    Selling during a pandemic

    Selling during a pandemic

    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?

    The Joys and Challenges of Translating Comedy

    The Joys and Challenges of Translating Comedy

    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-Shy

    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.

    When the job hunter becomes the prey

    When the job hunter becomes the prey

    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.

    The Best Office Prank

    The Best Office Prank

    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.
