Heh, the last thing you have to worry about is boring me with that kind of stuff since I find myself doing that all the time, but now I feel really bad about saying what I did, since I understand completely why they might have to depend on you to the extent they do, so I apologize if what I said sounded a bit harsh, but even if you think it didn't I apologize anyways


What no! It wasn't harsh I assure you Sir. Everyone is lazy, calling people out on it is fine xD . You said nothing offensive so sorry for making you say sorry? @~@ Lol, don't worry about it though.

I have always been a very independent person. From a young age I was taught to act mature, and learned how to deal with my own problems. Living by myself won't be a problem at all.

I've been living on my own since, September 2013, except for August 2007- December2009 I was on my own during college. I would not have moved back with my parents but they need help with my brother so I lived with them until I September last year when my father retired.
1. I have to say I love living on my own. I always been very independent, and my mature person, I think it comes from helping my parents raise my older brother. So far, I have yet to have any problems being on my own.
2. As far as what age someone should move out, I have to says that depends on the parents and the individual.
3. I'm not nervous about growing up, I look forward to it,

I don't want to work so no. If you're referring to housework though, if someone were to pay for everything I'm pretty sure I could take care of myself.

Becoming independant was exhausting. Living on my own, but still with help from my parents, was no problem. It's becoming financially indepented that's tiring. It's an artform to learn how to budget your life. Managing a personal and social life is hard when working a full time job. But you get the hang of most of it after awhile, and it's not so terrifying.

1) I still live with my family, so I can't say that I know what it's like to live on my own yet. With the rising taxes and cost of everything though, living on your own is becoming expensive. It's expensive enough owning a car Dx

2) Ehh.. I think times have changed honestly. These days there's a high risk living on your own if you don't have a stable job and reliable transportation. Plenty of adults in my family have moved back home due to unstable living conditions where they were. Prices inflate, jobs are tight, and the rising cost of food doesn't make it any easier. My granddad always said that you had more security living with a family instead of alone. Of course there are obvious pros and cons, but for the moment I feel content living with my family.

3) Scariest thing? Hmm.. not being able to pay the bills. That's happened in the past and it's a really horrible feeling.

1) It was easy forme to transition from living at home to living on my own. My mom thought me at young age how to cook, clean how to do laundry the works. I did find it hard it the beginning adjusting financially cause you are paying for everything yourself. That's where most people tend to get discourage cause reality just hit you in the face " you're on your own you have to be responsible". If you're not that means no food on table or roof over your head. But once you get your prioritize straight and stick with them the only thing you have left is being homesick 2) i started living on my own when Iwas 17 I got a job at UPS so I was golden. I' m not really sure there's certain age where you have to move out but at the same time you don't want to be 40 and still be living in the same room you grew up in. 3) I'm 28 now I got my little degree from UCLA still working for UPS (in a better paid position) the only thing I worry about is loosing my job cause the economy still sucks.

I had wanted to live on my own before I'd turned 15 to the point where I wished legal emancipation was a possibility but realistically it just wasn't. So, instead, I ensured I at least had a job and a small amount of money put away as soon as I was able to work--at 16. Not even a week after my 18th birthday my parents, one in particular, were ready and willing to treat me as a burden and a nuisance.

My dad decided, without having mentioned to me whatsoever, that it had been my responsibility to "babysit" my little sister after 9pm and decided to send some really nasty and hateful voice-mails threatening to kick me out over said reason--which I'd never previously heard a dang thing about....good job asshole I probably cared more for you than the people you are currently clinging onto. I hope when you grow old and frail you'll have enough time to eventually understand how you took for granted everyone that might have been willing to give a shit about you as you die and you'll die alone. Think that's harsh? This guy is a pretty big douchebag and what I wish for him is the lowest level of hell he could experience for what he is.

ANYWAY LOLLL

.....

living on your own is awesome as shit. As I mentioned it was my goal from an early age on.....and I attained it one way or another. It doesn't take much more effort than a school day and you can do whatever the frick you want all the time. Wanna walk around boot-naked eating steak and watching anime for hours on end.....? Entirely possible....whatever you do is up to you and although you may have to work or make some sacrifices/trade-offs--it's completely worth it.

I can understand his feelings.

I figure I'll manage somehow. I know how to make enough food to survive, and I'm working on learning how to cook better. I know how to wash dishes, and load a washer and dryer. I know how to vacuum, and how to fold things. Well, more or less know how to fold things. I always seem to make them a bit crooked when I fold.

The only thing that would worry me is the cost of living is so damn high. I'm poor
