I just moved back home, but I lived in another city for a few years, for college. And I lived in Europe for a while. I already have the travel bug again and I'm definitely considering either grad school abroad or applying for a job abroad after grad school here in the states. The world is so big, and there's so much to see and do. Stepping outside of your little hometown is one of the BEST things I think you could do. Conquer that fear, take charge and embark on a new chapter. What are you afraid of? You have your parents on the phone or email. (I hope, depends on your relationship) I hope you have friends who would continue to be friends and keep in touch. If you do it the right way, you'll meet more friends and more resourceful people. You'll probably tap into a resiliency and resourcefulness that you didn't know you had.
And you can always go back. What do you mean get kicked out of the house? Where are you planning to live?
But either way, I would go. Plan well, get a job before you go, or school, a program, whatever. Have a structure to fall into. Most of all, enjoy it. You don't really need a car, depending on the city. I moved to NYC, where it was pointless to drive. My parents drove me up there, but you could also fly if you can afford it, you could sell your things now for some money to help in transit, pay a friend `to drive you up UHaul style, etc. Unless its a city where you need to drive, of course. Big cities often have great public transit. Depends on where. Do what you feel is best, but challenge yourself as well. Good luck.
