Thank goodness that many people still have not yet returned from their holidays because parking and BART today was extremely smooth and stress-free. In addition to finding a great space immediately, BART was on time, and there were even a couple seats left. Furthermore, everyone seemed to be in a fairly good mood; wearing new clothes they bought or received for the holidays, carrying new purses, wearing new ties or shoes, and feeling well rested.
I still have a recovering case of post-holiday depression but overall, I am ready to tackle the new year.
Happy 2008, everyone. Here's to a smooth year of BART commuting.
