Metro just started using 8-car trains on the Orange line to ease some of the crowding. It's been a long time since I've used that line during rush hour, so that news didn't mean much to me. However, Wed night I trekked out to Clarendon for dinner with PE. It was around 7:15, the mad rush should've been over. Nope! I didn't even get a seat for a few stops. When I finally did, I had to squeeze into my little space - no spreading out. The aisles were even packed. I'm not used to sharing anymore. Thursday morning on my red line commute to work, I only had to share the entire car with 6 people. That's it! Even coming back into the city from VA at 10pm, I had to wait for a seat. Where are all these people going?! Thank goodness for a reverse commute. I'm so spoiled.
I hadn't traveled out to VA in quite awhile; I'd forgotten about perfect little suburbia. Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Barnes and Noble, all those little chain shops and restaurants. I'm a fan, I can't deny, but it's a totally different world from my neighborhood. I wonder when I'll pack up from the ghetto and move outside the city. Not looking like any time soon, but who knows what'll happen?
