And sometimes you win one...

Shifter here. I just got good news. This grant that I and a colleague submitted a few months ago has been funded. It's a tiny grant, one of the smallest I've gone after, and won't pay me any money or do much for my career in and of itself. But it's fun, and if it works will set us up to do even more fun, cool stuff. In fact, if it works out and we stick with it, I could be doing research on a topic I love and that has been almost unresearched since it's inception. It would make me very happy. We wrote the proposal in about 10 days, which was insane, so it was a lot of work but it paid off this time. As easy as it is to complain in these web pages, it's worth noting when something cool happens too.
