    JDPNYY's 2020 Question of the day #4 - Wednesday 3/25/2020

    How many times did you change residences (aka: move) before your 18th birthday?

    Seemingly, day 435 of pandemic and isolation. The world is upside down and I feel like I'm at the bottom, right side up.

    Once - I was 16 and it was only about 15 minutes west. I didn't have to change schools so it mostly felt irrelevant.

    One change of permanent address. For three years before my 18th birthday, I lived away from home most of the time, but my official permanent address didn’t change.

    Zero. Same house my parents built in 1936 and the same house I bought after my mother died and have lived in for the past twenty years.

    I think about 9 times, but I might be off by 1 or 2. I never moved far, we were always in a 3 city area, but as a child of poor, divorced, parents, I moved a lot. At one point in middle school, I was homeless with my dad, and we moved from hotel, to a cheaper hotel, to a god-awful hotel, then to sleeping on the floor of my cousin’s “house,”, which was really a tiny, converted wash room. There were five of us in a place so tiny that when someone wanted to shower, everyone else had to leave, because you literally stood in a large bucket and used a pail to wash yourself, and you couldn’t close the bathroom door if the bucket was on the floor. I counted all the hotels and that “house” as moving once. We eventually moved into a trailer parked on someone’s property for a year or so, before moving again. Good times.

    I moved a lot. To the kitchen, back to my room, leave, come back, to outside, come inside. Did a lot of moving!

    Once. I moved from Glastonbury, CT to Palm Beach Gardens, FL on my 15th birthday. I had made some good friends in CT, but I was able to get behind the notion of living 10 miles from the beach.

    Four, I think:

    - Once within the same English town, Cheltenham when I was about two
    - From there to Laurel, MD when I was five
    - Back again to the English town (same house as before) when I was eight
    - And then again cross-town when I was ten

    After that, pretty stable for my teens. But I made up for lost time! Not counting college, I think I'm up to 10 moves of house since graduation, and we're planning an eleventh, though hopefully the last for a while, to Sweden.

    Be seeing you,

    Sorry you had to deal with that at formative ages. Good on you for persevering and becoming a teacher (I think - right?)

    Legally and technically, zero. But I left for the AF Academy three weeks before my 18th birthday. Don't know if that counts. My legal address remained in NJ for most of my AF career, despite living in CO, TX, ND, CA, NY, and CO again.

    Thank you! I’m a School Psychologist. I finally bought my first home four years ago, and am still the only person in my family of 7 to do so. It was a long road from homeless to homeowner.

    I believe I lived in three different residences, so we moved twice (actually my parents moved. I was more akin to baggage). I don't remember the first two places at all.

    So tomorrow you ask how many residences you lived at after the 18?
