Well, after the trials and tribulations of the last few weeks I've finally found some employment for next year. It wasn't the job I really, really wanted, but was the job I really wanted, so that's OK. If anything the one I have been offered will be much more interesting (an Applied Researcher) but suffered slightly from paying less, then again, it's not based in London so wins in that respect.
Now I can get back to worrying about important things, like my degree. Yay!
