Our dear Pileofmonkeys gave some really good advice about moving the other week. It’s very practical. But I’m not practical.
Stage 1: Denial
Your place is perfect. It’s cute. Packing means it’ll be less perfect. You don’t need to pack!
Stage 2: Anger
Why do you have all this stuff? Why won’t it fit in the truck? Why is your new apartment so small? WHHHHYYYY?
Stage 3: Bargaining
Would you buy my couch for $75 so I don’t have to move it? Would you help me drive the truck for a six-pack of beer?
Stage 4: Depression
Your place is now empty. And sad. There’s no art on the walls and you can’t find your corkscrew.
Stage 5: Acceptance
The truck is packed, you’re on the road! Unpacking is so much easier than unpacking! Off you go!
