for all the commuters out there. I am finished with week 4 of my 7 week teaching stint. I honestly like sewing with middle schoolers. They remind me of pirates, crass, giddy, kind of ungrounded, odiferous, need I continue? What I don’t enjoy is the commute to Junction City and Oakridge. Commuters are a toughened and resilient bunch. Just four weeks of this daily commute and my hands vibrate for stretches, my back aches, my butt is re-shaped and possibly larger, I wake with nightmares of Mac trucks, I’m yelling insults at people I pass in hallways.... How do you commuter’s do it? I need some insights to get through the next 3 weeks.
