And Liz also got PhD funding which makes it extra brilliant because we'll both be in Sheffield, doing what we want and there for each other.

And we both got studentships, which means that we don't have to wait until the end of August to find out.

And apparently it is quite rare for two people in the same department to both get a university studentship, which just goes to show how brilliant we are.

And it means I will be in Sheffield again, so I can move in with Matt and we will no longer be restricted to only seeing each other when exhausted after rushing several hundred miles.

And I will almost certainly see my London friends MORE when living in Sheffield than I have when living in London, because I will no longer be exhausted and tied to stupid working hours, and I can come and stay with them.

And other unideal situations will also cease to be.

I can't believe I got PhD funding. It is one of those things I always dreamed of doing but secretly feared I might die without ever managing, like writing a children's book. And I am also doing something ground-breaking which will actually make a difference to people's lives (library services for LGBT young people and parents). I can't believe it. I can't believe it!!

Oh, that's amazing! SO happy for you. ^________^ Congratulations, I can only imagine how hard you must have worked to earn this. Enjoy, and good luck!

(Also I haven't seen you in ages! Is there anything that could be done about this?!)

And have you read the book "How to get a PhD" yet? I can loan it to you if you like, It's rather good, though possible I think that as I read it 3 years in and found much it said not to do I had done!

Have a wonderful PhD!

I woke up this morning and just thought 'we rule'. Ace, ace ace.

Though I also woke up with 'Girlfriend' by Avril Lavigne in my head, and now I can't stop listening to it.
