tense: use present perfect, past, and simple present in one sentence?

0

Can I use present perfect, past, and simple present together in one sentence? See the following example:

 

"My job-hunting has been put in abeyance as I found that my English competency is far from sufficient."

Thank you. So it implies that I cannot use past tense "found" here, right? CF LOKSep 23 '11 at 07:08

In present continuous tense, it should be "I am reading", instead of "I reading", right? CF LOKSep 25 '11 at 03:32
