Jumping on one leg impacting bodies right and left

The joy of moving into a new place sometimes outweighs the pain of leaving a place you came to call home.

Joys - figuring out you have so much dross that you need to get rid of - I wasn't going to take a suitcase home in December, but now I may, or at least give away a bunch of the stuff that I have here that I don't need - who needs 13 pairs of pants.

- Figuring out where to put all your stuff - what to do with the two 'good' t-shirts that you always wear when you're going out and want to look casual but nice, so much that people comment about it if you don't wear them.

- The clean, spartan feeling of having a new, arranged room.

- Having a desk for the first time in a year - no more typing on the floor

- Knowing the adjustment to a new place isn't going to be as bad as you think it might be.

Pains - having to adjust to having housemates again

- Realizing that you have a ton of junk

- Trying to figure out what to do with all your new space.

All in all, having a new place is nice, though.
