I’ve always enjoyed chatting and have taken pleasure in meeting new and interesting people. I am however disheartened as to what the act of socializing has been reduced to – especially online. Be it my lack of eloquence or brevity, but I don’t think 280 characters properly facilitates the exchange of ideas. I also don’t think a cookie cutter themed picture captures a moment. I welcome all who want to chat and get to know one another, but please, just be you - the REAL you. A conversation adheres to a type of music theory, if the melody and individual notes don’t make sense – one can quickly tell someone is being disingenuous.
Anyways…I’m Steve, midlife career changer from investment finance to health care. As I work towards a seat in medical school, I split my time between two clinical offices and a University Professor. While I don’t believe what you do solely defines your character, it does provide a small glimpse into who you are. As an instructor, I am a purveyor of truth, and dislike the spreading of falsehood. With that being said, do not be insulted if I correct you on here, it’s not an attack on you, but rather a means for me to spread knowledge.
AsianGuy333: Just spent 20 minutes having someone scream and insist I’m a fake doctor…
Only for me to keep trying to tell them, I’m not a doctor…nor have I ever said I’m a doctor…
It took three separate people who were kind enough to inform them that I would never claim such things and that they have me confused with someone else. If it were not for them, they would still be screaming at me now…
Seriously… this is the daily crap I have to deal with cause people either can’t remember who they fight with, have recall bias, or just flat out doesn’t want to appear wrong so they double or triple down on nonsense
Stop…just please stop…

AsianGuy333: I don’t care if people considered me irrelevant; being important here has never interested me.
I don’t come on here to provide adult day care.
My issue is more when people make up stuff, claim falsehoods, or attempt to use me as a means to gain some sort of wire clout. If you don’t shut it down early, like a brush fire, it will get out of control.
AsianGuy333: It sounds crazy on the surface, but I had to. If my students see me next year or wanted to ask me for a letter of rec, they need to know what I look like.
Normally I don't like posting these things, and I hope this is the last time I have to update these pictures. It's getting tiresome people demanding proof of what I do - and then double or triple down on it in face of glaring evidences.

familyfriendlyfeline: So can I finally sneeze on you with only a fifty percent chance of killing you? How much does the completely inaccurate percentage in that statement bother you?

AsianGuy333: Happy Thanksgiving Day everyone!
2020 might not seem like there is much to be thankful for… but at least if you’re reading this… you’re alive… so there’s that
