1. Remember that time I swore I would never do research again? That was cute. Today I had a meeting with the head of our curriculum and tried to convince him to let me integrate a pet project of mine into the curriculum.
2. “That sounds publishable! Let’s make it happen. Here’s a good journal and a deadline for submission.” … Wait, what? Am I… why?
3. WHY DO I HAVE NO STANDARDS. I’m not very good at the “I don’t like academia” game.
4. Step 1 Looms Ahead. I went to a promotional session by Kaplan today – partially because of the free pizza, but mostly because I wanted to see if the Kaplan representatives in Metropolis were better than the Kaplan representatives at Midwestern U.
They were not.
… though, to be fair, I was a Kaplan representative at Midwestern U – so I may be biased.
(I am not. This representative was genuinely terrible.)
(Then again – I’m looking at pediatrics. Perhaps I shouldn’t judge.)
(Or open any more parenthesis).
