Jill and Kate Chat about Moving and Shopping - Part 1

Kate: Hi, Jill, how are you?

Jill: I'm fine, thanks, Kate, how are you?

Kate: I'm doing well. I'm really happy to see some of the snow melting around here.

Jill: I agree. It means it's warming up a little bit, and that is very nice. I'm very happy that the snow is melting, because I will be moving soon, and it will be a lot easier to move without having to deal with the slippery roads, and ice, and all that nice stuff.

Kate: So where-you're moving from your mom's house to your own apartment? That's going to be a huge change. But moving itself is not very much fun, but setting up a new place can be quite interesting.

Jill: Yeah, I'm a little bit nervous, to say the least. I'll be moving from home, where meals were cooked for me, and I didn't really have a lot of responsibilities, to having to do everything on my own, and I'll be paying for everything on my own. It's quite busy trying to organize everything and trying to buy all the things that I need; the furniture, and-that will be expensive, not just busy-and kind of going through all the stuff I have accumulated over the years, and figuring out what I have and what I need. It's a little bit stressful but it's very exciting at the same time, and I'm looking very forward to it.

Kate: Well, you're going to need some boxes, I can tell you that much. You're going to need some packing paper. Lots of newspapers, start setting those aside. I've moved-the last time I moved, I moved from a townhouse that I had been in for five years, to a house, but I had a gap of a month where I was homeless, so every single thing I owned had to be packed up and either put into storage with a moving company, or put into storage in my parents' basement. Actually, my parents were out of town when I figured out I was moving, so I moved a lot of stuff into their house before they even came back.

Jill: Perfect.

Kate: They knew, but they weren't quite sure what they were going to get into when they came home. So that was a long move, that was almost a double move. I moved out and into storage, and then out of storage and into the house. So I don't envy you, in some ways, but it is very exciting, and you find all kinds of wonderful things.

Jill: And I'm lucky, because you know, I haven't acquired everything that I need, so I probably only have about half as much to move as most people would have-or even less so, because I'm one person, so you know, I don't have-I don't even have big dressers to move, I don't have a kitchen table yet. I have one couch and one bed and a TV and some clothes, and that's basically it, so it shouldn't be too bad. I find the part I hate about moving the most, because I actually have moved quite a few times in the last couple of years-three or four times, actually-is the unpacking. That's what I find the most difficult, is setting aside the time now that you've moved into this new place, and you still work every day, and coming home at the end of the day and trying to get motivated to unwrap things and put things away. Maybe you have to clean some of the things before you put them away, or maybe you do that before you pack them up, I don't know. So I find that that's the hardest part, and I'm worried that there might be some things that sit unpacked for quite a while.

Kate: You mean like my boxes that have been sitting for three years?

Jill: Exactly!

Kate: I have some things that went into, you know, the guest bedroom, and I haven't had any guests yet, so this makes it all too easy to just leave them. But what about the basics of life? If you don't have a kitchen table, I see perhaps IKEA in your future?

Jill: Yes.

Kate: Or The Brick? That's also another good place for sturdy but cheap. Yes.

And cutlery, and cups, and plates. Usually, you'll move out with a thousand mugs, but no plates.

Jill: That's true, and I've also found that Wal-Mart is actually a really good place for dishes, like just casual dish settings/servings. There's $30 sets for, you know, eight plates and bowls and whatever, and IKEA's great for that too, and glasses and cups. Also, for the bigger stuff, the more expensive furniture, I'm thinking of going to not only IKEA and The Brick, but also to United Furniture Warehouse out in Coquitlam. I know some friends who have bought stuff from there, and it's brand new, and it's nice, and it's a fraction of the price of, you know, most of the home furnishing stores. I don't need anything fancy for my, you know, my first apartment, so as long as it's nice, decent, doesn't have to be the best quality ever. I don't expect it to last me for twenty years. I don't want it to last me for twenty years. I'm sure my tastes will change, so for me I'd rather buy things that aren't extremely expensive, so that in a couple years or a few years down the road, if I want to change, if my style changes or my taste changes, then I won't feel so bad about buying new stuff, because I didn't spend so much on the old stuff.


Jill and Kate Chat about Moving and Shopping - Part 1 Джилл і Кейт балакають про переїзд і покупки - Частина 1

Kate: Hi, Jill, how are you? 凱特:嗨,吉爾,你好嗎?

Jill: I’m fine, thanks, Kate, how are you?

Kate: I’m doing well. 凱特:我做得很好。 I’m really happy to see some of the snow melting around here. Я дуже радий бачити, як тут трохи тане сніг. 我很高興看到這裡融化了一些雪。

Jill: I agree. Джилл: Я згодна. It means it’s warming up a little bit, and that is very nice. Це означає, що він трохи розігрівається, і це дуже приємно. I’m very happy that the snow is melting, because I will be moving soon, and it will be a lot easier to move without having to deal with the slippery roads, and ice, and all that nice stuff. Я дуже радий, що сніг тане, тому що я скоро поїду, і мені буде набагато легше пересуватися, не стикаючись зі слизькими дорогами, льодом і всіма такими приємними речами.

Kate: So where-you’re moving from your mom’s house to your own apartment? Кейт: То куди ти переїжджаєш із маминого будинку у власну квартиру? That’s going to be a huge change. Це буде величезна зміна. But moving itself is not very much fun, but setting up a new place can be quite interesting. Mas a mudança em si não é muito divertida, mas a criação de um novo local pode ser bastante interessante. Але переїзд сам по собі не дуже веселий, а ось облаштування нового місця може бути досить цікавим.

Jill: Yeah, I’m a little bit nervous, to say the least. Jill: Sim, estou um pouco nervosa, para dizer o mínimo. Джилл: Так, я, м’яко кажучи, трохи нервую. I’ll be moving from home, where meals were cooked for me, and I didn’t really have a lot of responsibilities, to having to do everything on my own, and I’ll be paying for everything on my own. Vou me mudar de casa, onde as refeições eram preparadas para mim, e eu realmente não tinha muitas responsabilidades, para ter que fazer tudo sozinha, e vou pagar tudo sozinha. Я буду переїжджати з дому, де мені готували їжу, і в мене не було справді багато обов’язків, до того, що я буду все робити сама, і я буду за все платити сама. It’s quite busy trying to organize everything and trying to buy all the things that I need; the furniture, and-that will be expensive, not just busy-and kind of going through all the stuff I have accumulated over the years, and figuring out what I have and what I need. Я досить зайнятий, намагаючись усе організувати та намагаючись купити всі речі, які мені потрібні; меблі, і – це буде дорого, не просто зайнято – і ніби переглядати всі речі, які я накопичив за ці роки, і з’ясувати, що я маю і що мені потрібно. It’s a little bit stressful but it’s very exciting at the same time, and I’m looking very forward to it. Це трохи напружено, але в той же час дуже хвилююче, і я дуже цього чекаю.

Kate: Well, you’re going to need some boxes, I can tell you that much. Кейт: Тобі знадобляться коробки, я можу тобі сказати стільки. You’re going to need some packing paper. Вам знадобиться пакувальний папір. Lots of newspapers, start setting those aside. Багато газет, почніть відкладати їх. I’ve moved-the last time I moved, I moved from a townhouse that I had been in for five years, to a house, but I had a gap of a month where I was homeless, so every single thing I owned had to be packed up and either put into storage with a moving company, or put into storage in my parents' basement. Я переїхав. Останнього разу, коли я переїхав, я переїхав із таунхаусу, в якому жив п’ять років, до будинку, але через місяць я був бездомним, тому всі речі, які я мав бути упакованим і або поміщеним на зберігання в транспортну компанію, або поміщеним на зберігання в підвалі моїх батьків. Actually, my parents were out of town when I figured out I was moving, so I moved a lot of stuff into their house before they even came back. Насправді моїх батьків не було в місті, коли я зрозумів, що переїжджаю, тому я перевіз багато речей до їхнього будинку ще до того, як вони повернулися.

Jill: Perfect.

Kate: They knew, but they weren’t quite sure what they were going to get into when they came home. Кейт: Вони знали, але вони не були зовсім впевнені, у що збираються вплутатися, коли повернулися додому. So that was a long move, that was almost a double move. Тож це був довгий хід, майже подвійний хід. I moved out and into storage, and then out of storage and into the house. Я переїхав у сховище, а потім зі складу й у будинок. So I don’t envy you, in some ways, but it is very exciting, and you find all kinds of wonderful things. Тож я не заздрю вам, у чомусь, але це дуже захоплююче, і ви знаходите всілякі чудові речі.

Jill: And I’m lucky, because you know, I haven’t acquired everything that I need, so I probably only have about half as much to move as most people would have-or even less so, because I’m one person, so you know, I don’t have-I don’t even have big dressers to move, I don’t have a kitchen table yet. Джилл: І мені пощастило, тому що, знаєте, я не придбала все, що мені потрібно, тож у мене, мабуть, є вдвічі менше, ніж у більшості людей, або навіть менше, тому що я одна людина , так що ви знаєте, я не маю-у мене навіть немає великих комодів, щоб перенести, у мене ще немає кухонного столу. I have one couch and one bed and a TV and some clothes, and that’s basically it, so it shouldn’t be too bad. У мене є один диван, одне ліжко, телевізор і трохи одягу, і це, в основному, все, тому це не повинно бути надто погано. I find the part I hate about moving the most, because I actually have moved quite a few times in the last couple of years-three or four times, actually-is the unpacking. Я вважаю, що найбільше я ненавиджу переїзд, тому що я справді переїжджав досить багато разів за останні пару років — три чи чотири рази, насправді — це розпакування. That’s what I find the most difficult, is setting aside the time now that you’ve moved into this new place, and you still work every day, and coming home at the end of the day and trying to get motivated to unwrap things and put things away. Це те, що мені здається найважчим, це виділити час, коли ви переїхали в це нове місце, і ви все ще працюєте кожен день, і повертатися додому в кінці дня і намагатися отримати мотивацію, щоб розгорнути речі і покласти речі геть. Maybe you have to clean some of the things before you put them away, or maybe you do that before you pack them up, I don’t know. Можливо, вам потрібно почистити деякі речі, перш ніж прибрати їх, або, можливо, ви робите це перед тим, як їх спакувати, я не знаю. So I find that that’s the hardest part, and I’m worried that there might be some things that sit unpacked for quite a while. Тому я вважаю, що це найважча частина, і я хвилююся, що деякі речі можуть довго стояти розпакованими.

Kate: You mean like my boxes that have been sitting for three years? Кейт: Ви маєте на увазі мої ящики, які простояли три роки?

Jill: Exactly!

Kate: I have some things that went into, you know, the guest bedroom, and I haven’t had any guests yet, so this makes it all too easy to just leave them. Кейт: У мене є деякі речі, які пішли, знаєте, у гостьову спальню, і в мене ще не було гостей, тому їх дуже легко просто залишити. But what about the basics of life? Але як щодо основ життя? If you don’t have a kitchen table, I see perhaps IKEA in your future? Якщо у вас немає кухонного столу, я бачу, можливо, IKEA у вашому майбутньому?

Jill: Yes.

Kate: Or The Brick? Кейт: Або Цегла? That’s also another good place for sturdy but cheap. Це також ще одне хороше місце для надійних, але дешевих. Yes.

And cutlery, and cups, and plates. І столові прилади, і чашки, і тарілки. Usually, you’ll move out with a thousand mugs, but no plates. Зазвичай ви переїжджаєте з тисячею кухлів, але без тарілок.

Jill: That’s true, and I’ve also found that Wal-Mart is actually a really good place for dishes, like just casual dish settings/servings. Джилл: Це правда, і я також зрозуміла, що Wal-Mart насправді є гарним місцем для страв, наприклад, просто звичайні страви/сервірування. There’s $30 sets for, you know, eight plates and bowls and whatever, and IKEA’s great for that too, and glasses and cups. Є набори за 30 доларів, знаєте, вісім тарілок, мисок і будь-що, і IKEA чудово підходить для цього, а також склянки та чашки. Also, for the bigger stuff, the more expensive furniture, I’m thinking of going to not only IKEA and The Brick, but also to United Furniture Warehouse out in Coquitlam. Крім того, для більших речей, дорожчих меблів, я думаю піти не лише в IKEA та The Brick, а й до United Furniture Warehouse у Кокітламі. I know some friends who have bought stuff from there, and it’s brand new, and it’s nice, and it’s a fraction of the price of, you know, most of the home furnishing stores. Я знаю кількох друзів, які купували там речі, і це абсолютно нове, і це гарно, і це невелика частка ціни, знаєте, у більшості магазинів домашніх меблів. I don’t need anything fancy for my, you know, my first apartment, so as long as it’s nice, decent, doesn’t have to be the best quality ever. Мені не потрібно нічого шикарного для моєї, знаєте, моєї першої квартири, тому якщо вона гарна, пристойна, не обов’язково має бути найкращої якості. I don’t expect it to last me for twenty years. Я не сподіваюся, що це прослужить мені двадцять років. I don’t want it to last me for twenty years. Я не хочу, щоб він прослужив мені двадцять років. I’m sure my tastes will change, so for me I’d rather buy things that aren’t extremely expensive, so that in a couple years or a few years down the road, if I want to change, if my style changes or my taste changes, then I won’t feel so bad about buying new stuff, because I didn’t spend so much on the old stuff. Я впевнений, що мої смаки зміняться, тому для мене я б краще купувати речі, які не є надзвичайно дорогими, щоб через пару років чи кілька років, якщо я захочу змінитися, якщо зміниться мій стиль чи мій смак зміниться, тоді я не почуватимусь так погано, купуючи нові речі, тому що я не витрачав так багато на старі речі.
