How quickly could you be prepared to move? Let's not get crazy with this hypothetical. Let's say you had as much time as possible, and could pack most anything of emotional significance to you. No one is pressuring you to get it done quickly or pressuring you to stay where you are.
How much time do you think it would take you to get ready? What items hold emotional significance to you?
I'm a fairly material person, and I have collected a lot of things over time, but I found it surprisingly easy to pack and clean.

About twenty minutes.
I have very little.
That woman's head and hair is a very unusual shape.
I'm surprised anyone could have so little that it would only take 20 minutes, but I suppose you can fit a lot into a box in 20 minutes.

The only things I really have are my clothes, computer, and knife set.
I dont have much clothing and the only must to keep is my chef's jacket.
Pc is just unplug and packet. And my knife set has a handy satchel.

I didn't mean for it to come off that way.
Is it the knives?
I'm a culinary student if that makes it less strange.

It's nothing you did, Lamb. You're a sweet person and I don't think you could do anything genuinely harmful to me. I just meant having so little to pack makes me feel a little unsettled; it's a bit of an irrational feeling. It wasn't meant as anything bad.
There's nothing wrong with collecting knives, even if you didn't study cooking. People collect all kinds of things.

It took Andrea and I maybe 10 days to complete a move completely by ourselves last year. That includes packing and moving the junk by ourselves and cleaning the old place.
If the question is a rough idea of the amount of stuff we have, I think we could pack it up in a day or two, assuming that's just getting it into boxes.
In terms of the important stuff, I'm not very material, but probably my board game collection and corresponding miniatures. Though even that isn't really about emotional significance. I think if all my stuff burned down, the only thing I'd care about losing emotionally would be maybe the minis I've painted and a few teddy bears I've had since childhood.

I just dont ask for s lot and keep the things I have for as long as possible until they have to be replaced.
Plus I sold a lot of things I had to pay for what will be described as a failed investment.
So what us needed and what I am geaceouly given by my parents to help me.
It is nice.
It is very amazing when you back your life up and see how little of a footprint you actually make.
Done it before so I guess I have a hard time becoming attached to physical things.

I wonder how many people have a furnitured house now and how many people just tear open a cardboard box and sleep with a sweater on.

Depends. If I'm the only one who has to leave, still a while. I have to pack both for me, and a 75lb dog.
If it's involving my entire family? I've got 26 of those dogs that will need to be moved to a new location as good as I have now, yards prepared for them to move around in, etc. Then there's the goat and two sheep that would need to be found a new home as well.
I can't just pick up and leave.

I have a suitcase that has my most precious material belongings in it.
I would throw it in the car and go.
But if it was just a regular move to a new home, maybe about three to four days. Mostly to clean the old place up after everything has been moved out of it.

Expanding on this a bit, I have literally had to move so many times in the last couple years that I do not hold onto physical things like I used to.
At one point I had to leave in the middle of the night, only being able to grab, as quickly as I could, what I wanted and could fit into two suitcases.
Stress is one hell of a wake up call and you realize how easy it is to just walk into a thrift store and buy the clothes you need when you need them.
Now that being said, it's not a fun situation to be in and I would have loved to have taken the special set of dishes that I had been collecting, and some of the chapters that I had started to write, or some of the books I didn't really want to rid of yet.
But it wasn't the end of the world, and with how bad the fires got this year in Cally, I need to be ready to do it again. And I am.

It was fun!
also, like a week before that I had posted a thread saying I love everyone, and you guys read me like a fucking book.
I played it off because the way my husband reacted to the situation made me think that I had completely misread and over-reacted. (The person we were living with was doing some kind of drug and was being really weird towards me, and just all my shell shock came flooding back and I was ready to book it out of there)
I felt like a goddamn and idiot so I was ashamed to admit I had been scared for my life and felt bad that I had scared everyone. But for a minute I legitimately thought that might be the last thing I get to say to my friends and I didn't want to miss the chance

I'm glad you ended up okay.

Naw but honestly, not the first time. Just hadn't had to be in that type of situation since I moved away from home. Scary, but I was already taking precautions.
Had my phone on me to call the police, had a knife shoved up my sleeve, and my back door open so I could sneak out and sprint through the bushes to the highway.
I know all this sounds scary to the normal person, but when shit is hitting the fan, you don't want to be standing there trying to figure out what to do, you have to be ready to do it. At least, that's what I learned.

Someone good to have against your back instead of facing you with a weapon?
Not either, I suspect.
Well, can you carry a backpack?

I guess if I was moving just casually I would need a couple months to investigate, negotiate, and bide time and all that junk. The move itself, a week or two if I'm working, three days if I take time off for it.
I can move anytime.
All i need is a little gas and one match.
