An Amazing day full of Amazing News

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am so so so excited! First of all, I've been struggling as a PhD student, on PhD student salary for the past two years. I each year I apply for government funded scholarships, but they are obviously very competetive, but this year I GOT IT!!!! which means I get a pay raise (yes! yes! yes!) as well as a research allowance which my proff said I can use towards a new computer and attending a conference in Europe....

Secondly my SO got pre-approved for a mortgage today. We got the mortgage based on his salary alone and a 5 % downpayment (even though we can afford more). He has a bonus that he didn't include in the pre-approval and of course my salary which means we should be good to afford all our bills etc. so this summer is HOUSE HUNTING! (which also means I can adopt a dog)...............
