Living at home, no ambitions, no goals, and mooching is bad at any age over 18, but if you're living at home trying to save money, finish school etc, and your parents are understanding of that, then what's the problem. If the alternative is you live on the streets, then which is more embarrassing to you? You are lucky in that you probably don't have to struggle as much as your friends who have to pay for everything. As weird as it may sound, cherish this, because it won't last forever. Plus if your friends are your friends, then they will understand!0

I'm 25 and counting. -.-; Though, I've had it somewhat rough. Drug addiction, bipolar. No money for college. They say people who do drugs for X amount of years' maturation is delayed. So, I'm more like 19... That's my justification, anyway. Makes it difficult to really establish myself outside the nest. And with the economy fuck-up, it's more common than not. Mix in a seething hatred of corporate America and capitalism, and you've got yourself a rebel without a cause.
Besides. Moving out too soon, and you'll just waste a bunch of money and end up having to go back. I won't leave until I'm making at least 30k a year. I tried moving out while making 15-20k a year, with a roommate. It was unpleasant. I'd much rather have some good money stashed back and have a higher quality of living while at home than barely get by on the outside. And besides, my mom needs me.0
