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
