A House Is Not A Home  
I've only been at my parents' house for a few months and already I'm about to lose it with them.  In all likelihood it will be years before I get out of this state, and until then I really have no place to go.  I simply cannot live here for years, yet I also cannot afford an apartment.  But I have a solution.  I have no idea how to convince my parents to do this, but it's the only way.  What I want to do is make the playroom into a studio apartment of sorts.  Wall it off from the house and put an entrance where the back window is.  There's plenty of room in the yard for a staircase.  I'd be willing to pay rent for it.  The only downside is it doesn't have a bathroom, but I could always come into the house if I needed to.  But other than that I would live in here.  It wouldn't be that hard really.  It's over the garage so it would be easy to wall off from the house, and they'd just have to made the window into a door and build a staircase.  Really not that big a project.  I wish there was a way to incorporate the bathroom to my dad's room; he uses the one in my mother's room.  Maybe there is a way.  It's right next to the playroom.  So, make that bathroom and this room into an apartment.  I honestly think it's the only way I can be here.  I'm going to attempt to convince my parents of this.... and I am not letting up.
