But as to what made me happy:
Good feedback from BOTH my professor and adviser on my final paper draft! (Though my adviser still wants me to incorporate film.... FINE! Crikey. Guess I've got some movies to watch!)
Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
Went into a thrift store came out with a brand new temperature control stainless steel self heating thermal mug and a book titled "Procedural Elements for Computer Graphics", all for $5. I'm now drinking an eternally hot mug of tea and reading about seed fill algorithms.
