5 Struggles Of Moving Into A New Place

Moving into a new place can be hard, whatever it is. Moving from a new place; from an old place or just starting fresh, everyone has been through it and everyone understands how hard it can be. The struggle of moving into a new place can be annoying and frustrating and sometimes is hard to keep your patience. This year I moved into a new place and my heart was full of excitement. This was my first apartment and I was clueless what I was getting myself into. Luckily, I had my parents to help me move all in and here are some struggles we had along the way.

1. Moving things up the stairs

Carrying up boxes, furniture and everything that needs to go in your apartment can be tiring and just plain hard. You carry up things -- all shapes and sizes -- and need to find the best way to get it up the stairs. Not only does this take strength, but it also takes some great planning.

2. Millions of trips to the store

Every trip to the store you walk out with bags full of stuff and somehow you have tons of stuff you still need to get. You always forget the things you went to the store for and you always think of more and more stuff you need. The list just keeps getting bigger and the trips continue to load up.

3. Building furniture

Everything that you have bought from Ikea and Wal-Mart that comes all neat in that little box? Yup, you have to build up all that furniture. Once you build the furniture, you feel super accomplished and like a champion, until you look over and see the stack of boxes you still have to unpack.

4. Rearranging furniture over and over again

As you move into your new place, you have an idea in your back of your head how you want it to look. This may seem like a good thing because it will help you set up, but in reality, your idea isn't the same as how it's going to look and how the person next to you wants it. Setting up furniture is a struggle because you constantly have to redo things to try to shape your ideal living area with the space that is provided.

5. Learning everything about your new place

Now that your all moved in all the worries are gone -- right? Nope, for the next few weeks you don't have any idea how to use anything and you always forget where everything is. This struggle is what comes along with a new place and the effect of having people help you move in. It seemed great when they helped you with the previous struggles but the help created a new problem; finding everything in your own house.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
