what you want to see in your inbox at 1 a.m. on some random thursday.

Dear [drbolte],

I’m pleased to inform you that you have been awarded a Kirkland Dissertation Fellowship for this coming academic year. Congratulations! We will notify you more formally by letter soon, and the letter will explain in greater detail the terms of your award, but I wanted to let you know asap. The Kirkland Committee was impressed with your work and we look forward to your brilliant career.

Best Wishes,

[graduate coordinator who i love]

(thank you for your prayers and good wishes and confidence and encouragement and just in general for being awesome. and mainly for putting up with my whining for three solid weeks.)
