So I haven't been blogging lately, because I've been kinda busy with protests and stands and sit-in and political discussions and and and--

I feel like the world stood still for a month, and life won't get back to normal until we finish this revolution.

However, I got some good news! On the 10th, I got accepted into the Comp Lit MSc program at University of Edinburgh. Unfortunately, this is unfunded, so I was going to apply for a scholarship over here (and given the current situation, I don't know if there'll be that many scholarships granted this year).

But yesterday I got some even better news: I got into the ME studies PhD program at NYU! Not only that, but with full funding for 5 years, through a McCracken fellowship! :D Eeee! EEEEEEEEEEE!

NYU's not my first choice, but now I can relax, knowing that I've got a place to go next September. And also, that my application was not total crap, and I have a shot at other prestigious schools.
