I am a Robert Bosch Foundation Fellow for the 2011-2012 year!

I've known this since January but I didn't really believe it until this morning while I was looking at the sheet describing my apartment in Berlin. I'm moving to Berlin!! I literally squealed and did a little dance-y thing around my room and then my horoscope was all "you might have a very upbeat day." Correct Horoscope. Correct.

I'll be in Germany for a year and then who knows?? Turkey? Africa? New Zealand?

If I'm posting... indicates that i should be doing something else.

A new study shows that Coca-Cola is not as good at room temperature. A study of 1 graduate student in a library has definitely demonstrated that a room-temperature Coke is not as delicious as a cold one, contributing negatively to the development of weekend morale. Scientists suggest a cold beer or glass of wine may mediate the situation but until we make much-needed reforms to the library infrastructure, that remains a distant possibility. Researchers are urging Coke drinkers who will participating in full-day library trips to plan carefully so as to avoid aggravating an already-dismal situation.
