The answer is yes.
I've been quiet for a while, friends.
Probably because I believed it was too good to be true.
I have a job!
As a translator.
And guess what?
I love it!
I keep pinching myself, but after 3 weeks I think it just may be real.
You see, there's
a full agenda
different projects every day
a work email address
a lunch break
gel pens and highlighters galore
I would take pictures of it all, but then my French colleagues would REALLY think the American's weird. I'm doing my best to break them in gently...
No longer a lady of leisure, I now spend my days translating, re-reading, editing, doing quality controls, contacting clients, bouncing ideas around -it's FANTASTIC.
But since I have a history of landing jobs that don't work out thanks to crazy French bureaucracy, I only thought it appropriate to wait until payday so as not to jinx the whole affair. It's real.
Happy weekend to all!
So your wife just had a baby..
