PhD studies, here I come!

I was discussing my future in a previous entry and at at that time I was trying to decide if I should submit my dissertation proposal or not. I ended up submitting it and figured I wouldn't get in, since I re-wrote the proposal in two weeks and the topic changed quite a bit. I hear some people spend months writing their proposals, so my chances of getting in to the PhD program where rather slim in my opinion.

If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen the news :), but it turned out that my proposal was accepted and I will become a PhD student this fall! I already discussed things with my supervisor and I can continue my studies even if we move back to the U.S., so that's all sorted out. And I'm feeling a bit more optimistic about my new topic. 

Acceptance package, which was a very nice surprise :)

Now I just have to finish my MBA thesis before I start my PhD studies, no biggie :D
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday!

Random Tuesdays is a day late this week thanks to a vaccine that gave this blogger a lovely allergic reaction. Yesterday was a bit tough, but I'm doing better now though :-)
