Places I’ve Called ‘Home’

by Meghann on March 5, 2011

It’s moving day!

While we’re hauling boxes up and down stairs, I thought you would enjoy this look back at the places I’ve called ‘home’ the past 26 years.

My First Home

  • Years: 1985 – 1987
  • Location: Port St John, Florida
  • Layout: No idea! Before I can remember. πŸ™‚
  • Roommates: Mom, Dad, & Josh

This was more my parents’ first home than mine. I know very little about it besides the fact that my Dad left the stove on one morning and almost burnt the place down. My Mom awoke to smoke and quickly grabbed her sleeping newborns before hauling butt out the door. Thankfully everything ended up being ok. πŸ™‚

Childhood Home

  • Years: 1987 – 1999
  • Location: Titusville, FL
  • Layout: Three Bedrooms, Two Bathrooms, 1600 sq ft, SIX people!
  • Roommates: Mom, Dad, Josh, Kelly, & Ben (’89)

My parents’ built my childhood home while they were expecting Kelly. At the time it was going to be temporary because of the growing size of their family, but they ended up loving the neighborhood so much we stayed for 12 years.

The house was tiny! Kelly and I shared a small room. Ben and Josh shared a small room. And the four of us shared a tiny bathroom at the back of the house. I hated sharing a room growing up, I loved my sister, but we were constantly fighting and bickering.

The house sat in a suburban neighborhood and had a huge lake in the back yard. It was really the ideal neighborhood to grow up in because the street was full of kids my age. There was a group of us that would always be riding bikes, playing street hokey, flashlight tag, truth or dare, etc. I hated being inside because it was so much fun to play outside with my friends!

Eventually we outgrew the house and moved out. Slowly all of my neighborhood friends followed suit. It’s sad that none of us did a great job of catching up. I miss them sometimes.

High School

  • Year: 1999 – 2003 (present)
  • Location: Titusville, FL
  • Layout: Five Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Two stories
  • Roommates: Mom, Dad, Josh, Kelly, & Ben

My parents purchased their current house when I was a freshmen in high school. It was almost three times the size of the house we were living in at the time and for the first time ever (including those 9 months in the womb!) I had my own room. MY OWN ROOM!

Oldbedroom.jpg

Every little girl who shares a room with her sister dreams of the day when she will have a room of her own. πŸ™‚ I loved having my own room and never, ever took it for granted! The room was located on the opposite end of the house from my siblings’ rooms and I ended up having my own bathroom too. The only trade off was a smaller closet, which I learned to live with.

blueroom.jpg

The new house was in a different school zone than our previous house, so sophomore year I had to switch high schools. It was scary leaving all of my friends I had grown up with, but it was also exciting to be starting somewhere new.

blueroom2.jpg

My parents’ house is the perfect house for a big family. It has a great big room in the back with a pool table (and what used to be a fooseball and air hockey table) that was perfect for parties. Somehow my friends would always end up at my house when there was nothing else to do in town.

Freshmen Dorm

  • Year: Fall ’03- Spring ’04
  • Location: Sally Hall, Florida State University
  • Layout: Suite style dorm with two bedrooms, four girls, and one bathroom
  • Roommates: Becca, Jessica, and Erin (all randoms!)

I thought I knew what I was getting myself into when I moved into the dorms freshmen year of college. Turns out I didn’t know anything.

Truth is this was my first time living away from home and I had a lot of growing up to do. My roommates had no problem setting me straight on certain issues and though I spent the first couple of weeks in tears, it was good for me to hear it all. My roommates were all amazing and I was thankful to have them.

dormroom.jpg

The dorm never really felt like ‘home.’ Instead it was more like camp. The quarters were cramped, it was hard to eat real meals, and we had thermostat wars with our neighbors. It was a once in a lifetime experience that I’m glad I had and really makes me appreciate the apartment living styles that followed that much more.

First Off Campus Housing

  • Year: Fall ’04 – Summer ’05
  • Location: Off Campus Apartments, Tallahassee
  • Layout: Two bedroom, two bathroom apartment
  • Roommate: Jordan (friend from high school)

I loved this little apartment! It was on the first floor of the first building of the complex and was really easy to give people directions to. Rent was also really cheap. I believe we each paid $380 and that covered everything.

100_0638.JPG

However, parking at this particular complex sucked! There were maybe one or two visitor spots and they were always full! My Mom was towed from the complex once as well as a couple of my friends.

100_0637.JPG

This was my first real apartment. Jordan and I were so excited when we were apartment hunting and even brought both of our Mom’s up to check the place out before we signed the lease. We opted for the unfurnished option to save $100 a month on rent (most college apartments come furnished for $$). Our furniture consisted of hand me downs and random objects I stole from my room at home.

100_0644.JPG

This will always remain the party apartment in my head. I had a long single stretch sophomore year and was going out three times a week (or more!) with Jordan and our friend Emily. We had some good times!

100_0645.JPG

As great of friends as Jordan and I were, we weren’t great roommates. We spent more time fighting than being friends, so at the end of our lease we decided to part ways.

100_0643.JPG

Junior Year Living

  • Year: Fall ’05 – Summer ’06
  • Location: Off Campus Apartments, Tallahassee
  • Layout: Four bedroom, Four bathroom apartment
  • Roommates: Erin, Ashley, Ebony

Junior year I moved with my freshmen suitemate (Erin) into a four bedroom furnished apartment right down the street from campus. Since it was just the two of us we opted for random roommates to fill the other two spots and, oddly enough, one of those randoms, Ashley, was a girl I went to high school with. Small world.

100_2478.JPG

Erin and I made really good roommates. I think we were just different enough to make it work. I still consider her one of my best friends today. πŸ™‚

The apartment was your typical college living apartment with cheap functional furniture, an overflowing fridge, and a balcony that overlooked someone else’s balcony.

100_2479.JPG

This was the same year my sister started at FSU and I would have her and her roommate over once a week for dinner. I LOVED cooking for them!

100_2480.JPG

A few months into living in this apartment Erin started to get really sick. Turns out we had a mold problem that was bothering her ability to breathe and talk. She brought her parents in to battle with the complex, but since we had already resigned a lease for the next year the best they could do was move us to another apartment in the same complex for the start of the new school year.

100_2481.JPG

The complex never really believed we had mold and ended up moving another group of girls into our old apartment. Months later we discovered the girl that had Erin’s old room was having the same health problems as Erin! The complex ended up blaming us for feeding the girl our horror stories and the whole things turned into one big mess.

100_2482.JPG    

Senior Apartment

  • Year: Fall ’06 – Summer ’07
  • Location: Off Campus Apartments, Tallahassee
  • Layout: Four bedroom, Four bathroom apartment
  • Roommates: Erin, Alyssa, Shauna

Senior year Erin and I stayed in the same complex, but moved a few buildings over to the first floor (Woop! Woop!) Our friend Shauna moved in with us and we ended up with a random (Alyssa) who was a really easy going roommate.

102_2820.JPG

We loved throwing group parties (err… our version of ‘parties’) at this apartment. We did a College Thanksgiving (I made a turkey!), a Easter Celebration, and a Graduation Party.

100_1864.JPG

I graduated in May of ’07 and decided to stay in Tallahassee at the apartment while I looked for a job and figured out what to do with life after graduation. I ended up finding a job in Tallahassee that July and had a couple of weeks to find an apartment.

Last year in Tallahassee

  • Year: Fall ’07 – Summer ’08
  • Location: Tallahassee
  • Layout: Three bedroom, Three bathroom townhouse
  • Roommates: Heather, A girl I can’t remember her name (?)

I found my final Tallahassee apartment off of craigslist. The girl who lived there was connected to my friend Emily and her Dad owned it. It was three bedrooms, but the owner was offering individual leases for each bedroom that included everything. It was my first time actually paying for an apartment on my own and it sounded like a deal to me.

(The only photos I have of this apartment are of Abbie with the apartment in the background)

100_3611.JPG

What sounded like a deal at the time ended up being a HORRIBLE living situation. The girl who was there when I moved in, moved out after a couple of months and I ended up having the entire townhouse to myself for a while (and was still only paying for the one room!). Then another girl moved in for a while and moved out. And then another. I never got along with any of the girls and would avoid them when I was there.

082.JPG

My ex and I brought a new puppy (Abbie :)) into the apartment that Fall. Abbie ended up making my fragile relationship with my landlord worse. Anyone who is training a puppy knows how crazy they can be. Abbie would whine in her crate and wake my roommate up. She would constantly call her Dad (my landlord) to complain and all of a sudden I wasn’t allowed to have a dog in the apartment anymore. It was a constant battle over Abbie, which I know was partly my fault, but I wasn’t giving Abbie up without a fight!

CIMG0002.JPG

At the end of the year I was never more happy to leave an apartment as I was to leave that place!

On My Own in Orlando

  • Year: Fall ’08 – Spring ’11
  • Location: Orlando
  • Layout: One bedroom, One bathroom apartment
  • Roommates: Abbie (until August 09 πŸ™ ), Maddie (Aug ’09 – Present)

And here we are – back at the present.

IMG_5789.JPG

I actually moved home for a little bit after I left Tallahassee. I didn’t start apartment hunting until I landed my job in Orlando and then I specifically looked at locations that were a minimal driving distance from the office.

IMG_5797.JPG

I found my apartment on a whim. Kelly, Anthony, and I went apartment hunting on a random weekday and saw three or four complexes that had a gazillion fees and were $$. Our method of hunting involved driving from complex to complex on a stretch of road I liked. We turned into my current complex, but discovered it was a privately owned condo community. However, they had a book of flyers for owners who were looking for tenants.

IMG_5819.JPG

My apartment was buried in the back. I found the flyer, called the number, and drove to the back to meet Emily (the owner) for a quick tour. Her and her husband had just purchased a big house for their growing family (can you believe they lived in my apartment with a newborn for a few months before moving out?!) and weren’t prepared to sell their condo in the down market.

IMG_5829.JPG

The apartment was perfect. I loved everything about it (there was even a doggie door to the balcony!) and what they were asking seemed reasonable. I wanted to sign the lease immediately, but another person had already submitted an application for a lease. I was bummed, but a couple of days later I got a call that the other applicant had fallen through and the place was mine!

IMG_5836.JPG

I moved in without any furniture at first ( my Dad was out of town and I had already started my job) and slept on a blow up mattress with Maddie for the first week. Once the furniture was moved in I spent no time making the place my own. It was my first time truly living on my own and I loved every minute of it.

IMG_5821.jpg

I’m really going to miss living by myself. It was an adventure I’m so thankful I had the chance to experience. No roommates. No parents. Just my little jack russell and me. I wouldn’t trade any of it for a second.

The Future

Now, I’m on to my next home and my next adventure. I’m moving in with a boy, I’m taking on the project of redecorating, and I’m starting out in a brand new city all over again.

Only time will tell where this new adventure will lead!

I loved this post! πŸ™‚ It’s so funny to see how everyone growing up in the early-mid 90’s had very similar rooms to what mine looked like. I know I had Spice Girls & other boy band posters all over my room. I can’t believe you had so many roomates throughout the years. Can’t wait to hear about how the move went! Good luck!

9 Laura March 5, 2011 at 11:33 pm

Funner fact. I still am! Their newest Cd, Shout It Out, is awesome and this is coming from a 27 year-old grad student who loves Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, and any other obviously non-pop band. Check ’em out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmG0DqhfDbY
(and yes, that’s Weird Al rocking out on the tambourine).
And, if you love Crosby, Stills, and Nash’s “Teach Your Children” check out their version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYLV1OG53Ho

Really enjoyed reading this post! I grew up with 3 other siblings with only 3 bedrooms for us to share. I was the middle child that always had to share a bedroom. I eventually roomed with each of them and then finally got my own room when my sister left for college when I was in the 9th grade. I had some crazy roommate experiences once I went to college too!

I lived in Smith Hall freshman year at FSU. I look back in horror at the living situation, but it was one of the best years of my life! I think they renovated Sally before you started there. At least I hope they did! It was SCARY in ’96-97.

This might be a weird question, but was her name Renee? She was mine during the last year and she was terrible, but before she was mine she was managing another complex and I heard horror stories from friends about her there too. Anyway! Good luck on your new adventure <3 xo

55 Lorin March 6, 2011 at 1:46 am

I am a freshman in college and I can definitely relate to living in cramped corridors. It makes me look forward to going home to my big bed. I am living in an on-campus apartment and will have my own room! It’s cool to see all the places you moved to. I am living with one girl I kinda know who has the same major as me and two other girls that my friend knows, but I have never met. It is kinda scary to think how it will all work out, or not, so this post comforts me that not everything is permanent and things change. I hope that it will work out for in the end though, we’re all nutrition majors so hopefully it will. I’m sure living with Derek will be fun for you, just a change. Did you ever get lonely or scared living by yourself?

56 Meghann March 7, 2011 at 9:50 am

People always asked that, but honestly, I LOVED living by myself. I had Maddie, my computer, and DVR to keep me company. I also had great neighbors that were super friendly and would always stop and stay hi.
