Sometimes we need a little musical motivation to get us through the hard times. Packing can be a drag on your mental state, but there is a scientifically-verified way to deal with those emotions in a healthy way—listen to some tunes directly applicable to your situation! Sarcasm aside, you may be better off throwing on Guardians of the Galaxy’s “Awesome Mix” to give your mood a little boost (or, if you’re feeling epic, the often non-lyrical “Lord of the Rings” Soundtrack). But if you are the type of person that enjoys a musical backing to your activities in a way
Let me start off my saying it’s a great day in South Carolina. I love the greenery, the whole-hearted acceptance of delicious fried foods and the historical cities that make the Palmetto state memorable. There is a tradeoff, though. To have all this beauty and quaint disregard for proper nutrition, we must have our humidity and scorching summers; it’s how the universe stays in balance.
Chances are you are not willing/not planning to move to the desolate environment that is Antarctica (biggest desert on the planet, fun fact) and Mobile Attic won’t be able to deliver that far, unfortunately. We are
Moving can be a stressful time for your furry friend. The changing environment is slightly traumatic, even for a human, but your dogs have no context for what is going on. The things that made up the world around them are slowly disappearing and, before anyone knows it, they are waking up to the smell of some not so familiar carpeting with a home layout they probably would not have chosen for their dream home (they prefer something smaller and with more treats per square footage). Your dog’s stylistic tastes aside, there are a few things that may slip your
Memorial Day, while sobering, has the unique power to bring us together through tragedy and remembrance. It is a chance for us to show our appreciation to those who change our communities through valor and honor displayed on the world stage. What better way to do this than indulging in all things American?
In this hectic time of heat, rain, and moving, Mobile Attic wants to remind you to kick of your shoes occasionally: Memorial Day is the perfect time for that baseball game, barbecue, or down-to-earth gathering. The moments when you relax with friends and family are just as important
Don’t let the rainy days fool you; even now, outdoor activity season steadily approaches. The temperature has spontaneously increased, so much so that I doubt anyone remembers winter as a thing. When the planet is done taking its periodic dip into some giant, cosmic ocean, there will be a moment where we have a limited window for comfortable entertainment before the summer hits and everyone is baked golden by the harsh, South Carolina solar radiation.
In the spirit of late spring, I’ve compiled a short list of outdoor ideas, so you can be the usher of joy and merriment. One that
I’m not sure I want to meet the person who thinks packing is the fun or exciting part of a relocation adventure. If life came with a montage button, this would be one of the moments you press the living snot out of the thing. Unfortunately, the science here is in its early stages. Fortunately, though, Mobile Attic is here to make the process much smoother. Packing still stinks, but at least we can pull out the pain a bit. Our lucky decedents will have limitless robot helpers that can assist with boxing and unboxing. For those of us living
Fixed storage units are strange rooms away from home: protected by the law and a large metal fence, allowing you to store as many Beanie Babies as your heart can keep tabs on, along with assorted gym equipment (the kind that looks easier to use on television). Because of the reclusiveness, unopened storage units have an air of mystery and potentiality. This feeling is so common, A&E made a terrible show about it. At the same time, the storage habits of the rich and famous are shrouded in this additional environment of mystery. Years later when someone cracks the units
April showers and all that jazz. No matter the reason, you find yourself in a situation where you must move, but several hundred gallons of that pesky rain make the job a bit more difficult. Moving is a big headache; moving during the rainy season qualifies as a hardcore water sport (on par with log rolling, except with back pain from lifting boxes for a week). You may be a veteran mover who welcomes the challenge, but for the other 99.99999%, Mobile Attic wants to give you a friendly, hydrophobic hand.
In seriousness, rainy moving can be a dangerous game. With
With Earth day on the horizon, you may be looking for ways to give back to the great, blue planet. That is certainly admirable, but Earth day should be about inspiring permanent changes in our lifestyles that will have a ripple effect in society. What does that mean for you? Absolutely anything between organizing a community-wide 5k to cutting back the number of plastic bottles you use daily. Through your actions (if done passionately), you will inspire others to take up that same burden of love.
All that sounds great and stuff, but where to get started? Companies are blasting you
Earth day may be a week off, but now is the perfect time to show Mother Nature a little love. How, you ask? By proudly showing everyone just how green your thumb is (and if it’s actually green, maybe you should see a doctor). You may be a little wary about planting more foliage around, and that’s understandable. They control our oxygen supply and, if some sort of extraterrestrial being were to come to earth, they would think the trees run the show. We should plant those things anyway because running a planet is a lot of pressure and I
