fun.

One thing that I’ve really come to dislike is the huge amount of full-serve gas stations around here… its so annoying. I’m not 100% sure why, but I hate giving my credit card to people (though, you could argue that waitresses and such do the same thing, and it doesn’t bother me). Anyways.. its weird, but I’m enjoying myself. More later.
