My new job has a really different commute than my old one. It's in the car, as opposed to on the train. I'm fortunate in that I can take express lanes to get there, and so I mostly avoid traffic. I was unsure I would like the commute, but it turns out I'm really enjoying it. I listen to podcasts, or talk on the phone with friends and family, and on the whole find it an enjoyable part of my day. It goes by fairly quickly. Really, what's about a half hour commute seems like 30 seconds sometimes.
