What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was recently accepted into a PhD program at the University of
Wisconsin- Madison to study Philosophy, in particular Metaethics. I
am very excited to begin intensive study in a field that I am
passionate about. However, I'm a little nervous about getting back

people who can show me all that Madison has to offer.

I feel like a have a problem with inertia. If I stop and relax for
too long then my productivity pretty much just stops all together.
However, if I'm motivated and passionate about what I'm doing I
feel like I am committed enough to be pretty good at anything. It's
just a matter of finding that thing that makes the commitment

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm pretty relaxed. I'd much rather hang out with a few people with
some great music/food/drinks than at a massive party.
