Your friends and family aren’t surprised when you announce another move and are always asking, “Hey, where are you moving next?
You’re a pro at packing and unpacking.
You can’t believe it when people talk about growing up in ONE house and rarely leaving the state.
You move instead of taking vacations.
Your online shopping “Ship To” list has a lot of different addresses in several different states and cities.
You don’t understand it when people talk about being homesick after just being gone from their house for a couple days.
“Where are you from?” is an awkward question.
You’ve stopped getting attached to your house, town and state.
Home is just “that place I live for now”.
Being social and having friends can be challenging….depending on your personality.
Your family car feels like your second home.
You’re great at entertaining yourself during long road trips.
You get crazy excited when you find someone else who has moved a lot, too.
You have a lot of interesting stories to tell.
Your best friends are likely online/through snail mail.
Home is your family – not a geographical location.
You’re a pro at becoming acclimated to new climates.
You wonder what it feels like to really belong in a place.
You’re an expert when it comes to looking at houses.
If you don’t like a place, you’re comforted by the thought that you’ll likely move again soon.
“Are your parents in the military?” You get that question all the time.
“If you’re not in the military, why do you move so much?” You never really know how to answer that.
Move-in day is the greatest.
You’re amazingly fast at memorizing your address and remembering major street names so that you can give quick answers when people ask where you live.

You get mixed up trying to remember what year (and what month) you moved from various houses.
You can’t remember what house you were living in when you turned [insert age] years old.
When you think about your future, you have one of two thoughts: “I hate moving, I’m buying a house and staying here forever.” Or “I AM A NOMAD! I’M BUYING AN RV AND TRAVELING EVERYWHERE!!!”
P.S. I was planning to post this in a couple days, but *sobs* I accidentally hit the publish button early so…..XD
