I'd be willing to bet that you might want to take advantage of it a little and stay there, say, a year more than you would have otherwise, but that you'd eventually get bored with hanging around and not "doing something of your life" (I don't know how to express this in a way that sounds positive ;).

        I could've stayed there. In fact, young as I am I could still be there, probably doing a thesis or something like that. But the fact that it costing so little having encouraged me to "test things" outside the scope of university I quickly wanted to test more and eventually left. Of course, today I'm broke as my company went bust but who knows, tomorrow will probably bring a better day and whatever comes of it I certainly won't regret having had the time to experiment pretty much all over the map ;)
