Dear The Big E-
You know, I will really miss you.
I just realized that I have lived here for 9 years. That's amazing to me. Never did I think I would live here that long. I would stop in for college and be on my way. But little did I know, you would have a hold on me. Keeping me in your trenches, never wanting to let me go.
Big E, we have grown together, you and me. You have forced me to grow up. I lived here in your city for so many stages in my life. From college to homelessness, from the bottom back up to the top... your comforting surroundings and consistant force have always kept me loving you, even when I said I didn't.
I will miss your beautiful ponds, amazing sunsets, interesting people and smelly air quality.
I will miss purple christmas lights, the crazy duck/deer/santa lady, the unshoveled streets and the loud musical nights.
There are so many things that 9 years have given me.
Thank you for letting me stay.
Thanks for calling me one of your own.
Your the best city I've ever lived in. As ashamed as I am to admit it.
