I Know Nothing About Anything

Big day today.  I got my midterm process book back and was absolutely shocked by the response it received.  I got an A-!  It wasn't the horrible grade I was expecting.  Of course, that could be due to the fact that it's just the midterm and what we have done so far.  It isn't the final.  I hope that isn't the case though.  The instructor's comments made me feel really good about my work.  She said it was impressive.  IMPRESSIVE!!!  And here I thought that she overlooked me as a student and found interest in other students instead.  She thought my photography was great too!  The best part is that she overlooked the fact that I was missing a few parts that should have been included.  Maybe that is because I was so specific and detailed in what I did have in there.  Apparently my connections between my inspiration, the work of other designers, and my work is wonderful.  I was ecstatic about my grade!!
During that same class today, we watched a film about Milton Glaisure.  It was a pretty inspiring documentary-style film and I really enjoyed it.  I wrote down a few ideas that really stuck out for me while watching it.  I am considering using one of them as the title for my Process Book when I turn in the final draft at the end of the semester....at the end of this month.  
Tell me what you think of the following titles:
Do Good Work
I Know Nothing About Anything
The Silent Responsibility [or A Designer's Responsibility]
Also today, I did a lot of filming for my self-portrait video.  The main thing I filmed was releasing red balloons into the sky.  I took pictures and did actual film shots.  It did not turn out like I had imagined though because the wind was blowing hard.  The balloons kept getting stuck in my neighbor's tree.  I hope that I at least got some footage I can work with though.  
How was your day?  Did you do anything fun or exciting?  Tell me about it in a comment.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
