I would appreciate it if you would stop offering rad elective courses.  “Mind-Body Medicine and Mindfulness Meditation: Theory and Practice”??  THROW ME A FREAKIN’ BONE!  How am I supposed to say no to that?  After the half-credit intensive bioethics class I threw myself into this past weekend, I think I need a class on meditation to recover, no?

Clearly, I am a terrible medical student.  I really should just embrace being a permanent class-taker–a student of life, if you will–and, rather than find respectful employment, wear a sign that says “will think for food.”  The coherence/quality of my thoughts, however, is questionable at best.
