Believe it or not, on first glance, this particular 30 Day Blogging list seemed to be the most interesting one. However, I’m finding this as another boring question.
I actually just typed several paragraphs bitching about my underemployment status and how I’m nowhere close to where I want in any kind of career plan. But I deleted it. Because it’s boring, and no one wants to listen to me bitch.
If I’m going to bitch, it’s going to be about something worthwhile, and not self-pity.
Although I do tend to drown myself in self-pity every once in awhile. It’s an Aquarian attribute.
Soooooooo my commute.
It’s a little longer than most people around here would like.
See, I grew up in the country, and you had to drive at least fifteen minutes to get to the grocery store, or a pizza, or a gas station. Over thirty minutes to go to a mall or a decent theater. A bit of a drive was not a big deal to me.
Then I moved to St. Louis years later, and it takes 45 minutes to get ANYWHERE in that city. Traffic is terrible. There are four or five major roads going East/West in the STL area, and only one that goes straight North/South. Seriously. Look at a map.
So then I move here, and wind up in the country, and it’s about a 40 minute drive to downtown Nashville. I think this is an awesome commute. No one in the area agrees with me. If it’s more than ten minutes away, Nashvillians start to whine. I was at work one day, and a co-worker was whining he had to go to the bank ALL THE WAY ACROSS TOWN. I was like, “Dude. It’s fifteen minutes away.” I got a rude glance in the middle of a short pause, and then his whining commenced. No one liked me at that job. The place is closed now.
Oh wow, I did wind up with some bitching about former jobs thrown in here. I think this Pisces New Moon is making me cranky.
See you at Day 14.
