I've recently dropped out of a semi-regular sales job. My goal was to make as much money as I could throughout the day, which consisted of a prolonged afternoon and an averaged morning. After a while things start following a certain routine, and we, kind of, become the routine. Have that ever happened to you before? Realizing what was happening and not fighting the change that was taking place all around your self. I did, for a while, and then I chose to take my destiny into my own hands and quit that compromising gig. But how had I ended up there in the first place? Why was I working with a company that I didn't feel like working with? And why on hell am I telling you this?
I know you all love to hear about how many different times/places/ways I've been fucked... but this blog is supposed to include that other major part of my life, getting fired. So here goes...
Let's set a couple ground rules for this one, okay?
One of the primary challenges of professional translation is that of striking a balance between fidelity to the source material and the need to sacrifice word-by-word parallelisms in favor of really getting the source material’s message across.
Camera-Shyness - feeling uncomfortable to speak, act or even be in-front of a camera. It’s natural. Knowing that your every move will be recorded and can be played back is intimidating and most people cannot let go when in-front of the camera.
Working as a Librarian for a day may sound like the most boring job in the world, but my building of books is home to me.
Okay, maybe plenty of people knew that. And to be fair, I kinda knew that was the case? But also kinda not?
Hi, my name is Katrina I am going to tell you a story about when I was at work and I encountered a guy in a barrel wanting to gain access to the football game that was being held at that venue at that moment in time.
It could happen to anyone. If you had been there, you might have made the same mistake. I was working for the Toronto office of Warner Brothers. It was my first day on the job and I had a lot to learn.
I’m in the middle of being scammed for the second time in less than a week. This time I know I’m being scammed; this time I will not end up $400 light. I know the score, and I’m going through the motions once more for the purpose of research, and a bit of sadism.
Some pranks are so good, that you will never forget them. You can hear them told, but seeing it first hand really burns them in. I had the great pleasure of being front row seat to one of them and I can honestly say this will stay with me forever. It’s my happy place and obviously one of my fondest memories of working at this location.
