In 9 months, I'll be in the unusual position of being able to move anywhere. I'll be done with school, and my job is one of those "100% travel, live anywhere" gigs. Family & friends are scattered enough that there's no one obvious place to move to (Navy brat), and the Bay Area's too damn expensive to stay in. I'll probably end up deciding by throwing a dart at a map, but I'd like to make this my last move. FOCUS: How did you end up where you live now? Stay in your hometown? Chase the girl/guy of your dreams cross-country? Steal $600k from the mob and need a place to lie low? ALT-FOCUS: Where'd you like to live, given the option? Be realistic: we'd all love a private island and a Gulfstream for commuting, but that ain't gonna happen for the 99%. ALT-ALT-FOCUS: I've moved 7 times (not including same-city moves) since 18, and that's too many, but I'm sure there's others who've had it worse. Share your number and funny/awful moving stories in general.
