-What do you want to do after graduation?
"I want to write, actually. November has this thing called National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write 50.000 words in 30 days. You sit down everyday, write 2000 words on a subject of your choice and hopefully by the end of the month you have an entire book. Every day, I spend my mornings working on my dissertation, take a break, have dinner, go the gym and then spend the whole night on my novel. I’m about 33.000 words in, so I’m going to make it. The piece I’m writing is parallel to the story of mine and my friends’. It’s about a Midwestern boy coming out to New York, escaping what he felt was an ordinary life back at home, while pursuing a more exciting life full of opportunities - and the struggles he finds along the way, especially while adjusting to the city.
