Making a mistake isn’t something that we all want to
happen.. but they happen anyway. When you make a mistake there are two options;
you can let it bother you for the rest of the day or you can shake it off your
shoulders and forget all about it. From slipping in front of the class to
flubbing up your lines on the announcements, here are 20 mistakes that are okay
It’s OK to…
Forget about your eyebrow waxing appointment
Your brows don’t have to
be absolute perfection every day. Skipping your waxing sesh will give your
brows and skin a much-needed break.
Accidentally wear mismatched
Did ya doze off while
painting your nails and never got around to fixing them? That’s totally okay!
Although you may feel like everyone is noticing, not many people pay close
attention to nails.
Eat fast food… for the third
time this week.
If your schedule has
been crazy busy and the only time you have to eat is in between SGA meetings
and soccer practice, it’s totally okay to nom on fast food. Eating it won’t
kill you and you can always eat some leafy greens later.
Tell your crush’s BFF who you like
Maybe you did it on
purpose and maybe it accidentally slipped out. Either way, this will give your
guy some notice that you like him, which could end up in a date coming your
So what if you always
wear your fave v-neck with those super cute shorts? As long as you feel
comfortable and confident, that’s all that matters.
Wave to the wrong person
You can turn this
usually awkward situation into a chance to meet new people and maybe make a
friend or two! If the person you waved to didn’t notice then no problem! If
they did then compliment them on something you like! Instant friends!
Totally blank on the test
Nothing’s worse than
walking into History and seeing a test on your desk that you totally forgot to
study for. Although this is a sticky situation, use it as a chance to learn
from your mistakes. Invest in a daily planner where you can write down all your
assignments to ensure you’re ready for the next test.
Flub your lines
Although messing up in front of the whole
school is mega embarrassing, remember that you’re only human and it’s okay to
mess up. Give yourself a mini pep talk and know that you’re going to wow them
with the rest of your stellar performance.
Mess up while doing your
Trust us, it takes a lot
of time and practice to make your eyeliner picture perfect. So your eyeliner
may not be perfectly even on both sides, so what? You get points from us for
Wear 'last years' style
You finally saved up
enough money to buy those shoes everyone at school was going gaga over last
year, but now everyone is going crazy on a new trend. Keep the shoes and wear
them with pride. There’s a good chance that they will be back in style soon
enough and you will be ready to become the newest trendsetter.
Forget to touch up your roots
Yikes! The big dance is
tomorrow and you never went to the salon to fix your hair dye! Don’t sweat
about it. There are tons of hair styles you can do to cover up your roots if
you want to. On’t focus on your hair when you can focus on how much fun you’re
going to have!
Have the same dress as your
BFF at the dance
You and your BFF have
the same style which is awesome, but it can get a little embarrassing when you both
show up to the dance with the same dress. Make this situation fun and take tons
of pics and laugh about how similar you two really are. Talk about twinning!
Walk into the wrong classroom
Rushing through the
hallway to get to class before the bell rings is super stressful so it’s okay
if you get mixed up and run to English instead of Math. Just apologize and
laugh it off. Promise us when we say it happens all the time.
Slip and fall at school
Yikes! This is something
you don’t wish on your biggest enemy, but unfortunately it happens all the
time. Get up quickly and laugh it off. It won’t seem so traumatizing if you’re
laughing at yourself with others and not getting upset.
Walk up to the wrong car
It’s easy to get
confused when there are two cars that look just like your family’s. Just laugh
it off and let person in the car know that you got mistaken and move on, it’s
Have a tampon fall out of
This is as sitch that
can leave you blushing. Just pick it up and don’t draw attention to it. The
more embarrassed you look the worse it gets. Be confident in yourself and know
that it happens all the time.
Accidentally forget a date
Did you check your phone
while shopping and see 8 missed calls from Chris asking where you were? Don’t
freak out, just be honest with him and let him know it slipped your mind. Make
it up to him by planning something else super fun. Honest is the best policy
when it comes to this mistake.
Oversleeping can cause
you to be late to something or miss it entirely, but this is your bodies way of
telling you to slow down and take a break.
Take your bro's lunch instead
of your own
Did you grab your
brothers PB&J instead of your usual deli sandwich? Take this as a chance to
get something other than what you eat every day and treat yourself to something
Walk out of the bathroom with
toilet paper stuck to you
This is usually seen in
the movies, but trust us when we say it happens in real life. Check yourself
before leaving and get rid of it as soon as possible.
Know that life will go on and none of
these mistakes will ruin your life. It’s important to be able to laugh it off
and know that we’re all humans and make mistakes. You keep doing you, girl!
