5 Feelings No One Talks About When You Move, As Told By Joey Tribbiani

Feelings can be overwhelming when your life is changing. But don't worry because you aren't alone, Joey is here.

NBC Universal

Moving is full of new experiences and A LOT of boxes; weather you are moving short distances or across the country. Getting to experience new occurrences is exciting but it can also suck having to pack up your whole life into boxes. Moving can also be scary, exhausting, and stressful. You might even feel as if you're on a rollercoaster of emotions.

I feel as there is no one better to express the mess of feelings that occur when you move than Joey Tribbiani.

1. Overwhelming Denial

You will get flooded with so many feelings that it seems impossible to process them. When was the last time you cleaned? This will be the last time you will ever be living in that place. You will have to pack up your whole life. You are going to find things you lost or completely forgot you had. Everything will seem like it is changing. Clearly the best way to deal with all these impending realizations is to push them deep down inside and deny them.

2. Mental Breakdown

Okay so the denial choice, not the best option. You are now in full fledged freakout mode. So many boxes. So much stuff. Why do you still have all those clothes you never wear? Why do you have so much lotion that you never use? How come all of your things aren't magically transported into a box? Why can't you just go buy all new stuff? You will never get to come home to this place anymore! You are getting older! Things are CHANGING!!!

3. Procrastination

After you have your panic attack, you realize you have so many more things you could be doing besides freaking out. Playing on your phone, going out with friends, exploring the new area, absolutely ANYTHING besides your adult responsibilities.

So why would you pack or unpack boxes when you can play cowboy and indians in a fort?

4. Second Mental Breakdown

After procrastinating your entire life away, you realize that everything needs to be done like right now! Where did everything go? How did you function with all this stuff in your life? Do you put your bed on the wall closet to the door or the wall closet to the window? Why can't you find the screws for your furniture!? What will your mom think of this?

5. Contentment

After all the struggles, all the sweat and tears, and all the panic attacks you went through, you finally realize that the new place you are living in is home. The rollercoaster of emotions was worth it. And change can be good!

So go order yourself some pizza. You deserve it!

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
