I got PhD funding!
I didn't feel the overwhelming, adrenaline-fuelled excitement that I thought I might - probably because i was still in bed and half-asleep when i got the call from the guy in Trinity - but I do feel something even better: a huge sense of RELIEF that I have a life-plan for the next three or so years.
The best thing is not having to go through the horrendous fear and loathing of looking for a job after this Masters is done. Horrific flashbacks of my last 'job' haunted me as i updated my CV the other night. But now I can go back to Dublin, arse around for the summer, and then start getting *paid* to arse around from October! Whilst carrying out profoundly important and deeply significant research into migrant labour-market integration as well, of course...
Allow me to reiterate myself: HOORAY!
