states meme

Killing a few minutes while I wait for laundry to finish...
... and because it's been a long time since I let myself waste time on the net doing silly pointless things :)

At first glance, the visited states thing looked as shallow in meaning as most of the quizzes that proliferate here (though the answers are often fun nonetheless, I don't find them worth posting). What does it mean to map out the states you've been to or haven't ever been to? The distinction between a state I never visited and one I drove through once, doesn't seem as significant as the distinction between a state I drove through once and a state I've spent weeks and done lots of things in. So I started playing with it to map out some things that might be more telling about my life, and came up with these:

(I consider all airports to be part of the separate state of Airport. If I've been somewhere only by being at an airport there, and never left the airport, then I don't consider it having been there, at all.)


First, the states I've never been to at all: Collapse )
States I've visited and actually done something in: Collapse )

Some of those things I've done in some of those states...

Did I leave out any categories I should have tried to map?
