Where is Timbits' school? Is it possible it closed early or they are doing everything online now because of coronavirus? 

Not that I think that's likely, I think his uneducated ass flunked out. Should we start taking bets on how Jill will spin this?

It's Fox Valley Technical College in Wisconsin. As of this morning, their website said nothing about any cancellations. As of now, however, the situation has changed.....but not in a way that would explain Tim's absence from there -- Here it is -- 

Thursday, March 12, 2020

UPDATE COVID-19 AND FVTC ACTIONS

Fox Valley Technical college has been closely monitoring the global spread of the COVID-19 virus and for the safety of our community have decided to take several actions: 

Extend the college’s spring break by one week through March 29, 2020 (classes will be held as scheduled on March 12, 13 and 14)  [Spring break begins March 15. It's now two weeks long instead of one week long.]

Encourage alternative work options for faculty, staff, and students 

Postpone any large college and community events with expected attendance of greater than 100 

 

Spring Break Extension
In preparation for coursework resuming on March 30, we are informing students of the following:

The break in instruction is being extended by one week and students should not report to campus or be required to participate in any coursework during the extended break. 

We will be monitoring the situation with regard to instruction and college operations and communicating as necessary.

All current online coursework will resume on March 30

Collaborate courses will resume on March 30

Hybrid courses (those with some online component) should resume as online coursework as of March 30

In person, lecture or classroom-based courses will be converted to online, where possible and will resume as of March 30

For those courses (lab-based, clinical, internships, etc.) which cannot be moved to an online format – we will be making a determination about in-person course delivery prior to the March 30 presumed resumption of coursework.

 

Campus Events and Services
As of now, campus buildings will remain open. Please call prior to your visit to ensure a staff member is available to assist you.

To promote social distancing and reduce possible spread of virus, we are postponing community and College events whose attendance is anticipated to be greater than 100 effective immediately. At present, this applies to all events scheduled before April 20, 2020.

We are also suspending campus-based food service effective the end of business Friday, March 13, 2020. At this time, we are planning for food service to resume on March 30. 

At this time, the Parent Child Center will remain open.

 

Ongoing Communication
The situation is dynamic and changing quickly.   We’ve made a commitment to communicate as quickly as we are able.

WTF was that paragraph from Jill all about? "Dress, music, sin, alcohol, faithlessness, etc. etc. is all excused away as 'permissable'?? Bitch, yes, because those things are all legal in this country, thank goodness. The amount of hate they have for people who don't adhere to their beliefs is terrifying. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go drink some alcohol and dance along to music in tight pants. 

Ok fucking THANK YOU!! I Thought I was an idiot for a moment because I was like “what the actual fuck is she ranting about?!”

Thanks for the Fox Valley Tech updated info, @Churchhoney. So Tim came home about a week before Spring Break, thus missing scheduled classes. If he's still enrolled.

It seems unlikely that he's still a student in good standing at that school.

IIRC when he first went there, Jill's posts on SM indicated that Tim had been helped by a group there of some kind of Christian missionary pilots. So, though Tim was enrolling in an ebil public school, he had that Christian group there to, I suppose, protect his soul against the depredations of Satan. Or something. And IIRC there was a post by or about Tim, where he got to go up in a small plane. Not sure if it was through school or that group. I wonder if that group reached their limit with helping him, or if they were ever as all into him as JillR's posts portrayed it.  

We may never know what happened. He probably couldn't hack the coursework as @Zella and others have noted. I think it's also been mentioned that maybe there was some incident related to his bizarre outburst on SM a few weeks ago, about the evils of pornography.

Because, no, you don't get a "birthday week" off of school, especially just a few days before the whole school shuts down for spring break. 

And, I'm with those who need help after I've read and tried to parse Jill's outbursts of Biblical word salad like the one above. She's howling like mad - but of course we have no idea what "Satanic" bad thing(s) are going on with her. It could be that she's not drawing her desired attendance for the womens gathering this weekend, or the evil hotel wants her to pay what the contract she signed says she owes them, or her pleas for contributions to support their family through that missionary clearinghouse haven't produced enough bucks. 

She's vile, and delusional, and never stops playing the "I'm being PERSECUTED because I'M SO GODLY AND RIGHT WITH JESUS!" game.

It must be exhausting to deal with her. She probably gets a lot of what she wants by just never. letting. up. till people will do anything to get rid of her.

He very well may have flunked out. But I think he could drive from Wisconsin to Ohio within 1 day? Maybe a long day? 

It's around a 9 hour drive if he didn't make any stops on the way. However, as others have noted, he has apparently skipped an entire week of classes going into the spring break.  I suppose he could be doing online courses that don't require his presence on campus, but I suspect his course load is mainly lower level subjects, those are usually less likely to be completely online.

Jill is too stupid to know that college students don't get their birthdays off to come home, so his birthday appearance is suspicious. Given Jill's recent outbursts, I think Tim's about to move into the boys' bunk room and toil away printing smiley faces with his siblings. I'm waiting to hear Jill's satanic spin because it's impossible that Tim's lackluster homeschooling could be at fault.

Steve and Teri have notoriously held a service in a retirement home for years. It's notorious, because it's been speculated that the residents may not have a choice in whether to attend. It's also been speculated that Steve and Teri hold services at the retirement home to keep away from less Holy Christians, who do things like go on dates, watch tv, listen to secular music, etc. All things the Maxwells are against.  It's a good way to keep the family isolated. 

Now it turns the Maxwells have started attending a real church service in the evenings. Which they will continue to go to.  Meanwhile the retirement home has temporarily cancelled the Maxwells due to Coronavirus! The "management has decided to cancel all activities that are conducted by non-residents as of Wednesday."

"They said the closure would be until April. However, we anticipate it to be extended. "

The ended the blog post with this really annoying, cloying paragraph:

"We’re so grateful that because of placing our faith in Jesus and accepting Him, as Christians, we have nothing to fear from the coronavirus. In fact, it is an incredible opportunity to share with others the hope we have in Jesus!"

How is an incredible opportunity when people are largely staying home. There are less people out and about to proletyze to. If someone tried to talk to me about Jesus right now, I would be particularly annoyed, because of the viral outbreak. 

Earlier this week, Sarah asked for remedies for dealing with carsickness. The readers love to give advice so this was a popular post.

  • He came back to help his wonderful super-skilled amazing father finish the renovations and additions to their new home.
  • He has felt the call to join his father's printing mission.
  • The Lord has told him to return home and help while his blessed wonderful Best Mother EVER is so busy with all the preparations for Nurie's wedding.

Other than that? I got nothing. But we all know that Jill is SEVERELY creative when it comes to her online word vomiting, so I'm sort of hoping we get something really crazy about this. Heh.

I've mentioned before that I used to go to Timmy's school many year ago.  There's a very small possibility that depending on his current courses, he just might have been able to get away for his birthday.  He could have been in Ohio for a long weekend and perhaps he doesn't have classes every day of the week.  Like most schools of that type, attendance is part of your grade, but it is possible to miss some classes here and there if you clear it with the professor first.  Logic would suggest that he just postpone his birthday week until spring break, but of course logic never applies with people like this.

I actually hope that you are right. This whole "birthday week" scenario sounds suspicious at best, but even though a Timbits crash and burn collegiate attempt makes for good snark, I can't help but still hope he can break free of the family in at least a small way. 

My take on Jill's whole satanic rant is that it was aimed toward the Duggars and adjacents. Think of it; here she is finally poised to be practically related to them, but now that dream is finally on her doorstep, she sees all (or many of) the girls wearing pants and cutting their hair. Ben's sisters seem to be going practically mainstream, and God only knows whether that might start rubbing off on the family. Amy, who was always a bit of a problem, but who there was maybe some hope for in her eyes, is married to a guy who actually owns a drinking establishment, and that's probably just too close for comfort....She probably feels as though this dream that is finally within her grasp is now falling apart at her fingertips. This former enclave of godliness, in her mind, is developing more potential holes than a sieve the closer she gets to it.

Timba did seem to be losing ground to his other siblings in his absence. I really do think the poor Rodrigues kids expend a lot of energy competing with each other for mama's attention, and I have no doubt that Jill made his life a living hell for not wishing her a happy birthday or Mother's Day or whatever it was. I'm sure he's done a lot of groveling since and returning home to fawn over Jill after leaving school would please her SEVERELY.

They really believe this. My area was hit by a natural disaster a few years back. You should have heard some of the bullshit said about the path of the storm. I guess Fundies and such take great joy in believing non-believers are punished by God with storms and viruses. How very gracious.

Jill would be unhappy if Tim left his MISSIONARY pilot training program because she couldn't  brag about him. Now that Nurie is engaged to an almost DUGGAR, Jill has plenty of material for her brag blog, so she doesn't need Tim. These kids are just ego props for Jill, so they're interchangeable.

That's a great observation. I think that JillR is SEVERELY disappointed that instead of Nurie's engagement to ANNA DUGGAR'S BROTHER! being proudly, warmly, and publicly acknowledged by any actual Duggar, it's getting a pretty ho-hum reception. Gosh, it COULDN'T be for any valid reason, because JillR and the Rods are the MOST DEVOTED AND RIGHTEOUS FOLLOWERS OF THE CORRECT JESUS. Sooo, it has to be because . . . Satan is doing his work among the Duggars? See - some of the Duggar women are wearing PANTS!!! I'd bet a hot dinner that the Rods' RV would be parked in the TTH driveway again if they were off the Duggars' shit list. 

I also think that, while her failure to be embraced by the Duggars must rankle, JillR's probably invoking Satan also in response to other setbacks or challenges in her life. Things that most people would understand are just the way things work. Like, having to pay bills you incur, or having a disappointing amount of money come in from the missionary clearinghouse that you hope will underwrite your family's lifestyle. It's hard to follow her thinking (and would make me crazy if I tried too hard!), but maybe a bunch of things came together to spark that rant.
