Hi guys! I know I’ve been very inactive lately. I’m actually in my student teaching this semester, so its a totally different (read: wild, terrifying, exciting) experience, both as a student and as a commuter. I actually was very lucky and my placement is only ten minutes away- not much of a commute!
I hope you are all well and adjusting to this semester. Don’t let commuting get you down!
I don’t know how much longer I can take this early commute thing. Leaving the house by 6:30 is decidedly uncool.
GM1: I’m available at 9 PM!
GM2: Me too!
Me: hahahahhahahahah no.

Hey commuters! I hope you all have a great semester! I probably won’t be here too much with my own stuff, but I’m still taking submissions and questions so fire away :)
My final year of undergrad (and possibly commuting???) Starts in less than a week
hey guys just a reminder if you send any personal asks that don’t get posted on this blog, my answer will show up as being sent from my personal blog.
the semester starts in like 2 weeks go figure my car would need repairs
Jeez it’s like clockwork isn’t it
tips of commuter problems
Hmmm well are there any problems in particular that concern you? Without anything more specific, I’ll leave you with this:
Generally I find that most of my commuting woes can be solved with a nice, big cup of coffee. The world seems like a much better place when you are awake enough to see it.
Ugh sorry about the typos guys I’m on my cell and it keeps auto correcting and then not letting me fix it
what is the basic sides of time,energy,money problems of commuters..
Well I can’t speak for all commuters, but in my own experience, I’ve had to mask a lot of sacrifices due to commuting. The thing is, even though commuting saves a ton of money, it doesn’t always feel that way because there are so many costs up front (like gas and car maintenance). Dorming is still more expensive in the long run, but most people don’t feel that pinch until after graduation when the bills start rolling in. But for me, every dollar I scrounge has to go to my car, not for shopping or snacks or other things resident students might spend it on. The other thing is, which I have mentioned here before, three time sacrifice commuting involves. Since I drive every single day day, I spend about 10 hours a week in the car. That means that I spend 10 hours a week not studying or sleeping or taking part in collegiate life at all.
However, that doesn’t mean I’m miserable. Those are just two aspects of commuting, not the whole picture. remember that every persons experience will be different and I’m only one person. There are plenty of students who will tell you that they like commuting because they save money and they spend more time studying than they would in a dorm setting.
I hope that helps!
