My life has drastically changed over the last three months. I’ve moved out, moved interstate and moved in with my boyfriend all in one hit. I’ve started my first full-time, professional job. I’m having to maintain and run a home as well as coping with waves of homesickness. But the biggest change I’ve adapted to is my long commute between home and work. On a good day it will take me an hour and a half on public transport. On a bad day it’ll be at least two hours. Compare this back to Perth, where everything in the suburbs was a ten-minute drive.
While long commutes can be a pain in the ass, I’m also learning they’re full of potential. If you know what to do, you can make them incredibly productive, and even make them the best part of your day.
