There is a translation agency I've been working for since October (let's call it M for future reference).

For the first three months, they only sent me translations once in a while. Since the beginning of January, they adopted a new habit: now they normally send me translations on Friday evening and ask me to do them by Monday.

This week, they sent me a 5-page translation (the one I mentioned in my previous post, actually) on Thursday, and I thought, Oh, maybe this week my Friday evening will be mail-free!

And guess what? They've just sent me two new translations to do by Monday!


But then, I really, really need a new wardrobe for my historical dresses :)

What? Once is a while is ok, but seriously - no! Obviously freelancers don't need days off.
This was one of the reasons why I don't do much freelance work anymore, the money is nice, but I like having days off (not that I don't have work weekends now as well - and I don't even get paid for it.)

Historical dresses??

Historical dresses! What time period? Also, do you wear them to any events?

You should share pictures, especially of the 18th century one.

Good grief, that doesn't seem fair! Good luck with it though!

At least it's a good sign right? It means they like your work!

How many historical dresses have you got? Sounds interesting. Any pics?

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...
