Tell us where you have lived – and for how long – since you were born; whether you’ve always lived in the same place, or perhaps in a variety of places.
Moving or relocating from one apartment, region or a country to another is considered as a motive of adjusting with emerging lifestyle changes which normally happens in some people’s life due to foreseeable circumstances. However, I intend to perceive that most people who have achieved in life are those who made a decision of moving out from their place of birth.
Generally speaking, since I was born in New Delhi, India, many are the times that my family has been on a journey of constant movement in between from my birth city to my current residence in Fairfax, Virginia. After I was born, my family lived in India for two years before later immigrating to the United States of America.
Based on my personal experience, most families that immigrate to a different country perhaps encounter problems settling in one city or apartment for a longer period and consequently keep moving from apartment to apartment or city to city since they take time to adjust and adapt to the new environment.
We initially settled in Arlington where we lived until 2002. Moreover, we consistently moved from one apartment to another in a short time after we relocated from our first apartment. Consequently, we never lived for long in our second apartment, after a year, we later relocated to our third apartment in Silver Spring, Maryland where we also stayed for a short period of one year before moving to a different complex. This habit of constant movement was uninhabitable. However, after some four years of constantly relocating from one apartment to another, later in 2006 we moved to an apartment in Fairfax, Virginia where we stayed for four years before moving to our current house in Fairfax, Virginia.
