Jennifer Blake: Where I live!

Where I live!

June 12, 2013


I am linking up with some lovely ladies from the Influence Network today and sharing where I live!

My husband and I currently reside in Worcester, Massachusetts. I could basically sum up my feelings about Worcester in 3 words: I hate it. I wont lie it is no fun to hate the place you live, but we're making it work. We lived in Boston last year, but we moved so I could have the chance to go to school. Worcester is the farthest we could move where Aaron could take the train into Boston for school and I could drive an hour and twenty minutes to get to school. The thing I love about being here...our apartment. We live on the 19th floor and have a pretty awesome city view. Our apartment is really spacious and pretty darn nice inside. There are also some surrounding towns that are nice and we tend to adventure to them often. I guess the reason I am not a fan of Worcester is because of the people, they just are not nice, oh and how dirty it is, that kind of makes me hate it too. We have been here for over a year now and we have certainly adjusted and are doing fine, but I would be lying if I said we were not SO EXCITED to be moving back to NH in December. I think I have had enough of city life, give me some grass and a few local farms, I'll be a happy camper. Oh and sorry about the poor picture quality, I think this was from the first time it snowed this year, looking out from our window.

Go check out this post to see everyone else linking up!

  3. I was pleasantly surprised to find someone else from the link-up from MA! I haven't done my post yet, but I live in Boston and go to school in Amherst, so I'm on either side of you :)

  4. I don't blame you for hating it. I used to live in a big city and hated it. Country living is so much fun :)

  5. That's good that you can focus on the positive of your apartment, and also that you can go through this together as a couple!

    I love the city of Boston because that's where we got engaged. :) And I'm a huge Sox fan! I've only been in the summer though...it my kill my Southern self in the winter, haha.

  6. That's a definite down-side of city life - friendliness! Especially if you are from the country, it can be a bit shocking. But I think it's just the culture, you just mind your own business and keep your eyes down haha. When I moved from a city to the country, I was shocked by how many people waved at me or talked to me like we were old friends and we had never actually met. I love that about small towns/ the country. nice to meet you through the linkup!

  7. I knew you're a fellow MA resident, but didn't know you are part of the Influence Network :) My dad worked in Worcester when I was in high school and I can't say I have the fondest memories of it. Hang in there!

  9. Boo! I'm sad you don't love where you live. I love living in a big city, so if you're ever up in Vancouver, give me a call and I'll help you fall in love with a city!

  10. I live about 15 minutes from there! Too funny, what a small world. I agree with you on your thoughts of Worcester. I'm just far enough away that I have the grass and local farms... :)

  11. I've gotta agree with you and say that I love living out in the country. The city is nice for awhile, but I don't think I could live there long term! :)

  12. I lived in Worcester for a year back in 2007 when I got accepted into graduate school at Assumption College. Coming from Florida I found the people to be rude and not accepting of people not from New England.

    Funny to here others share the same opinion.
