13, 23, and 27 – the distance of my commutes (one way, in miles) to high school, college and medical school, respectively. Living five minutes from the Texas Medical Center will certainly be a very new experience as I begin residency. I’ll primarily commute via the Metro Light Rail system to avoid having to pay $12 per day for parking, although I’ll be driving for rotations I have at the VA Hospital as they provide a free parking lot. Since this is my first time living alone, it still feels like I’m just on a vacation. Maybe the “home feeling” will sink in once I start residency on July 1st. 🙂
