I live in the DC metro area, and for the last 2 years, I was at a school outside the city that didn't bring me much joy, but my commute was perfect (about 15-20 min, opposite of rush hour traffic). I will be at a school in the district this year, and to be honest the thought of this commute is terrifying me. I've seen the nightmare that is 95/495/395 in the mornings going the opposite way, and it made me want to cry. I did relocate from the VA to the MD side, to have more options in case of inclement weather (bus/metro), and to literally be closer. But I'm still scared of this commute for some reason. I'm curious to know how the rest of you get to work!
