    I just got the best job offer ever (very interesting and funny, and a very good salary despite me being very young and new to this) but it's in Oxford - which is an hour - hour and a half (depends on the traffic) away from here. So should I travel by car (in total, thats 3 hours of driving, not to mention the gas money) or should I move there to Oxford. I'm planning to keep this job btw

    If you plan to keep then move imo. You could commute for a few weeks to get a feel for it or just find a temp place to live till you find your bearings.

    definitely move there... 3 hours a day is a really long commute, it's going to be exhausting, if it's a job you're serious about (rather than a short ut up with it for a year type thing) then you're not going to want to commute forever so you should just get on with it and move

    Yes definitely move as 3 hours a day to commute is far too long. Find a temp place to live and see how you get on with your job first.
