Two weeks ago was my final day at Western Kentucky University and boy it was a memorable one: my marketing team filmed the In My Feelings Challenge, I taught one of the best classes of my life, and said “see you later” to the people who have become my family.
The very next day I woke up at 6am, packed up my apartment, and cleaned it like Martha Stewart because your girl needs that security deposit back. After 6 hours of intense labor and multiple trips to and from my car the in 95 degree hot Kentucky weather-it was done. The apartment was spotless, my utilities transferred, and the car packed like tetris. Just a year ago, I was moving into my cute studio apartment and one year later I was moving out. However, all for good reason! I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to be reunited with my fiance after enduring long distance for a year. I said my final goodbyes, downloaded podcasts, and after dropping off my spectrum modem I was on the road.
Everything went smoothly and it inspired me to share some tips with you on how to stay healthy during your move. I am not perfect so I really wish I would have done some of these. Ha! Hindsight is 20/20.
Before the move
Pro Tip: Pack a bag of things that you’ll need the night of. Trust me you’ll be thankful you did. The night I arrived I was looking through boxes for my toothbrush and shower items.
Whether you’re moving because you didn’t like your old place, got a new job, or going to college, etc- I hope these tips help you stay well while you unpack.
Who we are
