6 Things All People Who Move Around NYC Can Relate To

Moving apartments in the Big Apple is so stressful!

6 Things All People Who Move Around NYC Can Relate To

Spending the last two years in a dorm was pretty much terrible. So getting out to find an apartment was very exciting...until we had to actually move into the apartment. Here are 6 things anyone would absolutely hate about moving in the Big Apple.

1. Moving furniture around NYC is hard.

The city is especially not nice to you when you’re trying to lug around furniture from point A to point B. Will the dining table you bought off of the Free and For Sale Facebook page fit in an Uber? Will it even fit in the elevator?

2. You get REALLY lazy.

Looking at the mess around your new apartment, you really just do NOT want to touch that mess. Then you just get really really REALLY lazy.

3. Do not take furniture for granted!

Spending two days without furniture was rough. You miss your bed, your desk, and even a drawer or closet for your clothes. Do NOT take them for granted at ALL!

4. Or WiFi!

Might be sounding like a millennial, but living a week without wifi is HARD. In our case, three girls starting their internships really needed to use wifi to e-mail their employers. We might have spent more time at a nearby café than we did in our apartment.

5. You eventually get sick and tired of all the mess.

6. Everyone is NOT on your schedule.

One thing not to do when moving: PROCRASTINATE. The main reason we had a couple of days without furniture and no wifi is because we procrastinated in calling the movers, people who set off the wifi, etc. They were all booked around the time we were moving in and the earliest dates were all a week later.

So if you're moving in the big city, do NOT be us!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
