That decision is entirely up to you. And it is a decision only you can

Maybe staying in Boston is something you really want, and to do that,
maybe it means expanding your horizons to other things you *can* do.

Maybe leaving Boston and setting down new roots somewhere else is
something more attractive.

Either way, you are going to grow a lot in a very short period of time.

All the best in the job hunt.
