Reasons today sucks MAJOR ASS. I'm about to explode [Apr. 3rd, 2006|09:58 am]
Amanda
1-I'm laid off!! Matt's under probation for giving out too many hours, so they're making him only have like, three people working a day. Yeah. And I'M not one of them. Just when I really need to start hoarding the money...SURPRISE!!--no work til May!!

2-Got an e-mail back from Kean University, and was all like, "YAY! The mixup's gonna be solved! I'll be able to sleep peacefully tonight!". But, then I look at the e-mail and it's this really short, mean comment saying they need OFFICIAL documentation and my CHSPE transcript doesn't have a raised seal so it's not OFFICIAL, and to send it IMMEDIATELY. So, I called the CHSPE and ask if they can send one with a seal...but apparently they DON'T, and the Office of Education considers what they sent to be completely official, and Kean should accept it because it's OFFICIAL and that's how they send them...so, something that's already official can't be made more official! So yeah. Here we go again..

3-So now I have transfer and money and school and moving and horrible weather and work, and trying to get something sorted out that I can't even sort out because nothing was wrong in the first place and it took days to actually get a hold of somebody...and my APPLICATION STILL HASN'T STARTED THE 3-4 WEEK APPLICATION PROCESS...and the DEADLINE FOR PRIORITY HOUSING IS MAY 1ST.....and I don't even know where I'll be living this summer, so that's still up in the air...just like the REST OF my future right now...

I JUST WANT ONE FRICKIN' LESS THING HEAPED UP ON MY PLATE, AND GUESS WHAT? THERE'S MORE...NOT LESS...ALWAYS MORE...I'm one person! I can't TAKE it anymore!!!!!!! And that's not even mentioning the things that were there before that I've been trying to solve...
If I wasn't at school, I would scream right now. I feel USELESS.

Give me the name of the person who sent the email. I'll get their phone number for you and you can keep calling them. Send a reply to the email stating that the CHSPE and the OoE reguard the documents sent as official, and that they don't provide documents with embossed seals. Optionally add to the email that, being a state instutution, Kean is constitutionally required to accept all documents from other states with "full faith and credit". Advise that they call the CHSPE and/or the OoE and provide the numbers in the email. Tell that that you NEED housing, and that the delay is entirely their fault. Request that you be given special considderation with reguards to the housing because of this.

Yep--you're head-on with what I actually told them, lol. Though after the lady called me back and said the transcript was missing the date and what EXACTLY I had to do...the stuff about them calling won't really solve anything. They don't need a seal, but I can definitely understand why they'd need a date. I'm just hoping that after I send that off today, this nightmare can end...

STOP IT!

You ARE NOT useless, Things like this happen in life but theirs ALWAYS ways around them...

You just need to remain as calm as you can and just tell yourself that you WILL get through this...Then think of the best ways to go about each issue...and eventually solve them

YOU CAN DO IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT

Sorry to hear about the lay-off :(
I will hope you're one of the first ones he hires back in May- until then,can you look for something temporary? Is there a mall nearby?

Ugh, beaurocracy- few things in this world are harder to put up with.

I hope tomorrow is a better day...
*hug*

Thank you, my dear...*hug back* Yeah, I'm hoping so too. A temp job would be great, if I could get one. The problem with our mall here is that they are INCREDIBLY selective about who they hire, and I doubt I'd manage to be hired in the next couple weeks, even with experience, and even then it would only be two more weeks of work. If I get desperate enough for money, I definitely will look into that though. If nothing else, I can use my work days to finish schoolwork...
And YES--beaurocracy. Ugh.
So far today IS a better day--I'm hoping it will last! I'm also looking forward to seeing you, when all this crap is over with and I'm in the place I've wanted to be for so long!

Give Kean the number for CHSPE and tell them to sort it out.

That's what I did--only, I didn't TELL them to sort it out (my application's still on the line lol), but more suggested that the CHSPE would give definite answers as to why it was official.
(I was so tempted to scream, "I don't want to be the middleman anymore! Solve it yourself!!!), but I didn't of course.
