Pay Attention!

20140123-112658.jpg

Dear colleague. I know that you’re a student at Hopkins, so you must be bright. Maybe biostatistics comes incredibly easy to you. Maybe you’re just here to get an easy A. I’m not. Most of us are not. We’re here because we want to learn some difficult concepts to apply in our careers in public health. If you’re going to surf the web and read gossip blogs, may I recommend you don’t sit at the front of the class and distract all of us behind you?

I'm a doctoral candidate in the Doctor of Public Health program at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. All opinions posted here are my own, of course, and they do not necessarily reflect the opinions of my school, employers, friends, family, etc. Feel free to follow me on Twitter: @EpiRen

One thought on “Pay Attention!

  1. Maybe it’s because I’m an experienced father and now, grandfather, but I’m capable of ignoring many such distractions.
    Or perhaps, it’s the hard won experience of 32 years of learning selective attention… 😉

    Still, now you know how “The Kid” got started. 😛
