I'm massively downsizing my stuff. I have a lot of it - I have severe pack rat tendencies. So I'm going through everything, and getting rid of everything that I have but never use, that I want to use or wear but don't, or don't actually have a use for. I'm going to have a garage sale to share the wealth, and then donate the rest. I have to be able to fit everything I want to take in two carloads, with maybe a box or two shipped (with books, most likely) at a later date. The only 'big stuff' I can take is my trunk - and maybe my dresser, but probably not. I'll be living out of boxes for a while!
It's exhilarating to get rid of this stuff, and to start new in a sense. I'm surprised at how little the pack rat side of me is resisting. It's also a little disturbing that I have collected so much stuff over the years, and if I were to live somewhere else in California, I'd take it all with me.
At the very least, my collection of cardboard boxes will come in useful.
The fact that I'm moving is also settling down rather heavy. I don't know if it's a slowly bubbling up stress of all that needs to happen before I move or if it's just the realization of the task ahead. It helps to have support, so thanks to all those who are excited for me and helping me along the way.
