    THIS! If you think there is only a possibility you can care for one I wouldn't even be thinking about it. Not until you are certain your circumstances won't change which renting and working as a casual you can never be certain that they won't. Your roster can change so suddenly, that would have me worried.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Maybe you should get your finances sorted out a bit first. I do know that homeless people manage to keep dogs but that's not ideal.

    When you've got a 6 month emergency fund that would cover all your living expenses including food and rent, then you have quite a bit more security. Then save some more for puppy expenses and things like rent bond and the first few months of living expenses to give yourself some flexibility if you have to move in a hurry.

    And I don't think I'd rent with anyone who doesn't have some sort of agreement in writing unless I could move home at a moment's notice it all went pear shaped.

    It costs a lot more to go to work than it does to stay at home and go to school. Things you didn't expect, like transport, lunch, utility bills, rent bond, nice clothes for work etc.

    I'm signing a rental agreement, so no stress about the paper work.

    I also left home almost 6 years ago Haha. I moved states and I've been renting for those past 6 or so years. Graduated Uni at the end of March this year. I'm aware of all the expenses too
