I've been taking the purple line (the long way) to work. It takes longer but I don't really mind. The train isn't crowded and there's so many nice views of the city. Funny thing is, I keep seeing a familiar face on the train. Long story short; my friend tried to set me up with him, her co-worker, who already had a girlfriend. Weird, right? It's great, I sometimes say hi or wave and he gives me a small nod. I like to make things awkward. It's more fun that way.
