What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently in my first year of a chemistry related job. They say it
takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert at something,
and that's the goal. I want to be a specialist in my field. In the
short term, that means either a PhD or some time working

not so much. Especially if you're wearing flip-flops.
