When should I move?

okay so, I'm only 14. I'm going to this modeling and acting school and I get bookings. I really want to move out of my parents house at an early age. Don't get me wrong I love my parents but I need this. I know I'm young but, should I save my paychecks up to get my own place? I have all A's in school and I have a car (I just need my license lol) I know you may think I'm moving fast and planning my future too much right now but I want this. My plan is to wait until I turn 17(I'll still be In my modeling with a aside job) and then I'll get a place with my boyfriend once he turns 18 5 months later. (we've been together for 2 years. For those of you who are going to judge don't answer this question. I only want positive feedback) what do you suggest? should I move into an apartment type place or a Mobil home or house? I need help lol.

In my opinion modeling is not a good future to run for .It is unstable job,stressful, and you may end addicted to drugs.Besides, who ensure that you'll stay in relationship with ur current bf!! I know you want a + answer, but I can't find one!!Sry,bestluck.

Well, I've been in modeling ever since I was little. I know about things. Getting hooked into drugs are horrible and actually quite irrelevant. Lol I have a pretty good saving.

Uhh, hon until YOU turn 18 I'm pretty sure it's still up to your parents whether you move out or not. That's not judging, it's just the law.

If you're really that determined, I suggest town house or duplex. Less expensive than a single home but you still get more of a house, less apartment feel. But really your budget is what's going to determine that. Can you afford a rental unit with just a side job? I doubt it, they are EXPENSIVE.

Now, it IS good to save your paychecks. Build yourself a nice nest egg. But don't spend money you don't yet have.

Lol I appreciate your honesty. I know turning 18 is a huge factor in this. I also know that things are expensive. Modeling is my job, it's what I do and what I get paid for, I get a lot of money modeling so I wanted to save. I also get paid very often. I only said side job to save up for rainy day expenses, and house hold items, etc. I pay for my own phone bill every month along with other things. Thanks for your opinion, it's greatly appreciated.

Unless you have been legally emancipated ... I wouldn't move out until you're 17. Mainly because you still HAVE TO have your parents on your bank accounts, or any other legal contract you enter in to.

i say move out but not with your boyfriend just yet , i think you should have him over a lot too see if youd want him there or you might want to be alone. Also Youre going to have to be able to pay bills and buy things for your home ! so i say move out only if youre ready

Save as much money as you can while you don't have any bills to pay. If you don't already have a college in mind you may want to start that process. A solid education will give you a good foundation to build your life on. Keep in mind you are going to change A LOT in the next 10 years, more than you can imagine right now. Girls go through a pretty big maturity growth spurt between 20-23 and suddenly you don't see your world the same. It's not a bad thing, just know it will happen and its wise to not make life lasting choices before that, as in marriage/kids. There's nothing wrong with having a vision of where you want to go in life, just continue to be wise about it. Remember also, if you feel impulsive, that's a good time to take a deep breath and delay a decision. Good luck to you!

Get an apartment. It is easy to move in easy to move out later if you need to go some place else and you will probably need to. Of course, as you know, until you turn 18 you will still be legally bound to your parents so they should be behind you about all of this.
I don't think you can live with your boyfriend if he is 18 or older and you are younger. You need to be both younger or both older. So be careful about that. But did you mean that he is turning 18 five months from now or five months after you turn 17?
Don't mind that people trying to change your mind. If you feel like this is an experience that you need to go through so do it. You are not abandoning your parents and if your parents love you they will be there anyway. But please, later if you feel like living on your own doesn't working for you don't hesitate to move back to your parents. You are at an age to experiment new things and there is always a chance that things don't go as you think. Well, I don't know how it is exactly at your age these days but older people tend to stick with their mistakes, which makes everything worse of course so just be open to everything. Don't close doors. You'll be fine.
Best of luck.
