Attacking the Monster of Moving Day Madness (Day 0)
After weeks of anxious waiting and post office stalking I finally got the letter…the LARGE envelope letter — you all know what that means (drumroll please) Grad School Here I Come!!!
After dancing around my apartment building, calling everyone I knew, and startling various DC residents at the local CVS while buying celebratory chocolate–(yes to those of you who may have seen me, I wasn’t insane—just very very excited!), I finally calmed down enough to think through the logistics…
…and then the panic set in.
My lease here in Washington DC is up May 31st… I’ll be home with my parents in Los Angeles, CA from June 10-July 22, and moving to New York City hopefully August 1st.
…I have to plan for a double bi-coastal move…
That’s when the screaming started.
The next day, I felt a bit more levelheaded and so, after a lengthy consultation with my good friends Mr. Coffee and Madame Crême Glacée, I resolved to slay the Monstrous Moving Day Miscreant!
Armed with Google and a few brown boxes, I will attempt to create a planned order impenetrable to the panicked whirlwinds of chaos.
Follow my quest through my biweekly posts here on College Candy! I’ll be reviewing various online tools and products and, at the very least, you’ll find out what not to do on your next move.
