Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I have more formal education than most BS/BA graduates and still cannot afford to move out of home, even though I am cheap.
My mom will be on oxygen soon and will eventually die of a terminal condition while dealing with chronic illness in the meantime.
I have really bad asthma and work in a place that is is not so great for my lungs. I need a better job so I can move to a healthier place.
I need a good man with whom I have mutual interest and a future, and I need to find and use the right chance to learn a foreign language.
Either I have posture issues or chronic migraine or something, but I cannot go more than a couple days without a one-sided headache. This has been the case for over a decade.
You and about 15 MILLION
other 25-30 year old college graduates
Its nothing personal, that is how economic cycles work, an eb and flow. In the downtime, folks need to concentrate and what God allows them. Are we supporting our families, friends, households, and communities socially, psychologically, spiritually, emotionally, and by physically lending a hand whenever or however we are able? Money isn't everything, and the economic model of go to school, get a job, move out, start a family isn't exactly viable these days. In truth it is relative, in Chicano and Latino culture I know plenty of folks in the early to mid-20s whose parents WON'T let them move out if they wanted to!
All my gripe belongs in the politics section
