There are pros and cons to every job and mine is no exception.
Pro: I work with awesome people.
Con: I drive 47.4 miles to work with these awesome people.
Quick run down of mileage: That’s 94.8 miles a day, 474 miles a week, 1896 miles per month, and 22,752 miles per year.
I know exactly what you’re about to ask (if you’re feeling compelled to ask me something)–How is that drive treating you?? (I’ve decided that I should tell people where I work before I tell them what I do, because, without a doubt, every person finds the distance factor much more interesting. I can’t really argue with them either.)
So, anyway, how is the drive treating me, you ask?
Well guys, the drive is not treating me very nicely. In fact, it’s downright mean. I do not enjoy beating the sun out of bed. I do not like that I can not fully indulge in happy hours after work (friends will most definitely NOT drive an hour to come pick your tipsy butt up no matter how much they tell you they love you). And worst of all, I do not like the amount of money spent on gas.
Why not move closer to work? Good question. For another post. This post is dedicated to my daily drive to Funky Town (Fort Worth, TX) and the Top 5 things I do to distract myself from the (almost) hour long drive. Get excited. They’re quite thrilling.
