You are soooooooooooooooooooooooooo right. As a matter of commonsense you won't have to pay the apartment/lodging rent, gas, electric etc., etc.
Remember when and till the time is tough, until then the tough decisions are needed to survive and conserve, you know that a penny saved is penny earned.
Do not compromise with your health, values, good company, good habits, education, skills and desire to progress by decent and honest means at all! Good luck!
