I Predicted It!
Chef told me NO WAY is SD (18.5) going to college. Well according to the Girhippo she is going to local community college (probably on the new "free college" program) for Criminal Justice.
Apparently SD wants to be a Probation Officer (after being a fan of OITNB). I was looking up the requirements to take the civil service test here and it's basically a Bachelors degree in Social Services with two years experience as a social services caseworker OR a graduate degree.
This from a kid who HATES school because the Girhippo NEVER made her do any schoolwork. In fact we just got an exit report from her "special education" team stating that SD could do better but she just never does any follow up work/practice that is prescribed.
Same old story on the report card; she never catches up or turns in any homework/classwork that is required. Of course they will still graduate her and walk her down the aisle. I'm pretty sure all of her community college courses will be remedial; her lexile score is a good 150 points below what it should be.
So for my next prediction, she, who was taught that life is nothing but fun, FUN, FUN , therefore spoiled, entitled and miserable, will fail out of community college by the first year if not first semester.
I'm pretty sure the Girhippo quit her CS Supervisor job and got a job as a waitress to qualify for the "free" NYS college program. And, of course, to continue CS till 21 and beyond as I had predicted a loooooonnnnng time ago.
