becoming Independant - November 1st 2010, 05:11 AM

Iím new college student still living in her parent house and have to commute two hours by bus each way. I love house that I grew up in for the 18 years Iíve been alive. I enjoy my family and the respect we have for one another. I have an issue though I'm the first child, and am very loyal (okay not that big an issue) but next year i want to move into an apartment closer to my college, I want to go out with friends at night this year because thatís the only time i have. My parents and I have a negotiation that now that I'm eighteen. I can go out when I want as long as they know where I' going to be, how Iím getting home who I'm with, and if i am coming home. (I am fine with all this.) My problem is that I never go out. And the other thing is when i do start to get out more Iím not sure if i will remain patient with keeping my parents updated (this will most likely be after i move out.) I was ready to move out this year but they convinced me to stay (for money reasons) now Iím really bummed because now my life consists of classes, bus, and home and thatís it. Its sad for me because then i miss out on friends, activities and college involvement. One of my friends told me i should get involved with my community; the thing is that when i get home by bus itís already dark and Iím usually booked with home work. The other thing is the buses don't run on weekends. I will be getting my license in the middle of November, yet Iíll be using my dadís car and by then Iíll be getting a job for gas. I know that I will then have more things to do but I would still like to be out with friends too. How do I get out of my phase of staying at home and try to be more independent?

Even though I'm not in College or University yet I would recommend you closer to your College like you said you were going to do. If there is monetary issues then maybe it is best to stay at home but if you really are looking for lots of involvement and a better, less time-consuming life then its best you find a way to make it work with the money. Or maybe you could move in with a friend who also lives close to the College?
No money - Socialisation, Involvemement, Happy
Money - Long buses, No social life, Probably Unhappy?

Your choice You probably know all this already but I just though i'd put it out there x
