Excuse me while I resist the urge to hyperventilate from a mixture of terror and joy:
I've been offered the Mary Churchill-Humphrey grant to study in the UK. I'll be at the University of Liverpool, 2013-2014, fully funded. That means I can attend the 2013 World Fantasy Con! Also that I can complete the world's only Science Fiction Studies M.A. And, luckily, because this is a one-year graduate program, I can bring my partner with me on my visa.
I already have started looking around our apartment in despair. We own so much shit, you guys. I've already started polling family on who wants to help store what.
My mother claimed the library, hah.
