Baltimore was a learning experience, much like dating an ex. While there were challenging times, the dust has settled and there are no more hard feelings. I have moved on to “see other cities” and Baltimore will just keep doing Baltimore. I am grateful for our time together, and although I don’t wish to re-live the experience, I can share it with others who may want to have their day in the sun.
Baltimore is not a city that welcomed me with open arms. I really had to work for it. And since I wasn’t mentally prepared for what I was getting into, it downright tried my patience, pushed my buttons, and forced me into situations I wasn’t comfortable in. And I’m originally from New York.
But that’s not to say it was a wasted trip.
