happy day!

Good news! Today I found out I have been accepted on a very prestigious training grant through our university!

I am so excited. The money is about the same, except with specific allocations for research equipment and travel and conference fees, but more importantly, it looks SO awesome on my resume. I can get my own funding. People believe in me. I have no idea why, but they do!

Hooray. This is huge! Trent and I went to dinner to celebrate, now back to work on my presentation on Friday, trying not to freeze in our chilly cottage.

Maybe I can do something about this discouraging graph I came across while reading AAAS. So darn sad.
