In this game, you post a brief description of the area that you live in and the pros and cons about living there.

Place I live: In the middle of nowhere in South-east Montana. I'm 18 miles from the nearest town and flat prairy surrounds me on all sides.

Pros: Beautiful Scenery, Not bothered very often, plenty of places to hide bodys...wait! Did I just say that out loud?

Cons: Being 65 miles from the nearest Wal-Mart makes me behind the times in gaming, I'm often stuck at home on weekends, prairy makes easy prairy fires...

Novato, California.
Pros: Beautiful nature, deer wandering into your backyard, wildlife such as red-tailed hawks perching on your fence..

Cons: Sticky heat. Dry heat is for me, sticky heat isn't. And it never even frosts, much less snows. :(

Oh sweet! That's where my NeoShipping series partially takes place. Lucky you!
I'm from SI NY, not telling you what SI stands for because ever since a certain member joined, I've been rather paranoid about my safety.
The city with America's only Pokemon Center is right across the bay
The scenery from my school (you can almost see Connecticut from my art room!)
A mountain in the county has the highest point on the East coast of the US after Maine
I think Christina Agulara grew up here (I dont know for sure though)

More of MY neighborhood
It's super quiet and peaceful
Our street never gets the icecream man
Our street is also a double dead-end (only one way out)
I get free golfballs and they come right onto the lawn for me (inside joke)
A perfect balance of sun and shade, forests and valleys
It's not crowded
There are mansions!

Cons: too much wanna-be gangsters
I've never even BEEN to a Walmart nevermind seen one
How overrated NYC is
In the summer, the sky is always hazy from the pollution
We get HUMID HOT summers
The roads haven't been paved in ages

Closer to my home
There are only two other girls on my block and they are snotty, stuck up SOBs
Too many hills
The lady upstairs is very annoying sometimes
We have to hear the park's stupid concerts during the summer
That's about all.
