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.

In the place I live in it's pretty calm, not many distractions or drama. I'd say maybe a bit lackluster due to very low interactions with neighbors who are usually indoors. There's a nice variety of food places around like Burger King and Popeye's. Overall a nice place to live.
I've lived in this neighborhood for over +15 years and I've enjoyed every minute of it. Sunnyside is a quaint neighborhood on the Southeast side of Houston Texas. It serves as the neighborhood between small town Pearland and downtown Houston.
