# The DU Lounge

Related: Culture Forums, Support Forums# Just submitted my application for the new primary care position at our soon-to-open new clinic.

It's a five-minute drive from my house. My commute will be twenty minutes shorter each morning. Since we will have dental there as well, Mrs. Aristus may be coming over, too. It will be nice working in the same building at last...

(1,843 posts)It works out for both of you!

I had a 40 min each way commute when I was working.

But it was a beautiful ride.

(16,990 posts)A 5 minute commute sounds divine. Long commutes suck.

I hope this works out for both you and the missus! 🤞🍀🤞

(6,356 posts)Saving 20 minutes each way...think of all the additional posts you could do on DU each day with all that extra time.
