Out of the Loop

I feel like I am missing out on so much sitting in the same building all day long. At my old job, I was all over the area everyday. Talking to a bazillion people all day long and listening the radio in between stops, I was always up-to-date on everything that was pretty much going on everywhere. Now, I feel like I have no clue as to anything that is going on.

Driving in this morning, there was a huge backup on the thruway going in the opposite direction. And I am talking a miles-long backup. We usually don't get those around here - we can pretty much get just about anywhere in about twenty minutes, whether you're going from Buffalo to Niagara Falls or heading down to the Southtowns. I had no idea what caused the backup. No one in class comes from my part of town evidently, so no one saw the traffic. No one heard anything about it. When I got home, I couldn't find anything online in the news about it.

I am used to finding out just about anything after talking to one or two people. I guess this won't be the case anymore. I feel like I am going to be living in a little bubble or something. I don't think I am going to like it, but I guess I won't have much of a choice. This is going to take a lot of getting used to.
