Good news today. It looks like I’ll be staying in Cambridge longer term. I’m working a few hours a week in the front office at Tyndale House and working on the PhD in the Tyndale library for the rest of the time, and this present temporary arrangement is moving into something more permanent. I’m hoping to find privately rented accommodation in Cambridge from the end of June, though there is a possibility that I could stay on at Tyndale.
It’s very nice to have a bit more certainty in my immediate future and it’s very nice not to have to face the prospect of moving to another new place all over again. I’m glad to be earning some money and the job is just the right mix of interesting without being stressful, and enough hours to pay the bills without eating too much into the study time. And the library here is by far and away the best place I could have wanted to be for the work that I’m doing on the Song.
It’s been hard to keep focussed on the PhD over the last few months and progress has been quite a lot slower than I had hoped for. Moving to Cambridge has certainly helped to regain some of that and I think that being settled here will be a big help too.
