The Hassle of Moving
Today is a day that i will remember down the memory lane, not because its my birthday or anniversary, but because its moving day, yup - My significant other and i are moving to another place within the same street. Its been one year and 2 months since i moved to the Bay area and this is the first move for me after my relocation to the west coast. The reason we are moving-need for more space as special other's parents are visiting from India next week.
Its been such a hassle doing the packing, calling the movers plus the domestic chores of cooking with the limited time that we have after work on a weekday. I now fully understand what it actually means when people tell me what a pain it is to move, i can't even imagine folks with families-kids etc-how they manage to do it, its still ok to move when you are single-not that much of a bother- but with all the stuff that one has accumulated within the past year, it is indeed stressful and tiring.
Plus, for me, letting go of the memories -both the good and bad, that have been made in this first residence is so hard. I am this person who values stability and loves a routine in life. Change, especially in having another roof under your head is something that is so uneasy. The fact that i couldn't even think of moving to a different apartment in another street within the same area speaks volumes of my so-called "stubborn" Taurean nature.
Anyways, am just nostalgic about the last evening that i will be spending at my first home. Can't wait for the moving in and settling down to take place ASAP. That's it for today-folks.
