Just thinking about how different my life might have been if I'd have continued my original plan of
- go the uni I went to as it was the best in the country for the course
- move to big city back close to where I grew up after graduating as most of my friends from home were there and it was an area I knew
Instead I got involved in a project in my last year of uni that I wanted to spend a bit more time on after graduating and whilst dithering about plans, met the person who I then spent 10 years and had 2 kids with
Now can't move as kids in school and kids dad is here and he sees them regularly, wouldn't want to change that but still in the university city I moved to for "only 3 years" 17 years later!
So why do you live where you do? Was it your first choice always?
