Scholarship: Acquired

Last time I wrote something about the scholarship, I promised that I would post at least one more entry concerning this attempt to go to Taiwan to study Chinese for a year. Today, I received an e-mail that will enable me to post far more than this single entry. I am happy to announce that my application for the scholarship was successful, and that the money it grants me will enable me to go to Taiwan for a year. I still have not quite taken in all of this, so please bear with me if I am more confused than is normally the case.

So, what happens now? I have a lot of administration to do, like sending a health certificate confirming that I am not HIV positive (that would be a surprise), applying for a visa, making sure that one language centre in Taiwan will receive me, and checking my insurance. My intention is to clear these items with maximum efficiency, considering that everything has to be settled at the end of June. I will take no chances.

I am sorry if this post is a bit terse, but my emotions are otherwise engaged. My intention is of course to cover this adventure and wonderful opportunity more closely than I do my everyday life in general. Once I have left Sweden, there will doubtlessly be more musings about my life, since I now believe that I have something interesting to tell, and since my website will provide me with a link to Sweden. But for now, I will just be content relaxing for a while and letting it all sink in. Needless to say, I am very grateful for this opportunity and I am sure that it will be truly rewarding in every sense of the word.
