She's moving into an apartment next fall (Additional FUCK YOU to brokers.) so won't be on campus to just have stuff stored as they are arranging with some that intend to stay on campus but didn't come back. She is NOT happy about 1) having to be at home at least until she gets an internship and 2) missing out on half a semester as the Editor-in-chief of the paper. I totally get #2, but they will still be updating the website and stuff, so she wil have interaction, but it isn't the "newsroom" which I imagine is the best part of the whole process.sancarlos wrote: ↑Wed Mar 18, 2020 9:08 pmThat was an entertaining post. You're a better man than I am for driving all that way to go get your daughter. Mine is flying home tomorrow. Scary. Next semester is online so I was lobbying her to stay and work from home, but she wants to get back to the boyfriend after break, and also points out that she lives off campus and still has to pay rent anyway. Ay yi yi.
UPDATE: She ended up getting not one, but two internships. One is remote so she has been doing that while also working at a bakery here in town. Then the second one is...not remote. It's in Cambridge and starts the first full week of July. Normally I would say it's not worth it, but it pays $25 frigging bucks an hour. Granted, it's just 25 hours a week and for a limited time, but between that and the remote one she's going to do fairly well.
But of course, she now has to get back to Boston. Found a sublet from a friend in her sorority for a reasonable (as far as Boston prices go) rate for two months before she moves into her actual apartment. Roommate that she has met but doesn't know that well, but still not a stranger. However, the plan for all of us to take her up really doesn't make sense as she just needs her clothes and a few things and apparently, she doesn't want "the Griswalds storming into this woman's apartment just to move a few things in." If nothing else at least she knows who the Griswalds are.
So the wife is going with her this time instead of me. Which is fine until one of them murders the other right about Shartlesville. Renting a car and the lady is flying back. She was going to drive but then just didn't feel comfortable doing the whole trip back by herself. Add in that her boss offered to pay for her flight back and it was a mostly no-brainer. A little apprehensive about the flight, but oh well.
The griswalds still plan on driving up in September to move her into her apartment.
ETA: Also her sorority "little" is staying in cape cod this summer at a family home and has offered to come pick her up for a couple of weekends. So that's kind of neat.
