First, I survived the lab that I had to lead all by myself! I barely slept last night, woke up hours before my alarm and ran through my presentation over and over and over again. I had been dreading this day all semester, I really hate public speaking. But now it’s over (and I think it went really well)!
Then, I was starting to lose hope in receiving a research grant I had applied for (they told me it would be two to three weeks until I would hear back, and it’s been a full three). About an hour later, I got an e-mail that started with the word, “Congratulations”!
Could not be happier, I’ve been smiling all day long!
