It’s two weeks since I’ve felt like blogging, so I haven’t, but hey, I’m here now!
I’m currently enjoying a slice of bread with apple butter. I hate waking up late because breakfast ends up at lunchtime (it’s nearing 11am) and then things get all messed up. :/
There are two bus systems in my town: the city buses and the university buses. Being a student, I get to ride both for free. I ride a university bus to and from work each day, but I hate the city buses. Riding them really stresses me out.
It has nothing to do with the people on the bus and everything to do with how unreliable their timing is. Oh and how they take forever to get anywhere. Yesterday I rode the bus to go shopping five miles away and the ride was 30 minutes long.
However, yesterday I found the bus rides to the store and back quite relaxing. I guess sometimes it’s nice just to sit around and enjoy some music while riding in a vehicle. It’s no secret that riding in cars often makes me sleepy. I guess this is no different.
When I visited Los Angeles last summer, I took the bus to get everywhere. One day I spent the afternoon in Venice Beach and then decided to head over to Hollywood for an evening comedy show. The total commute time ended up being over two hours, but somehow I didn’t even mind the time. There were some shady characters on one of the buses and I felt extremely out of place waiting to change buses at one particular stop, but the time itself didn’t really matter to me at all.
Maybe I’m used to it because I lived 30 minutes away from my high school. That’s nothing compared to Georgina’s commute, but it was one of the longest at my school. Most of the students lived much closer, although several of my favorite teachers lived near me. 🙂
I recently met some people who attend the university in the town adjacent to mine and I found out how friggin cheap their rent is. Let’s just say my college town is far more expensive. There is good bus service between the two cities, and I’m wondering if it would be practical to live out there my final year (I’ll be entering my third and second-to-last year in the fall and going back to the dorms). I could save so much money and it’s not like I’m not used to the commute. 😉
We’ll see. I’d probably be hard pressed to find someone willing to live out there with me.
