April 5th 2011

Had my first consecutive interpreting gig last week: went to a workers' comp medical exam with a Chinese man, helped him fill out forms and communicate with the doctor. Good practice... It wasn't so much difficult but figuring out my role and how to handle myself. Hope I get paid soon. Speaking of money, an agency ignored my invoice for a small project, after a reminder got no replies either, I totally thought it was hopeless and was ready to write it off as a necessary part of being a freelancer with no protection. As one last try, I emailed someone else at the company and actually heard back. Yay.
