5 Stories that show that I absolutely do not have my life together

5 Stories that show that I absolutely do not have my life together

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!

    S0 glad someone is the same with hugging! I swear I am so awkward when things come down to hugs. When people try to hug me goodbye I think I actually visibly recoil…

    I‘m not a hugging person as well, so I feel you on such a level (except it‘s okay to hug people hello and goodbye I know). Else this post is so relateable. Going shopping on my own for example is so awkward because I either tend to ask the shop assistents stupid questions when they are asking if I‘m doing okay or I‘m there for hours because I can be super indecisive as well. Don‘t let me start on phoning people.

    Adulting is fun. Or such. :‘D Posts like these make me feel a little more normal tbh.

    If you wanna feel better, just think about that time I went shopping with ny BF and funny me jumped out from behind a shelf to jump scare him – only to realize that it was a random stranger whom I‘d almost given a heart attack.

    so many of my friends always make me feel like my life is so perfect and put together but in reality, it’s not. being so broke that all I had what pasta and ketchup or breaking my MacBook and my washing machine on the same day really shows that sometimes I have no idea what I’m doing.


    • 14th November 2017 / 8:35 pm

      oh my got the washing machine + macbook incident sounds horrifying to me. hope everything worked out just fine x

    You look so beautiful in these photos, this shoot is really lovely! I am the same with hugs, I’ve totally been way too poor to afford food and life in general while living on my own, and I lose my wallet always. Flying somewhere without it though- that’s terrifying I’m so glad it turned out okay haha. None of us have our lives together at this point I don’t think, but that’s the beauty of it :)


    • 14th November 2017 / 8:34 pm

      Thank you so so much! Haha it was a really terrifying experience to be quiet honest :D
      Wonderful words at the end of your comment, too. I absolutely agree!

    Der Post ist so toll! Ich kann mich erinnern, wie ich NACH dem Laufen am Laufband (nicht mal währenddessen) auf die Nase geflogen bin, weil meine Beine so wackelig waren. Vielleicht kennst du das Gefühl, wenn du vom Laufband runter gehst? Es fühlt sich irgendwie so an als “müsstest” du weiterlaufen bzw als ob sich der Boden bewegen würde – ganz komisch haha
    Was ist das bitte für ein Horrorszenario am Flughafen? Ich wäre untergegangen hahah

      Hahahaha oh mein Gott. Ich bin auch mal auf dem laufenden Laufband hingefallen und voll in die Wand geknallt, war auch gut :D

    OH girl you are not alone. I don’t think I’ll ever really get my life together! Haha.
