October 1-Laura Leen So while sitting at Harvard today I started thinking about all of you and how much I miss you guys on a daily basis. With so many people moving all over the country, I really don’t want to lose touch and thought of a way that I personally think will be so fun to keep in touch/document our lives.. Are you ready for it? Are you? Are you??The United Nations blog.. called “United”Anyways, I know some of you may be thinking this is wack or corny or too much work but just think of it as documented group texts that we can share with the world. We will, of course, keep things clean since families, kids and foreigners will all be open to reading our new blog. More importantly, I think it will just be something that can keep us all in regular contact and it will be something that we can look back and read when we’re like 80 years old. So here are a few thoughts that have been developed since this idea blossomed about one hour ago.
– Pictures of our outfits for the workday, evening, special events and so on.. whatever you feel like sharing with the UN, throw it up there.
– Random funny one liners from the UN (mostly Slam).. You guys can just take a pic of your screen and boom throw it up there if you feel its worth posting
– Stories- we’ll figure out the details but maybe each of us gets one day, or two people can share if they don’t feel they have anything to post that day. When in doubt you can always type up a throw back story and just post a random convo
-Images of weekend
-Recap of any reunions/ meetups with some members (hopefully this will force us to get together more!)
-Any major announcements/accomplishments. ie: a virgin gets a boyfriend!
-Posts of random new music that we can all comment on …
Any other ideas are welcome!! We will all need to make little profiles for ourselves which will be featured on the page with some solo photo shots!Thoughts?! Comments!?
October 1– Ismete Cake: This is a wonderful idea Laura! I just need to learn how to blog lol perhaps we can do a blogging 101 course for the Albanian lol. Can I post video?! I tend to record a lot of moments in my life lol
October 1- Laura Leen: Yes, we will document your hair growth via video.. I figured you would be a regular photo/video contributor 😉
October 1- Perla Terrero: OMG!! I LOVEEEEE this idea!! I’m all in! I have been on the other side of the country wanting something like this for a while. Miss you fools!!!!!! Also Laura- coming your way the weekend of November 16th!!! SURPRISE! Can’t wait!
October 1- Laura Leen: sayyyyyyyy whatttttttttt!!!! OMG- I just peed a little.
Poonam, your first entry will be on theh Golden Corral wedding.
October 1-Laura Leen: You will also have a special events piece!
October 1-Laura Leen: You will have to read it on the blog
October 1- Laura Leen: Yes! Plus all of the events you throw.. and all of the Poonicks surprises.. You have nothing to worry about
October 1- Laura Leen: haha.. The attorney and I will work out the details.. I am going to see if my friend can help with some graphic design.. We will all be getting professional model shots.. I think the launch will be january 2013 so we can gather enough content..
Perla Terrero named the conversation: UN Blog.October 1
October 1-Laura Leen: Even better!
October 1- Laura Leen: Ismete.. gypsy wedding outfit, check!
October 1-Laura Leen: I guess we should try to be a little less offensive
October 1-Poonam Patel: Lolol fine ill just post a pic with a dot on my head lol
October 1- Laura Leen: Woop woop.. I will need a wardrobe change since im not purebred
October 1-Laura Leen: haha.. I will see! If we’re going to do it, I want it to be good.. We’ll need to brainstorm some formatting and scheduling!
Jamare- I see you. Thoughts?
October 1-Jamare Bear: There wont be much activity from this guy cuz I’m not good with these things.
October 1-Laura Leen: We will just post your random comments on group text then
October 1-Jamare Bear: I have never even been on a blog.
October 1-Laura Leen: hahaha.. You can just take pics of Arnie and pics of that ass.. post and done
October 1-Laura Leen: It can be a very small commitment Slam.. just a pic here and there
October 1-Jamare Bear: Ok I’m going to need a blog tutorial.
October 1-Sugam Langer: sorry everyone, i am just so popular that i had an early >>BIRTHDAY<< dinner date.. what can I say…actually kinda wished that if my parents were gona pic a random day to allege that it was my birth- that they would have picked one more in the middle of the month….would have given me more time to get excited and celebrate. lol laura i can imagine your blood boiling right now.
anyways…just caught up on all of this and going to be frank. maybe the best idea ever. i was thinking maybe everyone could have their own independent post day. random contributions are totally welcome but you have a day when you are required to perform.
wed-hump day (do it twice) morning slam/ evening smits
boom. UN schedule covered. sat and sun will be free for-alls and anyone can always add posts but this is your designated day once a week? commitment value low, but reward just invaluable.
also wana shot out everyone in general, thinking once the blog makes moves- thinking we will have a similar fan base to people.com, perez hilton, and tmz…but after we get that famous, can we then open our clothing store/bar lounge?!!?
ok love you kids long time. looking forward to the blog tutorial
remember all next UN reunion – oct 20th casa de langer, poonam/perl and smits you will be there in spirit! 🙂
And then unitedn8ions.com was born. Fasten your safety belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
