Leaving your Home Town for Education? 6 Tips to Make the Move Pleasant

 

Education is one of the most important pursuits in life. It is on this that the future of a person rests. Hence, everyone puts in most efforts to get the best possible education. This calls for investment of money, and may be, even a move to a new city. This is especially common for students who are giving competitive exams and seek the best institutes across the country to be able to get exceptional results and thereby, wonderful placements. A lot of students brace themselves for such moves but a lot many find it tough to adjust in the new environment.

EasyRentals2U feels for all such students and offers tips that will ease some of their worries -

  1. Think through boarding arrangements; Hostel, PG or Rented Accommodation -

    What level of freedom are you looking for; if you are happy with strict timings then nothing beats the proximity of a hostel. If you like a bit more flexibility, a PG can be a good with the choice of having lesser people per room. If you cherish your privacy above all else, a rented accommodation can be the perfect choice. You can even share it with a friend to reduce expenses. These choices are also governed by your budget as a rented accommodation can be quite expensive, especially in big cities. By making this most important choice right, you will be at peace for the duration of your course.

  2. First things first; what does the package include and exclude-

    Once you have made up your mind regarding your boarding arrangements, you need to be clear about what is and isn’t included in the fee. From water and electricity bills to food, power backup, guests and eviction notice deadlines, everything needs to be discussed and clarified to avoid any surprises at a later date. Who wants the embarrassment of getting a few friends to your room and being shown the door as they are not allowed in. Be sure to read the fine print or face big problems later.

  3. Lifestyle Choices- When education is the motive, there aren’t many things you need other than your books, a table and chair, and a bed to get you through. But having been raised in different environments, each student is different and everyone’s definition of ‘needs’ and ‘wants’ is different. While one may ‘want’ a special type of chair, for another it may be a ‘need’ they just can’t do without. Where possible, you can get a few basics like the linen and accents from home, but it makes no sense to lug furniture across cities. Especially when EasyRentals2U offers all kinds of high quality furniture you can rent for the time duration you want and change it when you want. Don’t let the lack of a chair, a sofa, a cabinet, or a small budget, come between you and comfort.
  4. Figure out a Monthly Budget & Stick to it -

    You have had to give up the comfort of home to pursue education, your parents have funded your dream and now you find yourself cash-strapped ever so often. Constantly asking parents for more money doesn’t feel right even when they don’t mind. To break this cycle, draw up a plan for your expenses. In consultation with your parents, write down the fixed expenses, add the miscellaneous ones and the figure out an allowance amount that you can spend as you wish. If you are an adult, you might want to draw this plan for your own reference. Now, stick to it. Not only is it less stressful to know how much to spend where but it also keeps you from situations where you have to go a few days on an empty pocket.

  5. Home Specials -

    Carry with you Mathris, Theplas, Khakras, Panjiri and more for when hunger pangs and home sickness get too overwhelming. A bit of home around you will always be a comforting presence. Be it in the form of a lovingly knitted muffler that you drape to keep the cold at bay, a picture of your family or a video that you play when you miss the bitter-sweet fights with your siblings, a memory is a good way to feel connected. Keeping in touch is also important and it keeps you updated about whatever is happening back home.

  6. Making new friends-

    From the very first day, staying sane will depend a lot on who you have around. So pick your friends wisely and don’t be afraid to socialise. Even if you are neck deep in preparation for a competitive exam, you will need a break and someone to chat up. Having someone to call a friend can go a long way in helping you settle down in the new place. Everyone else is also in the same boat as you and equally eager to be nice and make friends, so it shouldn’t be so difficult.

    EasyRentals2U wishes you a fruitful academic journey that’s comfortable and relaxed as well!

5 Tips to Keep that Homely Feeling Around when Works Keeps you on the Move

 

Being an entrepreneur or a career driven person may mean that you have to relocate; that too not once but many times over. While that may be a great move career-wise, the home sickness and the feeling of disconnect can get overwhelming at times. You may not always be in a position to defer a move but there are things that will keep you from feeling like a nomad with no roots. EasyRentals2U empathises with you and suggests 5 tips that will keep you in touch with home base even when you are far off.

  • Carry along a bit of home: Everyone has a few things they relate with home. It could be a comforter you have had since adolescence, a pair of binoculars your dad bought you as a gift for your good result, a dish that always manages to put you in a good mood or something else just like that. While you cannot carry your home with you, a few knick knacks like quilts, binoculars and other souvenirs can easily be carried and put in a place where they remind you and spread a pleasant vibe in your new place. If it is a food stuff you can carry (many dishes now come in instant heat and eat packs, which many not be the real deal but can come close when you are really craving their comfort), great; otherwise you can master a simple dish before leaving and cook it for special occasions. It may help you win new friends as well.
  • Seek and create a network of friends:Staying to yourself will definitely not help the situation and you will, in fact, feel lonelier. One of the best ways to feel at home in a new place is to live the way you would at home. And one of the first things back home is friends (apart from family). So, go out, meet new people, take off the blinkers and see the world from a fresh perspective. You would be surprised how different a place can feel once you have friends around.
  • Create a warm, inviting place to call home: If you don’t add personal touches to your pad, apartment, loft or studio, it will continue to feel alien to you. Your take may be that when you are not sure how long you are going to be there, why make the effort. The thing to consider here is that while spending a fortune on furniture and other objects you may not be able to lug to your next posting is indeed inadvisable, spending time looking for furniture that appeals to you and renting it certainly creates a vibe that you will enjoy coming back to. If it is a sofa in front of the TV or a dresser that makes you happy, don’t let a big price tag deter you and rent them out for the duration that you are going to be staying there. This is also a great way to keep the look of your place current and happening.
  • Stay in touch: After a while, calling up old friends may slip down the list of priorities or may start to feel like a chore. But the thing is that if you let friendships go, or take them for granted, you may not feel like you belong when you return home. At least once a day, call up someone in the family (a Skype or video call is even better) and once a week try to connect with old friends. Encourage them to visit you, and visit them when you are in town.
  • Keep your passion and hobbies alive: If you enjoyed gardening or reading or listening to music or going out for a match back home, don’t stop doing so in the new place. If you don’t have a garden, volunteer to help in the garden of your apartment complex. Join a library. Stream new music by subscribing to any of the good music apps such as Apple Music. Hang out at a match with new friends. This not just kee your hobbies alive, but also helps you meet new people and know more about a new place.
  • A move is not always a bad idea, and just changing your attitude and approach can make a world of a difference.
