Well, since I have now noticed that this thread is still active (I didn't know that it was pinned), time for an update!
Last year I managed to obtain my fellowship for the PhD in Cosmology, so I'm currently working on it. Yay! My work now concentrates on cosmological simulations (programs that simulate the evolution of the universe with different cosmological parameters) and their comparison with actual observations. So if one day you'll read the answer about the life, universe and everything, it will mine!
