The only thing my parents are worried about; is me being out late at night.

Which is fair... I mean like, come on..

Although, ever since I hit a lazy spot I haven't left the house in days.

Also I don't think light gaming hinders your study... Excessive gaming does, obviously. But I only play 1-2 games per day. Well, used to
I'm blasted whenever I get anything lower than a B =\

He speaks truth.

But seriously, the internet options here suck. We have the worst internet in the world, lagging behind everybody..

Curse the government, and the NBN not being active in Victoria..

The most affordable life-style I had ever lived on my own was out in a tent in the forest. Granted, this was within city limits of a place that I liked a lot, had free Wi-Fi everywhere, I could shower for free at the locker-room of the nearby community college, laundry wasn't so bad of a trip (even if I had to take a bus or two to get to the laundro-mat), and I kept the amount of stuff I owned down to a minimum so that I wouldn't have to pay up the wazoo for a monthly storage-unit. Used to live in a car (when I had one).

Also, when I lived in my car, I was working full-time assignments every week, consistently, because of how many different employment-agencies I was registered with, whom I could call up every week for a consistent guaranteed assignment, and my work-history was of such a high enough quality that these agencies would also often contact me about working an assignment, rather than me having to call them every time I wanted to work somewhere.

However, I have come to absolutely despise the extortionist government that wants to tax everybody for every thing under the sun, and refuse to fund ANYTHING that is related to potentially causing people to lose their vehicles simply for non-payment of something (despite the fact that they're hard-working people with perfect driving records). Government always using these 3-lettre acronyms to somehow make themselves sound scientific, like DOT, FTC, FCC, GOV, etc., all of which can be summarily summed up as the SUC (Screw-U-Citizen).

Someone told me before : Ur parents want the best for you ! seems like they hassled, but the reality is that they care about you, many people, even if they say, want to have parents who care, but will not tell you, now you're going to college and changed many things, you'll to decide for yourself which is best for you, for now, enjoy the time you have with them, believe me you'll miss them

I live with a family of geniuses, I showed an ability to get straight As when I put in the dedication so my mom threw a fit every time I didn't get an A until I went something like 3 years consecutive without a single one because I didn't do most of the homework.

My life improved a ton as soon as my dad stopped caring.
