I'm sure many people are stressing out about admissions so I thought I would help release the tension by starting a discussion on which areas of mathematics each of us is pursuing for graduate school and what led us to make that decision. Many people on this forum have quite the background from graduate courses so don't let them scare you. To each their own

My current interests are in Homotopy Theory and Algebraic Geometry. Although I don't have much knowledge of Algebraic Geometry beyond the first few sections of Hartshorne, whatever little part of it I saw was very intriguing. I've seen the categorical aspect of Homotopy Theory but never saw the algebraic topology side so I hope to study that in the spring.
