    Lived with parents - bought flat - been there ever since! :p
  3. For a spell between 3rd and 10th grade I lived in a different town or state each year. Then I moved back to MA from CA, and had moved once more with my 'rents, then 4 times total since "goin it on my own".

    So yeah, I hate moving. :smug:

    Not that often...

    When I lived with my parents we moved three times. Then I moved from them to my own apartment.
    So in total I've moved 4 times.

    21 times in 36 years..............

    I hate moving.
  9. I've moved one time, and it was literally just a few blocks down the road.

    Granted, I'm 21 and live with my parents still. :D

    (should be getting an apartment by this time next year, however)

    I payed a lot less for it, than it is now worth! :p

    But your "calculations" are missing one vital fact - you don't know when I moved out from my parents!! :meh:
