This is one for the kids — for those in high school, about to graduate; for those in college, about to be on their own.

I moved away from home at a young age, midway through college. I didn’t come home for summers. Instead, I worked a job to pay my rent and searched for internships. The time was right for me to set out on my own, and I was able to enjoy the privileges of a steady flow of income and a roommate, for cost-sharing.
