As a matter of fact, I can describe myself as a person who leads a hectic lifestyle and every day; I have to Immerse Myself In different stuff. But one of the longest and busiest days I have had in a long time was last year when I moved from my old house to a new apartment. This was the most memorable and unforgettable experience of my life. 

Let me explain to you in detail; I vividly remember that date; it was 25th of April Month when I Vacated My old home and moved 20 km to the other side of town from the north to the South side.


I woke up early morning at 4 o’clock because I had to do lots of work on that day, such as packing, shifting, cleaning the new apartment, organizing things in the new place and So on. To be honest, the day lasted from 4 AM to until 2 AM of the next day when I finally went to bed.

Fortunately, my brother and mother gave me a hand in doing all these tasks. Even though I felt exhausted and thought we were short-staffed as there were so many packages and heavy items to shift. I had to pack up more than 20 boxes, and we spent almost half a day loading those boxes in a truck. We took so much time because some of the oversized items did not fit into the lift, like sofa set, Almeria, and bed, So we had to use the stairs, which frustrated us. Of course, I was so busy that day that there was simply no time to cook, so I ordered some food Items Online for everyone. I should not forget to mention that my brother And I ate Our food during our travel time in the Lorry Because we were stuck In a traffic jam for 30 minutes, that was really annoying.

Even though I was quite exhausted after nine hours of packing and shifting, I still needed to gather all my strength to clean my new apartment and to organize essential things like bed, Kitchen tools, computer and so on.

By the time I hit the hay, it was 2 AM. I felt like my Battery was completely drained, but at the same time, I was over the moon that I did well. So this was the busiest day of my life when I didn’t even take a five-minute break in the whole day.
