My first blog post.
Be afraid... be very afraid...
Have you ever moved? It's not all it's cracked up to be. I don't mean that in a "it's not as a good as they say it is" way, but I also don't mean that in a "it's not as bad as they say it is" way either. In fact, I guess I mean it in both ways and neither ways at once.
(I know, I know, I'm not always good at explaining my thoughts in ways that people who aren't INTPs can understand them... and if you don't know what an INTP is read this page or this page.)
Anyway, (yes I do abuse brackets and return keys) I am moving right now. It's very hectic, yet fun, yet so unlike how people describe it.
This is my second time moving. My moving experiences have all been rather different from those of others because I come from a family of people who tend to do these things themselves and therefore, they don't hire moving companies. We also don't just move from one house to another like most people do either... we move half out stuff from the house we sold into two different rented storage bins and then move the other half to a too small rental that belongs to a family member who occasionally stops in for a few days thus making it even more crowded, and then we take what was supposed to be a few months into a year or more because we can't find a house to buy and the one we do find needs lots of work but it will be just right for us when it is done and on top of that it is in our price range because we want to pay cash for a house, the last thing we want is a mortgage and I just realized that was the biggest run on sentences EVER. Then we turn around and buy the house, and being the DIY family we are we start renovating it ourselves and then we start moving out stiff into it from the storage bins to save the money and use it on the house so now we're working on a house that has stuff in boxes stacked all over town, because as of yet we have no cabinets or closets to put this stuff away in.... and now on top of all that we're moving into it, which means all that stuff from the rental needs to come over and pile in as well.
I think it's a very cool thing to move into a new house and arrange your bed room and put everything away and organize your book shelves and stuff, but getting to that part- getting the books and the shelves to the house in other words- kinda sucks, Especially in the dead of winter in the northern USA when the rental you're still in is so cold every morning that you... well, I don't know if this is a good way to say it in public, but when the rental you're moving from but still living in is so cold that when you wake up you have to find your hind end and re attach it it.
(Well, it is cool, but not in the awesome typed cool, more in the cold cool)
But there's fun stuff too. Like finding stuff in boxes from 8 years ago that you had no idea you even owned and it is so like Christmas in December...
Wait. Christmas IS in December.
Its so much like Christmas when it isn't Christmas that it's awesome.
So anyway, yeah. That's what I'm doing right now and that's what I think about moving.
If you have any thoughts... comment! :)
