Out with the Old, In with the New

Getting prepped to move out of my apartment has involved a lot of sorting, recycling, donating, and contemplating. When I first moved to Philly, all of my belongings fit in four suitcases. Over the past few years, I have accumulated enough things to require hiring a moving service to transport everything to my new apartment. When I first started packing, I meticulously sorted everything into “Keep, throw away, or donate” piles. By box 4, I just wanted to get packing over with so I started throwing everything into random boxes. I’ll deal with it later!

Packing has also provided me with a lot of time to think. When I first started this site, I intended for it to go in an entirely different direction. I wanted this to be a place where I can explore creativity, be inspired, and hopefully in the process inspire others. I don’t know what it was about July, but everything seemed to be going wrong. I am sure that I will look back one day and understand why all of this was happening, but for now, all I can do is move forward in full belief that tomorrow is a new day full of opportunity and exciting things. I will be back on August 1 with new content, a regular posting schedule, and perhaps a new theme (something about my current theme reminds me of cupcakes…). Off to go pick up my new keys!

  1. Packing is an art. And moving, in my opinion, is more tolerable when you have people helping you! I am accumulating lots of things now that I have a room that is big enough to be called a living room. It’s scary, because I like to keep down to the necessities…but I guess it’s just another marker that I’m getting older.

    • It definitely is! The novelty wears off after packing the first few boxes. During my most recent move, I got two of my friends to help me. Throw in some dinner and some snacks and the move only took me a couple of hours. Thanks for visiting!
