This is one of the most embarrassing topics I will ever have at the age of 30. I still live at home! When this topic of where do you live and who do you live with comes up it always puts a huge weight on me. When I tell people I still live at home I usually get answers like, ” I wish I still lived at home” No you don’t! ” Your so lucky you don’t have to pay for rent.” I do pay rent ” Rent is so expensive.” Yeah, thats why I can’t seem to move out. Bla Bla Bla. Its all the same. Do I really want to me living at home with my boyfriend at the age of 30? Hell no! this is the worst possible thing for me at my age. How am I able to consider myself to be a adult when I still live at home??? Thats right, I can’t! I have a younger brother who moved out about two years ago, and even though we never compared ourselves to each other. I hate that he has the ability to live with room mates, and I’m still at home. Probably due to the fact that I don’t have a full time job and embarrassingly never have. This being said I would be able to support myself if I did move out, I just want to have enough to buy things like you know, a new bed, a tv, chairs, and a kitchen table. I also love buying things like books, cloths, and pretty much everything else. I can’t help it! I love new things! This is my down fall! Ughhhhh, I just want to move out! I do have standard though as to where I want to move. I want it to be a nice place, no basement apartment, and I want to live in the neighbourhood that I still live in. Is this a crime? I don’t think so, its just what I want. I love my neighbourhood, my boyfriend and I have our favourite coffee shops and restaurants. Its also very easy to get around the city we live in. So no I won’t settle for an apartment in a different neighbourhood, when I love the one I live in now. I also love the fact that Im able to walk to work. This is one thing I’ve always been able to do, and I don’t think I would do well if I wasn’t able to walk to work.
