Sup blades, got a problem for ya. I'm an 18 year old guy. I've been accepted to both a local community college, and another one a few hours away where I'd live on campus. I want to stay at home for my first 2 years, so I don't have to leave my friends, etc.. but my parents are strict about the stupidest things. Cause of this, I want to leave just so I have the freedom... (I'd really prefer to stay at home though) - I can't have my girlfriend sleep over. (Unless I crash on the couch..) - I can't go to parties / drink (I'm in Ontario.. the legal age is 19.. I'm 1 year off) - Curfew of 11 PM on school nights (Really? I'm a legal adult) I get these are fairly reasonable requests on their part. It's just, I feel I'm at the stage in my life where I need to start making my OWN decisions. Learn from my mistakes. This is supposed to be my growing experience, and I almost feel like if I stay home for college, I'll lose out on; -Co-ed sleepovers -No curfews -Etc I just want to make my own decisions, you know? It's not that I want to do all of those things ALL THE TIME - I just want the freedom to be able to. Thoughts?
