(Title from the KT Tunstall song mentioned in the previous post)
The less exciting thing about working from home is that you don’t have an IT department you can call if your internet connection goes down. That happened to me today. No problem, I thought, I’ll just go the cafe down the street because they have free wi-fi. Well, I didn’t consider that maybe they use the same provider that I do, so they didn’t have internet either. No worries, I still enjoyed a good cup of hot chocolate and did some translating before venturing out to the next internet cafe.
Luckily the next one I found had readily working internet, so I could work. I could translate without the internet, but having internet access is so valuable because sometimes there is terminology that is specific to a field, and most of the time I like to do research on the subject of the translation before I delve into it. Luckily, I was saved by the internet cafe, where I am sitting right now.
This is a document from a new agency who I hope will like what I do and take me on for more work in the future. I like this assignment as it’s interesting and I understand it very well. A moment ago, I was typing and researching away, when I looked up and saw my reflection in the mirror (I am facing a mirrored wall). I saw that I look happy. Relaxed. At peace. I’m not wearing any makeup today, which I think normally makes me look tired, but today I look comfortable and refreshed. I look good. I feel good. I’m doing what I’m supposed to do, what I want to do in my heart of hearts.
This is what I want to be.
