Moving to 557 Columbus Ave in the South End!

This coming week I’ll be heading to Austria and then immediately moving into a new apartment in Boston’s South End! I’m beyond excited for this new apartment, and it seems like there is something awesome that I find every time I look around the neighborhood on Google maps!

Dunkin Donuts

There is a Dunkin Donuts literally right underneath our apartment. It’s crazy. I fully intend on waking up in the morning, getting a coffee, and walking 3 extra steps to the t. It’s going to be that easy.

Green Line + Orange Line

After getting my coffee in the morning I’ll be able to walk less than a hundre yards to either the orange line OR the green line where I can ride for 10 minutes to work. Sooooo simple.

Art Store

When coming back in the evening I will have to walk past the Utrecht art store. I’m either going to go broke living in this new apartment or create some amazing art that I can actually sell!

Restaurants

I’ve explored some of the neighborhood on Google Maps, and it seems like we have everything we need within a couple blocks of us. We have a pizza joint, a pub, a coffee place, and much much more!

The MFA

One of my favorite things to do is go to the MFA, and now I live within walking distance of it. In about 15 minutes I can make it to the MFA no problems!.

Whole Foods

Dave and I recently decided to shop at Whole Foods, because it’s actually cheaper to buy the stuff we normally buy there as opposed to the regular grocery store. Conveniently there is one right down the street from us!

Community Garden

Don’t know exactly how this will work, especially because it is winter, but this looks like it’ll be fun regardless!

Titus Sparrow Park

I always enjoy having a park nearby.Conveniently, there is a nice little jogging path right behind our apartment building that goes for about a half a mile and ends in a nice little park called Titus sparrow.

(‘Brother Square-Toes’—Rewards and Fairies)

If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

 

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

 

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

 

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
