I'm having a good day.
And if a victory by Barack Obama isn't enough to get me fired up today, after I taught class one of my students came up and said, "You know, I'm just telling you because you probably don't hear this enough, but you're a really good professor." Isn't it cute when they call grad students professors? In any case, I'm actually pretty touched by this and, since this student is doing pretty (though not excessively) well, I can hopefully take it seriously.
Academia! Fuck yeah!
