With the start of my internship, I have become a commuter. It is not a decision that I would have made, but for the sake of my education (aka not having much choice in where I was placed for my internship) it is what I must do. To save on gas, avoid putting mileage on our car, and be a little environmentally friendly; I commute via public transit. Even though it nearly doubles my commute time, it does have some benefits. I use my time commuting to read, analyze the behaviors of rogue teenagers, get into awkward conversations with strangers, or to simply think about life.
In honor of my commuting, it seemed appropriate that we buy a killer deal from the local classifieds on a Timbuk2 bag called the Commute.
