Good for you!
Long commutes - you will get used to them soon, the route will get more familiar... just blast some groovy tunes out loud to start you day!
Half the battle of getting used to a new job is also getting used to the new commute - I once worked in Bracknell and wow did I get lost around the tangled housing estates when I first drove up there! So stressful!  :lol:

I'm commuting Cambridge to Harpenden, thank heavens for the sat. nav! I did it in 1h24 on Friday morning. I've just ordered a cable to sort the music situation out, Radio 2 is all very well but I think that after weeks on end it would drive me crazy  :lol:

Congatulations! I used to have a 1,5 hour commute by bus. People thought it was crazy but if one really likes the job I think it's worth hit (I do however prefer the 17 minute bikeride I have today).

I've just given up a 15 minute bike ride unfortunately, how long did you stick out the bus commute?

Congratulations, Artie :) I'm really happy for you :) And it's always good to reward yourself week by week in a new job. It helps as an incentive, so I hope you really enjoyed your wine ;)


Thank you Taffeta,  yes I did! What I miss giving up an extra 2.5 hours each day is the head space to do other projects, but luckily my job is quite interesting so it will have to be my hobby too. Hope all is well with you.

Congrats! I also have a long commute to work. My recommendation is getting some books on tape to listen to in the car! It helps pass the time :)

About two years, then I was laid off.

I guess it's relative - I was always stuck on public transport as I can't drive for navigational reasons, and transport back home is literally horrible. So when I was working at the library (7 years) I would have to leave around 7.15 to start work at 9am. On a late start at 1pm, with the time of the bus with the train it meant I had to leave home at half past 11. Then I'd finish at 8 and if I didn't get a lift, wait 45 minutes for a train home, then get a lift from the station as the buses had all stopped at 6.

I felt like I was working many more hours than I was, but I ended up using the time on the station and waiting for trains and stuff to practice my kanji while I was learning Japanese. So that helped. It's not a bad idea to get something to listen to to pass the time, so long as you're careful not to let it distract you if you're driving.

When I was at uni as an undergrad my commute was 2 trains and a bus so I used to do all my reading on the train for the next class.
