I have two.  I grew up in Paso Robles, Ca until 7th grade, then moved to Eagle, Id…then back to Cali lol.  I went to middle schools and high schools in both Ca and Id.

@outgoingcutie15:  I consider myself to have two. I was born and raised for most of my younger years in Louisiana. When my mom took a new job in Alabama, we moved there when I was in elementary school, although every other weekend we would go back to Louisiana for various things, such as family events/football games. I did go back to Louisiana for college, and lived there afterwards for a while. I consider that my home, although I did spend a good chunk of life and high school in Alabama, so it holds a special place in my heart, too. 

I am sure to people not from the region think that those two places should be very similiar, and in a lot of ways they are. But there are cultural differences between the two and now that I live in Tennessee, I can see just how different my upbrining was compared to people here!

I have two.  One where I moved for university, met my husband and have lived for the last ten years, and the town I grew up in. 

Makes for very confusing facebook status updates.  “Going home for the weekend!” and then on Monday “So nice to be home!”

I was born and lived in Munich till I was 5 and have spent countless weekends/summers/holidays there (did a year at uni in Germany so it was very much my home town then) me and FH have also lived there for a year. But I was brought up in the UK from 5 that is where I was educated, lived and still live (same city).

Depending on who or why I am talking too the hometown changes.

I have several.  My dad was in the military so we moved around a lot.  My family is all from Michigan, but my sister and I were born in Wisconsin.  My parents live in Louisiana and I’ve lived on the opposite side of the state for the last ten years so sometimes I don’t know what to say.  Guess it just depends on the question I’m asked.

My husband does. The town where he lived until high school, and then were he lived for high school/where we live now. I lived in the same house all my life, until graduation, when I moved to the town where I live now. I don’t really count the first one as my hometown, as I lived on a farm ten miles from the closest town.

I’m so glad you brought this topic up! Everyone teases me (in a joking way) because my ‘hometown’ is not where I feel at home. I moved around a lot, and lived in 6 different states. I lived in one state for about 8 years..spent the years of 10-18, and graduated high school there…my parents still live there, but I only go ‘home’ like once a year if that (I live on the other side of the country now)…plus it’s not considered the best state to be from (lots of negative stereotypes) so I try to not answer that question. The city I went to college/grad school in for 5 years is where i consider my hometown. It’s where I first lived alone, became independent, and discovered who I am 🙂

I have 3. (1) The place where I was born. I spent my early childhood here, and my entire extended family, on both sides is from this area. (2) The place where I went to middle school & high school (3) the city in which I attended college. All of these places feel like home to me.
