    I am 18 and starting uni soon. During Alevels, I thought going to uni would be the perfect excuse to finally move out, but unfortunately due to being rejected by unis, I am now going to uni in my town. So basically I'm gonna be living with my parents.
    I'm Asian so my parents are strict as hell. I couldn't go to prom, they raise their eyebrows when I want to go out with friends, I always have to wear what THEY want and so on.
    But now I want things to change, I want to let them know those oppressing values don't work on me. When I join uni, I want to change and rebel.

    My other relatives are pretty chilled out so if my parents start to complain too much about the new me, I'm just gonna tell about their forceful attitude to my relatives and they will do something about it.

    But how can I start?

    Edit: I am a girl thought I'd say... some were suggesting to get a gf

    Depending on how far away from the uni you are and how much pocket money you've got saved up; move out anyway. Part time work'll help your rent and then you'll realise that you were better off the way things were.

    Why limit yourself to just one person though, double the fun! =D
    Or, why not go further?

    Bring them back to the house first though, just to be polite.

    Just imagine like a family dinner or something and OPs sitting there with all these partners and the parents are fully fuming at their rebellious child xD

    and the noise in the bedroom would really grind their gears too

    Don't be an idiot and rebel. Have an honest conversation with them like an adult without getting heated, explain things from your point of view and if they don't listen or refuse to listen then tell them you're moving out.
    This is coming from a person with equally strict parents of S.Asian decent.

    rebellion for the sake of it is just childish - you're 18 so start acting like an adult. You don't have to wear what your parents tell you if you don't want to but you are living, presumably rent free, in their home and should show them some courtesy. If you ever move out and live in a flat with other people you will learn to make compromises. If you have a good reason or reasons to want to do something they disapprove of then discuss those reasons with them like an adult instead of being a spoilt brat.
