In this essay, I follow the migration journey of a young middle‐class woman migrating from Serbia to Germany. I explore the existential condition of stuckness that she reports as a continuous impasse throughout various stages of her migration career. By focusing on her migration contradiction, I survey the intimate temporalities brought about by being stuck differently in changing contexts.
