matt, my very clever boyfriend, finished his BA in history this year with astoundingly good results all round (he got a first and prizes for the best dissertation, best student, best everything you could possibly think of) and he's doing a masters in october. he applied for 1+3 funding (for his masters year and 3 years of a PhD) from the research council, the open competition kind with only 100 places for everything related to economics and social stuff in the whole country. AND HE GOT IT! i am bursting with pride. he is such a legend. and this money will mean that he can just focus on his research and not have to worry. it will also mean that i can relax a little bit about finding enough supply work, at least temporarily.

YAY

So he got his forms in ok after all! Congratulations to both of you (because i'm sure he wouldn't do as well without you there!)
