Oh, no big deal, just prototyping a dynamic soundtrack for the halloween party's Forbidden Forest room that adjusts itself based on time and user feedback. Soothing forest sounds to help you sleep, plus thunder, plus creepy whispers and chanting, plus intimidating animal noises.

Spent the last several days designing a potions book for a Halloween party.

Oh, you know, just spending my evenings designing & manufacturing labware fixtures, like a normal adult human.
