Where were you born to where you live now. I know a lot of people who were born in the same town they grew up in and never moved once. I tend to differ. I was born just outside of San Fransisco, and now I live in Southern Wisconsin. Kinda weird, Cal-Wis, but thats the way it is.

I was born in Vineland, New Jersey (in south Jersey, near Wildwood :) :) :) ), and my parents and I moved to Florida when I was small. I went to a private school until thrid grade and I only was in school for about 6 months out of the year, so the other 6 months we stayed in Jersey. So most of my childhood was half and half. I am still in Florida.

Born and raised in northern Michigan (a town of about 7,000), moved to central Florida for the first year of college, transferred back to southwestern Michigan when I changed my major, and finally to northeastern Florida for my final 3 semesters (internship) and that's where I am now, with plans to move back north once again if we can manage it. But this time I've made up my mind! :D

I was born in Phoenix, AZ, and moved to Kayenta, AZ, shortly after. If you've been around these boards and pay attention to things I say, then you should know that Kayenta is a small town on the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona. It's about 30 miles south of Utah, so I traveled about 300-something miles from my birthplace to hometown. Now I'm at school in Tucson.

TITAN GIRL, you're from AZ originally? Sweet!

I was born in Charlotte, NC. Then we moved all the way across the country to Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Next we went all the way back to South Boston, VA. Now I am in M-Town. All of these distances were moved in car, not plane as well. I go across country in car about four times each year. I'm driving back to VA this weekend.

I had moved several times during my life........

I was born in Melaka, Malaysia but was quickly moved to a small town called Gemas where my father was working......

..... less than a year later, my father was transfered to Seremban. There, I spent 5 years, before my father was transfered back to where I was born (also where my father was born and grew up). That's where I lived the longest, 12 years!

Those 3 places are within an hour driving from each other though.

Then I went to a junior college at suburb of Kuala Lumpur (the nation's capital) which is 2 hours away. I studied for almost 2 years. Then I worked for a few months in my hometown, before ended up in a job in Singapore for 7 months. Even that's only 3 hours away from my home.

Then I came to Florida, US, which is more than 10,000 miles away from where I was born and lived. This is my 5th year in US, and I am still in Florida.
