I live with my mom but I can't wait to move out though...The only problem is finding a good full time that can support me and be able to pay loans and bills. Two PT job doesn't do justice but it's better than no job.

Tough economic times . . . I know one young man (28) who moved back in with his mom because his mom lost her job. He has a job - and he is helping her pay the bills so she won't lose her house til she can get another job. So it isn't always that young adults move back b/c they can't find a job; some move back to help their parents while the parents are out of work.
