Commute

 Years ago I had a job that was almost an hour and thirty minutes 
away from where I lived.
One hour and thirty minutes, without traffic, that is.

Black trousers Liz Claiborne - Grey top Express - Black cardigan Forever 21 - Red burgundy pumps Me Too -
 Black Roberto Cavalli bag - Swarovski accessories

Luckily I did not have to drive there as I had a car and chauffeur provided by the company.
Another perk was that I was off on Fridays :)
I worked at this office for over 3 years, until the headquarters moved to the city.

Back in the day I would get up at 5 something in the morning and even though
I consider myself a morning person, it was awful.

Today I work at another company and live three streets away from when I work.
I complain about the traffic, when I can actually walk to work.
Now, I wonder if I would ever be willing to spend so much time in a car to go to and from work again.

How about you ?
What's your commute time ?

Your Swarovksi accessories are beautiful. I love cherries. I was gifted last year a similar red cherry Swarovski necklace though I am sure it is still in the States in my bedroom over my parents. Also those Platform Loafers are gorgeous. I want them. Last but not least beautiful Teal nails splattered with sparkle.

You know my commute to work sucks. I first have to walk about 30-35 minutes (or take a bus for 15-20 minutes, it stops to so many places, it's a an inter-city bus). Then I have to take a designated work bus for another 20 minutes. Overall, it takes me an hour to 65 minutes each way, daily. It sucks.

Man, 3 blocks is AMAZING! In new york, 3 blocks is nothing..I head up town and transfer trains but I only go twice a week. It takes about 30 mins...

Love this look and still love the nails!

Love the red shoes.
My first job was 60 miles away which took me two and a half hours each way on the train (three changes and a walk each way) - the things I was prepared to do to get into journalism!
I then got a car and a new road was built which took the journey down to a 60 minute drive.
I lasted four months. The commuting nearly killed me.
Now it takes me 20 minutes in the car to work, 30 minutes on the bus, 50 minutes on my bike and 1 hour 20 minutes on the days I run home.
I love having the options.

I'm lucky enough to work from home but my husband commutes - it takes him at least an hour and a half to get to work each day.

Love your shoes!

Wow that is such a long commute, I couldn't do that! I'm lucky I live 30 minutes from work, but if there is traffic the trip takes much longer. I hate staying back late at work as the traffic builds up, sometimes it can take over and hour and a half to get home for a 30 minute trip! Crazy!

I've had years with a long commute and realized that when I drove to campus everyday that I was basically spending 10 hours a week in traffic. I began to teach more online to save the price of gasoline...and much prefer things that way. It is 55 miles one way to the campus where I teach.

It's between 20 and 30 mins for me. Some days I bike to work. It's about 6 miles. Love the shoes!
