One of the things that goes along with getting my new job (and goes along with getting any state job these days, actually) is a criminal background check. The paperwork has been a little challenging for me so far.
I’m certainly not concerned about what will come up on this check, but the first thing they ask you to do is “list all addresses at which you lived in the past seven years. Continue on back, if necessary:”
Oh, and I continued.
What I thought was interesting as I made the list was thinking back to the days that I moved in and the days I moved out of all these places. I can remember each one. God-DAMN I have moved a lot in a short period of time. Seven years feels like it was a century ago. Here’s my list:
|7/1/06-present||661 Division St||Oshkosh||WI||54901|
|7/1/04-6/30/06||470 N Main St||Oshkosh||WI||54901|
|11/1/03-6/30/04||2080 Dickinson Ave||Oshkosh||WI||54904|
|6/1/03-10/31/03||2716 Woodridge Ln||Waukesha||WI||53188|
|1/20/03-5/31/03||606 Nelson Story||Bozeman||MT||59715|
|8/30/02-1/19/03||Johnstone Hall, Rm 4415||Bozeman||MT||59715|
|7/21/02-8/29/02||3520 Shangri-la Rd||Eagle River||WI||54521|
|1/15/02-7/20/02||6140 S 18th St||Milwaukee||WI||53221|
|6/1/99-1/14/02||456 High Ave||Oshkosh||WI||54901|
Wow. Maybe next place I go, I’ll try to settle in a little while.
