Moving out!

There’s nothing like moving home to give you the illusion of a new start in life. Nothing has dramatically changed, I’m just resting my head in a new apartment.

But it feels so good.

A while ago I wrote about renting in your 20’s and how you have to put up with a lot of bullshit from neighbors, landlords and sometimes flatmates. Anyone who follows me on Twitter will have known that I wasn’t having the best time in the building I previously lived in. I argued with noisey neighbors, was approached by creepy people in the lift and didn’t gel with my new flatmate (although she was lovely, we were just too different and had different work patterns).

So I downsized. A smaller room with a cute balcony to watch Manchester traffic go by. I’m still sharing and I’m still in Manchester city center; but I’m in a better environment.

With this ‘fresh start’ I decided it was time to stop being such a depressing prick, or at least try anyway. So with that said here’s all the things I’m going to try and do to make myself normal again:

– Start eating meals at home again
– Actually leave my bedroom and sit in the living room
– Join the gym again
– Start saving again after forking out deposit fees for moving

And start work on Youtube PROPERLY.

Here’s me trying to be Casey Niestat. Enjoy!

    I have always stated that if you don’t feel good in one place, change it. I don’t see myself sharing a house with anyone, I prefer the pay more and have my own flat. It’s such a huge difference and it makes you feel so much better being able to do whatever you want whenever you want without having a constant fear that you will disturb someone else.

    Moving can be a very stressful experience. I’d get signed up to a gym soon so you can start training and enjoy the happy hormones released during exercise it will make you feel much better x

    I moved out last year and it was the best feeling ever, changing places can be stressful but this sounds like it was for the best! x

    I completely get what you are getting at, living somewhere you don’t feel welcome is the worst I should know. Good luck with your move x

    Awww congrats and hope things will be better for you in this apartment and get to gel with neighbours and flatmates. After I finished uni I shared three apartments before I gave up and found one I could afford alone and it was best move ever.

    Hope you get settled soon – Joining the gym and eating meals at hope are the top two that will help 🙂 x

    Congrats on the move! When your home life is stressful it can definitely leave you feeling depressed.

    Good luck with your move! Those are some awesome goals you’ve set for yourself as well 🙂

  17. April 14, 2017 / 11:59 am

    You can do all this if you put your mind to it and I am sure you are already doing them now. All the best with these goals, having your own flat will be awesome.
