The only right answer is ditch the NYC commute.

Edit: Ask questions: For how long? Is this permanent? Why am I needed in NYC 3 days/wk.? How does this benefit the company and me as an employee? If you’re a top performer, this is an opportunity to stand your ground OR ask for more money. If you have to be in NYC 3 days/wk you’ll either need accommodations or you’ll be spending a shit ton on gas/train tickets. Either way going to NYC 3 days a week will cost you more money so IF you’re going to stay, they need to give you more money. Otherwise, 🖕🏻✌🏻.

My daily commute is exit 11 to exit 18. 89 can be treacherous in the winter just like any any highway. If you’re a cautious winter driver you will be fine. Take and slow and increase following distance. Watch out for the tractor trailers, most of them will be drive too fast for conditions. NHDOT usually does a pretty good job, but they’re dealing with driver shortage this year. You might drive through 3 or 4 different kinds of weather all on your way into work. Also, you’ll noticed your gas mileage will go down by few MPG communing that stretch of 89. You go up and down, up and down, and up and then finally down into the valley. This is also part of the reason why 89 can be dangerous in the winter as well. Careful on that S curve at Exit 15. That’s probably the spot where I’ve seen the most accidents and I have almost gone off the road there too. The other night it took me over an hour to get home and usually my commute is 25/30 minutes. Just plan for longer commutes on days with shitty weather. Good luck!!

It’s not that big of a deal. My elementary school had the same cut off. And I missed it by less than two weeks. The “young kids” of my grade wore it as a badge of honor. My best friend (to this day) was one of the other “young kids”. I can’t think of too many ways it affected me negatively.

Now a days, I think it’s better to be among the youngest in the grade. Graduate high school at 17 instead of 18. Graduate college at 21.

The only odd thing was celebrating my 18th birthday my first few months of Freshman year. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Drive to the Dartmouth Coach bus station in Lebanon, NH. Take the bus to South Station. You’ll be right in the city and can take the T, Uber, or walk to wherever you need to go.
