Commuting (乘车上下班) doesn’t have to be terrible. I used to hate jumping on the train or taking the bus, but not any longer now. I always have a book ready, or my iPod loaded up with materials for me to listen to. I’ve learned a lot while sitting on trains, buses and airplanes. Here are a few things you can do while commuting:
1. Read a Book
You may not have time to read books, but if you’re commuting and doing nothing, you’re wasting a good opportunity to get friendly with the interesting world of books. If you aren’t a good reader, it may feel hard to get started, but as you keep reading, you’ll find it more and more fun.
If you’re eager to become a writer of any kind, you can carry a laptop, put on some music and start writing while sitting on the train or bus. If you don’t have a laptop, there are a lot of ways to find a really cheap one. If you’re only using it for writing and surfing the web, you don’t really need the best one.
