Moving…and Apartments…

with 2 comments

So, if you know me, you know that I am about to move again (sad day). I really despise moving…it’s one of those things that you know that you will have to do, but you never really want to do it. Why? Well, there are many, many reasons.

1) The process itself: Do you ever realize how much crap you accumulate while you live at a certain residence? I do because in the past few years I have moved at least 3 major times. Each time, I have realized exactly the junk that one gathers. You would be surprised…thankfully, I have only lived in these places a year at a time and thin my stuff out from time to time (one of my friends has mentioned that it seems like my family is always having a yard sale).

2)Finding the apartment: I like to go out and look at apartments. However, it’s always a hassle when it comes to some places. I mean really your people can’t go out while it is thundering….even if they’re only walking 200 feet…seriously, I just want to look at the freaking apartment. I don’t want to use them as a lightning rod. If I did, I would be way more crafty than that. Give me some credit. But on the other hand, it is good to see the differences and compare and contrast the product that they’re trying to sell me.

3) Leaving behind people and having to acclimate to another place/group of people: I hate moving most of all because I will have to leave people that I care about. Whether it’s a colleague that I regale stories of the workplace or a person I can sit and watch an episode of a television show with, I hate having to not be around them as much. I go through withdrawal from people…I also don’t like to get to know new people. Most people would probably think that I’m really outgoing; however, I am a little bit of an introvert…it’s one of those things that I’m not that great at. I like to be around the people I know and love….I shouldn’t have to know and love other people. Right?

So, yeah…soon, I will be transplanted again in another place. Here’s crossing my fingers and hoping that all ends well…

  1. Hi there,

    I read your post this morning and know exactly how you feel – and I love moving! But, I understand it can be a pain. I just made a big move from NYC to PA myself and am dealing with some culture shock for sure.

    Having moved around most of my life, I’ve relied on a couple theories to keep it positive – and even exciting.

    1. Getting rid of stuff is good for the mind, body and soul. We keep so many this that we don’t need – it feels good to purge it sometimes.

    2. A new apartment or house is a blank slate! If your bored of your decor or sick of the paint on the wall, now is the time to do something different with your home!

    3. Meeting new people is the hardest part (I’m an introvert too), but I like the idea of starting new friendships. The more people you meet, the more you learn about people and yourself. Clean slate too, which can be nice.

    Anyway, best of luck with your move. If you need any moving/packing tips, let me know I have a ton!

    • Thanks for the hints. I think pretty much the same way that you do. Honestly, I tend to be really good at moving…I just don’t like the whole process in itself. Eh…C’est la vie.
