I want to look back at this time and say to myself, ‘see, it was all worth it.’ Why you ask? Because I’m helping my gorgeous (said with tongue firmly in cheek at this time) son to write an application for a high school he wants to go to and which would suit him.
Applicants have to write or prepare their own application answering selection criteria. Get your parents to help you it says! Faaarrrk. I’d rather write yet another job application and that’s saying something. Although things are looking good on the job front for me. More to come when I can say more!
Ever tried helping your child write an application when their attention span is bloody nought? Sure, he wrote down the bullet points that he wanted to address, but the devil’s in the detail isn’t it? I think we’ve finally done it though and it just needs a few other people to look at it because I’ve sure had enough.
And it’s not just that. Because he doesn’t want to go to his zoned high school there’s paperwork around that justifying the decision too.
It’s Easter long weekend for goodness sake and there’s lots I’d rather be doing than pinning the lad down to concentrate. He doesn’t get the consequences of this I don’t think. Sure he’s passionate about why he wants to go this high school but translating that to an application? Nah huh!
As this woman says: “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That“. Have you seen it?
Don’t feel lonely Jen, I’m trying to write an application for a grant and my attention span is not supporting me. I don’t have all the things I need and I’m annoyed with myself. I hope you get through it. Happy to hear the job thing is looking good:).
