The New Activities

Well, it really has been a while since I post something up. I was really really busy and didn't have time to surf the internet for fun. Gosh, I miss blogging, and reading people's blogs and commenting on them.

Anyway, for those who doesn't know, I'm working as a freelance translator right now. I don't need to go to office 'cause I can simply do the job right at home. I only translate English to Indonesian (and vice versa) because those are basically the languages I know =)

Anyhow, I was lucky enough to get a translating project 2 weeks ago. The project is for a local TV station here in Jakarta and I need to translate a TV series called "Early Edition" first season. I have 23 episodes in my hand that I need to finish, well, as soon as possible. I also need to put them in the format of subtitles (with time code and everything). That's basically why I don't blog so often anymore.

Right now, I have to allocate my time between taking care of my daughter (playing, feeding, bathing, etc.), cleaning up the house, cooking, and translating. It feels like I don't have enough time to do all that, but I just have to make the time. But at the end of the day, although I was exhausted, I felt happy and useful. I made a little money doing this translation job too, so that's a plus side :)

Unfortunately, until I finish this one project, I won't be blogging as much as I want to. I'd still try to find the time though, because I need to blog to relax (like right now). I have to log off now to attend to my little girl. I'll try to blog again soon ....


  1. Hi Jan,
    I'm glad to hear about the jobs, income is always good. Trying to balance a family and work is difficult to say the least.
    We will be here when you do find the time.
    Have a wonderful weekend,

  2. Wow, Early Edition! That was one of my favourite shows! Have fun and may God bless your work. :)

  3. Wow good luck with all of that.


  4. I'm glad things are starting to get better in your life, well at least as a start. Congrats on the projects! It's challenging to balance work and family but it's a good thing that you can do your work from home. Now I can't wait to take a peek at this Early Edition series.
