I really like Boston. I keep walking around and thinking of other cities that I've lived and worked in and loved. Its wonderful to be able to see friends and wander into amazing bookstores and places like the aquarium. Tomorrow I'm going to talk to my job agency and see what ideas they have for getting me closer to moving here. I know its not going to be easy but I can do this and there's an opening at the Boston Public library that I'm going to apply for.

Being here, I'm having this weird mixture of emotion. The main one is I could fit here and the other is my self doubt. I know what I can do and that I'll be able to do more in a place with all these options. Also I know that I'll do better when I have friends who are nearby to talk to and be around.

The last time I was in Boston was as part of a marching band trip and its been fascinating to go back to places that I remember. I like how easy Boston is to walk and the T has even been fairly nice to me. My 7 day pass decided to stop working and there's only one store, so I'll deal with that tomorrow but its easy to get around. Today I picked up Seanan McGuire's newest book which I'll probably read in one or two sittings, I tend to do that with her books. Life is good and I think I can see where my road is heading next.

Two of the horoscopes I read gave me two phrases that keep going through my head as I walk around and plan-'not empty but open' and 'your instincts are glittering and sharp, use them'.

It sounds like you're having a wonderful trip. I love Boston, I lived there for a long time and found it to be a pretty delightful place to be. Of course it's different than it was when I lived there, but going back last year made me remember why I loved it for so long.

Good luck with all your move efforts, and good luck with the BPL job! I think you and Boston would be a good fit for each other.

If you happen to see a group of middle school kids (like a lot, at least 30-60) there's a good chance my daughter is with them. = ]

No, no aquarium visit. This was more of a history tour about Boston and Concord. I suspect they were by the duck crossing place you posted pictures from (on Tumblr), if her snapchat photo is any indication. They were on one of the red tour vehicles with the duck logo at any rate. = ]
