I got accepted into my dream university in Ansbach close to Nuremberg. It was an amazing feeling. Now I can study what I really want to get closer to my dream career. That was the start to move into a new city, start a new life and experience totally different and new things.
As soon as I got the good news I started apartment hunting. Mostly I searched online. Then I contacted the landlords or realtors and made appointments to go see the apartments. It only took me 2 times to drive to the universities city to find my first apartment. Within those 2 times I had about 5 different appointments. I can tell you I saw everything from super nice to super disgusting. At the end I found my dream apartment and I couldn't be more happy about it.
Then I had to go back to Ansbach one more time to sign the rental contract. I can't believe that I have my very own apartment. You can't believe how happy I was. Moving out and finally having your own place is something I wanted in a very long time.
After the bureaucratic stuff was all done I started packing. At first I packed everything I didn't need anymore. I packed every night for maybe half an hour so it didn't got to much.
Within the next 3 weeks I went multiple times to different furniture stores, mostly to Ikea, and bought stuff. Oh yes, I spent way too much money but to feel comfortable in my new home I thought it was worth it.
The next step was to go get the keys. And then I had exactly one week left. Since it was quiet far I booked a moving company. I can tell you it was so easy and the best decision ever. I will definitely do it again and it was not that expensive.
Within 5 hours the move was done. From Munich packing everything into the transporter, driving 2 hours to Ansbach and unpacking the transporter. I have to say those moving guys knew what to do. It was such a relief - nothing broke.
After that the unpacking started. My boyfriend, my mom and another friend helped and so within a couple of hours the most was unpacked and had its place. The next day my boyfriend and I built my new wardrobe from Ikea. Only one of the things that made it into my shopping cart.
And then the main part was done. Now I have to make it feel like home. But I can tell that it already does.
Within that series I will share more of my moving process. I hope you enjoy that series.
Lots of love,
