Well, I was right not to be excited about funding approval.
1. Whilst I am not grateful that they ignored my now-very-prescient concerns that they hadn’t confirmed they could provide a member of staff for the role they were creating, I am even more glad now that I was frank about my pessimism on Tuesday.
2. Put the dissertation aside and went outside for a bit. Going outside again now.
3. Remembered that I sometimes find nicotine useful in situations like these.
4. Refrained from doing anything violent or illegal.
