Oxford and Harvard and a fever, oh my!

My Spring Break has been spent catching up on sleep and going to baseball games. I haven’t spent too much time on the computer or reading but know I have to soon to prepare for 4Cs.

When I did check my email yesterday I found a fantastic bit of news:

Dear Daisy,

Thank you for applying for a place on the Oxford Internet Institute’s fifth
summer doctoral programme organised in partnership with The Berkman Center
for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School. The applications we received
were both diverse and excellent, and I am delighted to inform you that you
have been awarded a place in this year’s programme. Could you please let me
know by Friday 23rd March if you would like to accept this offer?

Naturally, I accepted and am freaking out over this opportunity to work on my dissertation with such an amazing faculty! I applied last year and didn’t get in, but I think revising my application to more clearly state my research methods and submitting a different writing sample worked this time. This year the programme is being held at Harvard so I get to go back to Boston, site of my intro to grad school life and many an evening in a coffee shop studying.

As for the fever mentioned in this post’s title, I don’t know if I was just so excited or if I’m down with a 24-hour bug, but I’ve been fluctuating between 102 and 99 all night. Right now the fever has broken, but I don’t know if it’s going to stay that way. Anyone have any home remedies I should know about?
