So as of today, I've officially had a 4 hour commute every day to work for 2 years now.

Fifteen minute walk. Downtown Montreal. In the winter.

I used to, but decided the pay wasn't worth the lost time.

4 hours, one way? Or round trip? If the latter, than that's what I got....

I bought a house, gutted and renovated it.

then my company got bought out and my office moved.

and of course the economy took a dive.... I'd lose my shirt if I decided to trade either right now.

mine is about an hour there, hour and a half back by bus, including the walk to and from the bus stop (3/4 of a mile). used to drive but it only saves me about 10-15 minutes roundtrip. i use the time to read, sleep, plan dinner, and enjoy having someone else handle all the road rage and gas cost. that said, it's too fucking long and i'll probably start looking for work Downtown soon. The thought of a 4 hour commute makes me dizzy.

I wish public transportation were an option for me. I have no such luck. Taking the bus would triple my commute to six-hours one-way...

Four feet, from bed to desk. Via the bathroom, though, since I'm not a slob.
