Yesterday was Student Research Day, where I presented my research on MMOs, and over 200 other students had their posters on display, as well. It was a pretty packed arena that afternoon as students and professors looked at everything other people had done. Some projects were pretty surprising. My friend Tracy did a geography poster on a military analysis of terrain, based on the data from a real-life paintball game she participated in. She's awesome like that. I was seriously impressed.
In case you missed it, the link to download my research and read it yourself can be found in THIS POST.
With that day now over, my research is 100% behind me. No longer do I need to spend hours camped in the windowless research lab. I finished the harder of two story revisions for my English capstone, so I no longer need to spend hours at a keyboard (for the next few days, at least).
After a long weekend of rain and thunderstorms, the sun has returned at last. Much of the work off my shoulders, no more girlfriend anxieties, and now beautiful weather, I'm feeling as good as I have in months! Life is awesome! (I'm one of those people whose mood is fairly strongly influenced by the weather.)
So, before I settle in to an evening of trying to advance my second playthrough of Silent Hill, or playing more Gears with the Justice League (my random nickname for my frequent Gears partners), I'm going outside to get some reading homework done.
It's time to soak up that sunshine.
