Well i'll start,
I have been doing great. I have learned a lot in the past 2 months about my new found love. My eldo. Getting ready to change jobs in the next couple of weeks and that is taking its toll on me. Holidays are coming and i have been busier than ever at work and home. Spending a lot of time with my friends and family through the holidays and planning a vacation/birthday party in the begining of January. Turning the big 21 and having a party at the casinos in Atlantic City. That's really about it to give a generalized statement.

I still can't decide after 3 months whether to keep my car and drop a 500 in it, then build it up, or trade for my grandmothers car with its 500 in it and build that up.

I'm supposed to go in early tomorrow, but I'm not going to.

So all in all.... Solid.

Well,
i have to tell someone since all my friends are still sleeping or at work. I have great news i am moving out VERY soon no more mooching off of mom and dad. YEAH!!!!! One downside NO GARAGE but the landlord said that if i really wanted one he said i am aloud to build it with him paying for the materials and making my rent a little cheaper. My goal of getting out of the house before or shortly after i turn 21 is finally looking good. I am soooo happy.
sorry guys i had to tell someone

I am ready for all of that for rent it is included with electric, heat and cable. All i have to pay is internet and cell phone. I have been searching for months upon months. My parents charge a lot for rent.

I hate that they do it but you are right it has tought me to manage my money at an early age and not to blow it on stupid shit. I have friends that are 25 going on 26 and are still living at home. Now don't flip if i offened someone by that but his situation is bad. He has no intention of moving out and his brother is still mooching off his parents at the age of 30.

You are right. my buddy dropped out of college and lived at home for free and the dude wouldn't get a job and wouldn't get up to go to work because he didn't have to pay rent. now he does daycare to eek out a living at 23 years old. he was normal in highschool and he just went down hill after that.

It's bad that people just don't have the drive to suceede in life and go out on there own. I personally don't understand it. I almost moved out 6 months ago but my current vehicle went to shit so i decieded to stay at home while i payed off the caddy. Now the caddy is almost payed off i am ready to "leave the nest". I am going to be transferring jobs soon (same company) and my hours are going to increase and same with money. I figure i might as well just get a single bedroom apartment so i can't have anyone move in with me and i don'thave to worry about anyone but me. I am thinking about gettting a dog as my roommate.
Just curious what is the average price for a one bedroom where you live?????

I'm sitting at $650 a month. That's about average around suburban KC.

That is about average for around here as well maybe a little lower depending on the amount of space.
