The woman admits in a viral TikTok that she does waffle between feeling like she should get her own place, and believing she's "just a baby" chicken who would be "bored" and "lonely" without the company of her parents.

Here's where we start to get a sense of why this TikToker has such a huge following — she's hilarious.

As she explains, why would she move out if she lives rent free, and gets to eat her mom's yummy cooking?

Plus, as she sees it, this is a precious time in her life; it's the last time she'll ever live with her parents because before too long, she'll be married and living in her own place. She then shares that she's currently single, and would be left to "stare at the walls all day" if she had to live alone.

And sure, sometimes the creator wonders if she's "expiring in this house." But then she remembers, "I'm just a chicken! I'm just a baby!"

She's just super entertaining.

Meanwhile, we don't know how the parents feel about their daughter still living at home. But we know how commenters feel.

Clearly this woman has a following of like-minded lovers of living at home.

Apparently living at home until you're almost 30 is the life plan this creator's followers are following, since hundreds of these family-minded folks piled into the comments section of this post to share their own devotion to staying rent-free with the 'rents.

Other commenters who'd moved to the next stage of their lives lamented how living at home was so much better. "I miss my mom's cooking," reminisced one such individual.

Finally, as more and more people shared how they live with their parents as adults, someone called for society to normalize this living arrangement, and maybe we're making headway there.

Healthline reports that 1 in 3 American adults between the ages of 18 and 34 live at home, and the trend of staying under your parents' roof for longer is indeed on the rise.
