VIP Kid update and more..

June 30th, 2017 at 05:12 am

For Laura (or anyone else who may have been interested): I had the interview with VIP, and I thought it went well. However, the follow up email was I didn't have enough ESL experience, so they were not going to go any further with me. That was fine, but I was not happy with them. I raced home from the Detroit area that day to prep for the interview. They had my resume. They know my lack of ESL experience. I guess my point is, they should not have had me bother with the interview.

Merilee, I saw your comment on my last post. We should meet sometime. Do you do the mall walking?I am going to start Monday! I walk in the park now, but walking in air conditioning with others is appealing.

I went to parent orientation at the university yesterday. I learned a lot. My son had to stay overnight in the dorm. I will go pick him up shortly. I hope he had fun!

Also, he got a summer job at Subway. Final tally on his grad money was just over $1200. He bought a bike, lock and helmet. He is also planning on a laptop. He will put any leftover money toward books.

Next week my older son, wife and kids will be here too! I am so excited they are moving here as well. They both transferred their jobs at CVS.

My daughter is going to Wilmington, NC next week to explore the area. She has an opportunity to almost double her income if she transfers her job there. If anyone knows anything about that area, I would love to hear more (as would she).

On the financial front, I am spending as little as possible. I only have one more child support payment left. I am all set up for subbing in September, but it is that two month gap where I need to be very careful. I am trying to pick up more mystery shops and am also volunteering for some extra editing. Even with two trips to the Detroit area, I have barely used any gas. Everything is so close here, I don't think I have used more than a half tank all month other than those trips.

    I am at the mall every Monday, Wednesday, Friday (most weeks-not this coming Monday) for the one hour exercise class in the food court. It starts at 8:30 a.m. I cannot walk the mall anymore due to a leg problem.. If you can get there by 9:30 we can have a nice visit. I plan to be there this coming Wednesday and will be wearing my pink polo shirt. I have white hair and usually stand on the outside ring of the exercisers. If this doesn't work for you, let me know and we will arrange something else.
    I am looking forward to meeting you.

    Sorry, I goofed. I forgot my son is having some surgery on this coming Wednesday so that's not going to work out. I do expect to be there on Friday barring any unforeseen complications.

    I will put it on my calendar Smile

    Um .. wow. They must be getting really picky. ESL experience isn't listed as a necessary requirement! I'm sorry that happened.

    I saw someone suggest a different company on FB. I'll have to see if I can find that post.

    @FrugalTexan I saw a site called Cambly on one of the work from home sites. I am going to check it out.

    Ok. I had forgotten to look into this - I wonder if that is the site I was thinking about.
