My experience here has been bittersweet. I love the small town life, but there is absolutely nothing here to keep our community together. Everyone here speaks but likes to keep it moving. I am originally from Nacogdoches Texas and I'm use to being welcomed anywhere I may go. Not many times have I lost track of time because someone I’ve never met just wants to hold a conversion. I love the school system here. I do not feel that the tax money is being used towards our children and their education in ways that it counts. I do believe some of the best teachers give their all daily for our youth. We must come together as a community and build our city up one street at a time.
My mother and I moved to the address we are now when I was around 10 or 11 years old. My mom and dad had just divorced and it was a nice house that I actually showed my mother one day as we were riding by looking for houses in her price range. Our neighborhood is mostly family oriented with small houses on our street and most of the neighbors know each other. We don't have a lot of people that stay home during the day and like my mom most of them work. We have a neighborhood watch and we all look after each other's personal property when our neighbors are away. I live in a small town where everybody know everbody and it was a nice town to grow up in but attending school in another state is what I would like so that I can experience some type of change.
I attend the local college. Most restaurants and businesses are withing walking distance. The people are friendly and helpful.
