32 days post-PhD.
Haven't started looking for full time work yet.
Don't know what is happening with the British post-study work visas.
Don't know if my contract will be extended (such is the life of a contract researcher in Britain).
Don't know if I will be able to do any grant writing or publishing whilst things are so uncertain.
Don't know if I will find a job in India that:
- Allows me to be close to my parents
- Is in a city that I can stomach (Mumbai, for instance, is out out out)
- Allows me to live with the Boy (*insert 100 related questions here...)
Don't know if I can stomach the thought of living in India (politics, pretence, about 1/6th of the current part time paycheck and difficult access to up to date research required in order to conduct more up to date research...) or staying in the UK (politics, pretence, difficulty accessing research sites in India and distance from my Dad).

Thud, thud, thud, THUD.
