so, the CIA offers an undergraduate scholarship program helping to pay for tuition, fees, etc...in exchange, you have to work for them during the summer and x1.5 the years of school. so roughly 5-8 years. while this is an ideal situation for me, considering it's guaranteed work, it pays for my schooling, and i can do what i want.

but...it's the CIA. it's pretty much the people i rant about and hate. the CIA, who's probably funded every single evil scheme there ever was.

i mean....it's the freakin' CIA. and the career i would be pursuing would make me a direct contributor to even more horrible stuff.

but...they pay for school...and give me a job. what's more important, my ideals....or my practicality?

hmm...

What do you mean, you can do what you want? Can you study anything?
And what kind of work for them might you be doing?

A free education and guaranteed work are pretty hard to pass up.

I suppose you could always take the subversive route and destroy them from the inside... oh, shit, they're watching us. I shouldn't have said that.

i'm planning on studying

i'm planning on studying psychology, so i could study that anyway, and if i did, the career i'd choose would be psychological analyst.

ugghhhhh....i dunno.

so for those of you falling in love
keep it kind, keep it good, keep it right
throw yourself in the midst of danger
and keep one eye open at night.

You should do it.

I mean I'm all for ideals but this will really help in the long run.
If you have "worked for the CIA" on your resume that would be pretty beneficial.
