Grant proposal = submitted

FINALLY I got the grant proposal submitted to the Research Council, with 3 hours and 5 minutes to spare until the deadline. I wasn't sure there for a while, seeing as how various forces of administrative and bureaucratic evils conspired to screw me over something fierce the last two days, but I made it. Due to grant application writing being an extreme sport, I even had to skip the talk by none other than James Watson this Monday, which would've been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but I made it.

Now all I've got to do over the next three weeks is grade 15 undergraduate exams and one phD special topic assignment, make status report in the form of PowerPoint presentation, prepare my role as administrator for PhD defense, update web page, complete and submit two research papers, grade MSc thesis, write annual report and relocate to another office.
