Adventures on the Metra #2

Another wonderful week on the metra is wrapping up, and because I was slacking with my post last week, here are 2 weeks worth of pictures!

So far life on the metra is pretty nice. Well, there is this one issue I've encountered...

For the most part, metra riders are generally in their late 30s to early 50s. It makes for a parking lot of nice cars, but slow ass walkers on the platforms and stairs! I've wanted to yank my hair out numerous times whenever I find myself stuck behind someone with a snail's pace waddle. Seriously... you'd think someone could walk a bit faster equipped with their fanciest "easy tones" or "shape ups," but that's never the case.

Sidebar: When I was looking for my "commuter shoes" I was shocked to see a pair of shape ups that didn't make me throw up in my mouth. I even tried them on... but it was the strangest thing having my foot feel like it was on a rocking chair. Instead I opted for a cute pair of Puma athletic ballerina flats... and I've already broken them in running to catch my express train lol. For the record, it felt like I was running on air! The other pair of commuter shoes I chose were Sam Edelman ballerina flats. I found them on sale at Nordstrom Rack and the gold shine of the shoes instantly won me over. I'll wear gold anything so these shoes have quickly risen to the top of my favs list.
