I'm liking Caldwell more and more.  College's are good, it'd have to be fairly large for it to support three of them.  Plus, it seems to be much cheaper...

Yes. Like house. I just moved into a studio apartment for 180 a month including utilities and 2 types of wireless internet. The entire downtown area is wired with wi-fi Very Happy

Two problems with Caldwell: jobs are scarce and grad school stuff is relatively non-existant.

Two benefits: cheap housing and a fluctuating housing market (as well as housing developments that have turned into ghost towns meaning lots of open houses next to each other, last I heard).

The "Division of Labor" post brought an important thought to my mind...

Just to make sure we don't get totally sidetracked from everything we have previously discussed, we should probably be thinking of how to implement our ideas for the rural commune into the urban commune.

For example, growing as much of our own food as possible (for example, get a trash can and you can make a super-super-super-easy method of harvesting a large quantity of potatoes), working toward making our homes off-the-grid, using natural light and generating as much of our own belongings as possible which seemed to be the idea behind the commune in the first place, etc.

This also makes the urban commune our testing grounds for anything we are considering implementing in the rural commune, if the plan is still to move onto our own land.

I'm really starting to like the Caldwell idea. Actually moving there would be a bit difficult since it's so far away and I'd need help from anyone living in CA.

I may have missed it but if we are seriously thinking about the urban commune, would this be before or after college? I've been scanning through the threads so probably missed it. If it's during college hopefully there's a college with journalism around or a newspaper that has low standards Wink

The lack of jobs sounds worrying, if we're going to be paying rent and there aren't many jobs we could find ourselves in a lot of trouble. I still have about 2k for college though I'm planning on signing up for scholarships and aid next semester.

Id like to propose, on a minor sidenote, that we all start some sort of group on an online game for now and get steady interaction going in that capacity. That way we can get to know each other in a non-intellectual manner.


Berior and I liked this idea. I suggested a D&D forum game since it doesn't require us to all be on at the same time and is something we seem to all like (as far as I remember). There's a website that supports D&D forum games that we can set up a private game on if we like.

Beyond that, all I can think of that doesn't have a monthly subscription is Guild Wars, but you do have to buy it and it runs pretty slow on my poor lappy. If there's any simple free online games...

As for Rev's roommate comment I should talk about the kind of roommate I am.

Berior and I are pretty messy though we'll generally clean up after ourselves outside of private spaces...well at least I do and I'm pretty sure he does too. I'm a pretty easygoing person and don't cause drama and try to be as polite and un-annoying as possible. I don't mind helping out and generally do whatever I'm asked but I have a REALLY bad memory so I tend to forget what to do very quickly.  Embarassed

I was figuring after college.  I'll be done in anywhere from 1-2 years, and would be willing to jump straight into this.  Another part to this is that not all of us are going to graduate at the same time (i think), so we might want to think about that...

Does it have to be 4.0?  3.5 ftw, plz?  Very Happy

Does ANYONE like 4? XD Berior and I certainly don't lol.

I guess starting after college is fine, though you're right some might take longer than 1-2 years...maybe some of us start out in 2 years then the rest trickle in?

Lol.

I think it might be a good idea to have at least three-four people (minimum) to start with, and the rest can come whenever it works for them (come for college, or come after college, either way).  That way we can have a stable base when the rest arrive.

Sooo, yeah.  Basically what you said, Selkie!  Very Happy

So, besides me, who else can/is willing to start in a couple years?
