He became the god of daydreaming or “mind wanderings” as he is able to alter his state of mind and think of things that please him during the daytime.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
