We have had people take them out of our arms when we were delivering them to the store. Also, a lot of folk are looking for parts from old computers.

This has limited my career trajectory to work in affordable urban centers (ie: not Chicago or SF or other major metro areas) where wages more closely reflect cost-of-living. I’ve also had to forgo living in less-expensive rural fringe communities. Overall, this has allowed me a very high quality of life and solid job satisfaction. If you are willing to limit your career opportunities, I think it pays off in the end with an improved overall quality of life.

I travel through to states to get to the final third state to work. I take a commuter bus and that is an experience that can not be shared with the uninitiated, however, hundreds of us do it every morning and every afternoon. It costs $31.3015 per day, and that’s not including the drive to and from the bus depot. When I have to drive in to work, the cost is more than triple. Why do I do it? Medical insurance.

It’s easy for those of us who choose to live in metropolitan or urb-burb areas to commute as we have many options. Like most things, having convienence means that I sacrifice things like having a huge yard and a home with a big driveway. I wish that Public Transportation fares weren’t so expensive but it’s cheaper than filling my gas tank every few weeks and then paying for parking in the city!

I’ve always tried to live within 5 miles of where I work and in many situations have been close enough so I can walk.

I take the bus even though it takes longer because it’s (slightly) cheaper than driving, and much more relaxing. I get my best reading done every morning and afternoon on the bus.

I consider myself really lucky. I cannot imagine living much further from the office.

Like, suppose you find a soda can on the sidewalk. You would stop and think…Should you pick it up?
The best answer for that question would be yes! Everyone has a responsibility to keep your town clean. Please, help the world, help you, help me. Thank you!

We recently moved to this house/location and a major decision was based upon our proximity to the light rail station from our house – .75 miles away. I take the train every day to work. Had it not been for the light rail, I do not think we would have purchased the home. What could be better? You get to read, listen to music and laugh at all of the rush hour traffic in gridlock.
