David: A little bit better than dorm style.
Diana: We’ve been living with our parents for about a year and half.
Russell: Living with his mom and dad really for me it’s great my mom is a type of mom where she basically does everything for me. My laundry is done, dinner is on the table it feels like a personal concierge.
