Redditech’s Boston Chronicles – Moving day’s coming

At AMC Fenway So they’ve kept me really busy here at Medullan...not that I’m complaining, in the last few weeks since I’ve blogged I’ve built perhaps some of the most powerful applications I’ve ever had to. And the challenges keep on coming. Work is slightly off my mind today as I contemplate the dynamics of moving over to a new apartment on Saturday. I call it the “haunted house”, not in a bad way though, just because it’s quite an old Boston building, “quite Bostonian” according to my Boston-based coworkers. It is in truth quite liveable, but it is also quite different from the Harvard Business School apartment I currently occupy in terms of its environment and location. It’s alot closer to the humdrum of Boston proper, since it’s closest T station is Central Square as opposed to Harvard Square, but it’s still a very safe neighbourhood from what I’ve been told. O, and I have a housemate, a very cool dude and my coworker from Medullan.

Moving back to Trinidad to live with my family after living on my own in Barbados presented its challenges to me as I learnt to “share space” with others once again. I hope I can draw from those experiences to not piss off my housemate too badly with what I know are my own bad habits. Working the hours I have, there haven’t been many pictures, but those I’ve taken of Boston continue to be posted at the Redditech Gallery’s Boston album. Sadly sunset is between 8 and 9pm here, which is kind of late to be roaming by oneself in the middle of Boston in search of locations to take nightlife pictures, but honestly, if I get a chance I will, the outline of the city at night from the highway coming home last night was absolutely breath-taking and unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my life. Sadly a moving vehicle is never the best location for capturing such shots simply because u need to be standing still to not have a blurred image. Small things like these picturesque views may seem arbitrary for some who are used to it I know, but it’s my first trip to any kind of really big city and I take any moment I have free to just step back and appreciate the beauty around.
