Would love if someone could help me get me back to my cozy Cygwin terminal.

It sounds like PS1 isn't being set. This is normally done in
/etc/profile. You might start by comparing /etc/profile with
/etc/defaults/etc/profile. They should be identical unless you've
customized /etc/profile at some point.
The postinstall script for the base-files package should have taken care
of updating /etc/profile, so you could also check to make sure the
script was executed.
