    I know how lucky I am, and it makes me feel like shit. I don't need someone who is paid to do so reminding me of it.

Word. I apologize that my remarks insinuated anything to the contrary, but the ire has been high on the internet lately and it bothers me that others saying similar remarks usually takes a pretty harsh contrarian stance and rejects all the things you outlined, but that's on me and I didn't ask.

Where I live is kinda the mecca for a lot of activist, liberal arts post-grads, and once I was even dis-invited to a potluck because the house had a strict "only two white cis-males under our roof at a time" policy. While I was cooking. I do not count people like that amongst my friends or allies.

And since you're probably pre-med(?) and focused on your career, it makes a lot of since as to why this wasn't very relevant.

Good luck with the rest of your finals, if you have any left!

What field are you aiming towards?

Not pre-med. I was for a short time, but I got a chance to visit the cadaver lab at my school. No longer interested. I don't have the stomach for the hands on work. Instead my focus is on research systems and methodology, hopefully making the process as easy on patients as possible.

I have one exam left on thursday, then it's time to get started on my winter break reading.
