Better luck next time!

This year I applied for several huge grants to get my world's fair project rolling along, including the Guggenheim Fellowship, the most prestigious of the bunch, which awards $47000 to make work and do research. Today I received the sad news that this year, I did not receive it. I knew that you have to be a bit more established with your career than I currently am---but still, I had a glimmer of hope that they would love my project and see the enormous potential in it. What have I learned? Keep making work, and try again next year!
