The thing I am looking forward to the least is the commute. Till now, I've never had a regular commute longer than 15 minutes. Now I'll be lucky if I can keep the drive to 30 minutes. Traffic shouldn't be a huge problem till the last few miles of the trip. Most of it is on the smaller county roads, but the last couple stretches have larger interchanges which can back up very easily. Here's a map of the route I plan on taking in the morning.

I'll try to take some pictures of the office and post them later. It's a nice building in a nice part of town. There's a high school nearby (which should make for nice game night traffic).
The biggest downsides are
- I'll have to shower everyday
- I'll have to shave more than once every 2 weeks
- I won't be able to work in my pajamas (likely, haven't checked for sure)
I'm still hoping to be able to work from home on occasion.
