Millie's Vids

I'm from San Bernardino but now I live in a place called Oroville California which is ten times worse not crime wise to much but more less people people who do not understand the meanings of privacy.

They love to Cyberbully and pick on the homeless and animals it s***s here and I'm strongly thinking of moving back to San Bernardino at least where I live I didn't have people constantly staring at me through my windows taking awful pictures and videos of me as i walk down the street!

Anywho you should do worst towns to live in in North California! Places like Bakersfield and this pitiful little town called Live Oaks but oh well I guess it's ok to live in Oroville if you like salmon!
