I'm from Toledo, Ohio which used to be the "glass capital of the world" although now we are better known for having race riots with neo-nazis. There's nothing to do, but I guess it's up to me. Although I've got nothing to say, but I suppose its okay. I'm working, but I don't really want to go, I'm feeling low...down. When I head for home, I start to roam, then I'm in town. Everyone here knows there really is nothing to do, everything actually is closed it really is like a ruin, everyone I see is half asleep (bums mostly) and then I'm on my own, but hopefully not in the street although sometimes I can't avoid it. After awhile I start to smile, then I feel at least a little bit cooler.a-hard-days-night-john-7

I was born in Halifax and lived in Huddersfield, both in West Yorkshire, England.

Three days before my 7th birthday I moved to Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Now I live in Mundoolun, a semi-rural area in Logan, just south of Brisbane.

I don't think there's anything notable about any of the places I've lived.

I know what you mean! I'm moving out into an apartment with a few friends over the Summer, going to Weed! I just learned the place I'm going to live in for the next few years may have possibly been a whorehouse in the past! There is one kitchen, one bathroom, 7 bedrooms and no living room! On top of all this (or maybe under) the apartment is over a bar! No black lights allowed!!!!!!a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I feel pretty silly - never heard of Waterdown until your post, and then I look it up and realize how close you are! Obviously I don't get out much.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Oh, it's small all right- I don't blame you.

Philadelphia, PA…known for being the first capital of the US, birthplace of America (see: Declaration of Independence), first zoo in the USA, home to Rocky Balboa, land of cheesesteaks, water ("wooder") ice, Tastykakes and soft pretzels.  My house/flat is in a suburb just outside the city lines.

I've been living in Cardiff, Wales (same as Joe) for almost a year now.  I generally spend a fair bit of time in the UK because I'm dual national, but when I finish my MA in September, it's back to Philly.

Do what you want to do, and go where you're going to…
