put your hands in the air

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.
