  1. 8th grade daughter needs a Chromebook. I've looked at HP, Dell, Lenovo and I wrong in thinking none of them appear great??
  2. Yikes....terrible?? It was better than 3. 3 wasn't very good.
  3. Thanks. Feel like an idiot though. I was looking all over the app.
  4. Cannot find it for the life of me. And sorry if it's been answered before
  5. When my wife and I first found out he was living with another family, we were a little concerned. Obviously wanting to protect our daughter. But he fought his way through high school. Pays for his own phone. bought his own car. Now jumping through hoops to get into college. He has shown a lot of character and there is something to be said about that. I live in a very nice area. an area where kids get BMW's for their 16th birthday. My wife and I don't have that kind of money, but the point is, this is a kid who has worked hard for everything he has. He understand the value of a dollar. He understands hard work. I think I might like that for my daughter more than some dweeb picking her up in his new Jeep Wrangler. Thanks for all your help. Have a good night.
  6. What should my next stand up specials be? There are so many to pick from. I have watched Jeffries, Ellen, Rogan, Burr, Oswalt, Gaffigan, Jeselnik and Katt Looking at: Jo Koy, Hart, Gervais, Birbiglia, Hannibal, Devine, Bargatze My historical favorites are Gaffigan, Black and CK
  7. This is what he found out this morning. "Special circumstances". He needs to provide three letters from teachers, social workers, etc verifying his information. I've been really having a heart to heart with him and it's been tough. I told him how proud I was and he thanked me and said he's really never heard somebody say that to him. Jesus.
  8. To be clear, it was the community college counselor who told him he needs these signatures. I passed on the suggestion of going to the county court and he was going back to the counselor today to seek more answers. Thanks everyone. Really do appreciate it.
  9. This is the form he is trying to complete. Thanks for your help! I will pass it on. Just want this kid to have a chance.
  10. I try not to pry, but he has told me he has "good grades". And he is trying to go the community college route due to financial restraints. The message he is getting while trying to apply is: Submit a copy of the court's decision that confirms you are an emancipated minor or are in legal guardianship. If 18 (which he is) show paperwork that shows you were emancipated or in legal guardianship when you turned 18.
  11. My oldest daughter has been dating a guy for about 8 months. Really nice kid who has had a pretty rough life. He just turned 18 a few months back and graduated in June. He has been bounced around from home to home. Mother is homeless and he has no idea where his dad is. He is working just to pay for his phone and I just helped him with getting a new (1990 Cobalt) car so he had better transportation. He treats my daughter well and my wife and I really want to help him succeed, even if they don't end up together. I want this kid to do well. He tried applying for financial aid for college was denied. He was trying to explain it to me, but it sounds like it has to do with guardianship and something involving his mom and dad signing off on it. His mom will not return his calls and he has zero idea where his dad is. First, does anyone understand what he is going through or what he needs to do? And second, how can we help him get what he needs to further his education? I told him to maybe talk to an attorney, but he literally just paid of his braces and scraped up enough to buy this car. Last thing he can really afford is lawyer fees. Even though that might end up being necessary. Just wondering if anyone else has any knowledge of this type of issue. Thanks
  12. Oh you're right. I thought for sure that was her daughter. My bad.
