The community I live in really isn't a community, it is just a neighborhood that has had the same people in it for years. However when we do have new people come to the neighborhood they usually aren't the best kind of people because I do not live in the best area. Which is why I am attending school and applying for scholarships. I am trying to better myself. But not just for me, for my dad and my twin brother as well.

I live in Humble so downtown is only about 40 minutes away, down there their are tons of things to do like go to a football, baseball or basketball game. We have the rodeo once a year for a few months. Galveston beach is an okay attraction minus the murky water.
Most of the houses in my neighborhood have been there for 20+ years so are pretty run down. There is not really any gardens, no fancy landscape just mowed yards.... If even that.
