    [–] What movie is so ridiculously stupid, but you secretly love it? Modest_MaoZedong 2 points ago in AskReddit

    The mummy. I had a childhood boner for ancient Egypt.

    It only gets better / funnier as Brendan Fraser gets older and weirder. Why does Brendan Fraser seem like an average guy pretending to be Brendan Fraser ...

    [–] As a 17 year old soon entering the real world, what is some advice you could give me that would really make it a lot easier? Modest_MaoZedong 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Omg - I wish I was you. MAKE GOOD GRADES IN SCHOOL EVEN IF YOU FIRMLY BELIEVE YOU WILL NOT DO ANY POST GRADUATE WORK.

    I made a 2.13 GPA because I didn’t give a shit. I mean, my mom had cancer and died while I was in college so that definitely didn’t help, but still. My excuse was that I wasn’t going to grad school so it didn’t matter. After 4 years of telling myself I’ll “get over wanted to go to medical school”, I’ve finally gone back to school to take classes I need to apply / take the MCAT. My post bacc GPA is a 3.9, but I’ll now have to make all A’s for 3-4 years straight for my application to even be looked at.

    You do not know who you will want to become for a while, which is okay. But just make your time in college / early 20s count, so you don’t have to spend another 4 years reliving your life just to get there.

    If you don’t plan to go to school, that’s fine too. Wait til you know what you want. Work, save your money to an extent and enjoy yourself to an extent. Cocaine sucks, isn’t fun, and is expensive and will make you poor. Don’t keep trying to see when the fun coke will come, it never will. Save your money and eat sushi and pho and pizza and play video games.

    [–] Is Colton 5 years old? Or is he America’s hero.... Modest_MaoZedong 2 points ago in bachelor

    HHAHA wow what a prick you went out with. Good for you for bailing. I'm worried Colton will become an incel. It's super obvious to me now why no one has ever gotten close enough with him to have sex with him...there definitely is something super duper weird about him. And I feel like you could even see it happening on the show, as the girls start to get that weird cringe second-hand embarrassment feel hahha

    [–] Have any of you given up permanently on PA? Modest_MaoZedong 9 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    Have you had any interviews with any of these 3 rounds of interview skills? Not a PA-S / PA-C, but I am applying in 2021 and have met with a lot of admissions people and a lot of pre health advisors. I understand if you aren't able to afford more school (do any of your jobs offer tuition reimbursement?), but I wonder if even working on your interview skills, applying to a different set of schools, and picking up a new volunteer position would help your chances for the next round?

    Also have you spoken to admissions about your acceptances? Sometimes they will be willing to tell you exactly what it is . You may already know, I just got the impression from your post that you hadn't gotten a straight up answer as to why you keep getting rejected.

    And lastly, good luck. Being rejected is so hard, but like someone said on here... if you give up, it's over. If you don't give up, it may be later in life than you'd like but you WILL be a PA-C.

    [–] Is Colton 5 years old? Or is he America’s hero.... Modest_MaoZedong 2 points ago in bachelor

    Agree - also I thought it was really uncool the way he spoke to that female producer . like yanked away and yelled "Do NOT touch me." but then Chris Harrison shows up and he's like "whats up bud". I kind of got the feeling throughout the whole show that he just ... doesn't understand, want to understand or respect women that much, as least as much more than like a "girlfriend heehee". He's definitely suuuuper childish.

    [–] Is Colton 5 years old? Or is he America’s hero.... Modest_MaoZedong 5 points ago in bachelor

    LOL OKAY you're right what was I thinking. Also dying at Chris Harrison being like hey man... what if she just doesn't like you. *crickets* Colton: nah I'm pretty sure she just didn't like that I was with two other girls

    *hours earlier*

    Cassie: Yea no I hear that you love me, I'm just not sure if I can ever love you

    [–] What's a non-sexual moment equivalent of an orgasm? Modest_MaoZedong 1 points ago in AskReddit

    When you spend a million years watching your dog wander around the yard in the cold, dark rain looking for a place to pee, circling and circling, saying “nope not here.....nnnnope not there either”. And then they finally fucking pee so you can all go inside

    [–] My perfect man on the morning we sent him over the Rainbow Bridge - 2/08/19 - We love you forever, General Grievous! Modest_MaoZedong 7 points ago in pics

    Thanks, yours too. I had never had a cat, I actually was allergic. But I saw him at the vet when I brought in a baby possum I found on the road, and I just knew he was supposed to be my buddy. He was about to go to the shelter, but I took him home that day. Best decision I ever made. Powered through my allergy and eventually my immune system just gave in haha. He was my best friend, as I’m sure your cat was yours as well.

    [–] My perfect man on the morning we sent him over the Rainbow Bridge - 2/08/19 - We love you forever, General Grievous! Modest_MaoZedong 9 points ago in pics

    Thank you. He was a really really good boy. We adopted him two years ago and wish we had longer to be with him, but we will forever adopt senior special needs pets in his honor. My baby boy :)

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. Modest_MaoZedong 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    F THAT. You're a young, hot, smart MD and you should be able to wear those cute clothes on days you don't have to wear scrubs! Keep doing you. I'm sure you're a phenomenal physician.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. Modest_MaoZedong 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Damn - you're in a tricky spot because if your team is laughing it off, I'm not sure if a rebuttal would look appropriate or not. It's so awkward to stand up for yourself too, I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that we, females, are kind of conditioned to just accept this behavior and worried about "coming off as a bitch". It sucks.

    Have you ever tried something that feels scripted, something real dry and direct so you can kind of just rattle it off and move on? Like a boundary establishing remark? Maybe something along the lines of "Comments like that make me uncomfortable, which distracts me from my work. I am here to learn how to be the best doctor I can be, which is important to me, so I'd appreciate it if we stayed professional." Kind of robotic haha but at least it sets boundaries and doesn't insult them/aka damage their ego and make them even more defensive and diffcult. It's very clear.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. Modest_MaoZedong 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Right? God it makes me want to SCREAM. My manager not having my back fully sends me over the edge. I really think it's so messed up to expect me to continue working with a client when they clearly have zero respect for me. Also, perhaps a harsh perspective in mental health, but maybe being denied their short term reward over and over will finally instill some respect. I am so sick of being uncomfortable. Fortunately, I will get to quit soon and go back to school to finish PA pre-requisites. Woohoo! Lol - would you rather..... be hit on or do O Chem? Haha.

    Also - I am giggling trying to imagine your last name. Really hoping it's Snickers.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. Modest_MaoZedong 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Thanks ! I hope things get better for you soon too...didn’t mean for that comment to be all about me I actually am interested in hearing feedback from other female providers in how to establish firm and safe boundaries while also being mindful of the line of work we are in. So please let us know how you decide to handle these instances moving forward!!!

    Best of luck!

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. Modest_MaoZedong 111 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Wow OP I am super sorry you are having to even say this. Being a young female in the industry certainly has its negative sides. I am not a physician, I am applying to PA school, but this is an interesting post to read right now because i was *trying* to have this conversation with my manager the other day about my patients . I work in mental health, specifically with older adult clients with severe and persistent mental illness. My manager is an older woman who frequently brushes off my complaints of the way some males treat me and it's really on my last fucking nerve. She doesn't experience this same level of attention from men and I get the feeling she thinks I am begin a self absorbed person. I , in my own opinion, am a decent looking female and I am 28. I have a bubbly personality and try to give people body language cues that insinuate I am actively listening and giving them my undivided attention.

    Unfortunately, this often leads to me being told that it's "too bad I'm married" (because we had such a chance if I wasn't??), my voice arouses them, being asked to help teach them how to access porn / use their phone for porn, that they just want a "platonic friendship" with me (not what I do at all...) and situations in which clients try to get me to take them into the bathroom, in the company car alone, etc. A lot of my clients have physical, cognitive, and sensory impairments, but my god. I just don't know where to draw the line between, "okay I am a provider and it is my job to provide through the bullshit" and "I don't deserve to be treated this way by any single person, regardless of physical or cognitive limitations". My manager really doesn't seem to give much of a fuck or even believe me. I called HR on her once, as she was asking me to go visit a client in the community. It wasn't until speaking with a colleague that I found out that this client groped a female colleagues vagina. The fact that I wasn't warned about that is completely fucking absurd.

    TLDR; whenever I, a woman, complain about being sexually harassed, I feel like my boss and other bosses I've had chalk it up to me being arrogant. I am a VERY non-arrogant person.

    [–] 15 year old cat with IBD on Prednisone ... is he happy? Modest_MaoZedong 2 points ago in cats

    Thanks :) It's difficult because you always feel SO selfish, like you're doing it because you're tired of the meds, and cleaning up poop, and the incessant yowling my god. But at the end of the day, it's really about the fact that there wouldn't be the meds and the poop and the screaming yowling if he wasn't feeling REALLY really really bad.

    [–] 15 year old cat with IBD on Prednisone ... is he happy? Modest_MaoZedong 2 points ago in cats

    Hey thanks for responding. That's a really good point. I also try to remind myself that if I was really sick and someone was like hey let's go to the doctor! And I just got sleepy and fell asleep...and that's all I knew? Then that would be okay with me.

    [–] 15 year old cat with IBD on Prednisone ... is he happy? Modest_MaoZedong 1 points ago in cats

    Thanks for your response - they have checked kidney and they seem to be doing fine. It seems more like liver to the vet, or just severe IBD. It's more the issue of the prednisone like fixing him as much as making him strung out and miserable that I'm concerned with. We're just so happy to get the vomiting under control.
