“If something in its essence is wrong, and you are dreading that other people will find out about it. Then don't do it. And similarly, if something in its essence is right, but other people judge you for it, then why care - you know it is right in its essence so go ahead and do it. ”

What do you do?

Sometimes I pipette colorless liquids around in the lab and sometimes I try to make the world a better place.


I want the autonomy to do what I want, and I also want the world to be a better place when I leave it than when I arrived in it.

What should we read?

After many years of reading textbooks and papers during my studies I got tired of reading. Picking up one of the many books on my to-read list after another "day of reading" was the last thing I wanted to. That was until I finally picked up a book I wanted to read solely for the pleasure of reading it. Reading this book didn't have the premise of me learning something new; It wouldn't help me get things done, think smarter, or teach me about the history of the world and it certainly wasn't mandatory reading because I had a paper to submit. It was just reading because that's what I wanted to do. That book helped me re-discover that I love reading and I have since then lost track of how many books I have read. So if you are in a situation similar to mine, and reading mostly fills you with dread, then I recommend that you pick up something you have always wanted to read and then just get started. If it still feels like a chore, then stop, put it down and find something else to read. * In my case I read "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" by Arthur Conan Doyle. Its free from Project Gutenberg and many other places.
