Time To Go

There's are time in one's life when it's time to leave the nest. Spread your wings and fly. Move on to that level of maturity in your life. Stop mooching off of mom and dad. They will not be on this earth forever. It's time for you and your parents to give each other some space. You must know how to fend for yourself. Since you are over 18 years( or the age of majority) and you might like to go out at night, having your own place means that you do not have to observe a curfew and you do not have to sneak in quietly so would not wake your parents up. With you having your own place, at least you get to have some privacy. Yes! Privacy! It means that you do not have to sneak in your date late at night while your parents are sleeping. It just feels awkward to be living with your parents at a certain age. It feels well...ridiculous. High school. Okay. College...maybe to save some money. But after you graduate from starts to feel ridiculous. Especially when you are over 30 years old. You start to feel bored and really depressed about your situation in life. Very depressing. Like if your life is stuck in a rut. Well, this is the time get yourself out of that rut and that time is now! It's time to make a change in would life. Get up, get out and do something about the situation that you are in.


Get Prepared

1. Save your money. If you have a job, start saving your money. You are going to need it. If you are unemployed, start job hunting as soon as you can. Get another job if your first job does not cover enough of your expenses. You would also need money to cover moving costs as well. Put five percent of your paycheck into an emergency fund.

2. Check your credit score. Your credit score can have an affect on what apartment or house you would get. If you have poor to bad credit, look for property that do not check credit. find a co-signer or stay in an extended stay hotel until you get your credit straighten out.

3. Create a budget and stick to it. Whether it is student loans, gas, water, electricity, insurance, etc, you must cover your own personal expenses and other utilities. Don't forget to save up for your retirement.

4. Learn how to cook. Mom will not be around to cook for you forever. There are local cooking classes in your community and cooking tutorials on the that can utilize. Living off of junk food and take out all the time is a bad idea for your health.

5. Clean up after yourself. Unless you come from a wealthy family with a full staff you maids, keep your new place clean. That's right! Mom's not there to clean up after you forever.

6.Look for decorations and furniture. Decor and furniture does not have to be expensive. Thrift stores have good quality furniture at low prices. There are websites that you find decor and furniture at your price range.

7. Don't forget the essentials. The essentials include bathroom toiletries, kitchen utensils, and other miscellaneous items. You could find these items at good prices at your local Walmart, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Target, etc.

8. Get a roommate. Now this is optional. If you can afford to live alone, no problem. If you can't afford to with alone, get a roommate. Make flyers that includes with you want in a roommate and the cost of rent. Get to know this person who would be living with you. Discuss expenses and utilities with each other. What would some of the household responsibilities that you and your roommate would share?

9. Crowdfund. There are websites that can help you raise money to move out on your on.

I know that being on your own for the very first time in can be nerve wrecking. Don't worry! It take some to get adjusted into your new phase in your life. It's your life! Live it without curfews and restrictions.So please, move out before your younger sibling does. Or even before your own child does.

      When I was 21 I bought an old used station wagon and begin driving from Indiana to Southern California. I had no job waiting and no place to stay when I got there. I just had a couple of thousand dollars, my girlfriend at the time, and no college degree or worthy past employment.

      I signed up with temp agencies and worked closings at Jack-N-the Box. Eventually I got a job working for a collection agency which led me to making two of my best friends. Gradually I transitioned into Inside Sales roles in a aerospace company and then into software development companies.

      Was it "easy"? Hell no!

      However being "independent", making new friends, dating over the years, learning and evolving was a priceless experience!

      Today I'm married, live in large executive home, we have seven rental properties, have taken multiple Caribbean cruise, traveled to various islands, Hawaii, Paris France and so on. I even self-published a relationship book, taught classes, and appeared in newspapers, on local radio and TV.

      I say this not to brag because in all honesty I feel like I'm just an average guy who took a risk on himself. When I left home going back wasn't an option in my mind! Maybe that's what helped me endure the tough times.

      Some people in their 20s consider joining the military to buy themselves some time to figure out what they want to do with their lives. One of my cousins became a medical doctor and the military paid for his schooling.

      If one seeks to avoid war confrontation they might consider the Navy, Air Force, or Coast Guard. Some of their training schools provide transferable skills for private sector careers.

      The world may not owe you anything but you owe yourself the world!

      Not everyone in their twenties is capable of moving away from home so easily - many of us deal with mental illness that makes it difficult to work or function on our own. Some of us have disabled or afflicted parents to take care of and so we end up stuck at home out of obligation.

      It's definitely not so cut and dry.
