If a move is in the future, make sure you check out Verizon’s plans to help the move go more smoothly. Verizon makes it easier to move from one location to another, and if you binge like me, you’ll need seamless service.
In May and June, it’s a tradition to haunt the University of Pennsylvania’s campus in May and June. Students are leaving for the summer and most dump electronics, furniture, and other items that are too cumbersome to carry back home. If you aren’t in a position to dump your furniture and purchase new, check out these tips from Verizon to make your move easier.
There’s an argument against having service set up as you move into your new place. The idea is that access to wifi or cable would be a distraction and cause delays. Having yelled at The Boy multiple times to “look at ME and not that dang phone!” I can see the desire to eschew all things electronic until a move is completed. If you are like me, you’re in the middle of binging a TV show (The Killing) and moving sans background TV is not optimal.
With Verizon, you can start streaming in the old house on your tablet. Download episodes for on the go viewing during the drive to the new abode. And make a game of the tedious box opening by timing yourself to the end of an episode. From experience, I can unload, fold, and put away a week’s worth of laundry during an episode of Law & Order.
What shows should you have queued for moving day?
Judge Judy, of course. There’s some wisdom in the plucky septuagenarian. At least once a day, current roommates, former roommates, or roommates to be battle over bills, possessions, or broken leases. Judge Judy is NOT a substitute for a lawyer’s advice, the common sense advice she spits out between cases can help keep some trouble at bay.
My 600-lb Life. A show that follows morbidly obese people seeking weight loss surgery seems an odd choice to motivate a mover. Look pass the sometimes petulant behavior the show’s participants exhibit in the beginning of the show, and watch their pride as they accomplish their individual weight loss goals and personal triumphs. How does this help with moving? If a person can shed over 200 pounds, you can rearrange your china hutch.
The Voice. What’s not to like about a show that gets you hyped for the contestants AND features songs you know the words to?
ESPN. The Mister leaves this on ALL of the time, and I’ve gotten used to starting dinner with Bomani Jones in the back. Bonus: download a podcast of his show for times when screen time isn’t possible.
These are just a few of the shows I like to stream. What’s on your moving playlist?
