Everyone should start being very nice to me, because in a few months, I might have the power to destroy you! It’s possible that I’m exaggerating a little, but I did get an internship with the Department of State that starts at the beginning of the summer! I went in for an interview last week, and I guess they liked me because they emailed me the next day saying that I got the job! I guess it was worth it to show up 2 ½ hours early. Yes, that number was 2 ½ hours. The interview was in Rosslyn at 2, and even though Google Maps said that it would take about 45 minutes to get there, I decided that leaving at 10 would be more rational. I was there by 10:30, so I just hung out at a nearby coffee place until it was time. I went in, they asked me questions that were so by-the-books that I think they just looked up “Interview Questions” on Google right before I got there, and I left. The whole thing would’ve taken about 90 minutes if I weren’t such a dork. Anyway, it’s going to take at least three months to get the necessary security clearance (!!!) needed for me to work there, but after the FBI is done investigating me—yes, you read that right—I’ll be good to go! Part of my job will be doing extensive background checks, so like I said—look out!
