It's what you make it. There is not much to do in terms of entertainment but you learn to make your own fun. There are malls, movie theaters, great food, and good music. The education system needs improvement and so does the criminal justice system. The area is expanding though and getting lots of new attractions that make it more appealing. Overall, the experience is okay.

The area that i live in is very great. The neighbors are very friendly and easy- going and its overall a safe place to live. There's a great, award- winning elementary and a nice family park in the middle of my neighborhood. My neighborhood is overall a very quiet place to live, except when kids are outside playing:)
The governor is a great man, but he is not focused on the better of Louisiana. He is more focused on the run for president. That truly is not fair to the people of Louisiana, who constantly are having budget cuts. Both of my parents work for the state and when cuts come around they are the ones most affected. I have come to see the wrong within politicians, and I will speak up about my views. Our governor was a genuine main when elected in and as the years continue he cares for achieving higher goals but not seeing the struggle in our state. Our president pushes for law to be passed that do oppose my views, such as healthcare. I respect both these men, but I do not see them as acceptable leaders. As a citizen in Louisiana, an average female, I want this state to better and thrive. The state is not going to with an absent governor and the country will fall apart with a president who has almost destroyed relations with many countries. The representatives for state and local do try and focus on the better of the state, but it does not always happen.
