Pack your things in heavy-duty corrugated brown boxes. They hold up better in transit. Don’t go cheap on the truck rental either – you’ll want at least 865 cubic feet of cargo space. If you find a letter from an old flame in a dresser drawer, do not read it. The nostalgia will only distract you, and you’ll be compelled to look her up on social media. It will become apparent that she’s doing well for herself on the East Coast, and you’ll still be here with all these boxes to load as the last of the sunlight bleeds away.

         
Hawkelson Rainier dabbles in short fiction and poetry from time to time. His debut novel, The Lake Erie Lights, It is available at Kellan Publishing.

  1. I have moved too many times over the decades. I have lived in my current place for almost 19 years (come May), but hope to have at least one more move in me. Sadly, I lost a ton of stuff in past moves because I couldn’t afford to take them with me. During one move, my parents only allowed one toy since we couldn’t afford to rent a moving truck or trailer.
