It’s nice to celebrate the idea of purchasing a house because (in theory) I won’t be moving any time soon. That got me thinking. How many times have I moved recently. I plotted it out on a google map when I needed to take a brief break from reading for my class.
Each little marker indicates a place I have lived since graduating from college. This doesn’t even factor in my many moves during the college years. This all occurred over the past 10 years. 3 of the moves were necessitated by the fact that I didn’t have a lease with the place I was staying and I had to leave because the lard-lord sold the property to someone else and had other ideas for the space. I also had a 2 year stint back on campus as a faculty in residence.
Now I have settled down in an old brick house in Oswego. I still have to finish unpacking my office, otherwise we are in our home.
