So here’s the camera…

February 18, 2010

A few months ago (and posts ago), I promised to myself I would acquire a webcam for the purposes of remote interpreting. Here’s a list of a few things I learned:

  • It is probably best that I don’t focus too much on how I look on camera. I spent too much time obsessing about a zit or two (or seven) and trying to find a “good” side.
  • I am going to have to get good with this thing before I actually rely on it for actual interpreting.
  • The packaging for the camera? Huge. The actual camera, now affixed to my monitor? Tiny. It fits in the palm of my hand.

Videos soon to follow.

The parents are gone! (sniff!)

My parents’ visit came to an end too soon.

And I don’t say this just because on more than one occasion they picked up the tab for dinner or because my mother scrubbed out my refrigerator (Yes, I know I mentioned this before. Sue me). I miss their presence. Their witty conversation. The fact that they love me and encourage me to pursue my new career goal. s remain as usual.

Since my last posting, I had one interpreting gig, which went OK. I can’t remember if I wore the Pantsuit of Justice or if I managed to assemble some other Outfit of Justice that was more appropriate for the weather.

And in other news…it has been suggested that I acquire a webcam in order to do remote interpreting. I am going to look into that.
