13 years I’ve lived in Clapham, ever since my last year at university.
Which means for 13 years I’ve being using the Northern Line to get into town every day.
An hour a day in total, 5 days a week, 48 weeks a year.
That’s 130 days of my life.
Fighting to get on every morning, having to stand there with people’s armpits in my face or elbows in my back.
Even if I wasn’t going anywhere exciting, the knowledge that I won’t have to deal with the tube for a year fills me with joy.
