I am 28 years old. I live at home. I love it. Here are a few of the reasons why.
#1 – My parents are totally cool. Also, I don’t really like being alone in a house/apartment.
#3 – Saving money. I’m lucky in that my parents don’t charge me rent (or for groceries, or utilities.) Since, the JA and I will be starting our lives together in just a few months, any money saved for our future will help us achieve our goals quicker than we would had I been out and about these past few years.
#4 – Sickness. When I’m not feeling well, Mommy Janks takes care of me. Being pampered is the best!
#5 – Cleaning. Taking care of a living space can be a full-time job. While I clean my bedroom and bathroom, all the other spaces are Mommy J.’s responsibility. Frees up a lot of time for..trash tv?
So, as nice and grown up as having an apartment (again) will be, I’m going to continue to savor my time here at Casa de Janks.
Another plus? Since the JA has Ravens season tickets, I’ve already told him that he should not expect me to be at our place during football season. Big Blue (my parent’s couch) is just too difficult to quit cold turkey!
If you live at home, what’s your favorite perk? If you’re on your own, what do you miss most?
