How much time do you spend commuting to work/school every day? How much would you consider too much time?
The reason I ask is because I've gotten into a master's program at a school about 75-90 minutes from where dh and I live. I'm still very young (22), so I would like to finish all my school now instead of going back when I'm older, and especially in today's job market I think a master's degree would help me distinguish myself a lot more. The problem is, my dh has a good job where we live, and where the university I got into is he wouldn't have that opportunity (we live in the closest big city to the university, which is in a college town). I would be going against traffic both ways, so that wouldn't be a problem, and I could make it where my schedule is only school 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). Do you think that it's too long of a drive?
The longest commute I've ever had to work/school is 20 minutes, so I'm not really sure what I'm getting myself into. It would only be for 2 years (and only late August to early December, and January to early May), but I can't decide if the commute is going to be too much. My dh says it's completely my decision.
So, has anybody made a commute like that before and what is it like?
