You must see your local surgeon for a frontal lobotomy.

Most ATC organisations are always looking for candidates. Just give them a call and ask, they probably have glossy brochures and/or people explaining everything quite well.
From what I hear you need:
1) good hearing
2) excellent control of English language
3) extremely resistant to stress
4) finish tough inhouse training
I wish I were flying

You will also need :

-good eyesight
-good ability to remember things

I might be able to tell you a bit better in fall. In the end of October I'll be doing a internship with the German ATC.
