What do you think of living with your parents versus living on your own?
I moved out of my parents house at 16 and I would never consider going back. I lived with friends at first because I was still in high school. My parents were abusive and drank too much alcohol. Then, I got an apartment with a boyfriend and then on my own when I was old enough to do so. Now, I have my own house that I bought at 23. Owning a house is quite a bit of upkeep that I wasn't prepared for. But, I hire people to take care of upkeep and repairs for me and I have learned some things thanks to Skype calls with my dad since I no longer live near home. I enjoy having my own space because its quiet and I can keep things exactly as I want them. If I want to turn the heat up, I can do that without having to ask anyone else. If I am too warm, I turn the heat down. If I want to buy something for decoration or furniture, I can do that. Downside is that I have to pay all of the bills on my own but it gives me motivation to make enough money to make sure those bills are paid.
