Default Sweet Sweet Justice

So I got awarded a research fellowship in artificial intelligence. Full Scholarship. My school is #1 for AI. The first thing I did? Who was the most important person to tell first? Was it mom? Neh. Was it dad? It was not.

Went to linkedin
Updated my title
Sent an invite to a manager who didn't hire me for a data science role in 2017

Is this petty? Yes. Is it called for? Yes. Would I do it again? yes. Will I do it again if I win any other awards? Yes. Will they be the first to know? YES. Why? Because we achieve not for our own satisfaction - we achieve because it allows us to flex on other other people.

Does this manager who didn't hire you for a data science role in 2017 even remember who you are? NO

Where are your priorities?

At least, I assume, you did post in on the AO before telling your family.

Congratulations.

I'm confused. The AO is my only family.

Also at the top grad schools almost everyone there is on "full scholarship" via grant money or fellowship.
