Is this community alive? [Nov. 9th, 2008|01:22 pm]
Kansas State University

Was roaming at LJ and realized I was in this community. I've seen the last post has been in April. Are there any alive LJ users at K-state? Was just wondering...

Are you going through the JMC school? I graduated from it in May.

Yeah, working on graduate studies in strategic communication, though the school is better known for journalism. I've never had a chance to choose my school. )) We'll see how it goes, initially was a bit disappointed with the program, but it seems now I am starting to appreciate how it turns out. )) What are you doing now?

Liked your avatar. I am a relatively new to Kansas, so gradually getting used to this fluctuation of temperatures between day and night. Just like on Mars.

LOL!! It's actually a line from Stargate SG-1, but I find it rather fitting...

You're right in that odd no-humidity-yet-just-enough part of the world now...
*points and laughs*

Okay, I'd give up Florida weather for Kansas in a heartbeat, really...

I knew it was some catchy phrase "you are not in Kansas anymore". It was actually used in a leaflet, distributed to Americans travelling overseas. It was part of the Deptartment of State public diplomacy efforts for US citizens to project a better image of the country when travelling abroad, as stated "becoming a global citizen". I don't know something made me laugh when I saw Kansas mentioned there.

Do you recall "Predator-2"? When they landed in the jungles of the Amazon river one GI said: "just like in Kansas". It's a nice place, though. I spent a year in central Texas (11 years ago) and have to say I like it better in Manhattan.

You'll never escape the WoO references ANYWHERE! I recently moved to Kentucky and I cannot count the number of times someone has said, "Well, you ain't in Kansas no more, Dorothy!"

Well, fortunately not so many people back home know about the Wizard of the Oz. We had a Russian equivalent of that, and there was no Kansas origin there. But, indeed, people know nothing about Kansas, aside that it is somewhere far away from everything.
