End of year

This year seems to have gone by in a flash – only four more days are left of it! It’s been quite turbulent for me, thankfully mostly good, with a few changes thrown in.
The biggest change was my accepting a job as teacher for interpreting, at-sight translation and terminology and computer-assisted translation, plus the classes I am subbing (general translation and a prep course for the IHK translator exam). It has been great fun, even if it is also challenging at times and takes a lot of time for preparation etc., but I like it and I think I am actually pretty good at it.
The last few weeks have been somewhat crazy, since I had my 12 hours to teach, plus a full load of translations, including a new client for whom I actually get to do translations that are in what I like to call my „real“ specialty, music. I am really excited about having landed that job, especially since it is a recurring one (a guitar magazine). However, it also meant that my Christmas this year was not quite as relaxing as I had planned, since the holidays in the US are shorter than here in Germany (we have three days of Christmas). I still got to spend some time with my family, though, so all is well, even if I am having to work while my office is officially closed.
And it’s not all work – I still have some more fun things planned this year and will greet 2014 in style.

I hope your year was a good one, not only professionally but especially regarding your private life.
I wish you an even better 2014, with health, happiness and fun! I hope to see and hear from many of you in the next twelve months!
