    Ok so I'm currently in first year and I'm still living at home (my uni is in my home town and I'm closer to the uni than some of the halls) and at the start of the year I was sooooo ready to move out in second year but as the time is getting closer and I'm having to make a decision I'm starting to change my mind, I have a group that I can move out with and they're lovely but I'm just not sure and the thoughts are keeping me up at night. I took out a student loan this year and it's gone straight into my savings and I've also got a job but I still have money worries. I'm just so used to having my parents look after me (I'm an only child) I just don't know what to do... Staying at home would be the preferred option right now but what if I regret it when second year starts? I don't go on nights out regularly so the "social aspect" isn't a problem

    If you're happy at home then I'd stay there and save the money.

    If you'll be happier at home then stay at home.
    But I wouldn't advise staying in the mindset of being used to having your parents look after you. You're an adult and you're going to have to learn to take care of yourself eventually. If you're still allowing your parents to do everything for you and you're not independent you should at least try to change that, but that does not necessarily mean you have to move out.
