doctorate-bound (i hope)

New year (it’s already February), new semester. It’s early Saturday morning, and I’m dealing with a heavy bout of insomnia due to a 8pm cup of Starbucks.

My current course load:

  • Applied Data Analysis – Time Series
  • Graduate Macroeconomic Theory
  • International Finance and Macroeconomics
  • Experimental Economics and Game Theory
  • Exploration and Proof (mathematics; I’m auditing it)

Plus I’m working on a couple personal statements for summer research and pre-doctoral programs, and doing a bunch of academic journal reading to help develop my research interests.

What did I get myself into?



  1. I’m a believer in PLapid! Keep up with the studies. Carl and I are blazing a light trail in SF when we find free time. Your career will come together!!!

    Ha ha, February is typically the start of my new year too. January is damage control month.
