    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...

    I would love to move out

    and get a place of my own, but I cant afford to. I'm trying to pay my way through school. I have plans to get my degree in finance soon. So I cant blast my music and invite friends over at any time of the day. :(

    I want this really bad,

    but the thing is I don't want to move out by myself. I want to room with someone(s). This is to justify the split cost of rent and the fact that living by yourself would get very boring. Anyone else in the same situation? Thoughts?
