I've just pressed the submit button on my Laureate Fellowship application to send it to Canberra. So that's one grant application done, a few more to go.
About 12-18 months ago, I changed my main gaming platform from the PC to the XBox. At around the same time I registered my XBox gamertag on TrueAchievements.com. One interesting thing this means is that I can use Xbox achievement scores as a proxy of how much time I spend gaming. The graph below of my TrueAchievement Gaming Score for the month of January shows my two stages of grant writing-
1. starting writing (gaming reduces by 90%)
2. panic! (gaming time becomes zero)
