First, I'm excited because this morning I got the final email confirmation that my NIH Postdoctoral Fellowship was officially uploaded (two days ago, which is one day before the deadline). Yay! I had chosen to submit it on the 30th of November, so sent all my materials to the Sponsored Programs Office at UC Berkeley for their review on the 18th of November. I'm so very glad I did because rather than be submitted on November 30th (well before the December 8th deadline), it didn't get officially submitted until the 7th of December. Eek! Good thing I planned ahead.
And, in case that is just too boring for your morning, please enjoy these pet "sounds":
