Writer's Block: Places to Lay Your Head

How many different places (cities, houses, apartments, dorm rooms, etc.) have you lived in? Which is your favorite? And your least favorite?


1. Grew up on a farm in a 150+ year old house.
2-5 - various lodgings, shared houses when I was in college.
6. one year living in a house in town with my parents between 1 being sold and the 7 being built.
7. New bungalow built for my parents
8. Living with a friend of the family in the big city. Spent almost a year sleeping on a mattress in her bedroom, then another 8 months or so in my own room after her lodger moved out.
9. Living in a shared house with people I'd never met before I moved in. Lots of random people moved in and out in the five years I lived there.
10. Living in an apartment with a friend from college with whom i'd shared most of 2-5.
11. Another apartment in the same complex as 10, also with friend from college.

Of them all, I think my favourite would have to be 1.
I grew up there, and while it might have been a bugger to heat and was fairly isolated, the rooms were spacious and I loved the peace of the countryside.
Least favourite? Well some of 2-5 were pretty grotty, but I was young, I was in College, and it really didn't matter. I'd say I was least happiest in 9, but I'm well out of that now.
