I live with parents, because the (shit) job I have pays too little to enable me to move out.
I want to find a real job - with salary, security, benefits - that will enable me to move out and have my own 'home'. Am I wrong in thinking owning one's own home is a Robot's dream? To have a private space in which you can alone, without anyone to impose on your solitude. You can have your little hobbies, and with no one to question you: you can do as you generally please, and none to inquire as to what you are doing, which is something that bothers me about living at home. Parents either being generally toxic and in their foul mood, or asking "What are you doing?"at anything you do (such as when you make your own meals, or decide to leave at an odd hour because you just want to take a walk).
In short, Robots want 'solitude', and owning a home makes that dream possible
>renting an apartment
You don't have to aim for a $500k house, you know. Then again, I don't know where you live.. Do you live in the U.S.? What state?
If not, what country, fellow Robot?
>not being able to pay a mortgage
You're a Robot, not some norm-form that's going to waste all your money on clubbing and clothes and useless trinkets/
If I had a decent job, I'm fairly sure I'd be able to pay off the mortgage, seeing as I really don't waste on much besides groceries and taxes and cellphone/internet. No need for useless trinkets or shit like cable TV or subscriptions to Netflix or whatever normalfags funnel over half their money into.
I know it's great. I simply hope I'll be able to own one, someday. Ideally, I want some of the older houses in my city, located near downtown (which is generally quiet). They are older houses built with brick and wood. most ranging from being built in the 1920s-1940s.
I can genuinely relate to your dream. Having my own personal private space in order to indulge in solitude and tranquil contemplation is my goal as well. Which I hope to achieve some day. Silent introspection can lead towards enlightening discoveries.

I can understand wanting your own home but, you guys are fucking retarded.
How does paying for a piece of property make you a man?
That's like saying having a 401K or buying a super-car makes you a man.
Perhaps drifters and wanderers such as us can never truly find a "home". No matter where we choose to spend our existence. One needs to simply learn to find peace and meaning wherever they may be.
I live in Aus.
Housing is significantly more expensive here for the same result.
Not saying i dont think i'll ever have a house, or that you wont.
It will just be a lot later down the line.
You don't ever own the property: the space is generally smaller than a house, and also, no backyard/garden space (some Robots have planing/gardening as a hobby, whereas others either have or want to have a dog for a companion). And lastly, neighbors in an apartment can be loud and noisy, causing discomfort for a Robot, whereas if they are loud in their own house, a Robot would be unable to hear them.
We can try, though. Loneliness feels like "home" for some of us, and obtaining a physical and legally-binding space (a house) is what we can try for. No prying eyes, no questions: having a space that we own and which no other can lawfully invade upon.
Odd. I had thought Australia would have relatively cheap housing, considering how much land and space you people have. Or, did you mean Austria?
>posting meme-arrows makes me seem witty and clever
Here's your (You). Don't spend it all in one place.
