Going to university and not coming back home watch


    Well, it depends how poor I am (most probably very) at the end of it all, and whether I remember how much I hate living here right now. Also what opportunities there are for me, whether I have a job, loads of things that I won't know until then

    I plan to spend as little time as possible living at home, if that counts? I'll probably only come back for a week or so at Christmas and Easter, and hopefully the same during the summer. So maybe four weeks a year, if that.

    I love my family, but I get on with them much better when I don't live in the same house as them for extended periods of time. And it's pretty boring being at home, because there's nothing to do around here except work full time. My friends at home are really crap, so I'd much rather be doing something else. Even being alone in London all holidays beats being at home alone.

    Well i'm not going to run off start a new life, get a new name ect.

    I hope to never LIVE at home again.

    I'm hoping to get a 42 week contract on my accommodation. i'll go home for a week or two at christmas, and for a few weeks in summer but after that not really.

    Wouldn't you miss home?

    Not really, i've spent weeks at home on my own, being apart from my mum has never bothered me, as long as i have dollar to feed myself i'm fine.

    Even if other people go home in holidays, my uni will(hopefully) be 7 hrs away on train.

    I can barely stand a 1hr train ride so i wouldn't hop on the train home for anything less than 2 weeks.

    And i know i wouldn't study for exams at home.

    Why do OP want to cut off your ties to your family, i wish i got to see my Whole family more!
Were you ever put in isolation at school?
