I start a temp-to-perm position on Monday.  I'm really excited about the company and the opportunity (which I don't want to talk about too much yet because I'm a bit afraid I'll jinx it.)  The job is 8:30-5 M-F, exactly what I had been hoping for.  It's in San Francisco, and since I don't want to deal with parking I will be dealing with Caltrain and Muni.

I am a little nervous about the commute.  I've always had to drive to work, 30-45 minutes usually depending on the location, day, and time, but given that I was usually traveling in non-commute hours it wasn't so bad.  And of course, in a car you can also run errands or make any extra stops you want.  Relying on a train with a fixed schedule will be interesting.  My current plan has me walking to the station (six blocks or so) to catch the 7:28, after the transfer to Muni it should get me where I need to be at 8:18.  I haven't figured out the trip home yet, or what I'm actually going to do on the train.

I think I'm dealing with a bit of "be careful what you wish for" here, I always knew that making this schedule change could be difficult, but now that I'm staring at it all I've got are questions:  when will I run/watch movies j doesn't want to see/do my homework? how do I fill an hour's lunch in the city?   And given that it's temp-to-perm there's also the issue of not thinking I 100% have it because I don't yet.

So welcome to me actually making this transition, instead of just talking about it.  Hopefully it will be a good ride.

Congrats on the job! I hope you like it and they like you.

I always read on public transportation, and I still spend my lunch hour screwing around on the internet although I always say I'm going to use that time to walk. Time to do other things- the running, the movies your partner doesn't want to see - I have no good answers for, because my answer has always been to stay up several hours later than he does/than I should. Let me be a cautionary tale, and don't do that! ;)

Heh - in our house I'm the first one to bed and J gets quiet time after than. Likely I'll be home before he is most of the time so I should have at least an hour there to play with, we'll see what happens.
