My Way of Life

My neighborhood wasn’t really all that dangerous growing up.  However with that being said it still wasn’t the safest, not by far.  As a kid my house was broken into two times each time they robbers stole more.  I didn’t realize what was going on at the time because I was so young.  Now that I’m able to look back on it I realize how traumatic that experience could’ve been.  I remember after the two incidents we finally decided to get ADT Home Security.  After we had that installed we never had a problem like that again.

My neighborhood had my elementary school perfectly in the center of.  Which was convenient because we lived right across the street from the school.  It’s really crazy thinking about it now because despite how close we lived from the school I rarely ever walked there.  My mom always felt the need to drive me to and from school.  Honestly it was pretty annoying because all of the kids there would tease me for it.  Although I didn’t really mind it too much because that helped me to meet new people.

The school that I went to had a playground outside it for recess.  The playground was only supposed to be used during school hours and was only meant for the kids that attended that school.  Not many people paid attention to that, if any did at all.  That’s not saying that the kids in my neighborhood were rebellious but they could be “hard-headed” sometimes
