Good News

So I have some news that I'm finally ready to share. I have been accepted into the NSF EAPSI program for this summer. What this means is that I am going to Japan for two months this summer (from June 17 to August 21). The program is really awesome because it pays for everything (so far the only thing it doesn't seem to pay for is the poster I am required to make and print to give an idea of my research, but that's only about $100, right?). I was tentatively accepted back in Feb, but I didn't want to tell everyone until the Japanese host accepted me (which is the final acceptance). I got the email from Japan this week, so now I'm telling everyone! Tomorrow I go to DC for a meeting about the program so I should have more details soon if anyone wants to know more. I'm so excited!
