Wow… people haven’t posted here in ages… anyway, I’m Katie, a 19 year old Foreign Service Brat. I’ve been in six different countries, and moved about 9 times.

Actually, it’s kinda of funny. When I tell people about moving all the time, they either have two reactions: “Oh that’s so cool!”, or “You Poor Thing!”. For me, it’s not really either of those, it’s just a way of life that has it’s good points and it’s bad. Truthfully I cannot imagine staying in one place for more than five or six years, since I’ve never stayed in one place that long.

Anyway, I was really happy about finding this community. I’ve just spent all night looking for a community of the like, but hadn’t been able to find anything. And then I found this. *grins* This is actually a welcome breath of fresh air, since there a very few people who can relate at my college (since pretty much everyone is from in state).

So yeah, I just wanted to say “hi”. Nice to meet you all.

I'm looking for people willing to share moving tips for a soon-to-be published how-to book.

Anyone interested in being interviewed should e-mail me with the subject heading "Interview Request - Moving." The interview contains 10 questions, and must be completed by March 20th.

Thanks!

Hello everyone. I just joined. My name is Katie, I'm 20, and I've moved 13 times. I've lived in West Virginia, Texas, Ohio, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Colorado, Oklahoma, Ireland; and various cities within those places. And in two months I'll be picking up again. This time to New Mexico.

I'm excited to find this community, even though it's small. I don't know anyone else who has moved around like I have their entire life. When someone asks where I grew up, what can I say? The road. In boxes. And sometimes people frown, and say they're sorry, but I wouldn't trade my life for anyone's.

Yes, sometimes I wished that I had the same friends my whole life, or that I lived in one house, or went to the same high school for all four years. But then I think about all the amazing people I've met along the way. All the adventures, and things I've gotten to see that they might never get to see. I love to move. My family were modern day nomads, and I embrace that. It's in my blood.

I wonder if I'll ever be able to settle down. It's a genuine concern, as I find myself itching to move if I'm in one place for over a year. Because that's so rare. So...maybe it will always be like this. And maybe one day I'll find that perfect place and think...oh, aha, that's what I've been doing all this moving for. And maybe I won't. It's okay either way, I suppose.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello. Nobody really understands what it's like to move so often except the other folks that have done it, so I'm happy to meet you all.
