So, somehow there seems to a common misconception going on that I do, in fact, have my life altogether. People I know from real-time always turn to me and ask for advice on how to get by just so perfectly fine. However, in reality, I am an utter mess about 99% of the time. Though, aren’t we all kind of trying to give our best at adulting, barely scraping to get by?
So let’s all laugh at my pathetic way of dealing with adulthood with these five stories that show that I absolutely do not have my life together
The time I fell on my face in the gym
You know that feeling when you’ve had a really nice leg workout and you feel all wobbly on your feet? Well, happens to me all the time. Usually, I can balance it out and play it cool. However, one time I didn’t manage and landed face-down on the gym floor, my phone swooshing through the hall and everyone staring at me. Absolutely mortifying!
The time I flew to Berlin without my wallet
So when I went on my very first solo trip I was so anxious and nervous that I assumed the worst would happen. I continuously obsessed about the things I could possibly forget only to end up boarding the plane without any cash on hand, no credit card in my purse and absolutely nothing to get me through the day. Luckily, I didn’t need a cent on the airport as it was only short-haul and was provided with some emergency cash on the airport in Germany, otherwise, that would have been a big problem. Lesson learned!
That time I was so broke I ate pasta with butter and toast for two consecutive weeks
Haha – fun times that was. So when I moved out at the beginning of the year I was barely getting by. And by barely getting by I really mean, I was so broke that I couldn’t afford to buy food for two weeks and ended up living off toast and butter, or pasta with butter. Not really nutritious and fun but I survived. Shortly after, when my paycheck arrived, I immediately ordered pizza and have never felt more satisfied with my food choice before.
The time I ordered a hideously expensive dress online, spilt coffee all over it and had to keep it
Happened to me once – will never happen again. I once saw this beautiful dress on ASOS and ordered it. I knew it was way too expensive and I’d never keep it only to wear it to one or two parties. However, when I tried it on and paraded the flat, I spilt spilt coffee all over the dress and had to pay for it. F. U. N.!
And let’s not forget every time someone wants to hug me and I stand there, absolutely mortified by what to do next
I’m not a touchy-feely person and value my personal space much more than others do. Hugging doesn’t come naturally to me and you’ll often find me fishing for my phone or doing something else, to avoid people hugging me when they say hello or goodbye. Sometimes these situations aren’t so easy to avoid, though, and I end up absolutely horribly acting my way through the process, probably looking more horrified than a kid having to give up ice-cream. Idk but I just can’t deal with it!
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Nike Shoes | Calzedonia Tights | Orsay Skirt (similar here) | H&M Jumper | Zara Leather Jacket (similar here) | Rimowa Scarf*
Now, let’s please talk about the things that are going on in your life so I can feel better about myself.
