Working in my 4th year of PhD

Hi all.

I'm currently in my writing up phase of my PhD (4th year), and my funding ran out last September (end of the studentship). Since then i have done numerous jobs here and there to get by such as teaching etc, but I am now about to start a full time job for 4 months as a Research Assistant.

I need this job to live - i can't afford not to work. My question is, is it possible to juggle both of these commitments? I'm aware that i still have a lot of work to do on my PhD, and i do have extenuating circumstances that would allow me to receive an extension come September 2019.

Any thoughts, guys?

Thank you :)

I have a dissertation to write by end of September, but due to numerous academic and personal issues, i don't see me being able to finish on time. I have been notified that i am able to receive a month's extension if needs be. However, i am starting a PhD on 1st of October.
I am just wondering how would this be received by my PhD supervisor, as i will essentially be starting my PhD whilst also trying to finish my MA dissertation. I don't see this going down well with her at all to be honest.

Have i just screwed things up for myself?

Any advice greatly appreciated.
