Poor, poor Boston: buried in mounds of snow and more still on the way.
There is a lot to be wary of when using CL for goods and/or services. Anything can happen. So, why, you might ask, would a person still do any business on Craigslist if there are so many scam artists, shysters and loons on the site?
Moving to Brooklyn was not easy. In fact, it was by far the hardest apartment search I have ever conducted, far worse than Boston or Chicago. That should have been no surprise, but I was just not clued into how much more difficult it was going to be. We're talking exponential levels of difficulty. Let me tell you all about it.
With exactly one month until my New York City year begins, 9 years of traveling, moving, working, writing and living are coming to their payoff.
For 9 years, I have made my way from one U.S. city to the next, making friends, finding work, getting by. Getting old. When I started this project, not a single episode of How I Met Your Mother had aired and Neil Patrick Harris had yet to ascend to the role of everyone's favorite gay man (sorry Anderson Cooper).
Time has come for me to start turning my focus towards my next city, New York. It's also my last city, so who am I kidding, my focus has always been on it.
The most frequent questions I used to get were about how I picked my cities or how I found an apartment or job, or if it were lonely doing what I do. Now, though, with only one city left, the question I get most is, "What's next?"
The year has started to settle.
