    Hey everybody, I have a pretty big dilemma. I have just finished a 2 year course in electrical engineering and I would not like to continue. As I am working, I wanted to move out of my parents home and pay rent for a shared house (I just want my own space). However that would lead to me being in a dead end job and paying for this shared house for years to come! I want to study IT and move out at the same time, problem is that I won't be able to move out and I'll be at home for another 2 years. At my age (18) I just want to be independent and not stay at my parents home (too much pressure)! So what should I do... Put up with hell in my house for another 2 years? Or move out and work the full time job I have now which could lead to being manager?
