Meta Question

If you listed the places you've lived so far on your profile, what order did you use and why?

Asked by mcbealer (10182points) March 1st, 2010

Chronological? Alphabetical? (like me) Other?
I often wonder this when I read other jellies’ profiles.
Of course, as we get to know one another some users refer to their actual present day location…

Closest to my present location to farthest, no reason

I never thought about it, but it goes in reverse chronological order. Except that L.A. should also be at the end.

I guess there really isn’t any reason behind it.

Divine revelation.
I prayed and fasted for weeks before my vision. i still sometimes agonize over their placement but i can’t look back

From birth on. Because that’s in the order it came to me.

chronological, made sense.

I started out chronologically, switched to randomly in the middle, and then back to chronological ending at my next to last location. I have just moved so will have to edit.

@rooeytoo ~ ha ha, I started out chronologically then switched to alphabetical to throw ‘em off

Mine are listed by height.

@filmfann LOLL.

Since I’ve only lived in 2 states, I listed them first to last & said “in that order”.

Chronological, alphabetical, geographical, and scatalogical.

I’ve only lived in the one place.

Random, apparently.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Mine are chronological in that they list the country or region that I’ve lived in while being stationed or deployed various times in my military career.

mcbealer's avatar

these are all very interesting responses so far…

forestGeek's avatar

I listed them from most recent on down. I left out a few along the way just because I’d rather forget them.

Trillian's avatar

I went in chronological order. I guess so I wouldn’t forget one. Yes, I’m really that stupid.

YARNLADY's avatar

Chronological – only the highlights, I skipped a lot of them.

SeventhSense's avatar

@AstroChuck
scatalogical
Just threw some shit at a map and whatever stuck?

Trillian's avatar

@SeventhSense I think he’s saying “It’s the shit”!
