"The Moment" is not a place I've lived since I gave up being 17.
  1. Noosa, Queensland, Australia
    I lived on a fucking beach in the most awesome country in the world. I would be willing to be 17 for the rest of my life if it meant I could go back (and teenagers suck).
  2. Portland, Maine
    Best food town on the continent. ISLANDS nearby. Cool harbor, cool beer. Demerits for absurdly early sunsets that made me realize I was susceptible to Seasonal Affective Disorder.
  3. Sydney, Australia
    Dope Harbor Bridge. Dope Opera House. Dope trains. Dope Tim-Tams.
  4. Ann Arbor, Michigan
    My hometown is a damn fine town.
  5. Columbia, Missouri
    You're basically Ann Arbor, but without all those pesky people I know (and hotter summers).
  6. Schenectady, New York
    Pros: Cool job, cool apartment, nice trees, one really great bar. Cons: Inconvenient liquor laws, bullshit toll roads, evil ice patch of death that broke my ankle.
  7. Georgetown, Kentucky
    Pretty enough, or whatever.
