It’s Wednesday again, but after all those nights I’m this close to formally finishing my translation project. All that’s missing are the footnotes for the actual translated text — that’ll take some work, but probably won’t take a whole evening — and the bibliography/references. After that, I can just email the thing to my professor, and spend the weekend no longer having to worry about it constantly. Finally.
Now if I can only forget that my submission probably won’t hold a candle to some of my classmates’ projects, and I’ll be good for a while.
Speaking of good… My shift today was uncharacteristically relaxed. Instead of being swamped by calls as usual, there were huge intervals in between calls, but that was easily explained by the fact that we have new hires on the floor. I’m guessing that, as they’re technically in their nesting period (and as such under active surveillance), they were given a higher priority on the call queue. That said, the fact that I was able to take in calls at a leisurely pace really helped, as far as my temper is concerned that is.
Might as well enjoy things while they last though. Experience tells me that it’ll back to the usual next week, but with the added warm bodies on the floor for the morning shift, at least the tail end of my workweek will become somewhat bearable again.
