Moving Out Doesn't Totally Suck

By Lola Isiaka on May 30, 2017

A lot of people neglect how dreadful moving out is. In fact, I think it’s even more dreadful than finals itself.

Moving out requires spending an immense amount of time cleaning your dormitory and packing up all your college stuff. This is literally the most time-consuming thing I have ever engaged in. And let’s not forget how much lifting that has to be done, so for future college students I highly suggest you come prepared to have a sore back at some point in time.

Although, many could argue that there come advantages with moving out. For instance, not having to see that annoying freshman roommate you had to deal with for eight months or no longer having to see your least favorite professor three times a week. However, I argue that these are neither the worst nor the best parts of moving out.

The worst and the best part about moving out is reliving the beautiful memories of your college year.

As you stuff all your souvenirs from on-campus events or free university t-shirts into your cardboard boxes, all the memories just come rushing back. This is the worse part because you realize how time is passing by and how you’ve taken for granted your college friends or experiences. And you begin to wish you had taken greater advantage of your college experiences. However, this is also the best part about moving out — because you realize you now have new, beautiful memories.

Secondly, as you finish up packing the last of your belongings you begin to realize how much self-growth you have achieved. After all, it was only a few years ago when you were in high school, but now you have had to be self-reliant in order to get through the college years.

All in all, moving out sucks, but it doesn’t totally suck. Because you now share a bond with new people. You now have new experiences at new places and, most importantly, you have experienced self-growth.
