Plus, my friend desperately needed a place so I thought it was a good opportunity to give him mine so I could move back home for about a month until I find a permanent place.
And I literally just moved back in with my parents yesterday, but I won't be here too long anyway.
Btw, I graduated from college last month, so cut me some slack! I haven't had much time to be financially independent anyway.
