When did you leave home?
This is a difficult question due to the fact that I have had a lot of homes in my life. The first home I remember was our house at 814 Sherman St in South Bend, Indiana. I lived there until 1982 when my mom remarried and we moved to Ohio. That was a tough move because I left behind all my extended family and friends. I still have many fond memories of that house. I would say that when I left home to go to college in 1992 that was more difficult as I was going off on my own with no family to accompany me.

Where was it?
The house is in Middletown, Ohio. I won’t give the address as my parents still live there.

Where did you move to?
I moved into a dorm room in Mack Hall on the Ohio State University main campus. It was an all girls dorm and I didn’t really know my roommate at all.

What was it like – describe it – each room.
When my parents bought the house I was about 10 years old. The house had a nice big yard and a neighbor with 3 daughters too! They became extended sisters for us. My room was my favorite part of the house as I was always curled up with a book or studying. I loved solitude. Another great party of the house was the basement. My sisters and I would spend hours down there playing Barbies and Legos. It was carpeted with this cool pattern with hopscotch and Chinese checkers and other games.
