Maybe I'm in. The idea is growing on me . . .
You made my day with this post, PetetheCat. I really enjoyed reading your posts for the past few months and you're definitely one of my favorite people here. Actually, I don't believe I rooted more for anyone to get the fellowship this year – ok, except for me.
I was really disappointed to find out you didn't get it and I was particularly saddened to see you lose your good spirits.
I received shitty, inconsistent reviews myself. Bottom line, my proposal was exceptional, but at the same time it wasn't. So I completely understand how you feel. But my gut tells me that you’re one of those people who are really passionate about doing research. And they’re so rare. Unfortunately, even amongst those who did get the fellowship.
So I am happy to see you getting hopeful again and maybe next year we’ll both celebrate a better outcome.
