I honestly don’t mind long commutes. And, if I’m to be honest, I’m not entirely sure if I ever really minded them.
I think in one season of my life I thought that I was supposed to not like them and so I manufactured a bit of resentment and even told folks that I didn’t like them but the truth is that I’ve never really had an issue with a super-long commute.

I’m working on a very small To-Do iOS app and I’m sharing my process and my thoughts candidly through the process in a new YouTube playlist affectionately titled “Let’s Build an App“.
As you already know, I’m heavily involved with my startup and that’s where 99% of my time goes, but, in the 1% I’m sloooooooooowly putting this thing together.
