how many of you have MOVED? - September 22nd 2009, 11:13 PM

i've met people who have moved a lot and people who've never moved in their life. what are you?


I want a moment to be real
Want to touch things I don't feel
Want to hold on, and feel I belong
And how can the world want me to change?
They're the ones that stay the same
They don't know me, but I'm still here

I've stayed in the same general area but switched schools once.

I would've changed schools from primary to secondary anyway, but I changed to a private school instead half a year before going to secondary school (the school I'm at now just has seperate houses/buildings for junior and senior so it wasn't really like moving from primary to secondary again...kind of confusing to explain, but the school is junior house, senior house and sixthform all together. )

When I was actually in school, I only moved once, but never changed schools. Then when I graduated, I moved twice on my own. Now, I'm in a whole new country.

I think I fail at reading... but I wanted an option for Leaving Home State and Switching Schools Once... cause that's me
I moved from Boston to CA when I was a baby, then moved from CA back to Boston when I was in second grade. So I switched schools once.

Re: how many of you have MOVED? - September 22nd 2009, 11:46 PM

I've never stayed in the same school for more than two years. I moved from public high school in Canada after grade 10 to an American boarding school. For grade 12, I moved to Ireland with my family, started school there, hated it and went back to my American school, where I graduated.
Oh, and when I was 3, I moved houses, but that was even before I started school.
But I love it. I got bored of my schools really easily.

I moved a couple of times during my school career but was lucky enough to stay in the same school district until I graduated High School. (:

My parents most recent move is the only move that's made school a hassle, since I have to commute to my University. Moved from a busy city area to a country area, but it's now being developed, so I'm not as excited to be here.

None of these options fit me, because it was an in-state move but drastic change. I lived with dad in Mattapan, and mum in Southie (urban) until I was 14, then we moved to Holliston (suburban) when they got back together and had some money.

I moved house but that was before I started school so I don't know if that counts? I was like 3 odd. I don't know whether I'm happy about it, it's okay here but sometimes I wish I was somewhere better.

I moved from Texas to Oklahoma, but since I'm homeschooled, there wasn't any school-switching.

I've never moved school but technically I've moved house. My mum moved to the other side of town when she and my dad split up and I'm technically living with her even though I spend a lot of time at my dad's still.

Move a lot really

England, Hull --> Tanzania --> England, Hull --> England, current location --> Vietnam --> England, current location

I've been to 1 primary school and in total 5 secondary schools.

Woop for cultural education? I wouldn't change it. I love it. I have such a deeper appreciation of different cultures, values and the world than my friends because I've lived in such a variety of places and visited so many different parts of the world. At 19 I'm one of the best travelled people I've met, and I love that.

I've never moved school... but I guess you could say I've moved three times.
From my house I started in to my mothers house, then my dad left, so we moved half our week to his, then he moved again.
So not proper moving, but new addresses and rooms [:

I've moved house about 6 times in my life, but stayed in the same area.
I wouldn't say I've moved schools, but I've been in quite a few hospital schools.

I moved when I was about 3, but not far. And I have moved schools 3 times. Infant school --> Junior School (just before I was seven), Junior School --> Secondary School (11), Secondary School to a different one (just before I was 13). Then will be moving far for uni next year (fingers crossed).
