    Inspired by the "where would you like to live" thread, I'm wondering... where *have* you lived?

    As a theatrical producer and business manager, working on the 'next big project' has meant relocating several times for me. In order...

    Kansas City, Missouri (18 years)
    New York, NY (6 years)
    Atlanta, GA (2 years)
    Washington, DC (2 years)
    San Francisco Bay Area (4 years and counting)

    Has anyone moved more than that? Has anyone never moved at all?

    Ewa Beach, HI - 5yrs
    Flora, IN - 4mo
    Langley, WA - 12.5yrs
    Flint, MI and Langley, WA - 1.5yrs
    Flint, MI and Hillsboro, OR - .5

    Thats not counting the several weeks we spent in different places between Ewa Beach and Flora.

    The Last two are because my college program runs on a three month schedule. Where you go to school for 3 months, and you are supposed to have a co-op job durring your 3 months off. I didn't have a co-op for my first 3 school terms, therefore I lived at home, then in Janurary I moved to Hillsboro to work at my co-op.

    If you add up my years above, you'll be pretty close to my age (I'll be 20 at the end of August)
