I moved to the Boston area for a PhD program, and I love it. I'm slowly learning to appreciate Boston sports teams, and definitely enjoy running along the Charles. A friend and I recently completed our first marathon, and we are searching for something to do next! Any suggestions welcome!
I am passionate about my research it makes grad school worth it if you love what you are doing. That said, grad school can get pretty intense, and I try to keep a sense of humor and not take myself too seriously : )
