First of all, the environment and the air are better, but I’m not used to the cold weather. Most of the people are nice. I have a lot of friends. Some of the other New Orleanians think that the school work is harder, but to me the teachers make it even easier for you.
Football is big in Texas and the teams are way more dedicated. I play for a team called the North Texas Falcons. I think we’re pretty good. I have a couple of really good friends on the team.
McKinney would be a much better place if the weather was always warm. I’m not looking forward to moving back to New Orleans because of all of the natural disasters that’s been happening. Well, other than that there’s no difference. Although I still miss my home.
