1. At first, you’re so happy and excited to be moving to a new place.

2. But then you realize that moving is actually hell.

3. First you realize that you’ve shoved everything into one closet and fear having to pack all the stuff that’s in it.


4. You end up finding old pictures and videos that you regret taking.
