Why so slow, AmeriCorps NCCC Livejournal Community?

 I created this account just to ponder why the board has been so slow. I enjoy reading people's discussions on here. I /really/ enjoyed reading past discussions of people from XV being all nervous together. I kind of want that while I'm in applying for AmeriCorps! I think a reason for the decline is due to facebook's page, but since I deactivated my facebook this month, I can't really participate.

Anyway, I have applied to Winter 2011 for NCCC. I'm Alex Felt. Anybody else down to revive this community's inactivity? :)


Ah, we're in the same boat then! My interview was the 10th, and I'm also waiting on a packet from them. We should both post when we receive ours so that the other person could expect theirs around the same time since we're so close to each other in the process. What state do you live in, Beauty?
Good idea! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow, but I doubt it. I'm just so impatient.

I'm from Missouri, and from what I've heard, they send you to the furthest campus away, so my fingers are crossed for Maryland.
Yeah they like to have people as far away from what they know as possible. One of these reasons is because people are less likely to quit if they're further away from home. Isn't that interesting? I think everybody is keeping their fingers crossed for Maryland. But Mississippi would also be excellent I think. :)
I'm also hopeful for tomorrow, but whooo knows.
I've lived in the South and in the Midwest, but never in New England, so that's my ulterior motive for going up there. That, and I've driven through there once before and it was rather beautiful during the fall. I'd like to go up there again. Plus most of the cities are so close to each other in New England, and those would make great weekend trips, and even greater places to go for Independent Service Projects.

Let's keep our fingers crossed for sometime this week at least. I had a bad dream a couple days ago where I got my packet. It was posted-marked a couple of days before I received it, but the letter inside was well-past the ten day mark and I freaked out.
Nothing yet from here. And yes, I want to see all the beauty that is up in the northeast. I've never been, but I've seen pictures and it just appeals to me so much. Plus, I would love to do couch-surfing over summer vacation while I'm there so I can explore the areas I haven't been sent.

Also, what a horrible dream. I worry that, from being a Californian when the stuff is sent from D.C., that I have less time than most people to get my stuff in because the distance is greater than most other states.
Nothing from me either.

And that is something I didn't think about before! That would make me worry too, but I'm sure you'll get it in time.
Yeah I'm not /too/ concerned, but I'll probably have a day or two less in the 10 day period. But I know I'll get it doen and mailed by the next day. :P
I got mine today finally! Did you get yours?
Yes I did! I'm pretty sure though we're talking both on here and on Facebook. xD
Haha I guess because your icon and name on here as Beauty it has left me thinking you're a separate person!
