I used to live in Phoenix, Arizona so moving here was a big change. At first I did not like it but it has grown on me and I love it. I love living in this small town. I see myself living somewhere bigger but when I decide to settle down move back.

It's a small town so if anything bad were to happen the cops arrive fast. Just like anyother city we have trouble with crime and gangs. However we don't hear much about them.
