No news on the job front, other than I finally got paid for October. No idea if I am getting a November check or if founder is hoping we'd forget about it.
On a call last week it became very apparent that stuff won't change unless annoying co-worker and I threaten to quit.
I ended up inadvertently bouncing my rent check - but I caught it and warned my landlord - because of an ill-timed bank to bank transfer. I'm sick of dealing with this shit.
I've been putting out resumes and posted my resume to a shitty career site in hopes of getting a bite or two. Only got a thanks but no from a small local consulting outfit (which is fine).
My car got a big dent in the rear bumper last week when it was parked outside of my place. No one owned up to it, so I put a note on my car asking if anyone saw anything.
My next door neighbor narc'd, and said she thought it was one of the milennials on the end of my block with a big jeep. He's got silver paint on the side of his front bumper.
Since no one saw, there's nothing I can really do. I don't have the energy to argue with anyone else -- especially a shitty neighbor -- right now.
LO got into college - the state school in our old home state. She was virtually assured of admittance, but still, one less worry. In addition, she got into the most selective academic program on campus. (I think the only reason why the program is unranked nationally is because of the undergraduate admittance requirements of the university as a whole.) But all good, still. We'll hear of possible monetary awards next month.
The other good (but might have come too late news): LO finally got the score she was capable of earning on her ACT test from last month. Which means she's in the hunt for the schools she thought were reach schools.
The bad part is that the scoring for the ACT is going slow, and her early application for the dream school in the southern city known for it's food and music and culture was due on Sunday. The school doesn't require the writing part of the test (which she took because other schools require it). LO didn't submit her in hand, lower SAT scores, because...so her application is waiting on whenever the ACT people score her test. She has an email thread going on with an admissions counselor with the question of "if my score is late but everything else is in, will you still consider my application as early?" I don't know if she's heard back yet on that.
The other unfortunate part of the late ACT test is that she can't submit her score to the school she got admitted to for scholarship consideration.
Also, apparently, LO was saying that if she they separated out her ACT score from the writing/language parts, apparently her ACT score would be higher. I have no idea how/why that works.
In other LO news, I confronted her about her weekend sleepover activities this past weekend; after we knew about her college admittance, her taking the SATs again and her completing the application to dream school.
It was a perfect storm of her not giving a shit at all.
Let's just say we argued.
"Of course I lied to you, you wouldn't let me do it."
"You should be happy that I'm not partying up here!"
"You can't go to his coach and ruin his life!"
"I don't see what's wrong with what I'm doing!"
"I'll be 18 in a few months, what's the big deal?"
She disappeared again this weekend on Saturday, swearing she was with girlfriends. And turned off Find My iPhone. And we're just growling at each other.
Someone needs to get a job when the child support runs out, which is when hockey season ends coincidentally.
I oh so look forward to dealing with this shit for the next 9 months. I hope she enjoys getting interrogated by her aunties this holiday season.
So, there's that.
