so i did get fired. i sent in my application Saturday, i'm just waiting for their confirmation email. i'm pretty confident i'll get it since the position has been open for a few weeks.
the footsteps have been getting more prominent, and i swear to god i'm hearing voices up there. Yesterday I checked the outside and roof for any sign of entry to the attic and there's nothing. i'm going to consult a therapist about this next Monday. if i get the job it shouldn't be a problem since i applied for the night shift.
i'll update again when i get an email, or after the appointment with the therapist.
