    Whether you are a student commuting back and forth to university, or have chosen to live outside the city or place you work, it’s important to be smart about your commute. I’ve been commuting to work for almost three years now, so I’ve learned a few tricks along the way.

    I’m officially a quarter of a century old. Twenty five feels significant. I’m no longer a recent grad. My friends are in their steady careers, some are married, some own houses, some have children. Life is exciting, it’s changing, and I’m really enjoying my 20s.
