The Long Island Coincidence

So i was just looking at a job opening in Ronkonkoma, Long Island. It seems like a good position, I may apply for it.

But Ronkonkoma is waaaaaaaaaaay EAST on Long Island and I’m waaaaaaaaaaay WEST (Brooklyn is on the western-most tip of Long Island.)

So the commute could be an hour and a half by car.  Each way.


My friend “Big Mike” used to do that exact commute in reverse,  from Ronkonkoma to Brooklyn. And I wad thinking about Big Mike.

When all of a sudden I get a text.  Yep… from BIG MIKE!!!

Something completely random about him knowing about an apartment in Brooklyn and if I knew of anyone looking to let him know.

HOLY CRAP!  That was frickin BIZARRE. I think I have psychic powers after that one.


And yes, I realize that I could, in theory,  move to closer in Long Island. I don’t own the place I’m living in.  It would be a huge change from Brooklyn.

But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.



  1. I currently have a tough commute.

    Usually 1hr and 15min in the morning and 1hr and 30min in the afternoon. Over the last two years I have put 70,000 miles on my car.

    It’s tough but I really enjoy what I do, so it is a sacrifice I am willing to make.

    However if you can find a place closer, whew!!
