I'm going to ask my parents not to get me anything as a graduation gift -- they've done more than their fair share for me.
I'm not really sure if I could live on my own. I'll never really know until I do it. I'd like to think I could, and I know it's really hard, but I'm fairly independent now (as independent as one can be living at home,) and I think I could survive in a dorm environment. And if I couldn't, well, at least I could say I tried.

I could stay with my parents, but the way you state it, it would be like delaying the inevitable. I'm going to have to move out sometime, so why not make it now?

My parents are nice people, and they let me go and leave when I want. The reason I would move out if I chose to isn't really for independence, but more for the experience. Maybe I'm just ready for some big changes in my life?

Tried the PC arena, and I'm tired of it. I've done my research and tried things out, and I know I want a PowerBook. And as stated before, there's no way I'm going to ask for something that big for graduation.
I don't have to make this decision tomorrow or anything, so I'll just wait for some more advice.
