Dublin people. How can you possibly stand going to college whilst living at home? Obviously it’s great living at home in the sense that you’re not paying bills, paying for food, having your washing done, etcetc, like, so many pros. But how can you stand it? My sister’s ex was 28, and still living with his parents. So was his sister. There was nothing at all wrong with them but it just seems to be the done thing in Dublin. I don’t think I could live with my parents for another year, regardless of where I was going to college/where we lived. I just find it weird.
yeah like, i’m lucky enough to get on really well with my family and i love being at home when i’m here, but at the same time i can’t wait to have the independence of being back in dublin. like i’ve only really started learning how to cook proper meals and clean up after myself and do my washing and stuff, but at least i’m doing it. i’ve learned a lot of stuff living away from home this year, from getting WAY too drunk just because i don’t have to go home to my parents afterwards to dealing with landlords and shit like that and even if it sounds stupid, stuff like that is really valuable and i can’t imagine having to wait until i’m like 24 to get to experience that stuff. people say that college is so much more than a degree, which i completely agree with, but i don’t think you get to experience the full extent of what you learn outside college if you’re still living at home. i’m not saying there’s anything wrong with it, because obviously it makes so much sense if you live nearby, but i kind of feel bad for anyone who misses out on that stuff, and anyone who might have to go from living a completely sheltered life to being thrown out into the ‘real world’ and having to be 100% responsible for themselves without any previous experience of it. idk i’m so glad i was able to move away because i know that i’ve changed a lot this year and that i’m a much happier person now because of it and ~living life on my own has definitely had a LOT to do with it.
I live on College during the week and go home on weekends. Pretty much just to have some independence. I have an arrangement to make it affordable though.
