Poll: How many times have you moved in your lifetime?

Never...I've lived in the same place always 8 (12%)
1-3 times. I don't like to uproot myself often. 18 (28%)
4-10 times. I like to try new things and bounce around. 22 (34%)
10-20 times. I or my family move all the damn time. 9 (14%)
More times than I can count. What's a root? 1 (2%)
I try to move at least once daily. It keeps the bedsores at bay. 7 (11%)

I don't think it is over 20 as I quickly count in my head. I may have left something out. My theory - if you move every 5 years then you never have to wash windows.

Hee- I am glad you posted here mom, because I was trying to count and it made my head hurt. I don't think it is over 20 for me either, though there were all those apartments... way over 10 in any case.

As you can see, my family likes to move. We just like it.

If you've gone to college, that almost guarantees, like 5-10 moves right there. The rest of the moves are just icing.

Not necessarily. If you go to college in your hometown because you can't afford going away, you don't move. My first choice school, had I stayed, I would have a loan the size of a mortgage in 1993 (after 4 years) which would equal a nice house in the Town of Amherst, NY. I was prepared to put myself that much into debt once common sense kicked in.

Now if some Navy/Army brats posted here, we would have many moves which none of us could top. :)

That should be "wasn't" prepared.

Can't proofread yet - only two cups o'coffee today. ;)

That's for damn sure. I moved at least 8 times during college. Of course I went for like 12 years...

Really? I've been to two colleges since 1990. That's not including my initial choice which I withdrew from (NYU) in 1989.

First and Second Bachelor of Science 1995 and 1996 my hometown and state school.

Working on another degree to get me out of this hellhole which is still in my hometown. The school that is offering the degree is one of two in the country - both located in New York State. The one in Hamburg is a private college and cheaper than Utica private college.

yeah - I had to list where I lived for the previous 10 years for a job - I needed 2 extra sheets. Luckily I'm a compulsive record keeper - I had 10 year old phone bills to refer to.

I spent the first 18 years of my life in the same city, in the same house...I moved to Baltimore for college...4 years, 4 dorm rooms and 1 house later, I moved back home...then once I got a job, I moved back to Baltimore. I've been here 2 years now and I'm looking desperately for a new job so I can make the biggest move of my life out to Chicago.
