I am moving out

November 25th, 2008 at 08:11 pm

I made my final decision now. I am going to move out come January and move in with a collegue at my workplace. She has the same age as me and she is only two days older than me. We both have similair family problems and similair goals.

Today, I went to eat with my dad, brother and sister to a restaurant. I figure it's a good time to tell him about me moving for real. As usual, he didn't take it easily and tell me that it doesn't make any sense and etc. I told him the reasons but less in details because you know... He wouldn't understand.

Since our point of view on this subject is different, I just leave it as simple as it is. He refused to help me in any ways except paying for my books for school. He tries to discourage me but I made it my final decision with my friend at work. I am simply not happy in my house and with everything going on so far. I think it's time for a new atmosphere... A new change and possibly, a way for me to grow up. I've been dying for something challenging.

The place that I am going to be living will be in the South Shore of Montreal. I prefer to stay in the Suburbs where it is less expensive and quieter. I hope to live near the bus station. That way, I will be close to my boyfriend's house, close to Montreal, close to take the buses to school and everything. The place near the bus station is unexpensive when I live with someone of course. I'm crossing my fingers that it will work out and I will find a nice place!

    nice! i hope everything works out well for you. some advice: cut back on EVERTHING right now: you will definately need the extra cash once you move, not only for bond and all that, but also for things you never thought you would need until you moved. i was soooo broke once i moved out, it took me about a year to recover even though my rent was only $87 a week and i had saved about $700 initially.
    just some advice!
    good luck with everything

    Some other advice- even though your future roommate is a friend, please don't forget to have the discussion of how bills will be paid (how much and who is actually responsible for paying it), how the place will be kept clean, how food will be shared, household rules, etc...

    I know from past experiences that if you don't open the discussion about these "small" issues misunderstandings can and will occur. I lived in a 3 bedroom apt. while in my junior year of college with my sister and four other girls- I actually had to take the phone bill each month, figure out who made which long distance calls and write a "bill" for each roommate of their share and when it was due.

    Congrats on moving out...

    lol yeah - susan has a good point! i forgot about those things seeing as i've been sharing for 5-6 years and it's pretty natural now. the best idea is a roster for cleaning. it may seem kind of silly but atleast you know where you're at. Smile

    Good Luck!

    I've already said before - I moved out on my own at 18 and was probably the hardest part of my life. BUT for some people sanity is more important than the frugalness living at home. & if it helps at all, I could not stand to live with my parents but we get along pretty darn well now that I am an adult. I hope you can say the same for your relationship in the future.
