I’m way too old to still be living with my parents. Now that I have a degree and I know what I want and need to do, I have to become independent and move out. 4 months ago

So in a year and a half I want to move out of my house and into my own place. It doesn’t have to big, just big enough to handle me. 10 months ago
in August of 2011 i will have my own place with a friend from highschool!!! 2 years ago
I think it is a work in progress…I am really keen to own my own place, however unrealistic that might be on my salary.
But I think I just need to stick to my budget, and keep saving for a place, because even if in the end I use that money for my masters or persuade my parents to double the investment! 2 years ago
have roommates which is a different experience than living alone. I enjoy parts of it, but there are times I wish it was just me and the cats. My guy from Washington has moved in as well and things are shakily moving along. It is an eye opener to live with someone and witness all that is them. Massive out put of cash for essentials and maintaining essentials as well as large electric bill even with my paranoia over turning things off. Both of my roommates aren’t as paranoid as I about shutting things off when they go.
Over all it is worth it, it is part of growing up. I’ll admit there are times I wish I was still living at home and helping my parents out as there were different stresses there and I got to sleep and read more often too. 2 years ago
School starts tomorrow, which means tonight I’m moving into my new place… for good. No more mama to talk to, no more lazy old dog to sleep with me, no more home, no more summer.
Of course I’m excited to get the year started, but the first few weeks back are always hard ones. 2 years ago
I’m back at my mom’s place after spending the weekend at my new place, and I already started to miss being able to swing open my front door to a lawn and fresh air. The fact that I’m (literally) living in a small room for the next year began to dawn on me. My place is going to need some serious work for it to feel like home, and I’m not sure where to start…
I’ll be back Wednesday, and while I’m gone the landlord is having the place repainted. It’s still going to be white, but there are holes and scuffs all over from past renters, and it could look better. My oven and refrigerator are also being replaced, due to the fact that they don’t even work.
I didn’t have a toilet paper holder either, wtf? 2 years ago
This is the first night I’m spending in my new place, and already I’ve met my drunk neighbor and his friend (who was puking in the rose bushes), I am stealing wifi that’s under the name “hobbithole”, and had a GIANT firework wizz past my window.
Welcome back to a college town.
My place looks great though!! It really does. I’m getting some fresh air in it, got my bed all put together and made (thanks to my mama), and hung up my cork board.
This place will be home in no time. 2 years ago
Last week we rented a good-sized uhaul and filled it with everything my apartment needed; bed, couch, rug, table(s), chairs, dresser, coffee table, mattress, and poof (our nickname for that sponge thing you put on top of your mattress).
All the big stuff is in, and now it’s time to get it all situated and to bring in the important stuff. My mom and I are going up tonight to start, and I’m excited.
There’s kind of a problem though… I can’t seem to find my keys :/ I don’t think I’ve ever lost them this badly before, and I’m getting worried. 2 years ago
I gave my new place another visit last week, took some pictures and got the measurements from the landlord. I was so in love with it still, and so excited to move in! They even added a bathtub!- what I thought to be the only downfall of the place.
Until tonight, when my mom and I took the time to map out how much “space” I have to find what will and won’t fit.
The list of things that WILL fit is a hell of a lot shorter. I have to decide between a table and a TV. So really I have to decide between entertainment and studying, and BOTH are extremely important. How am I suppose to live alone and not have the option of watching one of my favorite movies whenever I need to?
It can’t happen.
There is a possible remedy to this situation, and that is moving into the unit across from me. It’s the same size, except for a lofted bedroom, making the entire space one big living area. It would be perfect. And to me, perfection is watching tv while sitting at my table. 2 years ago
