Dad doesn't want me to move out next semester?
So I know my dad loves me a lot. When we argue, he always says that he can't wait for me to move out because he's getting tired of me complaining because I don't know how good I have it. I am a freshman in college right now. Since I don't have a car, my dad drives me back and forth to my school which is 30 mins away from our house. We only have two cars, so me using it while at school is not an option. I like it there, but it can be kind of boring. I can't go to the football games or anything, because I haven't really met anyone to go with. It's basically, go to school, go home, study. I've met a few people, but I haven't really hung out w them or anything. I don't have class Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I sit at home on those days and study. I do have a Saturday class though. When I told my dad I wanted to live there, he goes "Oh your sophomore year?" And I said, "No, the 2nd semester after my freshman year." And he's like, "Oh, it's because you want your independence right? How are you going to manage living on your own without your mom and I on you about studying all the time? How are you going to afford it? Plus, I'll miss you. I'll cry every day." I try to tell him it's because of convenience. Honestly, I feel kind of selfish that my dad is driving me to school when he could be sleeping (he's a cop and works nights). He says he doesn't mind, but I can tell he's tired! I told my mom what he said, and she said he just doesn't want me to leave home. It's not far at all so we could still see each other every weekend! I just want to make more friends at school. I think living there would be better for me to get to know people. I could actually go to the school sponsored events. I won't stop studying for friends, but I do want to make more friends and meet more people, and commuting all four years isn't going to cut it for me! Help?
