There is nothing worse.
Going back to my graduation internship company (I really need to figure out briefer phrasing for that) tomorrow, to specify the details of the project I’ll be undertaking. Commuting there actually takes quite a bit of time, but almost a third of that is spent standing still, waiting for my bus to come. It’s an awful connection, that’s for sure. Twenty minutes spent standing still, I’d rather the bus took twenty minutes longer to get to my destination instead.
It’s like that for a lot of things besides public transport. You don’t want to be stuck in the same place for too long, it’ll start to become monotonous and bore you. Change is the spice of life, and all that. I can’t imagine working on the same project for more than a year or two, let alone live the exact same life for that amount of time.
And yet it’s easy for people to become stuck in a familiar cycle. Sure, it’s definitely comfortable there in your comfort zone, but you’re not exactly stimulating yourself. The human mind is a finicky tool, one that requires constant use as upkeep.
I’m probably going to haul a bike over sometime so I don’t have to wait anymore.
