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? :)


A revival sounds like fun. I have my interview in...13 hours or so. I'm so fricking nervous.

My name's Alyx by the way. Or at least that's what I go by.
Good luck Alyx! I'm sure you'll do fine. I think what is most important is to show that you know what you're getting yourself into, as well as show that you have a real drive for this. The rest doesn't matter that much, I think, because there is no one right answer since they want a diverse group of people in NCCC anyway.
Thanks! I hope so. I'm really excited and can't wait to actually go so I hope I get in. Where are you from? I'm from Missouri like Beauty.
California. :) I've only really traveled around the west coast and Montana, so I can't wait for any place really, because it'll all be new and exciting for me.
Same here. I've mainly stayed in the midwest. Only ever been to Illinois, Nebraska, Texas once, and DC once but I didn't get a chance to see much of the city. I would rather go to the west coast as opposed to the east coast, but anything works for me as long as I don't end up in Iowa. x.x
Do you think you might even consider deferring if you got into Iowa?
I don't know. I guess it would still be a good experience, but Ive been in this area my entire life and I'm quite sick of it.
Yeah, I understand that. Well from reading what people are saying, Iowa isn't for sure for Winter 2011, and even Vicksburg isn't certain. The only certain one is Perry Point (everyone's favorite!).

How was your interview, by the way?
Okay I think. Still waiting to see if I was waitlisted. I swear I've checked the website like 20 times today. The wait is killing me. I've never been a patient person.
Yeah it took 5 days for me to get waitlisted. And the more I think about AmeriCorps, the slowly the wait goes.
