Alright so I have a job now which is super fantastic. Do you know what is not super fantastic?
6 hours commute.
It takes be about 3 hours to get to work in the morning, and about 3 coming back. By the time I get home I have about 4 hours to eat, shower, and do whatever it is I need/ want to do before I have to go to bed.
I’m looking into getting a LIRR monthly which would cut travel time down to about 1.5 hours which, while it’s still pretty long, it's not as bad as 3 hours.
However, a LIRR monthly pass is 210$ which is way more than I’m willing to spend after my 136$ PABT pass and $113 Unlimited Metro (which I totally recommend because I can literally go wherever I want). My monthly transit costs are already about 250$ which takes my usable income down to 700 something which sounds like a LOT until you have to save it. And with the holidays and me being sick, my pay has gone down a lot.
My commission prices are a little high but they are going to a good cause (at least I’d like to think so) my mental stability and physical well being. As it is, a minor heart condition I have has been acting up because of all the stress I’m under.
TL;DR - I don’t want to spend 3 years trying to get home and am trying to save up some extra for a faster route and I’m opening some commissions to help things along.
