So I am looking for some advice on whether I should move out or not. My friends are moving into a new place and are looking for a third roommate. I am a 24 year old second year student currently living at home studying kinesiology at my local college, I have a 4.00 (on a 4.33 gpa scale) and I am doing well academically. I still find school pretty stressful and difficult to keep up with but I feel as if I am starting to get into a grove a bit more academically. Why I want to move out is so that I can have a bit of a better social life, not just just to get laid, but hanging out with friends without my parents over my shoulder. I also think it would help my build a little bit more independence a become more of my own man.
The main factor blocking my is that I am doing a full course load and I need extra circulars such as volunteer time to build up my resume. If i moved out I need to work a minimum of 15 hours a week and I would need to cut into my savings to a moderate degree. As well I also I am transferring next year because my college only offers a 2-year diploma, so my gpa has to stay at 3.7 (on a 4.33 gpa scale A-) so that I can keep my options open for transferring. I am moving out next year anyways because I am transferring and moving away from home
I want to move out be more independent be able to party a bit more and bring girls back to the crib but at the same time I have to take care of school and extra circulars. I need to make the decision within the next couple days and it’s hard both sides seem good
If I stay home, I have stability it guarantees that I do well academically because I’ll have a lot more time. I also get to save a lot of money. On the downside, I am less independent, I feel as if it makes me a little soft and it definitely doesn’t help in the dating department
