Moving and Shaking

I start a new consultant position on Wednesday. This employer requires I submit to a background check, including I provide my last 7 years of residences. I had most of the information compiled from a previous bureaucratic encounter, so I just had to add a couple more addresses.

As I transcribed locations and dates, I noted a couple things:


  • I’ve lived at 12 different addresses and moved 14 times in the last 10 years
  • My move next week will make lucky address 13
  • 5 unique addresses since graduating university in 2005
I thought I would be pretty stable in my previous residence, but that turned out not to be the case. I’m really looking forward to this new apartment - I’m much more excited about this new space than I was about the current one. I think it’d be nice to live there for longer than a year. Given all ove my other ambitions, however, this seems unlikely.
