Surviving Home

11 12 2009

We have all gotten used to being independent and on our own at college, but what do we do after graduation when we need to move back home? How do we prevent going insane?

Here are some tips:

1. Keep up on chores and they won’t be able to nag you about anything.
2. Be respectful to them and avoid any unnecessary fights or arguments.
3. HAVE A JOB and SAVE UP MONEY! That way, you can move out sooner!
4. Crash at their house, eat there, do laundry there but drive to film shoots as much as possible.
5. Go out with friends and keep your social life alive.
6. Do your own laundry and start cooking your own meals. Prove that you can be independent and they will treat you as that way, or at least, more so than they may otherwise.
7. Be happy you don’t need to pay rent so it is okay to get paid less starting out at the job you really want.
8. Take this time to figure out who you are now and where you’d like to go from here.
9. Don’t get too comfortable being back home. If you do, you may not want to start working, might not care if the job’s a failure because you don’t need to pay bills or you may not be pushed to become a true adult yet. Set a time limit of when you plan on moving out.
10. Get used to paying for yourself for things. Cut yourself off with mom and dad’s money. Use this time to start supporting yourself so you will be better prepared for the future.
