I moved out when I was 24. I moved out with Tyler because he got a job at a mine. I am about 5 1/2 hours from my parents.

I was 23. I had to, because my mom had just died and I couldn't afford the upkeep of the house while still in college.

Bought my own house at 25, worst mistake ever. Just sold that house and am back to renting at least for a year.

With my parents gone, I don't have a choice but to live on my own now. Sometimes I wonder if having that safety net would lessen my ever-present financial anxiety. :/

I went to a college dorm in the city when I was almost 18. That lasted half a semester...I had nothing to do, no animals, went out partying way too much, didn't actually go to class. Moved back, moved out again to a teensy one bedroom trailer the next year. That would have stuck that time, but my dad went into the military and Mom asked me to come home and help with my siblings. So I moved back. I moved to Texas a year or two later with my cousin, I'm not very good with the roommate thing. I hated living with her, all of a sudden her boyfriend was living there, and her friend that helped her move, and her friend's boyfriend..5 people and three dogs in a two bedroom cottage. And only two of us paying rent. And the two people sleeping on the couch yelling at me when I tried to let my dogs out in the morning. Ugh. I left.

So I'm still at home now, but I'm looking into purchasing a home soon. Maybe.

I was 19 when I moved out - mostly for school. I live about an hour away from my parent, though I'm home often on the weekends. I live with my SO (who comes home with me, most of the time. )

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I finally moved out of my parent's place this May at age 24. Bought a house with my boyfriend and his brother. We're about a 20 minute drive from my parent's house, and 5 minute drive from my sister's house.

I moved 13 hours away for school four years ago, and I'm living about 30 hours away for the summer. That said, I'm not completely independent and I still spend a lot of time with my dad and sister. I'm 21
