Leaving Tuscaloosa

After living in Tuscaloosa for 6 years and 2 degrees, I packed up last month and moved back to my hometown. With the help of my dad, I managed to fit everything into a couple car loads and still left a small place for B to sit.

Moving was a little easier this time as majority of my furniture was already in storage (I moved in with a co-worker a few months ago so that I wouldn’t have to sign a new lease). Also, I cleaned out everything! If you are going through the hassle of packing away your things, why not use it as an opportunity to get rid of things you don’t really use/need.  When left alone, I generally convince myself to keep things I probably shouldn’t with thoughts like “I’ll still wear this” or “I can totally fit into this again.” My friend, Brittney, aided in decision making and I took a lot of clothes to Plato’s Closet in Tuscaloosa. They were very easy to work with! I also took a lot of clothes and kitchen ware to King’s Home a charity which helps abused women and children get back on their feet.

After all of the cleaning out and packing, moving itself really only took a couple of hours (minus driving time). B was not excited about leaving his best dog friend, Sam. However, he has since warmed up to the idea of living with my parents due to the soft beds, yogurt, and all of the food he is slipped by my nieces and nephews.
