how long is your commute, and how often do you come in?

My wife and I are looking for a new place to live. Right now our commute is nearly unbeatable. 2 minute walk to a 30 minute train, and an 8 minute walk/scooter ride to the office from the train.

I'm spoiled.

Everywhere we're looking generally requires a drive to the train, which makes every commute basically twice as long as it is currently.

30 seconds from the bed to the office, 5 days a week.

But seriously, as an engineer you should be able to find remote roles or have current company at least agree to flexible WFH schedule since you are moving.



I’m fully remote now, but my pre-COVID commute was 45-60 minutes door to door (walking/subway), each way.

Office is about 1.5 hrs away for me. I only go in maybe 2-3x a month. 15 minute walk to train, 45 minutes to an hr on the train, another 15 minutes walking to office

10 minute drive to train, 20 minute train, 5 minute walk. Go in 2-3 days per week by choice

Guys I received the letter of intent from Deloitte USI on 11th July, HR is still not giving the final offer letter. I got a response saying "awaiting internal approval" twice after follow up.
Should I wait or move on? How long does it really take its been 14 days already.
I'm serving notice period and last working day is nearing.

I feel like there are days where I have control on my anxiety and then other days it just takes over. I’m trying my best to not let it get to me…idk if it’s because of my BC but I’ve been trying to meditate, journal and practice breathing exercises but it’s been tough.


I love my team, but I fear I’m no longer creating book-worthy creative where I am (and that our clients will flat out never buy any real/conceptual ideas). I’m half a decade into my career and have some things to show for it but not quite as much as I’d like. What do I do? Should I be in panic mode? Or am I being ridiculous? Honestly don’t know anymore.
