I am going to college next year, and I need to get out of this house. My parents (and older brother, who thinks he's my parent) are breathing down my neck all the time; I've been grounded since October because my brother caught me smoking weed and told my mom. My mom thinks I'll spend every day doing drugs and drinking and having sex if I live in a dorm. The college is literally a five-minute drive from my house. I want the college experience, try to be independent. I have a learning disability, and my mom keeps telling me I won't be able to handle living off-campus. But I'll never be able to get out of the cyclical rut I'm in and make friends and have fun if I keep living at home, having to ask my mom's permission if I want to hang out with someone or if I wanna go out to eat. It's three against one, and since I'm a dumb, inexperienced teenager who has "always made the wrong choices," I don't know what to do. (They are not paying for it; however, since my mom is an employee at the college, I get to go there free.) Any advice? Help?
