Is it really as scary the 1st time you moved out on your own?

For me it's definitely all the bureaucratic stuff... like making sure I pay my bills on time, making sure I fill out my tax forms on time, making sure I call the doctor again when they tell me to call back (I have to go to the doctor a lot), making sure I reply to all the emails from the social security that I receive some money from, making sure I get all the stuff for university done (not the academic stuff like papers but the bureaucratic stuff like signing up on time and writing emails to the different university offices if I have a question and writing emails to professors etc.), making sure to reply to the letters from my landlord, making sure to call back the folks from my political party when they call me, making sure to return my books to the library...
On their own, they're all relatively small things but in accumulation, it's really crazy. Sometimes I feel like I could spend my whole day sitting at home returning calls and emails and paying bills. It's not even about the money, just the fact that I have to keep everything in my head... while at the same time trying to have a life ;-). I wish I could just hire a secretary for myself.1

Yes, It was for me, @IRockTheCity.
I had a Huge fight with my mom one day, And packed ship when she embarrassed me in front of her own friends. I ended up Living with my Married sister, And as I lay under the covers, Shaking Like a Leaf, I Yearned to Run out of the house and Go right back to My... Parent's house.
However, I said "NO," I will Not give in. Mom was wrong, I needed to be Strong, And ever since then, Although I used to go back and Live with them for awhile when I needed a quick break from the Outside World... I never looked back.
It Is a bit "Scary" at First, But the Longer you do it, The Better it Feels to be Your own Straw Boss.
Good luck. xx3
