I'm 19 turning 20 soon, I still live at home still go to college still reliant on parents. Im completely aware that’s not the worst but I feel like I need to change as people my age are doing better than me I’m just worried by the time I'm doing better everyone else will still be ahead of me. I don’t have the money to move out but I'm going to go college maybe 1 more year and get a better job then save for a mortgage. Im currently saving up for a car for when I pass my test, I couldn't haven't passed yet due to covid delaying tests. I shouldn’t be at college at this age, I had an addiction to gta when I was 16 so didn't go college or nothing for a year. I just feel like I should be working full time or be at uni by now. I don't have girlfriend and never have. I don't have much skills either like I can't cook yet, I can't drive and I feel like all I have is a crush on women.

I just want sort myself out but worry I will be too slow. I go to college which I hate and have a small job which Id rather not say but it’s not enough to get me house.
My lifestyle is like is like my little nephews and he's only 15. If I could move out I would literally do it like that but its not that simple. Just want to be able to change immediately but it's not that simple. Moving out is expensive like, rent or mortgage or buying the property, water, electricity, gas, fuel for a car, mot, tax and I heard about council tax on a house you have to pay which is expensive.

Jesus. You're 19. You'll be 20 and go to university. Post-university (24ish), you'll have a graduate job that pays £25k (roughly) and then you'll work your way up the career ladder.

I can assure you, you're not buying a house anytime soon but you can rent once you have a job that pays you more than a pittance that you do part-time with college.

Then I hope you are studying a good trade at college.

Perhaps, you could get a girlfriend or learn to cook, if you applied yourself in life. By applying yourself, you'll succeed. Or not, sounds like you enjoy complaining rather than making sure you succeed.
