After University spent a year and a half living at home finishing up my thesis film, touring around with it a bit at festivals, and then submitting endless work applications. Didn't help that I'm from the SF Bay Area where it's unreasonably expensive and most of friends still there live with parents even if they're working full-time. Just after turning 24, finally got hired by a Canadian studio so I emigrated and probably won't be back for a while, if ever.
It was tough to move so far with nothing but the independence has been worth the trouble. Love my family but it was hard not to feel like I was stagnating living at home for so long.
