You guys are completely missing WW's point.
Of course it's cheaper to stay at home, of
course it's the smart move. But you can't just
bitch about that and being 18 gives you no freedom
when you're the one who put yourself there in the
first place. If someone is giving you free rent and
food, paying for your college what's there really to
You are 18, you have a choice to either stay with
your parents, under their rules and beliefs, or go
your own way with your "freedom".
You made the choice so deal with it.
No one will know real struggle until they're out on
their own completely.
I lived with my parents until I was 21. I am glad I did it.
Luckily, my parents let me do as I pleased and recognized that I was an adult. I would smoke, drink, and bang girls. As long as I kept my GPA up I was fine.
I remember having girls over, them leaving the next day, and my dad complimenting me. Pretty hilarious actually. I can honestly say that my dad has walked in on me having sex about three or four times. One time I was eating a girls pussy and he walked in, and I saw the look of horror on his face. HAHA I will never forget it.
I'm 26 now and me and my dad have a really good relationship. I tried paying him back for my schooling and he refused. I hope to be half the man he was one day.
