I moved back home with my parents after college. I didn’t have any real job prospects, and knew this would be the best way to save money. I mean, it was done begrudgingly. When I was in college I imagined I’d be moving out after graduation and living on my own…I wish!

Currently, I’m still living with them…but now I don’t mind it so much. A couple of my friends live with their parents as well, which has made it easier to be in town. It really is a good way to save money, and I am really close with my family so I don’t have many complaints.

But I have heard comments from others along the lines of “You’re 25 years old why are you still living at home?” And that sucks.

Did you know a record 21.6 “Millennials” are living back with their parents? Obviously it is not an ideal situation, but you gotta do what you gotta do when the economy is down. I hate when people assume “living at home” means you’re a lazy bum who doesn’t work. I actually have a job, and am an entrepreneur…my choice lies in that I want to save my money for my not-so-distant wedding and to buy a house instead of rent. One of my friends said, “The thought of paying rent makes me sick.”

I’d love to live in my own place, set my own rules, be free to do whatever…and that will come soon. And yes, sometimes it’s hard seeing how other people are buying houses or making these big moves, which can lead to some insecurity. But for now, it is nice to have someone to take turns with in terms of cooking dinner. And I always have a workout or running buddy. Or just someone to hang out with and go shopping with.

So why do some people judge so much? I mean, in other cultures (such as my own, I was born in Paraguay), people don’t leave their homes until they get married!

Not really sure where this post led me, but it was good to rant a little bit. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic!

Did you/do you live at home after college? What was your experience like?

What do you think about college students moving back in with their parents?

It’s finally spring! This winter has been tough (at least here in NJ), so I’m really excited that it’s warm out again.
If you’re anything like me, cold, dreary, dark winter days means that you’re less motivated to work out. It’s hard to get outside and run in the cold (unless you’re training for something and NEED to be out there). It’s also hard to be motivated to go to the gym when you get out of work and it’s already dark out.
But those days are over! Warm days doesn’t just had to mean running or walking outside though. There are plenty of ways to exercise outdoors. Here are a couple of my ideas:
Go for a hike. Explore some new trails in your area or use it as an excuse for a little day trip. You can choose whether you want a flat trail or something more challenging. Great way to get in some exercise and be out in the great outdoors.
Go biking. I just found this park in my area (where I ran my most recent 5K) that has bike rentals on their premises. I definitely want to go and bike around the estate. If you don’t have a bike, this is perfect for you! If you do have a bike, grab a friend and go for a ride in your town or in a park. Find a local bike race and try something competitive (if that’s your thing). Or just go to the beach and go for a peaceful ride.

proseinthecity:

politicsprepandpearls:

Feminist-a person who supports feminism.

Feminism-the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Why do women say this? It’s like some women treat “feminism” as a taboo word that will drive away men…

If the word does drive away a certain type of man, you can be sure that those guys should NOT have girlfriends.

yup.

idk what to think right now…I’m totally happy with what I’m doing and what I’m working on. I work part-time at a community college doing marketing (and will be coaching in Sept) and work on my own time on my social media business and fitness website.

Yeah I don’t make a lot, but I love what I do. I don’t mind going into work. I love the people I work with…but the dilemma all comes down to money.

Like I said, I don’t make a lot..and sometimes it’s frustrating to see other people I know who are making way more than me and buying houses and stuff. So it’s a catch-22.

I already committed to coaching in September. but once I’m back from South America (going for 3 weeks in July), I don’t know what to do. Should I look for a FT job and just try to make more money so I can move out and save up for a wedding, house, etc? Or keep trying to make my passion and dream work? IDK. I really dont.

Has anyone gone through anything like this before? Even if you haven’t I’d love to hear your thoughts please! Adding in a last sentence with question mark so I can open up answers lol ?
