The neighborhood is full of people on drugs. Drug abuse and addiction is very prevalent throughout the community. Also, there is a lot of violence. Recently, a corner store was broken into to. There are always cops flying around everywhere. The neighborhood needs to change and become more safe.

We have every season. We have cold winters, rainy springs, hot summers, and cool falls. Because of that, my wardrobe completely depends on the season. The worst natural disaster we've had would probably be a blizzard, which wasn't too bad.
I like the neighbors, everyone speaks.
