Not Really


Sorry I haven't been good about updating/checking up on your blogs. Recently broke the 2k/month mark, so I thought, whoo, time to move the fuck out.

Went apartment hunting, found good one, got application, etc.

Told parents. Next morning, they wake me up and tell me I can't. Dad makes conditional: Save up 20,000 and I can move out. At this rate, that means it'll take 10 months.

So I've been wasting away playing Oblivion last few days.


How would I go about moving out anyway? Need to

1. Set up private bank account.
2. Collect all my monthly checks/payroll records to prove to apartment managers I can afford rent without parental help.
3. Collect all my valuables and sneak them out of my house.
4. Profit?

Why the fuck can't my parents just kick me out of the house like every other parent? Is this my punishment for not being a fucking loser slob that the parents can't stand? What the shit is going on here.

  1. I left home real early, and did it when I thought I was ready. Turns out I wasn't, and had to move back. My only advice is: burn no bridges, you never know if you'll have to retreat.

  2. Damn, I moved out with a lot less saved up than that. They're probably just wanting to make sure you've got enough of a cushion in case something goes wrong.

  3. Well man, I'm a parent myself, and I have to tell you that we have a hard time letting go. It's definitely not punishment, maybe a bit of over-protectiveness though. A good way around that would be to say that you were mulling around the idea of joining the military. I think after that, they would be more open to letting you do your own thing. Just come home with some Marine Corps brochures.

    In a way you should feel lucky, I was a straight A student, had two jobs and my parents kicked me out at age 15...

  4. Sounds like they are being a bit of helicopter parents.

  5. Feel blessed I was kicked out at 16 at the start of my junior year of high school. It was not fun to say the least, but on the bright side it forced me to grow up a lot sooner than all of my friends. And I am a better person for it as a result.

  7. Sounds like you've got the steps down. I would personally save up a bit more money, though. At least 5,000. You'll need to pay first and last month's rent as well as a security deposit. Not to mention your bills and food.

  11. They can't stop you from leaving if you are of age. The only question is whether it's worth pissing them of or not.

  14. Are they actually providing you with any sort of financial help right now? If not, then just move. They can't hold you there. If they are, though, I guess it's understandable that they have that power.Sucks balls, though.

  15. Maybe think of it as an unvoluntary investment. Living for free for some more time can allow you to build some capital, as your parents intend. After all, you don't want to move back in with them soon, do you?

  16. you work right? or do you make that much just off of blogging? if so wow..

  17. They're smart; who knows if the income will last. 10 months is enough to tell whether you'll be able to keep the job going/maintain that income.

    Unless you want financial aid for college, getting 'kicked out' isn't helpful for most.

  18. it's nice that your doing well with your own money! if your dad makes that decision, don't be mad, he wants the best for you and you surely will understand, when in the future you have a kid, and he will want to move on, the slight idea of him living away from you will disgust the shit out of you hahahaha

  19. 2k a month? buy a house. Strike now while the economy is crap. 3BR 2BR houses that were once 300k are now 100k. keep saving or take out a loan from a family member or anyone who will not screw you over with interest. Or you could shop around fora tiny house with a tiny price tag; still beats an apartment :)
