Obviously, I wasn't burning up the blogosphere last month. I did, however, write and submit my first proposal for a post-doctoral fellowship. It was a learning experience to be sure. I had no idea how much the university was involved in the process and I had no idea how many zillions of documents I would need to upload. At least next time there won't be as many surprises.
The funding rate for this particular fellowship is around 18%, which is apparently not that bad. The proposal is well-written and in general, my advisor and I both think it's a good proposal, but I'm not getting my hopes up. After all, this is my first application. I'm still in the "thank the fucking lord that's over with," state of mind.
I'll be trying my best to catch up on all the blog posts I missed this week.
