I walk to work now. Even if I have way too many teaching hours and I ache all over, statistics say I should be as happy as if I were paid 40% more.
In Shanghai I had a 35-60 minute one way bus commute. I don’t miss that at all, from this year of thirds in China, Iceland, and Korea. It was nice to listen to a podcast on the way home but it made my 45 hour work week into a 55-60 hour one.
Now I walk for 4 minutes to get to work.
Come. Let’s walk.
