Last month I wrote about how Jonathan was applying for a sponsorship so he could attend the Ubuntu Developer’s Conference in Brussels, Belgium. Today he got word that it has been approved! They will foot the bill for his airfare and hotel, and he will be on the hook for his food. And souvenirs.

That leaves him with a long list of ducks to get in a row. He will need to renew his passport, get an ATM card for his bank account, and get a job so his bank account has something in it. Not to mention make travel arrangements. The conference is the second week of May, which is the week after finals for him.

I am very proud of him for getting this, and also very happy that he has this opportunity. I am also terrified!

Also, I now have this song stuck in my head.
