i really just can't bring myself to do my homework that's due in an hour and a half. it's really terrible. ever since i found out that the portfolio is going to be two thirds of our grade, i can't convince myself to do any of the other, minor work.
well, i have two americorps positions in the works. one in denver, and one in raleigh. i've interviewed for the denver one, but haven't heard back, and i haven't had a real interview yet for raleigh, but i've had two nice informal chats with people about the position.
denver would be with mile high youth corps, doing a lot of community work, ecological restoration, and so on. pros: denver is a really neat city, and my friend kendall lives there. cons: manual labor, and not much money to live on.
raleigh is a position with north carolina campus compact, which is an organization that works on college campuses to involve students in the communities. planning break trips, service learning, conferences, scholarships, and so on. the title is something like "director of community involvement", and i would report to the dean of students. pros: amazing job, living stipend and housing stipend. cons: i've never heard much cool stuff about raleigh.
so it really comes down to city versus job. two months ago i would have said that i wanted the seattle position, hands down. two weeks ago i would have said denver, no question. now... i'm leaning towards raleigh. which is funny, because i've had my heart set on the west coast for so long. now i might be going east coast instead.

I know how you feel. What's the point of this little "theme" exercise? I did it anyway. I'm so bored at work.
I vote Raleigh. I'm sure stuff happens. If not, there will always be cool cities.
