So since The Move I've been vaguely annoyed that I'm so much further from an El stop. I like to be forced to walk but it was nice to be able to walk to a stop really quickly if I was suddenly inspired to do something.

But today on my way home I realized that I can now take the bus to work! It would have involved a transfer and been rather ridiculous time-wise from the old place, but now it's just a straight shot! I am so excited about this I cannot even tell you - do you realize what this is??? This is a guaranteed 90 minutes of reading on days when I do this instead of drive! I looooooove public transport and I soooooo missed taking the train to work, and now I can take the bus which is almost as good. This totally balances being further from the train.

I admit that I'm still sort of eying them warily since I've worked out it's pace vs. CTA...but I'm very hopeful nonetheless.

I like the bus as long as I don't have to transfer.

My basic philosophy is that I like anything which doesn't involve a transfer.

Buses are cheaper too.

They are. I am frequently annoyed when I put $5 on a CTA card for a journey out and back, then lose the $.50 difference when I invariably misplace said card...

\o/ It's always nice when you realize your life can be easier than you thought it was.
