Isn’t that what it’s all about? Sacrificing for the person you like so that you can see them happy?

This is just human nature, healing an old wound to prepare for a fresh new layer.

Boston isn’t any different from any other big city, I guess. There’s not a lot that makes it stand out. It’s just . . . I don’t know. There’s a vibe. A really good energy. When people say they live in Boston, they’re proud of it. I miss that sometimes.
