Just got news today that I've been offered an Arabic teaching assistant job at our local university from September... I'm still very excited and nervous - will probably be so for a long time. It's the first non-translation, non-freelance job I've had in eight years, but I'm really looking forward to it.
I never imagined I'd be so excited about leaving my self-employed status/ translator existence behind, so I'm still not quite sure if I'm being foolish, if I'm just liking the idea that I'll finally be able to tell people that I have a "real" career, not cooking with my right hand and translating with my left?

Anyway, just wanted to share this with you guys, my old and dear virtual colleagues. I'm not saying good-bye or anything, I don't think there's ever a good reason for leaving this very dear community, so expect me to hang around here for a while longer!

A change is always very interesting.

I love giving away that I am a translator - a mysterious profession!

Good for you! Jul 28, 2008

Hi Nesrin,

If you're so excited about this new job, I think you're making the right choice. I'm sure you'll enjoy sharing your love of languages with the students.

Glad to know you're not leaving this community, you would be missed.

Good luck, all the best, see you around!

But don't make us miss you for too long. Even if you may not want to see anything translation-related for a while (which will be only a while, I promiseicon_smile.gif), we would want to see your postings here in the Off-Topic forum. (Aah! And we have a Teaching Languages forum, tooicon_wink.gif)

Wishing you all the best!

I suppose this means saying goodbye to working in your jammies for a while...
(Mind you, continuing to do so could contribute to increased student attendance if you didicon_wink.gif )
Best of luck, let us know how you get on!
