You have to do whats best for you. Congratulations on graduating with your associates! That is a big accomplishment. I am just super school crazy so I fully support going to as much school as possible, but I understand that not everyone is like me at all – so you have to do what is good for you. It sounds like you have a pretty sound and well thought out plan which is a fantastic start.

I think that you’re engaged and you mom doesn’t really have the control on where you move and when… I think also no matter what even if you do move back and she currently “doesn’t support” it, she will just enjoy having you around. Another thought, though, is if you were living with your mom would you save more money? Just consider some financials if you’re saving up for a wedding or home purchasing with FI! But it’s an exciting time for you!! Congrats ๐Ÿ™‚

ashhecker:  I think getting a job at a pharmacy that will probably pay for your training and certification would be your best route. I was a pharm tech for years and got my first job without having a certification. within one year I had my certification paid for by the company. On the other hand, I know MANY people who have paid for the course and are unable to find pharmacy jobs even with the certification.

I agree with PP about getting a job that will pay for the Cert.  As far as the living with parents goes….You will spend the rest of your Life with your Fiance.  Waiting one more year to move in isn’t that big of a deal. You can really spend the last year with your parents making good memories and enjoy saving money.   If you want to get settled you can always plan weekend trips to decorate and set things up adn look for employment that is close to your Fi.

Getting ready for apartment life takes a while anyway. You don’t want to scramble to buy new furniture right before move-in. While you’re living at home, watch sales, secondhand shop, start gathering items. Then by the time you move in, you’ll have saved oodles of money, you can take all the stuff at once instead of worrying about a bunch of deliveries, and the place will feel more “you” from your collection and less “first apartment.” This is a special time for you and your parents to bond as you go into adulthood, and you’ll have the rest of your life with Fiance. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also if you and Fiance don’t keep a budget, you’ll want to start now so you’ll be prepared.
