Moving out of your house is equal parts exciting and daunting. You are apprehensive of going out on your own, but you’re still pumped up to experience this new, independent life. If you have taken the plunge, we’re sure that you will find these situations extremely relatable. Read on and you’ll definitely think, “That’s SO me!”
1. You are finally taking decisions on your own
No more depending on your parents. You start trusting your own decisions - big or small - and start living your life on your terms.
2. You feel homesick
Every weekend, you video chat with your folks back home. Your mom gives you lessons on how to cook, while dad insists that you invest your savings (you fail to mention that there aren’t any). In the middle of “Kya khaya?” and “Why haven’t you cut your nails?” you realise how much you miss them.
3. You are lost most of the time!
Not just lost in thoughts, but also lost because you don’t know where to go and what to do. You’re trying to figure out the public transportation system, and you’re always asking for directions.
4. Your Uber game becomes stronger
You can’t afford to show up late at work anymore (because of all the hassles with the public transport), so Uber becomes your go-to app. Plus, every evening you get the same text from home, “Beta, when will you reach home?” so you share your journey with your parents for their peace of mind.
5. You try to socialise a lot because, survival!
You are new and you want to know more people, so you end up socialising more than you normally would.
6. You are broke… End of every month!
Savings? What savings? Grocery, shopping, parties, eating out... How can one possibly save when they live alone?
7. Noods noods noods!
You give up on making complicated dishes because you’re lazy! So, the only comfort food you have all day, all night is cup noodles!
8. You spend your free time amping up your new crib
All the free time you have goes into making sure your new house is pretty and aesthetic. Basically, the Monica Geller in you is always on the job.
9. You take time to explore the new city
Moving out can sometimes be a lot of fun. You are exploring the city and your social media looks oh-so-pretty! Plus, you know you can book an Uber and share your ride status with your loved one anytime. So, there’s nothing holding you back!
