Strategy-X has been back up for a little bit, now, so it seems everything's been worked out.
Now, some bad news: I haven't heard from Tom_Andrews, the coder, for 3+ weeks...so....I'll start looking for another coder soon.
REALLY bad news: My summer holiday is winding down...about three weeks left...so...after school starts, I honestly don't know what will happen with the mod.
A little tie-in with my summer job hunt:
All summer, I've been looking for a part-time job...the first place I applied I was turned down for "someone more qualified". WTF! How qualified do you need to be to run a cash register? The whole process of applying and interviewing at this place took 8 weeks, 4 of which cut into my summer. 8 weeks to tell me "no". Great, so thats 1/3 of summer gone....
The next month (after 1/3 my summer is gone) I applied to 2 more places. It's been 5+ weeks now (and still no response), so we're cutting into the last of my summer. And also, during the initial days of the last 1/3 of summer, I re-applied to the first place, since they had signs stating they needed applicants. And I've now applied to a 4th place. It's been 1 week so far for both, but I'm still optimistic.
However, I figure since most college people are leaving soon, many positions will be open. This means that I can (might) earn some money (to go towards a new PC, and then towards my college education) over the school year...but then, this makes my schedule: school, work, eat, sleep, school, work, eat, sleep, etc.
As you can see, less time than ever. I find myself wishing more and more that there would be about 20 years of summer.
Ah, well...I'll make it through somehow...
wow you suck at job hunting
it took me all summer to find one and i put in at least 15 applicatoins
you gotta take what you can get, beggers cant be choosers
(by the way im a burger flipper!)
