My neighborhood is not really neighborly, there's gun shots here and there, an obvious statement saying "poor" in all capital letters, and tons of fast food restaurants because parents are usually working long and tiring shifts and aren't able to cook for their kids. However, I love it here, it's what I'm used to and I have no complaints. I'm very grateful that my parents basically kill themselves to be able to provide a roof for us to live in and I am so determined to be able to make more than enough to care for them when I'm older.

I like that there is very little traffic once you get to that area and how close it is to Pearland, but the area is very loud and dangerous sometimes. I stay in the front so i don't necessarily have to deal with the danger, but there are always people on their motorcycles disrupting my sleep when they pass my window. The people that stay in my apartments are very nice and sweet, but if you take a walk down to Sunnyside Park there are always guys trying yo hit on you and thugs smoking around the pool. The amount of trash laying around is disgusting, I suggest that the city get the sewers filed since people are acting like that is their personal trash.
Not your typical ghetto. Not always having shootouts every where, although some fool will try to shoot something for no reason.
