New Job = Less Car?
I will be starting a new job tomorrow. There were many reasons behind my decision to leave my former job at the Animal Shelter, but among them was a need to feel less spread out. The commute to work had been about 7.5 miles each way, which isn't so bad by car, and doable by bike, but honestly I wasn't able to keep up with biking 15 miles a day. The new job is 2 miles from my new house; I think I might even walk there for my first day. Santa Fe is kind of a spread out city, but I know that I can find everything I need within a 2-3 mile radius. Maybe this new job will be the impetus I need to stay closer to home. Also, I don't have to work weekends anymore, so I can see my boyfriend and go to the Farmer's Market! Yay!
