Or anonymity during polarization with no direct affiliation with anything? I'd have no qualms with that by any means.

Anywho, I guess I have 2 posts to write up now. Community of education and cafe/commune/sanctuary/advocacy suggestions. Fun stuff.

I've come up with a few ideas for the ...cafe/restaurant/thing... should I wait until you've posted your posts or start a thread on it?

I'm busy and disinterested.  It seems like we have most stuff figured out we just need to wait.  I still have four years of college ahead of me (at the Kansas city arts institute).  I still want to make this commune but I know it's really far off.  I kind of regret starting this forum and getting people all excited about it because now there's going to be a really long awkward time in which we will likely fall apart.

That's partly my reason for wanting to start the urban commune earlier than the rural one.  If we can get that going in a year or two, that'll hopefully tide us over till we can start the rural commune.

I'm feeling that way about it, as well, Zee. We also need to save up a bit of money for the starting costs of anything in general.

My grandma is willing to rent out her house for a decent price, if I remember correctly, and we could start out there (2-3 br (not including living room, haha), 1-2 bath? mobile home). Entry-level job market is easy and plentiful (and I'll have a BA in psych to jump in with. I'm assuming I won't be the only one with a degree?) in Vegas, and if we want to do the restaurant/cafe/nightclub/venue thing Vegas is one of the best places. If we do the sanctuary/advocacy thing (I'll explain soon, I promise!) then we have a means of obtaining non-profit status. I'm willing to jump in immediately after college, and if I have money saved up, so much the better.

So, to put it short, 1) if we can find 1 or 2 places near to each other and anybody else is interested, who would be up for trying Vegas (or Henderson)? 2) Who would be up for operating a sanctuary/advocacy program (not shelter: sanctuary. Shelters are much harder to operate.)? 3)And who would be up for running a cafe/restaurant/nightclub/venue? 4) Who wants to get this started as soon as possible (as in, since I can't start until 2011, anybody who wants to start immediately and lay out a framework in an agreed upon location is free to).

1)I would.
2)I would.
3)I would.
4)I want to.

Surprise surprise, these are my suggestions and I'm willing to throw in. If anybody has other suggestions, ideas, plans, etc., please speak up?


Oh, and Glor, don't feel bad, and don't worry too much. So far as I can tell, even when discussion was up, Zee, Yvette (Selkie), yourself, vov, and myself are the only very active people, so 5 is a good starting number.

Agreed, 5 seems like a good number for starting a community.

1) Yes
   By 1-2 places near each other, do you mean housing places?  Or housing near the cafe, etc?
2) Yes
3) Yes
   Though can I maybe eventually run an Aikido dojo out of the same place?  Very Happy
4) Yes.
   Soonest, assuming I do graduate college and don't drop out, which I've been seriously considering, would be next summer, 2010. (perfect timing?)  If I do graduate, I'll have a Computer Science BA, which should be pretty good in the job market.
