Ever since I have graduated high school and have had a completely new and eye-opening experience to a new area at Misericordia University in Dallas, PA I decided I never wanted to live in this area with my own family. I realized our education system is very very poor, when I saw how many other college freshmen and students were better prepared than I was. They had more opportunities, were offered more college preparatory courses, and even some college courses that I was not offered. Many of my friends were able to get out of taking some of the general courses that I was stuck with taking my first and second years of college. I have been a guide to my younger sister to help prepare her for entering college with the courses she selects to take in high school. Many of the guidance counselors and administrators are not supportive. I have realized many of the teachers are their for their tenure and to be able to retire and that is it. There are very few to none that actually genuinely care about their students and what they are learning, as well as if what they are learning will be useful and helpful to them in the future. The quality of the people in my hometown area is not what I am looking for in my own future. I plan to not return to living in this area when I am able to begin my own life and family after college. I feel that there is a lot of disrespect where it is not needed. Every one person is out for themselves and does next to nothing to help someone else or to lend a hand. Also, the intelligence level in my current community is something that bothers me. People are set in their ways and are resistant to change and new ideas and concepts. Their arguments are based simply on their past and opinion rather than facts and valid information. This being said, disrespect comes in here again where it can not be justified. In our school district the cost of living and amount of taxes my parents have to pay as drastically increased and many politics seem to be involved.

Small town with mom n pop stores, small chain stores such as Coles Hardware but no retail stores and only one small grocery store. Restaurants are Subway, Dunkin Donuts, a seafood restaurant and a small family owned one. Gas stations/convenience stores are Harvey's and Sunoco. No stores, malls, hangouts, skating, bowling or any other recreation.
Crime is not a word you normally hear in my town. The worst crimes around here are normally young kids stealing gum from a gas station. I feel safe walking around my town at any time of day because we have local police that are very reliable and enforce strict rules as far as curfew and other safety issues. I think it is fair to say that I live in one of the more trusted towns in my county.
