    A Day In The Life Of An Indecisive Person

    I don't know what to say here.

    You get up to one of your three alarms.

    Tiger Television

    7:15 am - Just in case you wanted to get up earlier to make your own breakfast.

    7:30 am - Just in case you wanted to sleep a little longer.

    8:00 am - Just in case you had a rough night and need way more extra zzzz's.

    You change outfits at least five times.

    A lot of the time you end up wearing the first outfit you originally picked out anyway.

    You spend a further five minutes debating if you want breakfast, whether you even have time for it, or if you should grab something on the way to work.


    By the time you decide to get it on the way to work (like you do every single other morning) you could have prepared and ate your goddamn breakfast.

    You walk up and down the station platform trying to decide which carriage on the train will be the least crowded.

    Before once again settling on the same carriage you get on every single day.

    Once on the train, you spend the rest of the trip debating what stop to get off at.


    The one closest to work or maybe the one a little further way so you can get some exercise in?

    You try to decide if you want to grab a coffee on your way to the office, or wait and buy one later.


    In all honesty, you're can't even decide if you actually like coffee that much.

    When your boss asks you what you're working on for the day, your brain goes into meltdown mode.


    There's a lot of possibilities but you're not sure which task you can make an official commitment to.

    And trying to decide what you want for lunch is pure torture.


    Too. Many. Options.

    When you finally do decide, you start to worry that you've made the wrong decision.

    A potential life (lunchtime) filled with regret.

    Your co-workers starting an afternoon game of 'Would You Rather' sends you into a tailspin.



    Late afternoon, your friend texts you to see if you're still on for the movies, and utters this dreaded phrase: "You can pick what we see!"


    They think they're being generous, but instead they've sent you into full on panic mode. What if the movie you pick is really bad?!

    So you frantically google the movie reviews to try and pick something half decent.

    Touchstone Pictures

    The pressure is on.

    Before caving and begging your friend to choose because you just can't make the decision.


    That familiar taste of failure, mixed in with relief.

    While reminding them to make the dinner reservation too, so you can get out of making that choice.


    It's just easier if all decisions are out of your hands.

    Once you get there, you can't decide if you want a drink with dinner or if you should try and be ~good ~.


    98% of the time you already know the answer, but you just can't help being so damn indecisive.

    Then there's the horror of picking a main.


    Not to mention whether or not you want an entrée.

    Just when you think all your decision making is over for the night, you head to the movies only to be faced with the candy bar.

    Universal Pictures

    Popcorn or choc top? Is having both too greedy? Do I even need anything else? Dinner was pretty filling. Can you even watch a movie without eating candy? Maybe I should just buy a lollipop.

    And once you get home, you set three alarms again in preparation for tomorrow.


    Once you finally decide what time to go to bed that is.
