Hey! The difficulty of a commute to uni is dependent on a few factors; the distance you're travelling, your mode of transport and the reliability of your mode of transport 👀.
I used my commute to listen to music, catch up on a podcast, and sometimes i would read a book! It was a nice way for me to start the day.
I did find it a bit difficult at first. The train service i use isn't exactly the best; my trains are often delayed/cancelled. However, i figured out ways to make my commute a lot easier! I tried to avoid taking the train at peak times, though this wasn't always possible. If my classes finished around 4/5, i would often go to my library and do a little studying for a few hours, so that when it was time to go home, i didn't need to deal with the cramped and delayed trains. When i had to take the train during rush hour, i stood as far down the platform as possible where there are fewer people, to ensure i got some breathing space when on the train! It's the little things.
Other modes of transport, such as driving, or taking the bus, come with their own issues too! However, as time goes on you'll manage to figure out how to make your commute easier and much more convenient :)
