What is your relationship status? If you’re looking for a girlfriend then I’d say move out, it’d be much easier. If you’re not looking then stay home.

Ah in that case, I’d definitely recommend staying at home. You can enjoy this time with your parents, save $$, and visit your GF whenever you get bored and want the city life!

Your career is important too. So either move out or find a space where you can work (small office rental space) during the day. You'll not have to pay the full rent of an apartment and at the same time not worry about impact to work.

Get an apartment and a roommate in DC. If you want to continue saving money, make do with additional distractions.

Stay at home till the year end and then live out … if your parents don’t mind and you enjoy being with siblings family. You will have rest of your life to live by yourself

I’m surprised all the answers are move out. Is it just to avoid distractions or other reasons also? Thanks!

Based off my experience, it's great to get some personal space and enjoy life. You learn so much from being on your own. Moving out and maybe a new city, new opportunities and experiences. Plus you aren't that young where you need to be living with parents, can still save some, plus no distraction and mandatory baby sitting

How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn.
