State of the Projects, March 2017

I don’t know if anyone enjoys these or not, but they are helpful for me to write.

PhD

Still waiting on examiners’ reports. It will be 3 months on Monday, so I really do expect to hear shortly.

#Jobsearch

Continues to be unsuccessful. 9 rejections and 1 job cancelled to date. Still have a few ‘out there’. I have picked up an array of casual positions (some adjunct work, some language tutoring, some marking, and some other things), so at least there will be some money coming in.

Articles

I sent off one article for a journal about a week ago. I have the core of a second article done but it needs another revision and strengthening. No shortage of other things to write on, but time is very short these days.

Translations

I’m almost finished a first pass through Gregory of Nyssa’s De Deitate. It’s not difficult, it’s quite enjoyable, but again time is short. The second pass will be much quicker, and I should be able to get a patristic reader text, a publishable (?) translation, and maybe some thoughts for an article or two.

Blogging plans

We got started on our textbook review series. I missed this week though. Still, good to be blogging a bit more, and hopefully more to come.
