Meet Tobias Gurl’12, who could eat spaghetti for every meal

February 13, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Tobias

Name/year of graduation: Tobias Gurl’12
Hometown/residence:
Madison, Wis.
Major:
Health and society, with a minor in political science.
You may have seen me:
Walking back from WAC in an outrageous costume, or looking spiffy at a ballroom dance.
What’s on your desert island jukebox?
I would say every Viennese Waltz song ever written, but it's awfully difficult to waltz alone on sand while dodging a palm tree, so we'll go with the complete R.E.M. discography.
Favorite meal?
Spaghetti. I could eat spaghetti for every meal, as long as I got to make the sauce and add additional toppings.
Any advice?
Use the phrase "beyond the scope of this paper" as often as possible. It will serve you well.
What do you do in your free time?
Someone finally figured out that nerdy people will exercise if you structure workouts like a video game: earning experience points, completing quests, competing with friends. Huge chunks of my spare time have been devoured by my determination to level up. Just...one...more...rep...!
