I have been offered my first choice post-doc Fellowship! I broke from my normal frugal mindset had am having a thank you floral arrangement delivered to my thesis adviser's office tomorrow. Of course, I've already sent her a thoughtful letter expressing my gratitude. I'm sure she will appreciate the arrangement, but I imagine the letter probably holds more meaning. Regardless, I felt like a gift was in order.

She wrote me a great letter of recommendation and went out of her way to prepare me for the interview. In fact, the arrangement seems so minor in comparison to the appreciation I feel.

Grad school has been tumultuous, but it seems like the things that matter are falling into place.

    You should also feel good about your expression of gratitude. It's no easy job being an advisor, or on a team as I understand it. Many happy congratulations on your success!

    Wow! Congratulations!

    I can't think of a nicer token of appreciation than flowers. So few people give them anymore.

    Congratulations! The botanists never really gave flowers, they gave each other liquor instead. Big Grin
