TQC, I need parent-relationship help.

So I'm planning on making a pretty major move in the next two months (we're talking moving from the NYC-Metro area to North Carolina, where I went to school). And my dad (whom I live with) was all for it until I actually started making plans to *do* the moving. Now he's like "Find a job in NYC!" and "you shouldn't take a job that offers less than twenty dollars an hour!" and I'm like, "Dad. It's loads more expensive to live around NYC, and I can't name a single person in my circle of similarly-aged friends and contacts who makes better than fifteen an hour." Is my dad being ridiculous? What's his deal (besides the obvious letting-go factor)? How much do you make, and what're your average expenses per month? I think I *could* conceivably make it on two grand a month (which is about what I'm making at my current job). What do you think?
