Outside of those three, I don't know who you might be referring to.

      That being said, I feel terribly awkward about my situation. If I can't afford to move to the outskirts of London, it's not going to look good on my CV. (And my e

      • The position I was referring to is some time ago, while you were in the US. If your employer is reading this now: "we're not trying to steal Ovid now...!"

        Good luck with what ever happens!
