A sharp dresser and political enthusiast, Bill burns his time obsessing over his grades and doing homework. He doesn't think that his life is boring, he thinks it's goal-oriented. He likes Netflix and chill on the weekends though. People also think that he's a little bit... eccentric, to say the least, but who knows, he might be Minnesota's Representative for the 5th Congressional district in the future!
