  • Where did you live when you moved out?

    When you first moved away from good ol' mom and dad how old were you, where did you move, and what was your place like?

    I was eighteen years old, just a few days after graduation. I moved to Provo, UT and rented a dippy little basement apartment for three hundred a month. Brown carpet, no cable TV. Loved it!

      A place right on Orangethorpe and Gilbert in Fullerton. $499 to split a bedroom, horrible landlord who never officially said she lived there but then lived on the couch and ate people's food without asking, the kitchen was always gross, and I shared a room with a girl who was very alternative in her life.

        I was 16 when I left home for the 1st time. I moved to a studio apartment in Huntington Beach with my ex and Paige. We lived there for 2 years until the ex and I broke up, and we ended up back with my parents.

        Paige and I moved out again just over a year ago. We now live with Anders in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in Irvine.

          I was 19 and moved in with a guy. BAD MOVE. My parents were totally against it. It was in Simi Valley, not far from where I lived. It was a nice house. Then I met Clinks and we moved into a friends apartment and we had NOTHING.

            Three bedroom house with shag carpet(Yuck!), but the rest of the house was in perfect shape. Perfect bachelor pad and rent was cheap. Not too mention it was in a good neighborhood.
            The only bad thing out of all of it was occasionally there was a Medi- Flight Helicopter landing nearby at the hospital. The vibration from the copter blades would shake the house.
            But very glad there are such resources like this to save lives.

              I moved into an apartment, 2 bedroom, in the same neighborhood I grew up in. It was nice, but small. I kind of miss it sometimes. It was in an apartment complex, a walk from the train, 20 minutes train ride into the city. Everything around me. For a few months we had no counch or table. But of course, we had a TV. So we use the box as a table and sat on the floor.

                I was 21 or 22. I moved to a two bedroom two bath apartment. It was only $575.00 a month back in the day (early 90's) The same one goes for about $1k now. I loved the apartment, but hated the neighbor below me. he had one of those 80's mega stereos and he would blare it. It would literally shake the apartment and make the pictures crooked on the walls, not to mention waking up the baby.

                I did love the apartment or maybe just being on my own. Alas, after the divorce I could not afford it. I was only working part time and not making very much. So, I moved back with my parents and about 2 years later moved out again.

                  I was a late bloomer (mostly because I didn't graduate college until I was 24 and lived at home for college, and had every intention of moving out shortly after that, but then my dad died and I had mom and other stuff to take care of because of that).

                  Anyway I finally moved out when I was 28 with my friend Scott (who is now married to my niece) to an apartment in Burbank for $300 each. Landlord sucked, the place was dumpy compared to the other apartment buildings on the street. But the memories we made there will last me forever.

                    I moved out when I was 17, right after graduation with a group of friends--3 guys and my best friend. We rented a fully furnished gorgeous house (one of the guy's grandma's house) on a river for $200 apiece, including all utilities. We had the best summer! We'd do family-style dinners, the boys would barbecue and do the dishes. One of the guys was SO clean, he drove the rest of us crazy.

                    It was great, considering my parents were divorcing at the time. I think I had the most mature home life of my mom, dad and me. And I lived with smelly farting boys. :blink:

                    The five of us lived together until I decided to take a nanny job in late Sept. and moved to Portland, then went on to college the following year. But out of everyone I was close to in high school, I'm still the closest to these four people. We were in each other's weddings and we still talk all the time.

                      Well...I moved into student housing while I was in college, but moved back in with my parents so I could pay off my loans instead of paying rent. When I finally did move out (in 2001), it was into a tiny studio apartment - that cost $1k/month. :blink: It was really close to LAX, so every time a plane landed, the windows rattled. Management was meh, but at the time I loved it because I was on my own. It was the only time I ever lived completely by myself.

                        I moved out when I was 17 into my college dorm. I was on the university's minors watch list for my first two weeks of college. The list was also known as jailbait watch by the frats on campus.

                            I was 22, the summer after college graduation and I moved....all the way across the street from my parents' house. Right across was a property with a house and a little 1 bedroom mother-in-law unit. The woman who lived in the little house was getting married and moving, so my now-husband and I moved in. It was $500 a month. It was so cute and cozy, and if I didn't want to cook dinner, I could just run across the street and see what they were having.

                              I was 20. Went to San Diego. My first year I was in student housing. Same with the second, but they were like on-campus apartments. Then I moved to a couple different apartments down there and then a condo by Miramar Air Station. I didn't mind living so close. It was kinda cool actually.

A good girl bonding session leaves you feeling so refreshed. :love: I think of it as a NEED vs a want. There are just things that you need to talk to other women with. You may have the best relationship in the world with your husband, but there are just times you need your girlfriends. It makes for a healthier and happier you which makes everything else you do better.
