Going to the dentist, finals week, moving; what do all three of these things have in common? They’re all absolutely terrible. These past few days I’ve been moving out of my apartment and UGH, it’s such an awful, awful task. Why? Because of the four following reasons:
1) No matter how efficiently you try to pack everything, you always end up making at least 8,900,349 trips. Back and forth, back and forth. Bonus points,(if that’s what you want to call them),if you live on the third+ floor of your apartment building, like I do.
2) The weather almost always NEVER cooperates whenever it’s moving day/weekend. It’s either pouring rain or swelteringly hot. It’s like Mother Nature peers into my room, spots my calendar and says, “Oh, Gabrielle is moving next weekend? Bring on the heat waves!”
3) Sometimes, depending on when leases end and begin, you can wind up being “homeless” for a few days. I have to move out of my current apartment by a certain date, but can’t move into my new place until five days later! So guess who is couch surfing and living out of her car for five days? This girl.
4) Sometimes, when I’m packing up all my things, I imagine that they will all magically travel to my new apartment. Then I snap back to reality and realize, “crap….I have to move all of this stuff AGAIN.”
What do you hate most about moving, Lovelies?
