    This is depressing news.. it's extremely hard to find a decent paying job, even with a degree

    I got a job 2 months out of school and at a rate that is higher than the average for my field.

    Marketable skills and a personality, that's literally all you need.

    Sounds like people need to get better personalities.

    It's funny that real estate folks use that to advertise "pent up housing demand" what they dont' know is that many of these guys are perfectly happy spending their lives in their mom's basements. It's a new breed of sissified "men".

    i usually agree with your posts, but not this time. I would much rather have a shitty apartment than live with mommy and daddy (im 28)

    Not a chance, I moved out of my parents' home on minimum wage when I was 18 and I don't regret it in the slightest.

    Your manliness is too much for this forum.

    hi WorldofWarcraft,

    yes, it is depressing, very much so. the only upside is the strengthening of familial bonds as Americans pull together to weather the storm.

    From an economical perspective, it's smarter to live at home.

    The idea that people should simply move out on their own just because they've reached a certain age is definitely something that should be re-examined.

    if you are single, the best system is one where you alternate between your own home and your parents' home at will. you get the best of both choices.
