I have just got in to the University of Toledo and I am going to need to hurry up and start looking for Toledo apartments near the campus. From what I understand there are a good many rough neighborhoods in the city and I am wondering if it is going to be hard to find a place that my Mom is not going to freak out over. That is a big problem because she worries over every little thing and the last place I had was not in that bad of an area, but she was convinced that it was Hell’s Kitchen or one of those places that you read about in the history books when they talk about slums and social problems. It is not that big of a deal to me if it is not the perfect place. I can look after myself for the most part and most of all I am not going to be out in the mix as they say.
If you are out on the corner at 4 AM a lot more bad things will happen to you than if you are laying in bed asleep at 11 PM. Of course I am not going to be a hermit and I might go out for a beer, but I am not out howling at the moon all night long. It is a different type of person who usually gets in trouble or stabbed or shot, some one who is out there looking for bad things to happen perhaps not, but some one who is not hiding from that sort of trouble very hard. It is not likely to have an effect on me, but of course I would rather live in a nice area close to the campus and all the other stuff I need.
