and dang philly, you start to get really ghetto 2 blocks past my apartment. and the summers are so humid and rainy, mosquitoes are feasting on my legs, and streets stink of sewage in certain areas.
but albeit these dramatic differences from westwood, i do feel myself becoming more at home here. parts of center city (downtown area) are magnificent and the campus is beautiful. i love my apartment and its location, though i really do miss my family and friends back in la. can’t believe i’m officially starting grad school next week! hope i finish in less than 5 years, that would preeettyy awesome.
east coast bucket list:
1. cherry blossom festival at DC
2. lobster season in maine
3. bird watching in cape cod
4. times square for new years
5. broadway musical
6. nfl game (ugh, i don’t want to root for the eagles and vick, but we’ll see…)
