Where do you live?Why?

April 21, 2008 10:17pm CST
Where do you live and why?Did you grow up there?Whats the best thing about it?How does it compare to anywhere else you have been?I want details ppl.. I live in Utah now and i did not grow up here..The best thing about utah is that there are mountains all around me and anytime i feel down or stressed i look at them and feel at least a little better.. I grew up in florida and I miss the beaches and my family..I plan to travel and live a few more places until I find a place to stay forever..That will only happen when I find the Woman who catches my heart

I live and grew up in caloocan city but i was born in our province. i guess the best things about living in the city was that i able to meet new friends that are my close friends and the school only 30 minutes travel from home. When I get a stable job, i plan to visit some asian countries like korea, japan, taiwan, hong kong, singapore, etc

I live on the East Coast of Australia, in New South Wales. I live in the town because it's where my family settled after I was born, moving up here from Sydney. I don't yet have the finances to move away, so I'm kind of just stuck here. It's a nice enough place, but it is a kind of rural town with not much to offer you once you're between 16 and 50 years of age =P The best thing about living here is probably just that all of my friends are here and it's a relatively safe place for me to just wander around. It's also really beautiful, with the beaches and national parks nearby. Compared to the other places I have travelled, though, it still doesn't feel like home. It's not quite conservative here, but it's definitely not progressive. I feel most at home in Melbourne, Victoria. =)

I am between the age bracket of 16 and 50 =P It's just a small (but still slowly growing) place, where it's great to grow up and go to school, but there's no real life opportunities here - nowhere to start a career, no where to work but in retail etc.

36 miles NE of Dallas, Texas. Born in Seattle, Washington but for the most part raised in Texas. Family is from South Texas and Louisianna. I spent most of my time between San Antonio and Houston. Throughout my lifetime have lived in ... Munich, Germany Seattle, Washington Richmond, Virginia Corpus Christi, Texas Austin, Texas San Antonio, Texas Singapore, Singapore Ft. Worth, Texas I think I have lived other places for short periods but those are the ones that count. Now I live in Dallas - Don't love it here but I don't hate it. Dallas isn't really a Texas city as much as it is just a city. But my adult children are here. My oldest is married and will be a father for the first time this year. My youngest is to be married this year.

The one? For me it is heart home as in a place not a person. Texas is heart home for me. South Texas is heart home. It is where my roots are. It is where I am most comfortable in my skin and where I know I belong in every real sense of the word. There are many places in the world I love....to visit some even for extended periods of time but no place that holds my heart like Texas. My husband is Bahamian. His heart is held firmly in the islands. He is homesick most of the time and so we go back often. The Bahamas are my second home and I do love them. Some day we will go back permanently. But we will keep a second home in Texas so that we can always come home for extended visits and feed my roots as well.

I live here in Philippines, I grew up here.. The best thing about Philippines is that there are beaches around me and also mountains, when you want to see a good places you don't need to go to other countries because here in the philippines you can see all the good places here.. If you love beaches there is a lot of beautiful beaches here around the philippines. If u want to visit the philippines I guarantee u should love it.

I am from Philippines also Erianne. You're definitely right about the beautiful beaches here in our country and there are other beautiful places here where you can be surrounded by mountains. But the best of it all, people here are genuinely friendly. They welcome everyone and treat them with respect.

I lve in a own calld lapeer michigan, I have grown up here and I have moved away to Florida and alabama and MO. I would much rather live anywhere but here since im sure most of you know that michigans economy is worse then any other state right now. lapeer is full of craby people that just want to make your day as bad as theres. the only reason I am living here again is cause lapeer is one of those towns that you get traped in, Its hard to mave away when things are tough. But we plan on moving as soon as we get the chance.

I live in San Diego and I moved here with my mom when I was almost 13, so I've been here most of my life. I used to live in Detroit, Michigan which I didn't like. Michigan isn't that bad, except for the snow, but Detroit was absolutely horrible! When we moved, my Dad's family still lived in the area, but the family was smaller because my dad was the only one who had kids. My mom's family was already out here in California and it was a very large family. So, I have a lot more relatives out here than I do there. I still want to live here or anywhere else in the southwest because it is so beautiful here and there's no snow. That's the most important requirement, that and no mosquitoes.

I live in California. I enjoy the weather here because it strikes a balance between hot and cold. The weather is just right. I also like the people here because they are so friendly and warm. As the golden state, it really does live up to my expectations. It is very culturally diverse as well. My family is originally from the Philippines and I went back and forth the country. I just can't compare both places because they are beautiful in a different way. I love both!

I'm currently living and working in Fogang, a small town in Southern China. I came here to work as an English teacher almost two years ago now. I find the culture interesting, but admit that I'm happy to be heading back home to Australia at the end of this year. Being a small town, there are very few people here who speak English, which has made it a bit of a lonely stay. But the kids I teach are absolutely great, and I'll really miss them when I go.
