Growing up here you never really know what to expect , there's a negative vibe and there's a positive. Everyday is different. You just have to do what's best for you and make the best out of it. Employment is hard nowadays , jobs not hiring, transportation is very scary you have to be careful and far as community engagement . I can say their trying. But I feel like everything can improve a lot better.
