Today I submitted a Banting Post Doctoral Fellowship application to do an exciting project in Boston with STRIPED related to weight stigma and eating disorders. I haven't talked too much about this potential fellowship on social media because I was afraid I would jinx myself or that I wouldn't want to talk about not getting it if it doesn't get funded. But you know what? I'm really proud of the work I put into developing the proposal and I am excited about the new collaboration I built with a scholar whose work I really admire. This funding proposal getting accepted or rejected doesn't make or break me. Applying to many things and getting rejected is a part of my reality right now. I need to honour this time of building community and academic relationships, thinking about but not getting caught up in what is to come next, and carving out space for the multiple possibilities I'm keeping open. I don't know where I will be in a year, but I do know where I'll be tonight: relaxing in a bath with this fancy new sparkly pumpkin bath bomb.
