All this uncertainty bugs me →
[More:] I loathe moving. And I try to avoid moving as much as possible. But at the end of this month, when my current lease ends, I have to move from the city where I've lived for the past 4.5 years. But it gets more complicated.
I am a month away from finishing my PhD so I am not going to renew another year lease. So I am moving back (mostly my stuff) with the folks (they live 2 hours away) and then couch surfing here for the last weeks before I turn in my dissertation. I am also interviewing for post-docs but I don't have a solid offer yet so I could be spending anywhere from 2 weeks - 3 months at home (which would drive me crazy).
I always enjoy any new city I move to but get anxious during the transition. So this means that I won't be a happy camper for the next several weeks.
The one upside to this ordeal is that I am purging practically everything I own
. I am just keeping the essentials (laptop, clothes, books) and all my kitchen gear (because I'm a food geek) but everything else is getting donated/sold or recycled.
