inspirational music for the graduate student 1.7

I woke up this morning wondering what song I should choose for today’s inspirational music post… But then it didn’t make sense inspirational music happens on Thursdays and I thought today was Friday. It was then that I realized that I had been so excited about my experiment working yesterday that I completely forgot that I was supposed to write an inspirational music post yesterday instead of my whoo-hoo-my-experiment-worked post. Can you blame me though?

So, for this week only (or at least I hope so), inspirational music comes on Friday. For this week, to celebrate my successful experiment, I’ve chosen the song: Something Corporate – 21 and Invincible. Because that’s how I feel right now and I’m going to enjoy it as long as I can before my ass of a major professor bursts my bubble or my next experiment fails.

The sad thing is, I was trying to think of a whoo-hoo-happy-carefree song for this edition and I couldn’t think of anything at all because I just don’t listen to very happy music. So the song I chose was the closest thing that I have. What can I say? I’m just emo like that. And Something Corporate is good, so it’s okay.

And of course, if you’re a grad student (or even if you’re not) and you know what it’s like, feel free to send me songs that get you through your grad school days through the contact form.

The patient is a 20-something-year-old MD/PhD student with a history of extensive schooling now presenting with frustration at her current lack of progress consistent with being stuck in a rut.



Scientists in the EU are designing robot nurses.  Looks like they'll be pretty cute.  And that they'll be taking care of the more tedious tasks (like mopping up spills and guiding visitors to patient rooms), hopefully freeing up human nurses for more pressing patient matters.  Unless, of course, they malfunction…


iPhone > girlfriend?  Well, yeah if my girlfriend is as super-fugly and super-psycho as my brother-in-law's.  And I'm assuming that's why an informal survey found that 1 in 8 guys would trade their girlfriends for the latest and greatest tech toys.


A new study shows that more Americans are drinking soda at breakfast.  Soda for breakfast?  Gross.  I guess it beats coffee though.  The article also mentions that about half of the US population drinks 4 or more sodas a day.  Damn.  I used to have one soda a day and feared for my health enough to cut soda pretty much completely out of my diet.  Diabetes nation, here we come.
