Oh my god I would go crazy. I really need some sort of large gathering at least once or twice a week or I start to get depressed. When I was living in the suburbs for a bit I was miserable :/

Boston is a nice city, but the huge student population really homogenizes the culture so it gets boring real quick. I'd love to move to CA but I'm not in a position where I want to ditch this job right now (likely 2015 promotion)

Eh. Boston does have a sizable college population, but it's pretty thriving without them as well. I'm in my mid 20's, but I have friends in their 30's and above that love it here.

I rarely interact with students. I mean, sometimes they're there in coffee shops that I'll be in but other than that I just see them around. Not unlike any other big city.

Well, one thing I've noticed is that there are people who love Boston and think nyc is scary and people who think Boston is lame and usually like bigger cities. I think it depends on your personality and what you're into. For me personally, just to take one example, there are only 3 bars here that have what I'd consider good music and one of those is a shithole and one only has anything going on on Thursdays, meaning that unless there's a special event I'm usually at the same place every Friday unless I get creative or brave the horrible fanuiel hall scene. Gets old. If I were someone that likes dinners with a couple friends it would be totally different but I don't even eat out really.

There's a ton of music in the city and in Cambridge area.

I like new York but I like to be able to step away from the noise once In a while. I can choose to go nuts here or choose to lay low. It's a bit moot right now since I'm working a relatively crazy schedule to pad my resume.

I hate fanieul hall. I go there only when people insist. The last time was in the summer. Seriously. There's so much more than that.

I'll be dragging Mikey out plenty once he's here.

Scottsdale. Added bonus of being in GOAT state.

Although it's nothing like NYC/LA or even Boston if that's what you're going for...

I loved living in NYC, except the cost of living. I'm a night owl, so I loved being able to roll out of my apartment at 11pm and still make a night of it.

Found a really good powerlifting blog. Dude has fantastic content with in depth series on various topics.

 

Mark, if you want to get into powerlifting, I recommend you read these.

 

Series on the competition lifts:

http://www.powerliftingtowin.com/powerlifting-technique-how-to-squat/

The most comprehensive online series I've found on all things about the lifts, from the biomechanics, personal recommendations for your body type, useful tips and tricks to mental cues, comparisons between techniques and technique corrections. Scroll down for the rest of the series.

 

Series on powerlifting gear:

http://www.powerliftingtowin.com/powerlifting-wrist-wraps/

Great series on what to consider when you buy gear and in-depth comparisons between different brands.

 

Comparison between the powerlifting federations:

http://www.powerliftingtowin.com/category/powerlifting-competition/federations/

 

He also has written a story about his own journey, from starting lifting, going through the SS and GOMAD phase, to being fat and totalling 1400, dieting down, steroid use, etc...

NYC is many things Boston should be but isn't... but overall, "a phenomenal city and a terrible place to live". Get in, make $$$, build resume, slay wenches, get out
