Got a gig with the big Womans University here...... the faculty of Buddhist University and the big Womans University are slightly intertwined, at least in translation and the big Womans University translation unit needs editors.
I turns out I have skills in this area...
I turned out a massive intergovernmental project in a few days, and it looks (hard to tell because the people who send out the money info aren't as "Englishee" as the translators) that my first job will be about $1.6k.
This would help me and my enchanted bride in our trip to Oz....
Later, I got a call from a local TV station. They would like to interview me about my interest in Korean literature.
This sent me directly to the gym, as though one hour there per day could take away the pounds and ravages of the last semester. ;-)
Eternally optimistic in the short term, and dead pessimistic on the long haul. ^^
