Living in this city has been on my mind for the past three years, and now it could actually happen. A surreal thought. When a dream crosses over to a probable reality, you almost don't know what to do. And I think about missing my family and so many of my Boston friends, but I also have many friends in DC and the chance to pursue a career that I have always wanted. And so I jump. And hope that I can finally catch that brass ring.
In the midst of this job business, I found some lovely aspects to the city, which made me want to move all the more.
