    Well - not technically.

    I was born here (Canada) and lived here until I was 10, but then I moved overseas and lived there until graduating high school. Now I'm back and I'm going to be starting university in September, but I feel oh so very foreign and lonely. My family's scattered across the globe and...

    I just moved to this very small (but still

    twice the size of my hometown) town a week ago for a job. I can't wait for work to start getting busy, I hate not knowing anyone.

    I moved out of my hometown into this city in August, to attend college. I absolutely love school, but can't say the same about my new house. I'm staying with a woman who rents rooms in her house to students, but she's sort of gross in her habits, and I can't even walk barefoot...

    Newly Small Town Gal.

    I recently moved to a very, very small town in the middle of other very small towns. I think I'm passed the "OH GOD. THERE'S NOTHING TO DO HERE. NO WAY DO I HAVE ANYTHING IN COMMON WITH THESE PEOPLE." freakout phase. I am used to seeing people out and about, and having friends to...
