Boston is a pretty fantastic city, but I didn’t think I would be able to live there. I grew up living in the heart of Pittsburgh, and that was pretty chaotic for me. I knew that Boston is a lot busier, and I just did not want to put myself through that with how I felt about city living. That is why I started looking at apartments for rent in Revere MA when I was hired on at the university in Boston. I didn’t mind that it would take me a bit longer to get home from work because it was not that much longer at all, just a few minutes.
Those extra few minutes are really worth it to me to be able to live in a much slower paced community. I also thought it would be nice to be in a community where I won’t often run into my students while I am out and about since most of them live in the dorms at the university. Another bonus is that the rent is a bit cheaper since I am not taking up prime real estate space, so to speak.
The apartments are actually nicer because of the view here in Revere too. The few apartments I had looked at in Boston did not have a good view at all because of all the buildings around them. Here at my apartment in Revere, I can look at the ocean and the sunsets, which are two of my favorite things here. I like a lot of the other things about my apartment here too, but it is the people who make up our little community that I like the best. I never expected to find a family of sorts here, but that is exactly how we view each other here, and that is really nice!Continue reading →
