The experience living in my neighborhood has proven to be lackluster. People seem very comfortable and reclusive.

In one specific instance, there happened to be a hit ordered on my neighbor. It took at least 30 minuets for the police to come.
It truly depends on each individuals work schedule. That normally makes or breaks a persons diet.
