Warm greetings to the faithful Duke research blog readers out there! My name is Jimmy Wei, and I am honored to call myself the latest addition to the blogging team!
I just entered Duke as a freshman this year intent on majoring in economics with a possible double major in statistics. Currently, the plan is to apply to law school after undergrad, but at this point nothing is certain.
In my free time, I enjoy playing piano. About half a year ago I began an effort to learn how to improvise. Now, I am able to sit down and just play whatever it is I feel like playing, which I must say is one of the most useful abilities I’ve ever learned. Not only can I sit down and relax during stressful times, but I’ve also found that going into random common rooms and playing piano is a good way to meet new people!
Another little hobby of mine is filmmaking. I shot my first video in the end of sophomore year in high school for a calculus project. Since then, I’ve shot numerous short films for school projects, church events, and simply for pleasure. My favorite video was one made over the summer of 2009 about a Nerf gun war titled Against All Odds. With luck, I will be participating in Froshlife this year, hopefully directing Jarvis dorm’s entry!
I also love playing ping pong and basketball. This year I hope to refine my abilities in both.
I am looking forward to writing and contributing to this blog this year. It is my sincere wish that I will be able to help develop an extensive cult following for this blog. But if that doesn’t work out, I’m sure we’ll all have a great year nonetheless.
