gtg said...

thankyou muchly. it's in the genes, you know. . .

just a few favours here and there, nudge nudge wink wink! nah, fill in a bunch of forms, sell my self shamelessly, academic record, reference letter, blah blah.

now i have to write a letter of appreciation to my nameless benefactor. i am very grateful to them, apart from the obvious i can afford to pay my tution fees angle, because they're supporting kidlit, so often neglected in academia.

very exciting!

well done you!

is is rude to enquire how rich you are now?

blame my brutish ignorance.

i don't think it's rude for you to ask, but is it rude for me to brag online? (more than i already have, i mean)

it is $1500, which is not terribly much as scholarships go, but covers the amount i figured i would be short after this trip, housing fees, tuition fees and buying all my set texts. in other words, it is the perfect amount!
