NeverThatBored Dreams of Electric Packing


Recommended Posts

I'm in the middle of packing up my apartment and putting everything into storage. It's an experience. I'm even packing in my dreams. I've never packed up an apartment entirely by myself before. This could have been very difficult. And it is a lot of work, but compared to the events of 2020 and other things I've had to do, this is nothing.

 

I'll be packing through the 13th and all posts until then will be related to getting that done.

 

After that, here are some challenge goals:

  • Start cutting back on coffee, with the goal of going without it at least 2 days/week
  • Do daily movement of some sort. Ideally something I'm not already doing consistently like yoga or mobility or walking more. I'm consistent with workouts already but they still count. 
  • Do 1 thing that needs to be done daily. If there are no things, celebrate!

Packing is the woooooorrrrrrrrst. Do you have a new place lined up or are you just storing stuff and going home for a bit to figure out your next step?

Packing continues! I've got one, maaaaybe two, more trips to the storage unit that I can make with my car before Saturday. I've got some more bins to load in, and then I'll be pretty much done with all neatly box shaped things. That leaves furniture and a bunch of awkwardly shaped stuff. 

 

I'm getting a UHAUL van on Saturday for the furniture. I have two big pieces I have to store, so I've been saving room in the storage unit for that. Once those are in I can fill in all of the awkward stuff. I'm pretty sure there's plenty of space, but it FEELS like there isn't because I have to get the furniture in first.

 

I'm pretty nervous about driving the van, even though it's not THAT big.

 

Simultaneously, I just had some work done on my car. It's annoying to pay (A LOT) for car repairs when I'm about to be away from the car, but I felt like I should have it done because my friend is going to drive it for me on occasion and I want everything to be safe. So that's done now too.

Sooooo this was a challenge I totally remembered that I started.

Despite my absence here, I did successfully get everything packed and jammed into my storage unit. It's so full I look like a hoarder, but I did it! Strong

 

I also drove a uhaul one day for the larger stuff, which as some of you may know was particularly terrifying for me because I am a nervous driver. I've come so far! 

 

Now I'm in California living with my father and I have no idea what to do with my life from here wheeeeeeeeee this is all totally fine 

 

I'm not a big new years resolution person, but in January I wanted to do SOMETHING so I started attempting a pullup on the outdoor pullup bar I set up this summer at least once/day when I take my dog outside. Within a few weeks, I'd regained my ability to do pullups! Then last week, I did TWO PULLUPS IN A ROW for the very first time in my life!!! 

 

Pretty good ROI for a small daily action. Fire

 

So now I'm thinking about another very small action that I can do and actually posting that as a challenge when the next challenge starts. I'm thinking of a few options at this point:

  • Daily mini walk 
  • Daily movement break during the workday (any movement),
    • or doing the darebee daily dare challenge 
    • or a slight variation, a daily "step outside and sit for even just a minute" 
  • Daily work on studying Japanese even if it's just a minute or two (I pretty much entirely stopped studying when covid hit and I couldn't go to classes anymore)
  • Daily toe touch stretch

I'm trying very hard to resist my Captain Rangerbrain impulses and just. pick. one. of these to focus on.

Very belated reply. :)

 

I'm in California staying with my dad for now. IDK long term because I now have too many options and no clear direction.

I hope it gives you some time of rest and you are able to see the next step you need to take.
