I did the samething exactly one year ago.
One of the biggest firm and raise but my commute changed from 30min of bus ride to 40miles each way by car.
I liked how I could spend my personal time in the beginning driving 1+ hour every morning and night but...here am I one year later, thinking about changing.
Commute is just hell, plus I racked up so many miles during last year and of course gas price doesn't help either.
I dream about living 5 min away from work every night.
