5 Struggles Of Moving Into A New Place

5 Struggles Of Moving Into A New Place

Moving into home sweet home, isn't always sweet.


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.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
