A summer research position in Vancouver is now official out of the pipe-dream category and firmly in the realm of possibility.
The last couple weeks or so I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about people’s future prospects. Grad schools offering huge stipends, big fancy engineering jobs, law school acceptances, and so on. Even though I have another year before graduating, meaning I don’t have any grad school acceptances or rejections to tally up, all of it made me feel a bit jealous. Like everybody else has been getting their life together except me.
Now yes, this is only a summer position on an as of yet unspecified research project, and the decision about whether I can accept it or not has yet to be made, but it sure feels good to be wanted.
