The less you eat, drink and buy books; the less you go to the theatre, the dance hall, the public house; the less you think, love, theorise, sing, paint, fence, etc., the more you save – the greater becomes your treasure which neither moths nor rust will devour – your capital. The less you are, the less you express your own life, the more you have, i.e., the greater is your alienated life, the greater is the store of your estranged being.

can you give any advice for an 18yr who wants to move out of their parents home. i've always liked the idea of living on my own but i have no idea where to start...


I’d suggest you earn as much money as possible rent free while you have the chance.  I worked nonstop throughout high school, even while playing sports.  It felt good having money tucked away where I didn’t need to take a loan out for a car when I could buy a used one on the cheap.

If you decide to move out of your parents’ house, I’d be damn sure you have a good job with lots of savings just in case that job falls through.  I’d also suggest finding a roommate and living as cheaply as possible so you continue to save money.  I’m not sure if you’re choosing to go to college, but that’s another expense you’ll have to figure out.  As long as you keep your nose clean and spend your money wisely and frugally, living on your own is as simple as living with your parents…except now you are taking on a lot more personal responsibility.

Welcome to adulthood.  The freedom and responsibility is as liberating as it is burdensome.
