A little bit of everything

Taking The Next Big Step Into Adulthood


I'm freaking the f**k out!

I'm moving out on my own for the very first time to Helsinki at the end of summer and I just signed my rental lease agreement. I'm scared out of my mind, but I know or I hope anyway... that it will all be fine once I settle in. I have such mixed feelings.. more negatives than positive feelings at this moment, but I know it's something everyone goes through once in their lifetime.  It's time to step up my game and grow up! Seriously. 

Even though I have been studying finance for quite some time now, I sure as hell don't know how to control my own finance! I spend money like there's no tomorrow (mostly on food) I know my parents will always have my back and support me financially when I'm in some deep sh*t, but I can't help but worry about things like ''What if I don't have enough money to pay rent/food/insurance/basic needs''  I never had to worry about these things and the thought of it scares me cause I feel like I'm already stressed out enough as it is. 

I always tell my friends not to dwell on something that has not yet happend, but I never take my own advices do I? Since here I am feeling like I'm about to lose my sanity from thinking about all the things that could go wrong. What if I burn the house down? What if I get food poisoning from my own cooking? or worse kill someone from my own cooking? All these WHAT IFS! 

And I'll probably cry for months cause I miss my mom and dad not being around. I'll be all on my own in the capital. Scary!

I once read somewhere or was it that someone told me that once you start being comfortable with how things are right now, it means it's time for you to get out of that comfort zone. Once you're comfortable, you're going to be comfortable with everything and wouldn't want to achieve anything more, so you're just going to be stuck in the same place with the same job position and same everything... When in reality you can work up and be the president of a company for example. I guess this is something that helps me feel better that I should never aim for comfort and know I'm about to do something out of my comfort zone and future me will thank me for this. 

Please leave down in the comments below of any tips or tricks on living alone and budgeting! I would greatly appreciate it and let me know of your first experiences moving out.
