as some of you may know, i'm moving to vancouver at the end of august. it is super exciting and at the same time kind of terrifying. it'll be my first time moving away from home. i'll miss having a gigantic HDTV.

i'm sure a mature and sophisticated forum like SE has some good moving stories. or any stories. really. stories stories.

    Just never move some place for a girl.

    That's the worst plan.

    I love you, Orik, move here to be with me instead

    I moved from the big city to a small town back in 2000

    it was nice not being in an obscenely overcrowded high school

    My family's new cottage is just about finished and we spent yesterday moving boxes full of dishes and bedsheets and stuff in. Good times

    I've changed towns like five times in the past year

    lived on my own for the first time when I was 16

    can't even imagine (A) having lived in the same town my whole life or (B) living with my parents still

    I moved to Seoul a year ago last February! That was pretty big.

    Also when I was in college, my lease had gone up and I didn't have a car and everyone was out of town. So I made a batch of blackberry mint juleps and drank all day and moved my stuff to my new apartment in a Radio Flyer, piece by piece.

    E: Living in New York was the most fun ever

    people give beds away on craigslist a lot

    I'd bet Orik can find a fine bed for less than $50 in a day or two after moving to vancouverton

    Yeah, moving is pretty excellent for making you look at all the ridiculous accumulations of stuff we all end up carrying around.

    Turns out I can leave virtually anything at all behind except books, which is pathetic since books are also the heaviest thing to move next to furniture.

    Seriously. Unless you're the type who is attached to stuff in general. If not, trust that there will be stuff in Vancouver too. And enjoy it up there.

    So, don't do that?

    In the last three years, longest I stayed in one place was about 6-7 months. That was in my very first apartment! Since then, I've been shuffling around all over the place. It's tiring.

    I went back to school; the main reason being I wanted to have a solid place to stay for awhile. Unfortunately some of my classes won't transfer, and I have to wait one more semester before I can go to the University I was planning on.

    I used to have a whole lot of crap. The main thing I've culled is video games. I also ended up getting rid of my desktop computer and a lot of books. (I know books are great, but they're really heavy, too.)
