Some stuff about my community

Frankly, I have mixed feelings about where I live. Generally, it's easy to navigate, and most of the people are friendly. On the other hand, most neighborhoods in the community have an irritating habit of competing with each other. That is to say that if one neighbor decides to improve his or her house, the neighbors on either side of that person must immediately improve upon their dwelling. The end result of this phenomenon is that one can usually find a few construction trucks around, and traffic gets impeded. The most irritating part of this is that, aside from a persons normal aquatences or friends, I cannot imagine who would even notice, or for that matter, care, that a house is being built upon. The entire thing leaves one with a feeling that they have wandered into a shallow community where money and size equates to more then kindness, even though this is not the case.
