Living My Ideals

With the beginning of my new job I will have the opportunity to use public transportation regularly. I have always been in favor of using public transit but since I have always either worked from home or lived close enough to commute by bicycle I have never really used the transit system in Utah on a regular basis. That will change starting in July as I become a holder of a monthly pass (I’ll be driving to work for my one day of employment in June because I wil not be at my regular office location on that day of orientation).

I hope and believe that I will enjoy that time in transit where I don’t have to worry about the traffic. I plan to read and think during those times as a way to prepare for and unwind from my workday. The hope is that this allows me to really be with my family while I am at home rather than having my thinking interfere with my attention during family times.

    I have a 45 minute commute to work and back. Though I miss having that time to do things with my family, I do arrive home having left all my work-day frustrations behind. My family gets to experience me rather than a busy employee in the evenings.

    I use the commute time to listen to audio books (librivox.org has plenty to choose from for free).

    I hope your commuting experience will be a positive one.

    Thanks Jason. I hope that my commuting experience will be much the same as yours – arriving home as myself and not merely a half-father who is still partially at work.
