This is not particularly mountain-related, but I am now a NSF Graduate Research Fellow! I found out last night that I'm a recipient of the fellowship! My funding is taken care of for the next three years (I'll never have to TA again!), I have a very prestigious line to add to my resume, and I get a 25% raise. I guess it's kind of mountain-related, since I can now afford more stuff. I'm quite excited by this.
