If I leave my house at 9:05, I shouldn't not get to campus until 10am. Grrr. The 68 is supposed to leave at 9:15, but nooooo, I walk out there at around 10 after, and then finally see it going the OTHER way at 9:22. So then I walk to friggin central friggin square and wait for the number 1, which is supposed to leave every 12-14 minutes, only to wait for another 30 minutes during which I see no fewer than THREE number 1's going... wait for it... the OTHER friggin way. Sigh. And I forgot my hat.

If you went to central square why not just walk the rest of the way, it's like half a mile. Ten minutes..

Seriously. I live several blocks from central square and it takes me 15 minutes to get to campus.

On the other hand, the weather sucked today. A lot.

Sounds like a drastic overstatement.

This is a million times better than when it's pouring rain on top of the snow and ice.

Sometimes I walk if it seems like the number 1 is taking a while. I just try to optimize based on lateness potential, among other factors (like weather-appropriate clothing). This morning, my only shot of not getting to class late was if the bus showed up. Had I walked, I necessarily would have been late to class, and I also would have been even snow-covered, sweaty and windburnt. (windburned?). It was a tough call. Sigh.

Just walk every day and eliminate the randomness.

That's not a bad idea...
