#6: Location

At number six on the list is Gordon's location.  I'm a big believer in the idea that everywhere is somewhere (does that make sense?).  I hate when people say things like "there's nothing here"; I beg to differ.  However, I do think that there are some places that have an edge over others, and Gordon's location definitely has an edge.  It's settled on Boston's North Shore with quick access to really great coastal towns like Gloucester and Salem.  Boston is only about 30 or 40 minutes away (and the commuter train runs only a mile or two off of campus) and we're just down the road from the beach.
I love the ocean and have never lived so close to it for such a long period before, so that is one thing that I'm going to miss dearly.  Bike rides down to the water, late night star-gazing on the beach, Sunday study sessions at a hidden cove, yeah, I'll miss that.
Boston might be one of my favorite American cities.  Completely walkable, rich with history, with tons of great restaurants and shops, Boston is amazing.
I always get a giddy feeling when coming back to school, for many reasons, obviously, but when driving north on 128 after coming back from a break, spotting familiar sites never fails to get me excited to be back at a great school, in a great area.
Excuse me while I flood my room with my tears.
