I'm aware that mylot is an international community but I'm just curious where everybody hails from. So give me a shout-out where you are currently mylotting. Also, tell me have you live in the same place all your life. Have you live in other places? Share some insights on the different places you called home. I was born and raised in the Philippines. I currently call Orlando, Florida home. I've lived in New York City and Los Angeles, California. How about you guys? P.S. : I'll be tallying the responses so I can have a picture of my responders demographics...Looking forward to the results.

I am happy to help you with the question that you pose to us members of myLot. You are right. This is an international community. I find it very interesting that there are so many people from around the globe that actively take part in this every day. I am a person that likes to come here and correspond with others when I can get the chance. I now reside in the state of Alabama in which I have moved from up north in Pennsylvania where I lived for over thirty years. It has just been seven months where I am at. And it seems to be going alright for now. I do miss my home town and I can get homesick from time to time but I am getting by. My son and husband are my family and we are trying to make things better where we are at. It isn't easy of course because of the economy and the way it has been. There have also been some minor setbacks but we're still trying. I have been to Orlando, Florida many years ago. That seems like a nice place to live. As a matter of fact you are only just south of me right now!

I know how it feels to be new to a place. I've been here in Florida for a little less than two years, and in the last few months, hubby and I are physically separated due to work issues. He is actually in the same state where you are. Well, at least, you and your family are together this holiday season. Alabama - 1 Florida - 1 Nevada -1 Pennsylvania -1 Virginia - 1 Belgium - 1

I have lived all over California. I have never lived anywhere other thn California. I was born here and am now living in Southern California and am hopeing to move soon to a place in Northern California. I Love the California Redwoods and would love to live in or near the Them. I have been considering Northern Arizona because it is so much less to live there. It is so dry here. I have always lived near the ocean and only a couple of times have I lived inland.

California is such a huge state and is so diverse. You get great weather, beaches, mountains, deserts, forests, so I totally understand why you can move around there and not really leave.

Well, I was born in San Francisco, CA and now live in Seattle, WA area. I grew up in Illinois, and have lived in Oregon, and Georgia. I now am not planning on moving around unless it was to become necessary due to job transfer, or when my husband and I retire, and then we decide to move out of WA state.

I like visiting places but I hate moving. When I live in California, I move like 5 times within the span of three years..definitely a pain, so I know what you mean, by not making a move if its not necessary.

Home for me is Fairfax, VA right now because I have an apartment here with my boyfriend for school. I'm from VA Beach though. That's where my parents are so I'll always have a home there.

As I write this to you I am sitting in my flat, alone, in London and the rain is pouring outside and it's very windy too! I have the heating on full blast! It's also 12pm, gives you an indication of my time zone! I have always lived in London although I have moved to different properties in the past. I don't like the idea of moving home as I feel so insecure about this! I have some sense of security now though; I've been in my flat for a few years! I would love to live in the States though, the land where dreams come true and so forth! So, there you have it! I guess I will take in some tv time later! Andrew

I was born and raised most of my life in Massachusettes. I came to move to New Hampshire in 1994 where I have lived for the past 14 years now and love it. I have moved to several different cities between living in these two states. I think I won't ever move out of NH for it's to much like home and I would miss it to much.

The longer we live in a place, the more difficult it is too leave. Change after all is difficult for most of us. And fourteen years is enough time for you to have planted deep roots.
