Well, I've finally able to shoot back online. Here are the updates to those past events.
I am set to take the exam in October. So, I guess that ends that for now. No issues have further developed.... yet.
I quit that shit hole at the beginning of summer. So no more worries from there. Though I must say, having worked in the grocery store, I can better understand what goes on in the mentality of those still stuck in that enviroment, so the next time any of you go to a store, and the person there is a bit of an ass, understand that thier working enviroment sucks, more than you know.
Well, I took the exam last Tuesday. I studied for 4 days straight only to realise that when I got the exam, only one of the three (long ass) problems was what I studied. Holy shit. I was so upset with myself. The exam covered 1) Column design using moments and point loads, 2) Cantilever beam design (which, as I recall, I don't remember going over in class), 3) Slab Design.
Another thing, in the initial email, he had told me that there were several people whom have failed and will be taking the exam with me, I got there at ~1pm (exam starts at 2:30pm) and waited. No one showed up. I started getting nervious as if I were in the wrong room or he had forgotten. Eventually I hear his heavy asian accent bellowing in the halls, as his office was near the test room. Time passed and he was still talking, came 3:15 and FINALLY, he comes over and gives me the exam saying that he thought I was there for another professor. Dumbass. Afterwards, I asked him when will I be notified of the result. He told me next week. WTF? It's Tuesday! Only THREE problems, grade that shit now, and let me know, instead of having me on edge waiting desperatly for any result. So, I'm still waiting.....
My dear father seems to have odd episodes in his life where he believes that what he is saying makes perfect sence. It could just be that his comprehension of life goes out the window whenever he thinks. I can't help but be consumed with a little resentment for him. I find that talking to him doesn't accomplish anything nor does it make me feel any better.
My mother had to go to court for the emancipation hearings. The judge didn't show up, his secretary did. My mother had called earlier to see if she needed to bring a lawyer, she was told no. And yep, he showed up with his lawyer who, of course, did all the talking. My mother felt so stupid and became quite depressed over it and the fact that the secretary lady made it quite clear that she was on my father's side, all dependent on that fucking letter that "means nothing".
The following week, my father had a "wonderfull" idea. He plans on retiring eventually and in doing so, move back to Hungary but doesn't want to loose a home here in the US. SOOOOO, his IDEA is to have me move into his house and pay him $600/mo (half the mortgage) until he eventually moves out, then he'll sell the house to me for $300k (about half it's value). He then said that he would build a garage with an appartment over it where my mother could live in, because, "she's getting old." Mind you this is while he's still living there. He said that we could save SO MUCH money by doing that and he'll still have a home to move back into each time he ventures back to the USA. When I had asked him about the interactions of my mother and him, he said that since he works at night, and sleeps during the day, and she is the opposite, that they would never really see each other..... yea, like that makes sence. Granted I really want a garage, but I'm not willing to go down that route. He's been calling for the past several weeks, I stopped answering and am not returning his calls.
I guess that sums up the first series of episodes. I have a new issue at my new job, but, it's more of bullshit stuff and unprofessionalism that i'm sure all of you have encountered. People just being mean type of thing. I may just save that for a rainy day....
