I am a true believer in the phrase “everything happens for a reason.” Everyone is bound to experience a moment in time where you are instantly forced to see your life in a completely new light. At the drop of a hat, you must accept upon hearing shocking news that everything is going to be okay. This instant emotion one feels after hearing about a loss, an accident, or losing your job position can be described as a sort of out of body feeling where just 2 seconds go by and it feels like an eternity.
This moment occurred for me about 2 months ago when I got the sudden call from the HR department at my former agency. After shedding one solid tear, I took a deep breath and was ready to start planning how I would make a quick transition back to Chicago ASAP.
Moving requires more planning than you can imagine and it is a job in and of itself to move yourself in and out of an apartment. After having handled a move on my own from Chicago to NY after graduation, I had an idea of everything that needed to be arranged, although it was still a learning process and Brooklyn definitely has its’ inconveniences. One thing I learned is that you have to be patient and not expect that every service is going to be a seamless procedure. You will have to spend an entire day in your apartment waiting for the Com-Ed guy.
No matter where you are moving to and from here are some great tips to make the process a lot smoother for you whether you are on your own throughout the process, or you have the help of your spouse or roommates.
