It’s always nice to have options. When we are busy, having access to multiple modes of alternative transportation is a big relief! Read on to see how Gillian mixes up her commute to tailor to her schedule!
Today I had to wake up super-early (at least for me) because I have to leave work early to go to school. I am a part-time evening law student at Seattle University and fall semester started this week. My work hours from Tuesday to Thursday are now 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Sometimes it’s a pain getting up, but there are certainly many benefits of an earlier start to the work day. Traffic is better, I am more productive, and I don’t get worried that I am missing an early morning meeting or conference call. I drive in to work on days I have class. I wish it was more convenient for me to get to school and get home using public transportation. But for the time and flexibility, I drive.
I have to say that it is great having multiple options for my commute on any given day. Depending on my schedule, the weather, or simply my mood, I can choose to bike, bus, or drive. Maybe someday I will try a fourth option – by foot. =)
