My commute

My morning commute:

Walk outside just as the T rumbles by.  I always miss the first train.  Not to worry, another train will be along in five minutes.  I find my usual seat, crack open my book and zone out for thirty minutes.  Not a bad way to start the day.

My commute home is a completely different beast.  There's no relaxing book reading, just pushing and shoving and annoyance.  My solution to this is to take a different train that has fewer stops.  I don't mind the little walk if I get off the train faster.  Only took me a year to figure this out.  I still feel like I stumbled upon some amazing secret. 


  1. I have the same commute but in Chicago.. never fail to watch the first train go by as I wait to cross the street!!! I've just started to stay at work a little later to avoid some of the pushing and annoyance of the commute home!

  2. For some reason it seems like morning commutes are more spread out than afternoon ones. I think some people are not putting in a full day of work!
