My Neighborhood

Mehnaz Gohar and Khali McCalla

Moving to new places is a huge problem for me. However, in my life there are some decision that I have to make for my kids education, so whether I like it or not I have to do it. In the past few years, I moved to Seattle from Pakistan. It was a very difficult for me to leave my family. Even though, my new neighborhood has some disadvantages, there is a lot of advantages of coming here.

There are a lot of things I like about my neighborhood. My favorite thing about my neighborhood is that there is a grocery store right besides me. It’s very peaceful and quiet. My neighbors are really nice to each other.

There are also some things that I don’t like about my neighborhood. One thing is whenever I go to a party or somewhere outside when I come back home there is no parking, so I have to park my car really far from my house. So I always come back just a little bit early to find a parking spot near my house.

As you can see, there are some good and bad things about my neighborhood. My neighborhood has a lot of people; so parking is the only small problem. But this is nothing compared to the advantages. I am happy that I am in this neighborhood because I feel safe here.
