|Some friends say that they'll go to hell and back for you. But how many friends are willing to go to Cleveland at 3 am for you?|
So I have survived my first grown up move. Moving as an adult, it turns out, is radically different from moving as a student.
I have moved long distances before. For example, I moved to Europe. However, moving as an adult alone from an apartment filled with furniture, books and other things I want to keep is tremendously different.
One thing I learned is that packing involves Zeno's Dichotomy Paradox, which goes something this:
Suppose it takes 2 hours to pack half your stuff. It then will take approximately 2 hours to pack the next half of your stuff, or 1/4 of your total stuff. The next half of your stuff (1/8 of your total stuff) will also, surprisingly, take 2 hours, and so on.
So... how long does it take to pack all your stuff? Before I was aware of the Zeno's Paradox problem, I had figured it would take about 8 hours to pack all my stuff. But like any math teacher will tell you it will take an infinite amount of time to pack all your stuff. This is a real phenomenon, and one that I plan to account for in my next move.
I am really excited to be in my new home. There are things I'm going to miss, like my friends. My close friends in Chicago are amazing and irreplaceable.
Other things I will miss in my new home includes things like Indian food. There isn't an Indian restaurant for at least 50 miles.
