I no longer am a 24 graduated professional living with their parents.
However, I cried like a 14 year old little girl when I left my parents home this pass Sunday. In my life there have been times where I tell myself....... "I need to move out, my family is driving me crazy" but from the last time I moved out to the dorms and returned home within two semesters (five years ago) I have never truly pictured myself from moving again. I did spend a summer away from my family but I came for a visit home once and constantly convinced people to come to the bay area to visit me.
So, when I said my goodbye and had a dramatic moment like Laguna Beach when Lauren moves to LA... it was only natural to cry when I put my big sun glasses and waved as I drove away. Although, I then realized I live 15 minutes way from my parents and I really am not alone at my new place, so day 3 living away from home feels okay.
Enjoying life trying to make the new place feel like home....
