  • Harvard Square is special in a way that you can be so completely different from everyone else and still fit in because each person is just as odd as you are in a entirely alternate way. This is what makes everyone in the Square the same, but no one really cares anyway. Its somewhere you can just be yourself and no one bothers you about it. The idea that we all have our own Harvard Square- or a place where we can be exactly who we want to be and let go of any insecurities or false images. It’s a place where we just enter and feel at home. Of course for someone else it might be in a coffee shop, a gym, or a tree house, but no matter where it is or what makes it what it is for you, if you have that special place then this story is one you already know.
