These last weeks, I met a few students and professional who wanted to know more about free-lance translation. I usually tell them about the many pros and the few cons, about the extras, but most of all, I tell them about my daily life.
They would ask « How do you manage to get up in the morning? Isn’t it hard to be on your own 24/7? What’s your typical lunch? »
Well, here it is:
And this one was balanced!
For those who still relish to eat all alone in front of the midday TV news, there’s another option that I haven’t tried yet: colunching.
You probably know about coworking, which allows authors and translators to work and meet in a shared space. Well, the colunching was created in France a few months ago. The main website is colunching.fr, but you’d better go on their dynamic facebook page. The idea is pretty simple: you book a seat on a table shared by 8 colunchers max, and there you go, meeting new people over a nice meal!
Be sure to share your colunching experiences or your lunch-tray photos!
And – cherry on the cake - we wish you a great and happy New Year on NJATB!
