I had to move back into my parents’ basement recently and the whole thing is just so embarrassing to me. I really thought that I was going to be able to move out into my own place and support myself like a real adult, but a lot of things have gone wrong over the past year. I got sick at one point and I had to miss a lot of work. That ended up culminating in my losing out on a promotion that I was really supposed to get. That meant that I didn’t start to make as much money as I was planning on making and everything went downhill from there. I had car repairs that I had to pay for and then my HVAC system tore up and I had to pay a fortune to get that fixed. It was just one thing after another for me and I had no luck but bad luck all year long. Finally, after three months of struggling, I ended up getting kicked out of my place and I had no choice but to go and move back in with my parents! My siblings made so much fun of me that it was just a nightmare. Moving my stuff back in at my parents’ house after such a colossal failure was really discouraging and disheartening, that’s for sure. The worst part about it was the fact that they had already turned my room into their home gym and I had to move into the basement! The basement doesn’t even have a heating and cooling system in it, though. I’m going to have to pay to get a ductless mini split heating and cooling system installed down there in order to have proper indoor air quality.
