Looks pretty from here.
Madison didn't really agree with me while I was living there, but that might be because I didn't live anywhere near downtown, or anywhere near anything except the designated anime branch of the public library (which, granted, was awesome, but not enough to make up for the fact that other than watching lots of anime, there wasn't much to do). It's a nice place with many nice features, I was just too far away to easily take advantage of many of them.
However, if I had lived downtown and had a view similar to this one, I might not be in grad school right now. Ergo, I think it's probably a good thing I lived where I did. Thank you, Madison. Best idea ever.
