My big news in the form of a riddle...sort of.

If a game of ping pong represented funding, and I was the dude in blue, what would you guess happened to me?










If you guessed obtain my own funding, then you are correct. I actually received the good news back in June, but I didn't want to write about it until I actually received the fellowship money.

And yes, I did dance around just like that guy.
