Of course, it only took about 8 freaking months to get to this point, despite my repeated insistence that I would help my collaborators get the damn thing written and get it submitted faster.

Still, TURNING POINT. I see a teensy speck of light at the end of the career tunnel. No big changes happening for at least a year or so, but this monster thing that's been in the works for a year and a half being done is definitely going to help me out when the time comes.

Despite all the other shite swirling around me in my life right now, this turned out to be a good day.

ETA: KINJA. Stop being a twit and show my damn GIFS already.
