Army Thu, Jun 23, 2005
Sometimes, when I think back to how I got to where I am right now at work, I wonder if I could've made some different choices.  When I interviewed for my current job, I interviewed for 5 different positions in 5 different organizations.  I remember my second choice (I think), which had something to do with management.  I remember that my interviewer persuaded me because he said it would be a good career move and I could move up quickly.  I'm glad I didn't go with that.  Management is retarded.  A few of the other positions had something to do with manufacturing and quality, which I really didn't want to get in to.  So I chose optics because I had some [some is an exaggeration] experience from my work at Thorlabs.  But when I think about it, I'm glad I am where I am.  I would say I support the war, but I'm not too fond of killing.  The organization I work for designs optics, which make guns more accurate.  This makes it so that a gun will hit its target, and it won't hit anything else.  This cuts down on accidental casualties and stuff like that.  Plus, we design optics that protect our soldiers from eye damage, thus reducing our own army's casualties.  In a way, this is me trying to justify working for the army.  But in another way, it's the truth.  Yes I work for the army, that big killing and fighting machine.  But I work to try to make things more accurate and safe.  Eh? #politics
