Another One Rides the Bus

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

It’s a good thing I don’t experience motion sickness. Otherwise, I would have already puked on the buses many times by now.

Yes, I feel like I am living on a bus now. My new part-time job at Daechi-dong requires me to commute through an hour of Seoul’s traffic at least twice a week. Keep in mind, that’s 2+ hours a day for a roundtrip. Not fun. And then there’s that 2+ hours I spend on the bus on Saturdays going to Osan and coming back. Public transportation…gotta love ’em.

At least the trip to Daechi-dong is waaaaaaaay cheaper than my Osan one. It cost me $1.60 for a roundtrip to Daechi-dong and $9.20 for a roundtrip to Osan. That’s a huge difference. o_O I didn’t realise that till now. Ouch. Ah well.

Like I said, I am glad I do not get carsick. That would utterly suck for someone who has to commute often!

    Good, then you wouldn’t have to use a barf bag

  2. I travel for 90 minutes a day to and from work. Its a real pain in the ass, but not as bad as sitting on a bus for 2 hours though!

    Ugh I hate travelling on public transport too… taking a bus from home to Uni takes MORE than 2 hours a day (there and back). >_

    Commuting sucks. I know. I use to commute about 2 hours when I was a temp. It use to drain my gas tank. Lucky for me now, it takes 15 to 20 mins. and I don’t spend a single dime. Best of luck with the new job.

    Ugh, I hate commuting. And … that is a HUGE difference in cost. Wow.
