So either one actually cares what happens to me or my pathetic attempt at an April Fool's Joke was so patently obvious that everyone ignored it. Contrary to my previous post I actually was the recipient of that competitive scholarship and will be spending the entire summer basking in the warm glow of the German sun, most likely in Freiburg. Two months entirely paid for by the Germans. It is a pretty sweet deal and a good thing for my career and I am generally really really really really excited about it. Now if only I didn't have that pesky classwork hanging over me to ruin the buzz.
