You’ve made it through. The first couple of weeks of classes are behind you. You’ve figured out how to navigate your way around town, deciphered the mysteries of the T schedule, and have finally gotten your parents to stop calling every single morning to make sure you’re up.
There’s only one problem. We’re not going to name names, but let’s talk about your roommate. You know which one. He’s there, eating the last of your peanut butter — with a knife that won’t get washed before spring break, if he has anything to do with it. Or maybe she’s the borrowing type — who thinks nothing of helping herself to your clothes, your computer, your credit card…
Sometimes what seemed like an ideal Boston college living experience turns out to be not so great. What are you going to do? You can’t tolerate that kind of living situation for long — particularly if you want to keep your grades (not to mention your bank balance!) up. You can’t go home again — the semester has just started. But you’re really not prepared for the hassle and headache of moving all of your stuff from one apartment to the next…not to mention a serious lack of wheels, which can slow the process down even more.
What you need is a small load residential move — something also called a student move by insightful packaging companies who realized that students are the primary group who need this type of service. You can move your bed, your furniture, your computer, your clothes, musical instruments, your sports equipment gear and whatever groceries your roommate hasn’t already scarfed down quickly and affordably.
Don’t beat yourself up over this decision. It happens. Sometimes people make great friends — but terrible roommates. A change of scenery might allow you to hold onto the relationship while maintaining a higher quality of life for yourself!
