Growing Up

Hola everyone.

So today I want to talk about something I am now confrontef with every single day. And I will for the next two months and later on for the rest of my life. Today I want to talk about how I feel about having to grow up and being an actual grown up.

Now that I’m living alone in Berlin, with no actual grown up members of my family that even live in the same country, I am completely depended on myself. And holy moly, I can tell you, I never imagined that it could be this tough. As far as I remember, until now, I always had my parents around who would do all the grown up stuff for me. And of course that made life a lot easier. And now that I am in Berlin on my own, I have to do all of this stuff myself, which brings me to the point that I noticed how much the current situation taught me about life as a grown up:


  • Go for a walk once in a while, even if you’re alone
  • Telecom companies are straight from hell
  • Google is your best friend
  • Cooking for yourself all the time takes longer than you think
  • While being alone, you really get to know a lot about yourself
  • Doing things on your own like going to the cinema isn’t weird, but actually is normal
  • Life without your own washing machine makes everything a lot more complicated
  • The same without a dishwasher and a microwave
  • Late night shops are the best thing ever
  • YouTube, a good movie or tv show can save the day,
  • If you don’t like your current situation, change something about it
  • You’re never too old to need your parents
  • You can do whatever you want, just be happy
  • Animals and plants make everything so much better
  • WhatsApp is a gift from heaven
  • I still sometimes feel like I’m 12 and that’s okay (actually, it’s awesome)
  • Book stores are the perfect place to take a break from the world
  • Love life


So yeah, this is how I feel about living the life of a grown up here in Berlin. And maybe you feel the same. Anyway, I am still pretty happy that I can get back to being a child without this huge pack of responsibilities when I get back home in February. I don’t really feel ready for being and doing this here for the rest of my life, I still need some off-let’s be a child -time.

I am pretty sure that most of you know pretty well what I am talking about, so whenever you want to talk, I am here. And until then, I hope you enjoyed this post, and as always, thanks for reading. x
