As much as everybody complains that they hate Livingston, it's not that bad of a town. The crime rate is relatively low (though it's been getting worse because the ghetto kids from Newark and West Orange have been moving in). Even though there are many cliques (Asians, japs, blacks and hispanics, etc.) and you would think we're just a rich stuck up town, people are surprisingly nice to each other. There are rarely any cases of "bullying" and whatever. Livingston is also close to NYC and the shore, and at least we have a movie theater, ice skating rink, and a few restaurants. There are three malls near us - Livingston Mall, Willowbrook Mall, and Short Hills Mall. Nobody ever goes to the Livingston Mall because the Short Hills Mall has the expensive name brand stores.
Most people here are obnoxiously rich. Kids whose families have airplanes and private jets are considered a little richer than everyone else, but it's not that out of the ordinary. You look at the student parking lot and see Range Rovers, Audis, and BMWs, and then look at the teachers parking lot and see regular cars like Hondas and Fords. If you don't own at least one pair of True Religion jeans or something designed by Tory Burch, you aren't a true Livingstoner. And by Livingstoner, I mean LivingSTONER.
Everyone here does drugs because they have nothing better to do with their money, and if anything ever happens, their parents can hire the best lawyers and use money to pay their way out.
People here are also really smart. The top 10% always has a 4.0+ GPA, and if not, then that year's graduating class was stupid. There is always at least one kid going to Harvard, and if not, then it's a shame. We always win science and math competitions. The intelligent bunch is mainly made up of Asians (including Indians), then Jews. The dumb people are usually the guido kids who end up going to MOCO, or as they like to call it, CCM because it sounds better than MOCO even though its the same thing.
Livingston parents are hell to teachers and the Board of Eduacation. They call to complain about everything.
Livingston High School recently had a brand new Science Wing and gym (aka Fitness and Wellness Center lol wtf?) built. The Science Wing was necessary because the old science equipment was out of date, but the 50 million new computers and automatic lights and shit weren't. LHS just built it to look good. The gym was perfectly fine too, but the school just wasted a couple hundred million dollars on it so that our sports teams look better, even though most teams suck (except for like tennis and track which don't play in the gym).
When the LHS football team finally won the championship this year, everyone went crazy about it because our team sucks balls and it finally accomplished something.
One Day, at Livingston High School...
Hey, why aren't you wearing your True Religion jeans?
Oh, that's because I'm wearing my seven's today!
If they didn't cost at least $200, they're not good enough.
Don't worry, mine cost even more!
