My probationary period for my job is up in 2 months, after that time im gonna move out asap. Basically just want a house share with 2 of my mates. Any stories, advice, pro's and cons about moving out and living on your own? No replies from uni students please who think their all independent and shit living on their own when in fact their just leaching off mummy and daddy and racking up their student loan. Want answers from people living in the real world =P. My major "pro" for doing it is not having to deal with grief, and not having to hide my occasional dabblings in illicit substances.
