This is How I Feel

princess me Like a Disney Princess!  My dreams are coming true!  (I didn't have a princess crown, so I had to use the next best thing.)

I am so happy and so excited!  A week ago I mentioned I had an interview I was excited about, but I didn't want to say more because I didn't want to jinx it.  Well, yesterday I found out I got the Fellowship!!!!

I can hardly believe it.  I nearly started crying.  It's only a 10 week summer Fellowship, but it's with my dream-job organization, so I pretty much consider it my dream job.  A fellowship with Creative Commons.  A Google Policy Fellowship with Creative Commons.  Wow.

Mommy and Daddy are happy, probably mostly because I'll be getting paid (it's a stipend) for working for the first time in 6 years.  And they're happy because I'm happy.  I think Mr. Trizzle is as excited as I am.  He gets it.  He knows how awesome this is; how important Google and CC are in this field (the field I'm trying to make "my" field), and how much this is exactly where I want to be.  It couldn't get more perfect.  Yet, somehow, I think it'll still only go up from here.


On another happy side note: my presentation went well today and the class and professor liked my report.  In fact some of the students complained about my being in the group to go first because I set the bar too high.  And here I thought I was just having fun with my homework ;)  If anyone wants to see the whole report, let me know and I'll email it to you.  It's quite humorous, I think.


[...ok, now I have to go do my 24-hr take home final...]

A pirate hat is as good as a crown? (I guess you have a better tiara, then munchkinhead ;) ). I think that dress fits you better know than it did when it was first made! Congratulations again!

Why not? What's Munchkinhead's tiara like? And I think you're right about the dress - except now I have nowhere to wear it.

congrats big! i am very excited for you!!! :-D i know what it's like to get the fellowship (internship in my case) that you really want!

Munchkinhead doesn't have a tiara (much to her chagrine) - but she does have a pirate captain's hat! So if you're pirate hat is the next best thing to a crown - then I guess her pirate's captain hat is the next best thing to a tiara?!?!
Could you wear the dress to the barrister's ball - or isn't it the right style?

goldenrail said...

Ummm... not really barrister's style. Why don't you get munchkinhead a tiara for easter?
