I thought this might be a neat thread to make, chronicling where forumers have been in their lives, and where they are going. Always fun to see if someone is living nearby:

Past: Grew up on the West Coast.

Current: Attending John Hopkins, last year, on the East Coast.

Future: Psycologist in New York or Chicago.

The Wheel of Calculadon turns, and then suddenly? Orbital lasers.

    Future: Want to move the fuck out of Ohio

    I took a trip to California this year and loved it, so I'd really like to move out to the West Coast somewhere (finally, someplace where the population is liberal enough for me D: ). I'd also like living in a foreign country, though, so any English speaking foreign country is a possibility.

    Ohio was a great place to grow up, but our economy has been total shit. For as long as I've been paying attention to that kind of stuff, it's always been worse than the US economy in general.

    It's because I'm not real. I'm a figment of the forum's imagination.

    Past: Born in NC, moved around to England, Utah, Panama, and finally Pensacola, Florida where I was at from 4th grade till about a month ago. Got three years of my college done there and then moved to...

    Present: Monterey, CA where I am going to marry some whore of a sailor and finish my last year of my psych degree before we head off to

    Future: Hawaii. And then somewhere. I don't know where it will be long after that but it's going to involve lots of pets and faux-snobby dinner parties with friends. It has to.
