Yes this year marks my 10th year of living on my own. I was just in my early 20s at the time and decided to finally leave my parents home. I still called their home “home” because my stuff was still there, but I was gone. I started in the middle of 99 staying off and on with a few friends, going to school(college), working, etc. and going “home” to visit for a couple of days. It was not until around early 2000 when I moved out for good. Meaning My stuff, and I were gone from my parents home for good. Then I would only go back “home” to be an overnight guest, go for dinner, or to just stop by to visit.
Wow, lot has changed since those 10 years has passed too. Just feels like yesterday actually. Time flies by so quick sometimes.
