I spent the bulk of the morning writing in my office. Around 1:30, well, at 1:34 pm MST to be exact, I received an email from the Fulbright U.S. Scholar program informing me that I have received a Fulbright scholarship to Romania for the fall of 2016. I read the email twice and then I picked up my laptop and took it into my dean’s office and asked him to read the email because I was reading this as good news but I wanted to be sure before I called my wife. He confirmed my interpretation!
When I got home, Sujata and I left the kids at home and went for a drink. It took awhile to sink in and I’m not entirely sure that it has totally sank in–that might take some time anyway.
So, the final shoe has dropped and we can begin planning our trip next year.
Tomorrow I’ll look for a someone who can teach us Romanian!
