The Great Commute

I regretfully left my job at Wayne State University Press for Thomson Gale publisher out in Farmington Hills. Part of the regret is leaving behind the seven minute door-to-door commute to work from downtown to midtown. Thankfully I still get to live in the city even though I don’t get to experience the 9-5 life in the city. The way I see it is that I have a whole pool of suburbanites that I can entice to come play in the city after work. The reverse commute seems like a good idea in theory where I am leaving the city in the morning when everyone is flooding in, but the Lodge closure is messing that up. Then when the exodus after work from the city is to occur, I just realized that all our sporting events mess that up. So really, while this is a great step in my career, it is a step up on the road rage ladder for me.

    I can’t imagine you having road rage. ;)

    My roommate drives to the outer edges of Oakland Co. everymorning (I know I couldn’t do it) and she whines about the Lodge daily. I think that to or from the City, some spots are just high traffic areas.

    Congrats on the new gig, too.

    The reverse commute is an awesome thing and once the Lodge is done, you’ll get to work in no time. I did the reverse commute down I-96 and it was always a piece of cake.
