You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

It's always a bit awkward when spending so much time with people you've just met, especially when THEY all know each other. I think having to always be conscience of your manners, cleaning habits, (can't throw clothes on the floor, or play basketball with your garbage can) and always being 'on' if you will. No matter how fabulous the people are, I'm sure it can get exhausting having to 'start over' so often.

It's hard trying to adjust to (or figure out) someone else's schedule. When is ok to eat, sleep, watch tv, go to bed, wakeup? If you want a long soak in the tub are you tying up the bathroom for too long? When you try to help out you usually just get in the way but you don't want to just sit and do nothing. It's so tiring to me to even stay with friends and relatives that I prefer to stay in hotels. I'd go nuts spending a year with strangers.

Knowing what the expectations are or their routines...

I think that cultures would be the hardest to learn.

Comfort of my own bed. If I don't get a good night's sleep, I can survive one day...but any more than that. As long as the "living with strangers" is a constant location, I'd be good. I'd adapt.

Having lived with 3 people I practically didn't know for the past 2 months, I can say from experience that the hardest thing was adjusting to their set of family values, which quite differed from the set of beliefs I had grown up around. It's one thing to be friends with people who see things differently than you; it's a whole different story with it comes to how those varying viewpoints affect daily life with them. It boils down to how they see work ethic, what constitutes family bonding time and how important that is, how important is health and how does that translate into food choices, is cleanliness a priority, how does one show gratitude, what is the responsibility of a family member, how does one model respect for another, CONFLICT MANAGEMENT, etc etc etc

I'm a people person all the way. Just hope they would be able to adjust to me.
