Last week, I slogged through snow,
risked frostbite while waiting around for various modes of public transportation
& spent far too many hours on trains.
It was exhausting.
This week, my commute is 99.9% less of a hassle.
See that building in the foreground on the left side of the picture?
It houses the language school where I teach.
Oh, it bears mentioning that I took this photo from our balcony
(about a week ago, when we had a light dusting of snow& not piles of white stuff like now).
Yep, I can see my workplace from my apartment.
My trip to work this morning took me all of 3 minutes.
And my new students seem at least 50% less infuriating than my previous group.
Good news all round!
