  • *LIT DOMICS INTRO*

  • Dom: I finally moved out last summer

  • Guy: Wait a minute Dom 20...2017, 2016 so you were.. 25 when you moved out??

  • Dom: Yeah, I'm sorry. I couldn't move out in college, okay?I was broke, my parents were like

  • Momma Dom: "Oh? you want to move out, huh? No, that's too expensive."

  • You could just commute two hours both ways ebrey (every) day.

  • Dom: WHAT?! EVERY DAY?!

  • Momma Dom: Yes.

  • Dom: But that's like four hours every day?!

  • SCARY PHILIPINO MOMMA: EBURI DE (EVERY DAY)

  • Dom: And yeah, They were right.

  • On average, a decent apartment downtown was about $550 to $600 a month.

  • A Go Bus monthly pass was about $80.

  • I mean yeah, I saved a couple hundred dollars a month.

  • But waking up at 5:00 a.m., just to make sure I'm in time for an 8:00 a.m.

  • class that I fall asleep in because I only got three hours of rest....

  • Not really worth it in my opinion.

  • And that is why you should try to make friends in college. (Unlike Dom)

  • Because one of them is bound to have a place you can crash at when you have to build a 1 to 20 scale model

  • of your architectural design and don't want to risk some random dude on the bus

  • OBLITERATING IT because he didn't realize that his backpack was also a wrecking ball.

  • Bird Dom: Anyway, I left the nest. Pretty big milestone in my life.

  • I really didn't have an emergency to move,

  • I mean, some people really want their independence early,

  • and some people want to save money by staying with their parents,

  • some people simply get kicked out.

  • I won't judge. Living away can be pretty expensive.

  • I was comfortable at home, but I knew I was capable of taking care of myself.

  • I just thought it was finally time. (to leave my poor parents alone)

  • My parents really pushed for not moving out and having to rent a place.

  • But to just save up and put a good downpayment to actually own one.

  • And I'm pretty glad I saved up and waited.

  • However I think the move wasn't as dramatic as it should have been,

  • since my place is only like a 20 minute drive from my parents.

  • But I still have my freedom.

  • The actual move itself, though, was a pain.

  • I like to think I didn't own that much,

  • but you really don't know how much you actually have

  • until you try to Tetris it into a U-Haul truck.

  • The place I picked out is a pretty nice condo

  • with a downtown area of my

  • suburban city.

  • I went through a good amount of listings before deciding because a lot didn't have the right room layout

  • I wanted some didn't allow pets some had an amazing view of the dumpsters in the alley (wow, Dom.)

  • I know many people are pretty restricted when it comes to choosing a place, but this was my first owned home.

  • I saved up.$$$

  • Imma get what I want! The previous owner, we'll call him dude WHAT THE HELL, renovated the place before selling it,

  • so it pretty much looked like an IKEA model house.

  • And I know this because when I went to Ikea to shop for furniture. I noticed some decorations and shelves that dude WHAT THE HELL left behind when he moved out, but speaking of shelves?

  • I don't think DUDE WHAT THE HELL knew how to assemble and mount the shelves or at least whoever he hired didn't.

  • There was the shelf in the bedroom that I specifically asked DUDE WHAT THE HELL to dismount before the closing date.

  • It looked nice with the furniture he had, but I knew it wouldn't match mine,

  • but when I moved in what do I find? THE DAMN SHELVES!

  • I was already kind of annoyed by DUDE WHAT THE HELL because he extended the closing date of the condo and was already late with moving out.

  • So I just decided to make the best of it and just use the shelf until I decided to dismount it myself

  • One day,

  • I decided to put a paper flower basket on top of the shelf and then in the middle of the night while I was sleeping,

  • I just hear this loud THUD that woke me up in a slight panic

  • I find the basket and one of the shelf pieces on the floor. I was too tired to deal with it, so I went back to bed

  • Totally could have been a murderer that knocked it over, but Nala (dog) wasn't barking at anything

  • so I trusted that I was safe. The next day I try to figure out why it fell I discovered that the shelf piece...

  • wasn't even nailed or screwed on to the support piece that was attached to the wall. In fact it was simply glued on

  • judging by the ripped paint and no screw holes. So I decided to press lightly on the other shelf piece that was still attached.

  • Didn't stay that way very long. The piece became loose as well and eventually detached so I was left with this support piece that just

  • looked like a total eyesore. I decided screw the shelf!

  • Figuratively, I want it gone. I tried looking for screw holes to figure out how I could dismount this off the wall;

  • I couldn't find any. Tried to pull the piece off the wall...

  • and then I realized, the whole thing was glued on! So I was left with this dumb ass block of wood

  • stuck on the wall because I didn't want to ruin the paint and drywall underneath it. A couple of days later

  • I go to Ikea to look for a desk. Passed by the shelving area and Lo and Behold

  • I discovered the same damn shelf DUDE WHAT THE HELL installed on the wall

  • Or should I say the same two shelves apparently the pieces that were assembled together

  • don't even belong to the same build. The smaller pieces are meant to be hooked onto screws in a wall

  • and the big piece is supposed to be mounted onto a protruding bracket that inserts into it.

  • Dude, what the hell!?! You'd think that the moment you took out the glue you should have realized that something was off and that you

  • have veered away from the instructions intended for the shelf!

  • I got a hunch that they actually knew how it was meant to be done

  • but were just too lazy to drill because later on I decided to mount a TV on the same wall in my room, and

  • the wall is Concrete, and I don't know if you guys ever tried drilling into concrete, but it can be really annoying and yes

  • I used a hammer drill with a proper drill bit so I think whoever mounted the shelf just couldn't be bothered with drilling and just

  • decided to glue it on. Definetly can't do that with a TV. Nevertheless

  • I do like my place overall. Great view of the city, convenient distance to nearby shops and my neighbours are

  • ...great? I know that's a lie, my neighbours aren't the most desirable of people, one specifically has caused my roommates

  • and I much trouble but that's a story for another day.

  • Might be a little bit inappropriate, but I'll tell you guys about it sometime.

  • Far Away Dom: My neighbour's a prostitute

  • My advice is you don't really have to rush trying to move out. Unless it's really

  • toxic at home, and you really need to get away from your family,

  • or you murdered someone *BEEP* or you have work or school obligations

  • that would be more beneficial if you moved out, but if your parents will let you stay home

  • *lip smack* save your rent money! Enjoy the homemade cooking while you still can.

  • Not going to lie. This was really just a complain about the glued shelf.
