Learning to live as an adult is hard, but with planning and support, I have an adult life that is right for me." I have tried everything, dorm living, traveling, living alone, with a group, moving back home, and now starting a new family home.  At different times different situations have worked for me." "I had to decide what I really wanted and aim for that.  I am not there yet but I am still young." I had a lot to learn before I could really live on my own, setting up utilities, signing a lease, buying insurance, making a system to keep things clean, talking to my housemates about what the house rules are, all of these things are tricky, but useful.
