Just kidding.  After a few days home, I've returned to the Pittsburgh.  Events of note from this week - my return to the world of functional humans (I worked out... more than once!), dental work, new computer purchase (see picture) and internship sleuthing.  

Instead of talking about what job offers I have yet to receive, I shall discuss my new computer.  It's pretty cool - flips into a tablet - and was really cheap!  Probably because it runs mostly on the internet.  It's insane that for $150-200 bucks you can buy a computer that runs close to the capacity of a top of the line pc from 10 years ago.  First impressions: it's amazeballs.

In other news, I have a lot of work to do before I ship off to SF for the Game Developer's Conference (GDC) which is aka, Video Game expo extravaganza!  Someone mysterious from my program nominated me for a scholarship sponsored by Intel (I'm 95% positive it's because I'm a native English speaking woman in "Technology"... but whatevs! ) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In final news, my project parameters from the client have changed.  Instead of making an anti-cheating experience for graduate students, they want it for UNDERGRADUATES.  UGHghghghhghgghhghg So. Much. To. Change. I don't really have much to add besides WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. 

Blergh.

In final final news, I've downloaded the game "Firewatch" which is a branching narrative with incredible visuals.  See trailer below.  At my current rate of play, I'll finish the game by the year 2020.  Trying to stay current... the reluctant gamer.  

PS - In other media I've decided to share with my 5 followers, I have included 3 pictures from this here spring break.  Firstly, a hipster Golda mug, birthday present from Merav (Go for the Golda!).  Secondly, third wheel selfie #bluesteel.  Thirdly, Mabel hugging her little fox.
