I had an interview with Social Security recently for an actual career-path job, so we'll see if anything comes of that. To put the time frame in perspective, they were taking applications in mid-April, they called me for an interview in mid-July, and they expect to make a decision around Labor Day.
In other news, I turned 23 on Friday. We had interesting Mexican food, and then Korean food tonight since my sister arrived today (Saturday). The Korean place is fairly new, and we had a strange experience the last time we went there; the servers forgot to bring my dinner. After a while, I reminded them that I had in fact ordered en entree, and it finally came just as the rest of the family was finishing up. So then the hostess came out and apologized, and offered coupons, but there was apparently this really complicated coupon situation in which one would have to get one's coupon stamped at 3 lunches or 2 dinners or something that I didn't understand at all. My mom thought the hostess had been hitting the rice wine, and my dad asked me if, after my IRS training was over and I had learned to understand the US tax code, I would then be able to figure out the coupon situation and explain it to him. But tonight was free of mishaps, and they were even giving out free iced rice punch for dessert.
