It's not a terrible place to live, but a lot of work could be done around here to make it nicer and more appealing. Some of the streets are trashy and even some of the houses are, but it doesn't seem to bother as many people as it should. There are areas where it looks so nice, but it costs way to much for an income like mine to afford then the ones i could afford to live in are complete trash. Areas like that really don't need to be like that, but no one will take care of it. You'll mostly meet a lot of stuck up people around here that only care for themselves. Every now and again you can find a nice, sincere person. Depends on what type of neighborhood you're in I guess.
