Prichard Alabama Is Just Horrible

I mean where can I start? I don't get why I wasted so many good years living here in Prichard for some reason. I know there are times where you need to sacrifice, but jobs, housing prices, and safety? I think not.

Everyday I walk alone and I am afraid for my life. I know this may sound creepy, but there is too much on the news nowadays and I just can't wait to get a car. Other than that, you can find a few good spots to eat over on Telegraph Road.

I like the Chickasaw Creek because fishing is a very important way for me to make money. I struggle with simple tasks, so fishing along this creek enables me to be at peace with nature and greet it with the secrecy of a mite, spending time in a hay bath. I don't spend much time at any of the parks, but the creek is home to me and I love it dearly.
