It’s the beginning of December, 2011 and I am still pretty excited because yesterday I received a letter from RMIT University in Melbourne that I have been appointed a scholarship and can start my PhD. I am so thrilled, I really have trouble believing it. A University is going to pay me to do the thing I love to do the most. My job is to come up with a new idea, study and make ceramics and write (i’d love to write a book!) and, they will pay my way!!! Is anything better?
