For the travel grant to which I'm applying, I need to submit a transcript (shocker). So I'm looking at it online and I see this:
Advanced to Candidacy: Doctor of Philosophy
And I'm looking at it like, 'When did that happen?'. I'm this close being a D o' P? Whaaaaa? Sure, it was me who made all those decisions to get to this place, but for a moment there it was almost like 20 year old me was transported into 29 year old me and she was shocked. And kind of proud.
Has that ever happened to you?
