I love being able to have the privacy that I have because I live here, but I have always I a fascination with seeing the world and submerging myself into culture. I believe after I have become well-traveled, I will have a better appreciation of my small town home. However, as of now, I have not bee able to see a lot of the world and culture, and I believe that is what this town is lacking. It is lacking the constant movement of the city and the diversity.

As far as I been living here there isn't any police constantly around trying to stop any violence. It's a far, safe, and quite community that rarely calls for police assistance.
I come to grow and love this area for it's closeness to family and it's nice quiet atmosphere it has. You have roosters waking you up in the morning and farm life roaming around peacefully in the fields. I really don't have anything to complain about it, I just sometimes rather prefer a life style in the city sometimes but to still have the closeness of family in case anything happens and I don't feel so alone.
