Finally moving out-brain overloaded
Without going into details, I'll just say I saved up enough money and will be buying a small home in town next Friday. I'm paying in cash, so at least I don't have to worry about a mortgage. Anyway, I know no one ever said this was going to be easy, but I'm about to have an assload of things piled on top of me to deal with in order to get settled in. . I'll need to go downtown to get registered to get billed for the utilities. I'll need to get the gas oven installed, as well as the internet. Also, home owner's insurance. I'll have to go to the post office to get my mailbox key, rent a uhaul to get all of my stuff over. I'm sure I missed a few things. I've never had to deal with so much crap at once. I have to go to the bank to get a cashier's check in order to pay for the house to begin with. This is going to involve lots of phone calls and talking to people in person. I don't even have a cell phone.
I know I can do it. I'm very nervous, but I won't let that stop me anymore. I should be thrilled, I'm finally moving out of my Mom's house. I've never lived alone before, so it's going to freak me out for a while. I don't know if my brain can take all of this. I'm plagued by worries. I'm ashamed that my Mom is going to help me with so many things, but I can't do these things alone.
Does anyone out there who lives independently have any advice for someone who is finally starting to get out on their own? Did you feel as freaked out and nervous as I do now? I want to know that the way I feel is normal, and that I'm not some stupid manchild who is getting in way over his head. Right now I'm trying to compose a list of priorities to be taken care of.
