Commuter Problems

You would think college is just preparing for super long boring lectures where the professor JUST reads off the PowerPoint.

Maybe it’s staying up late at night preparing for the hardest test in the entire semester (just kidding the next one will be worse!).

No, in fact that is nothing compared to waking up and preparing yourself both physically and mentally to drive to school.

I am a commuter. Every day I wake up and drive forty-five miles to and from college. Every day, it is a challenge

Welcome to my world, the one I learned and still am learning how to survive.

Here are a few steps for commuters dealing with those terrible drivers.

1. Always be prepared. Never expect anything, but expect everything.

Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

2. Never ever trust the driver in front of you, behind, or the one on the other side of the road.

The one in front could be the slow guy and you must brake quickly. The one behind you could hit you from braking quickly.

So, refer to step 1 ALWAYS BE PREPARED! If you see someone driving slow start breaking a little, so the one behind you can see your brake light and they will slow down.

Now the one on the other side of the road they are the ones who can wreck you. They can easily cross the road.

So, like step one BE PREPARED! Honk and press the brakes and pray that it will all be okay.

3. Finally just crank up the music and just enjoy the ride with all these crazy drivers.
