@Ri L. is a dynamite gal: No. :X B-but... I should be able to dance with my Liara, I hope!!
(I couldn't date Garrus, he's way too much like my Shep.)
Is there any non-red-flag-y way to say "some college/not a current student but did not graduate" on a resume? (Short version is I owe the school money do I can't go back until I pay them, but I don't think I really want to go back.)
I thought about just putting the school/major and letting them draw their own conclusions, but I feel like that would prolly make them think I was dishonest if it came up in an interview (I don't intend to lie about it if it does come up.) Alternatively, I thought about listing myself as a current student and then say in potential interviews/cover letter I was taking a break, but I dunno about that either... if I'd get passed up for full time/open availability stuff, or if it'd make me look like a slacker who doesn't finish what they start.
(I tend to stay at jobs for years, so I've only had like four in my life, so I'm reeeeally bad at this kind of stuff.)
@elephantsgerald: Yeah, that's weird--though the bigger thing I think is weird is that it's an unlocked box with street access. Anecdotally, I've had three apartments in New York with locked, individual mailboxes and two with just a slot in the building's front door. (Those places were kind of shitty all-around, though.) Also, I've found the post office's mail forwarding to be incredibly hit-or-miss. If your dad mailed it to your old address, I'd be inclined to blame the change-of-address system not working properly.
But yeah, it's something to bring up with the landlord. Or, better yet, the building's super if you have one, as they tend to care more about the state of the building and the tenants. I dunno if it's like this in all cities, or if it's a symptom of our incredibly low vacancy rates, but in my experience, landlords tend not to fix/change anything if it'll cost them money unless it's demanded of them. (That's not to say you'll necessarily have an adversarial relationship with your LL. I've had a few I got along with great. But you still have to bring it up for anything to be done.)
@1girl is Captain Buzzkill: Ha! I play a few historical strategy games (Europa Universalis 3, Victoria 2,) and I'm much worse.
"Ugh, fucking rebels want a democracy. No way, absolute monarchy lets me set the best policies, voting would ruin everything. Send in the army..."
Sorry, people of my country. Representative democracy is a sub-optimal gameplay strategy!
