The longest my commute has ever been is an hour and a half. It was brutal – bus – train – train – shuttle bus. I moved to be closer to my new job. This cut my commute down to 20 minutes. When I switched jobs it still only took me 20 minutes to get to my new job.
Now sometimes the stars align and I get to work in 35 minutes but every other good day it is 45 minutes. In NYC 45 minutes is typical. No one cares about a 45 minute commute in NYC. But I miss those 20 minute days. Some days 45 minutes feels like my life is at standstill and I’m in purgatory.
