The Eye Reviews

1
It is an okay area ,because unlike other states in the country we don't get too much bad weather the worse we have is the snow and its easy to deal with after living in it all your life. The crime rates are still high and I hate to be around all the killings and bad things that's going on, If I could have chose to where I could stay growing up it would have been somewhere a little warmer or not in the exact area I grew up in .It was horrible but it showed me how to be responsible and be brave and a better person today I won't back down from nothing and I want to get far in life and achieve my goals to help my whole family get out of the city.
