  6. It’s officially Folk Fest week and, like every year, the closer it comes the more I’m getting stressed out about frantically running from stage to stage.

     
  7. I brought my bike up here from my parents’ house about a month ago, but have been finding excuses not to ride it. I think I was just nervous about riding in traffic and getting hit. But after a test ride yesterday I realized how bike-able Boston is, so I spent today aimlessly riding around.

    This weekend is exactly what I needed to remind me that I actually do like it here, and running away to be alone in the woods isn’t the only way I’ll be happy. Because I like drinking pitchers of sangria on a bar’s patio, I like that there’s always new restaurants to discover in my neighborhood, I like that this is a tourist destination but I get to just live here all the time. I like venturing across the river to Cambridge and feeling like I’m in a totally different city. I like that Boston’s skyline is modest. I like brownstones and the public garden and the North End. And also, I fucking love biking.

     
  8. Been doing a lot of Boston this weekend. I’ve missed the city a little. (at Copley Square)

     
  9. Crawford Path Scenes

    Mount Pierce

     
  10. I saw The Lone Bellow in a church in Portsmouth last night. Those harmonies in a place with acoustics like that could make me convert to any religion. It was awesome.
