    If I was ever given the chance to go back in time, and either move to Paris or move somewhere else, I would gladly still choose Paris, living here has probably been one of the greatest things in life. I basically grew up in Paris, I met life long friends here, my first real relationship, first heart break. Paris has given so many great opportunities to myself, and my family. In the future, I definitely see myself coming back to Paris after I move for college, and etc. to retire, or raise my family here.
    The area is nice, it's just not being worked to its full potential. We need a broader selection of businesses other than fast food places, banks and grocery stores
