Which decision is the best? Plan 1 or 2? I need advice what do you guys have in mind?
Im currently in college to continue taking my general ed classes
I work as a cashier at a small grocery store (3 stores family owned) I get paid $9.50 an hour
I plan to move out of state in 2014 mid year or at the end of that year!

Im 21 now, and I live with my strict Christian parents who are actually in a cult (2 guesses what religion) They knock on your doors in the morning!
Anyways I came out of the closet in high school to my parents, they didnt take it well even though they said they've always knew. Then again its not surprising living with a African American family.
The only reason why Im living here is because I can save money so I can move out, I have $6,000 saved up I can move out now if I want, but my money wont last.
Im not really trying to establish a relationship with my parents because they have to shun me or at least not have any contact unless an emergency, because I dont want any part of the religion. Thats the rules they call it disfellowshipping. Anyways enough ranting I just want to let you guys know what situation I'm in.

What plan is more realistic plan 1 or 2?
Plan #1 Complete all my general core classes and work at the same time and save every dime until I finish the classes. As well looking for a LGBT roommate or LGBT friendly roommate. Out of the state and transfer to a accredited community college for a Ultrasound Technician. As well as planning to work a part time job, and to finally live my life the way I want it to be


Plan #2 Should I remain at home with my parents taking general core classes and then find a community college in Georgia (my state) for Sonography while still living at home or just right now find a community college here at look for a Sonography Associates Degree while living in my parents home.

If the more wise decision is to continue living with my parents I HAVE to be out by the year 2015 for my sanity.

Takea look at tis site, you might be able to take some core classes & get credits free. I am not completely sure how this works, but if you have the time, check it out. If you get those out of the way, you can dive right in to the specialized classes you want.

Are your parents supporting you financially? Are you living there free? Look for a roommate, you never know. At least you'd make some new friends, maybe.

OP you might try posting this in the relationship threads. Probably get more responses there and a variety of answers.

Or the parenting thread, to give that poor kid in target a break.

But seriously, get the hell out and don't look back is my advice. You already have more savings than 99% of us do.

If you move to another state, you'll be charged out-of-state tuition until you establish residency. That could take a year or more.

Which plan is best depends on how much you can tolerate your parents' shunning you. If I were in your shoes, I would think that would be an advantage. At least they aren't all over you - or are they?

If you really, truly feel like you need to get out of their home, then it seems to me that plan #1 with the difference that you stay in state would best fill that need.

As long as you can handle living with your parents, I would do that.

My reason?

They failed at being supportive, loving parents, least they can do is fund your education.
