45 Minutes

July 27

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.
