It appears that my roommate and I will be moving shortly, into what feels like our backyard, but is actually a much cheaper apartment, the complex of which bumps up against our backyard. Handy, eh? Well, it would be, but for the tall tall fence separating us from it... Due to its uncompromising and unhelpful presence, we're still going to have to pack up and rent/borrow some form of truck, even though we're moving a grand total of (as the crow flies) about 100 yards. C'est la vie!
Moving stresses me out hardcore. Presently my plan for moving consists of:
3. Executing actual move.
As vague and seemingly common-sense as that approach sounds, I'm rather worried that I'm just going to be stuck on Item One indefinitely. As quickly as I organize one stack/drawer/box, of items/material/paper, another pile seems to appear. Aghhhhh! I have resolved to eliminate this problem somewhat by packing said stack/drawer/box immediately after it is organized, but as some things are in daily use and really can't be packed yet, I don't know how successful this plan will be.
Have I mentioned that I'm awful at packing? Last summer, moving into this apartment, was the first time I actually had to fill boxes and transport furniture -- having lived in the same house during the whole of my childhood, my few moves up until that point predominately consisted of throwing a few suitcases and a desk-lamp into my car and driving the few miles to my new dorm room, and then (post-college) a mile further to my first apartment... So, this is definitely only my second attempt at a full-fledged, civilized, my-apartment-has-furniture type of move.
If anyone has any suggestions or advice, let me know. I need it.
