im moving out for the first time, im 23 and live far too long at home, probably because if laziness. I have two choices. Either stay in my hometown (its like a middle big city, 175.000 people, pretty laidback). I can stay for another 6 months in a room i almosted rented or i can take my shit and go off to leave in a big city close to a million and live there for avout a year. What should i do? im doubting for two months now. Im kinda depressed and want more but maybe its not a good thing to do that. What should i do?

It depends on a few factors:
1) income vs cost of living
Some jobs pay better in a big city, some don't but almost always your rent/mortgage will be way more expensive in the big city. So, can you afford to live in the big city or will you be living paycheck to paycheck to make ends meet?
2) long term career
Is it better for your career to live in the big city or can you have the same job in your hometown? If your dream job only exists in the big city, you may be happier doing what you love than staying home and taking a lesser job or not getting promotions because you're unwilling to move.
3) Do you like the simple life or are you attracted to the big city night life?
Some people are just small town folks. I know I am. I've lived in 2 big cities and didn't like it. Sure there's more to do, but I'm more at ease in my hometown. I'd rather visit the big city a few times a year than live there with all the traffic and hassles.0
