Bloomington Reviews

Having moved here about seven years ago, I can honestly say that this small town near the I-10 freeway is as nice and boring as it can get. Getting up in the mornings are nice, when I walk to about a mile to school each morning, the colors of the sky change from a dark blue to purple, red, pink, white and finally light blue. It. Is. Beautiful.
This small town, like any other town can have it's nice moments. The people are nice or they mainly keep to themselves. The only thing that I'd like to change is the number of jobs, all the good jobs are far away into the next town, and you have to most definitely be able to drive to get to that job.
And it'd also be nice to be part of a county, we don't get as much funding as other places.
I wouldn't say where I live is the worst, there is not much to do in Bloomington. However, the people I have grown up with have made living in this area one heck of a time. I would live here again if I could do it all over. As my friends and I grew up, we always complained about how there was not much to do in this small area. So we'd makes our own fun, go on adventures, go to the movies, go hiking, or simple things like all get together at a friends house. I have made many memories living here. Although it is probably seen not as great as other areas, I can see Bloomington maintaining it's hidden adventures waiting to happen.
Once in awhile we will see or hear of crime that has happened in the area. However, it not a consistent concern. That is not to say that we do not have crime often. Mainly I will hear of break ins and things being stolen. Safety is a more difficult question to answer. Although I am not to afraid to go out at night in my area. I do have to be alert in certain areas of Bloomington and make sure I am in a safe atmosphere.
