    I live with 5 other people

    who never clean up after themselves. Everyday I clean the same messes that were there the day before. I just turned 18 and I don't have a job but I start college at the end of March and I want nothing more than to move the F out of my house. I should be getting paid for all of...

    I'm 19 and I'd really like to move out of my

    parents house because I want to learn to be independent. My mother is very controlling and doesn't teach me much. She just does things for me. I've tried to explain how I want to learn but she doesn't get it. How do I tell them I want to move out? They say I'll save money if I...

    I would love to move out,

    but it all seems so hard. My mother will be moving in with her boyfriend, who has a small apartment, so I need to find a place soon (unless I want to spoon with them, which they said I was very welcome to do). But I will be 18 soon, so I would like to get a place to live. I am...

    Today has been a day from hell.

    Here is the basic situation. I'm 19 always paid for things that I wanted and rarely asked for my parents help in anything whether it be social,school or extra activities. I have a 16 year old brother who gets everything he wants if he begs enough. He spends every penny he gets...

    parents house a few weeks ago. The job that I have right now is at a restaurant that is like a 40 minute drive. Don't get me wrong I love working there I just feel like things would be easier if I lived closer. I just got lucky that the owner of the place where I did an...

    Wonderful Parents, But They Don't Support This Decision. I Need A Second Opinion.

    I asked them today, after we fought about college and how I am not able to go once again this semester because life keeps getting in the way, how they felt about me moving out. I am 19 years old now, and I have been dreaming of the day that I can have my own space for a year...

    It's not that I don't love my parents,

    I really do but living with my mother is emotionally exhausting, everyday she comes home and points out that I need a job to get mail sent to the house in order to get my state ID and I need my ID to get a job not to mention to most people I look 12

    I am very excited I recently put a holding fee

    down on an apartment. It's great because all the utilities are included and it's right across the street from my job. I am really looking to being on my own and not having to drive 40 minutes to work each day. I also feel this will give more freedom to do other things I've...

    I'm 34 and I'm going to be 35 soon.

    And on that day, I'm moving out. Going out west, because sadly this economy sucks and I'm in love with a man out there.

    I'm Not A Second-class Citizen

    I know why they want to keep me here. It's obvious that they're afraid to lose their children. But I've got to break loose. I am almost 19 years old, and I always told myself that when I was 18, I would leave my parents' house. I just knew that I'd move away to a University, and...

    Not Sure How To Go About It....

    Way back when, probably from ages 12-15, more or less, I used to think I'd move out as soon as I hit 18: get a job, get a house, get married, have a kid. Obviously, I was crazy, but that's a story for another day, lol. After 15 or 16 or whenever, I stopped having that drive and...

    I also wanna move out because my bro and pop dont get on with me much which I wish they could but they are pretty stressed out. I love them but not much, isn't that cruel that I feel this way?
