After visiting Concord, Carlisle, and Bedford, I was tired, but I decided that I wanted to finally get my iPad, and when you are in this area and you want to go to a place with a lot of shopping, you usually head to Burlington.
I have many past experiences in Burlington. I worked there for a short time, and my former partner grew up there, so I have been there many times. Burlington is sort of known for a lot of stores and a lot of traffic. It seems that if there’s a possibility of putting up a store or an office building, it goes up there. I’ve heard some call Burlington “bad urban planning personified”. I just know that in many ways I try to avoid going there as much as possible. I could be part of my trying to simplify my life too.
I went into the mall, fighting the traffic getting there, and found the Apple Store. As they didn’t have what I wanted, (I had to order it on line), I just roamed a little bit and left. It had been a long day and I didn’t want to deal with the crowds. I know a little bit more about what I can handle and what I don’t need to bring into my life, and crowds and shopping are some of them.
So, what are the things you know not to invite into your life anymore?
