News are not always good news

I know I haven’t updated for a while. Nothing much happening, except for more thesis reading.

Today I had news from FQRSC, one of three grants I applied for. Not as good as I wish they had been. Not that I mind not getting a grant, since I’m better off with the money from UofA anyway. The big disappointment is, that out of 30 applications in my competition, I ended, wait for it… last. 30th. Out of 30. What did I do wrong? I’ve never been last at anything academic in my entire life. What happened?
