I am going to miss Pittsburgh a lot! It's a fun city with lots of good restaurants, great shopping (Trader Joe's, IKEA, Costco). But I'll miss his neighborhood, Squirrel Hill, the most. It's a great neighborhood with everything you need just a short walk away - grocery store, movie theaters, restaurants, Barnes & Noble... There's a gorgeous park nearby with lots of trails and lit tennis courts. He lived there happily for 2 years without a car, and was even able to take the bus to the airport.
Syracuse has its advantages too. It's 4 hours from NYC, Boston, Philly, Toronto... The state fair in August is lots of fun (especially the huge bunny show!), and it's a good place to raise a family. You really do get used to the snow after awhile. I guess growing up in the South I always get a magical feeling when I see it snowing outside. Like, YAY, no school!
Anyway, back to the grind. I don't know how I'll make it through the next few weeks but it sure will be nice when it's over! Then I have to settle in and study for the USMLE. It never ends :)
