Normalcy - Charles

I'm finally starting to situate myself very nicely back in Seattle. After a sweet see-you-later of sorts to the rest of the crew members, I come home to an empty house and an uncertain future. After two months of a fast-paced life of activity fairs, speeches, interviews, and sightseeing, it all seems so surreal to see it finally at an end. I don't have any more obligations from this day forward; my life is now an empty slate. I have so many plans as what I want to do with my future, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to go through with any of them yet. I think my best bet now is to find a job here in Seattle and save enough to move wherever life takes me.

It's weird, not being around the rest of the crew. We were so quickly placed in a situation where we had to work, sleep, eat, and drive together for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and now, just as quickly, they're gone. I'm very impressed that we managed not to kill each other. As a matter of fact, I'd like to think that we became really good friends. I'm going to miss Ashley's laughter, Geetha's impeccable acumen, Aaron's dance moves, and Jamie's cooking. I mean, I'll still see them around -- we're planning on a little reunion of sorts in Boise this summer -- but to not be able to indulge in a random inside joke whenever we wanted is going to take some getting used to.

Like Geetha, I'm still going through the processing. While I sincerely believe that Generation MIX was a huge success in raising national attention and dialogue on mixed-race issues in America today, I don't think we'll be able to see any sort of quantifiable measurement of impact until months, years into the future. It will be interesting to observe what comes out on the national level because of programs like Generation MIX...

Well, I don't know exactly what you guys are about... but I'm looking into it right now. I think it would be cool for our campus to bring something like this in. Last year, we brought black-Jewish(white) issues to the table with a guy from the Real World. He was on with the season of Puck. Well, I'm going to be coming here for the next few days researching in my free time, and looking on several of the other sites. Good job guys. Later

Thank you for letting me post, I have come by in search of information. I was told that blogs have some of the best and most relevent information for any given subject. Mine happens to be a cat clock wall gift website that has anything from jewelry to horse art. So I am looking for new products and information based on cat clock wall to offer my customers and possibly some good marketing ideas for my website.
I won't steal your content but just looking for good ideas.

Websites that I have and all the work involved in keeping several of them going and updating blogs I am at best posting once a month.

I have enjoyed your blog and am thankfull to be able to sort of pick your brain without actually bothering you.

Blogs stand out because a lot of them people don't try and sale so much as to write about things that they enjoy or what they like to do.

Most of which comes out in there writing.

We want to grow and build my website to be the best and know I have much to learn, and fix to even come close.

We have been online for less then a year now, so yes we are very young.


I hope you come by to visit. I am not trying to sale you anything but would love to here if you have any ideas.

Thank you.

Hello, I have a fairly new website that has been online for about 8 months. I am doing research as per a fellow website owner suggested to gather information about delivering good content to my visitors. I lokked at alot of websites that are in my area child horse jewelry . But was told to search the blogs that I could gather more information then just people trying to sale you something. I have done the internet MLM thing and really got disgusted at the whole thing. So my wife and I thought since we love horses we should build a website around that. We have done preety good so far but I always want to improve. I didn;t realize it would be so time consuming though. But we love it and hope to improve and offer some of the best recourses and products available. Hence the search for content new products and information about what we have.

Thank you for your BLOG.

Regards,
