It’s almost every child’s dream to move out of their parent’s house. I have this sudden ferocious motivation to reach that exact goal. Many people I know want to move away but it’s just an empty thought for some people because they aren’t being realistic. Where are you going on your own when you do not know how to cook or clean? That’s just a disaster waiting to happen. I guess all of the babysitting I’ve done for my mom will pay off because I am capable of maintaining a living space, it would be even less work without dependents. The only real issue that I find is finances. I need a decent income and to relieve some responsibility, I would need a responsible roommate.  I usually set goal one day but then I tend to forget them as the day progressing, so I proposed this solution for myself so that I won’t lose track. My friend and I agreed to write down our goals so that we can visually see what needs to be done and post it in our room somewhere so that we could see it each day and be reminded of what we want to accomplish. On the outside looking in, it’s great that we are able to think optimistically and strategize, but how realistic are we really? I do know that it is possible so I might as well continue looking ahead.
