OK, so for the past few months I have been quietly planning a relocation to somewhere that it doesn't get so stinkin' cold during the wintertime. Everyone has dreams of living in a destination that's beautiful and awesome, so I figured where better then Hawaii huh? It's a US territory. As a dreamer, I filled out 1 single application on the state of Hawaii's website to work as a correctional officer and to my utter surprise, I was contacted and told that they are in need of applicants. I returned the email a few months later with my qualifications and was told to wait to hear from someone. (this was in June). Yesterday I got a letter which told me that the last step in the long strung out employment process was to attend the Physical Fitness Test IN HONOLULU. The letter SPECIFICALLY states that if I do not show up to this meeting, ALL ELIGIBILITY for employment through the state of Hawaii will be suspended and I will have to reapply in a year or whenever the opening is posted up and that guarantees nothing. The date has been determined for July 29th which is exactly 2 weeks from today. Unfortunately under such short notice It's going to be very tough for me to book a flight which is over 1200$ round trip. I only need to stay for one day. What do all of you think? Thanks y'all!
