anyone joining Peace Corps?

Recommended Posts

don't get it twisted, i'm no hippie or tree hugger. i just don't want to be here anymore, but im unemployed, dead broke, and in debt, so vacation is out of the question.

 

the recruiter said i would have to sacrifice many things including being around my family, my friends, and basically the general public, they asked if i wanted to know where i'd be sent...i wanted to know where to sign.

 

 

Would anyone else chill with HIV positive deaf Somali children for a free trip to Africa?

There is actually a lot more to the training and processing of your application. The application process alone takes 6 months to a year. Then training for close to a year. Are you proficient in another language? Do you have a degree in any sort of human services/social science program?

anybody thinking of joining the service to solve their economical situation is fucking stupid.

 

that's like thinking "if i knock up my girlfriend, it'll bring us closer and solve our relationships problems"

 

but by all means, if you're that stupid sign up. they need people like you then.

 

 

NOW

 

as to the peace corps, go for it dude. if you aint got shit going on in your life now, and you're a waste of space and recognize this fact - DO IT. you'll probably build up character if the aids doesnt kill you first.

Vulcan was inspired to enlist after he saw SQUIRREL's submarine pictures.

 

At this point in life I am way too selfish to join the peace core....at least I am honest though.

I dont know how far you made it in school, but most peace corps positions require a bachelors degree also. A family member of mine was in the peace corps in Togo. She said it was one of the most amazing experiences shes ever had. Its a pretty serious commitment though...not a "im tired of being here, I want to go somewhere else" kind of thing. I would suggest putting a bit more thought into it. But hey, what do I know.
