As if having a 40-minute commute isn't hard enough already, I also have to deal with all of the malfunctions the MTA is having during what can only be described as "The Summer of Hell." I am lucky if my commute is 40 minutes long these days; it usually veers more towards the one hour mark. However, I have found a way to make the most of my long (and sometimes longer) commute.
I am usually the type of person who has to have a very controlled environment with no distractions in order to get a goal accomplished. Travelling by myself on the train has become one of those controlled environments. Yes, there are distractions ("It's showtime!"), but the majority of my ride is quiet, albeit slow. During my daily commute, I take the time to switch between listening to music, podcasts, or reading. My actor friends in LA have a ton of time in traffic, where they listen to audiobooks, etc., and my commute serves as an opportunity to look for new audition material, learn (or re-learn) a language, or just read a good book.
I've decided to list what is in my current rotation; hopefully, you'll like some of the choices.
