I woke up with a late start today. My alarm failed so instead of waking up at 6, I woke up at 9:50 when Andrew knocked on our door, telling us that we have to leave in 5 minutes. I was saying OMG constantly in my head as I dressed up. Austin and I managed to get washed and dressed in a few minutes. The surprising thing today was that the train was 10 minutes late. All of our attempts to go to the station early and having our luggage thrown around have been in waste. I felt sad but the train ride soothed me.
Boston was amazing. When I exited the AMTRAK, the subways and train systems were mystifying. I was amazed at how clean and fast the systems were. It makes New York sort of look bad, and as a result, I was covering my "I love NY" shirt the whole time I was there. We got to Boston College fairly quickly after having a snack at the prominent Dippin Donuts.
The Boston College informational session was very interesting and I got a lot of information about Boston. Some facts I learned about Boston College was that Boston College is a Catholic dominant college and it has many connections with the neighborhood. Even though there are many great characteristics about Boston College, I think that I won't apply to this college mainly because of its Catholic presence and passive engineering school.
Shopping was awesome. Boston's streets were filled with street vendors selling exotics and souvenirs and I savored every second. This is where I learned a lesson in shopping; girls shop for a long time >.>. Besides this, It was such a pleasure to just look at people pass by and the bands play throughout the streets. I wanted to stay in Boston forever but unfortunately I couldn't. Enjoy the pictures. I'm trying to figure how to upload videos in the meantime.
