Moving is the second most stressful transition outside of death?

A friend told me this recently.. It sounds like an extreme perspective. But I am starting to believe it is true.

Of course it is not that close to death (not that I can say I remember what it is like to die…) but in terms in having a whole body / whole brain re-orientation about where I stay, where I drive to go home, where I park, where I learn my short cuts, where I go shopping. It is like hitting a massive reset button.

In the past, moving wasn’t that terrible. I think I averaged moving once every two years for most of my adult life. That is pretty crazy!

So as it stands now, my attempting to get ready for massage school (an intensive, 600 hours of training in 12 weeks) while I am down-sizing and moving out of my apartment. Is insane. Just nuts.

Next time, I am going for the sub-leasing option (I did not discuss this, but next time, I will at least try!).

I have some home study books to be reading, but I have barely read three pages in the month of January. Kind of need to finish that work soon (not going to happen). At least the massage school allows us to finish up to a month after we graduate (thank goodness!!!).

Note to self. Try to find a grand apartment to rent that I love. OR start saving again for a down-payment on a nice small house.

Thanks for putting up with the raving of a crazy moving adventuring massage student!


P.S. if you want to contribute to my massage training costs or to my blogging efforts, please feel free! 🙂
