First draft. trying to really dig in and create some thread of story here but my idea is to make the writers to come off as very earnest types who are really looking for someone to do awesome stuff with and honestly thing someone like this will fit the description. Gonna work on it some more but this is my first go at it.
We are two friends in Austin looking to expand our cultural knowledge and widen our social circle. We are a dynamic and diverse group whose daily activities include going to shows, shopping at Whole Foods and walking our dogs.
You are a black person, (although we don’t discriminate, any particularly sassy folks should also apply) who is open-minded and eager to join a new group. Maybe you just moved here and don’t know anyone yet or perhaps you have noticed that most of the other black people you meet here are homeless and feel the need to seek new options. Either way, we would LOVE to have you in our group.

So, story ideas!
1.The Only Black Person You Know -- A playful narritive piece, kind of like a job description of what it requires to be this person, what's involved and some of the measurements of success. Inspired by interactions with my friends here in Austin.
2. PDAD- Post dog adoption disorder -- I adopted a dog last June and fell into this crazy depressive state and didn't know how to handle it. I felt tied down, overwhelmed and just stuck. It was INSANITY and no one believed me. I wanted to write it kind of like an article in a medical journal.
3. Walmart VS. Whole Foods -- The internal battle I go through between honoring new habits/thoughts and ideas about food and eating local with the warm and the sense of home I feel when I go to a Walmart. I want to be cool Austin girl but I identify more with my small suburb in GA.
Thanks guys! Can't wait to read your ideas!
