A few updates:

My thesis defense is scheduled for next Friday. Super excited to get that over with. I have been done with experiments for a month and have submitted a manuscript for publication three weeks ago. I’m eager to defend so I don’t have it looming over me any longer. It is the last big thing I have to do before I graduate in May.

Still no interview invites. Kind of expected, but still disappointing. The last week and a half I’ve been researching jobs to apply for. I’ll work on my CV and cover letters this weekend and send out applications next week. I’m hoping I get a job doing something interesting (I’d really like to work in the emergency department or in pediatrics). 

There’s this awesome training program/conference opportunity in South America this summer, but since I don’t know what I’m doing next year, I don’t know if I should apply. If I have to get a job, I won’t be able to go, but if I get into medical school, I would definitely have the time to attend. The application closes mid-March, so I have a little bit of time to think about it.

Other than that, not really much going on in my life. A few side projects I’m hoping to finish up before I graduate. I’m so ready to be done with graduate school (and bench research). 

My parents are discussing returning my puppy to the breeder. I’ve had him for two weeks. It’s harder than I thought but the main problem is that they’re not able to cope with anything out of normal routine without yelling at and accusing each other. I never thought it would be like that. He’s been a bit hard to manage the past days but it’s my first dog and I don’t wanna lose him.

Ridiculous sign update:

Pete literally stopped playing to laugh when he saw us and Patrick squinted through the crowd at us for what felt like 10 minutes before bursting into laughter. They called us out at the end of the show! 

Unpopular Opinion

While I 100% understand if people don’t like Perfect, if it doesn’t fit their expectations for this band, or their personal music tastes, pop music is, in and of itself, a valid and real genre. There are rules to pop music, especially this style, that are inherent across the board, and consistent. It’s certainly not everyone’s taste, but just because a pop song fits the standards for pop music, isn’t enough to render it invalid.

I think that Perfect is a good pop song. It’s fun, it gets stuck in your head, it’s in a good key to sing along. It fits the genre well. That doesn’t mean that’s what we need to desire for One Direction, or that we need to like it, but the song performs well as it is supposed to, and it’s not inherently inferior just because it’s not your genre of choice.
