June 9, 2009 8:56pm CST
I am curious to know where everyone is from... Do you like it where you live?... have you always lived there.. and are there any special things where you live? I will start. I live in Woodward Oklahoma. I mostly like it, however sometimes I feel kind of out of place here. I grew up in a town called Fort Supply Oklahoma, and moved to May Oklahoma when I was a teenager. When I graduated, I got married and we moved to Goodwell oklahoma then i ended up moving back to woodward there were unique things about Fort supply there is a lake and it used to be a fort during the civil war and now they are building a windfarm it was a small town of about four hundred people tell me your information i always think its neet to learn more about different places and also neet to find out there are people from the same area as you thanks

Bangkok, Thailand. I like the way that Thailand has good environment[except in the city], but I don't like that the weather here is really hot. There are only 2-3 days in the winter that the weather is cold! I live in Thailand but I was born in Canada and live there for 9 months, so I didn't really remember anything when I was there. But it's good that I am Canadian citizen, so that I could go there to study when I have opportunity! By the way, have you guys ever visit Thailand before? There's many places for tourists to visit depend on your interesting! You can ask me if you need any suggestion when you want to come to visit Thailand!

I had visited Thailand recently and I loved the place.There was so much to see there.My itinary included Singapore and Malayasia too but I think I enjoyed Thailand the most.I had a frolicking time in Pattaya enjoying the beaches and water sports.Its a beautiful country.Something that I relished there was the lovely tender coconut water.How lucky to be living there.I would love to visit Thailand again.

Thanks~ I hope you will visit more places in Thailand soon. If you like quiet place, beach, sea. I suggest you should go to 'Prachuap Khiri Khan'. There's beautiful clean beaches with not much people there, it's good place to stay for holiday. Every time I went to swim in the sea, I saw fishes swim around too, they even try to taste my stomach! For the famous place in this province is 'Koh Talu'. There are many type of fishes and sea animals there. Very beautiful!

I live in Seattle. The summers are great, and I would never trade it for anything. The winter season is of course historically wet, but if its cold enough to snow its mixes things up. Definitely one of the most liberal cities I've ever been to, which honestly can get rather annoying sometimes; even coming from a left leaning person as myself. Nothing walking down the street surprises me anymore.

I live in Yangquan city,Shanxi province in China.I was born here and I love it.My hometown is rich in coal resources,is China's largest production base of anthracite(very hard form of coal that burns with little smoke or flame).Vinegar in our hometown is the most well-known in our country.Previously,in our home,every house hold vinegar will do.Every house has a large brewing.We are good to eat vinegar home. Although I do live in a small town unknown,I am very happy.Because I have many friends here.

I live in the Philippine, Cavite. We moved here when I was in high school at first I don't like the place because it is rural areas which has rice farm and sugar cane plantation. It is far from the city but now the Cavite is like Manila. There are malls near to our place and commercial establishment are everywhere.

Hi Italysmom - I was born in Iran but moved to Toronto (Canada) when I was 8 years old. I love living in Canada except during the months of December-March b/c the snow can get rediculous sometimes... I actually live just north of Toronto now - Toronto is a great place to live b/c there are many things to do around town with the kids...you can go the amusement park, you can go down to the beaches, go to the islands, etc etc..

I live in PA, in a small town named Union City, it is by Erie Pa which is better known. I have always lived in Pa. and always within 30 minutes of where I am now. I have thought of moving south as I hate our winters but my husband loves the winter. We have Lake Erie, The Erie Zoo, Waldameer Park and the Casino. My favorite thou is the countryside and the woods, creeks and wildlife.

I live in Vantaa, Finland. Finland is a very nice country, we have no hurricanes, floods, volcanos, earthquakes or anything like that. Also not much financial problems, very few people actually live in the streets. In fact those people wouldn't even have to live in the streets because we have so much shelters for them and stuff like that. I have lived here for my entire life.
• United States

I love to hear the safty of your home... and I also love that they ahve all of the shelters for the homeless. it is such a problem here. Its so sad..... people dieing in the cold because they might have made a mistake in their lives.. or.. in the worse case.. the children whose parents made the bad mistake and now they are out in the cold.. your home sounds like a fantastic place...

I live in beautiful British Columbia Canada. I am about 45 minutes east of Vancouver. I just love it. You can be in Whistler skiing and that same day be on the beach enjoying the sites and smells of the ocean. I hope to live right in Vancouver one day. But realestate is so expensive right now. My town is nestled beside the Golden Ears Mountain with Allouette Lake just 20 minutes away. Hiking trails galour. It truley is a wonderful place to live.

I now live in shanghai china, Shanghai is a big and beatiful city in China, many people from different country come to shanghai, live in shanghai, work in shanghai, I think shanghai has open mind to kind of people, no matter where they come from. My hometown is too far away from shanghai, so I can only back hometown once per year to see my parents.
