I don't think I'd take a job where the atmosphere seemed sad AND I had a long commute. In fact, I'd have to be really excited about a job before I'd drive that far...and you don't seem very excited. (Until you mentioned this, I was with Paula and Darcy on this one, but I've changed my mind).
I know you need to go to work, but there will be other jobs. Although you didn't get it, there was one just last week. Better hours, closer to home. You'll find something!
