Happy with the amount of work Wish I were able to translate *faster* at the same quality though... I'm working on life outside the translation sphere this year though.
Happy New Year to all!

I have only 4 little but feasible wishes:

1. More work at better rates.
2. Getting my creative works published/produced.
3. Being able to travel more.
4. Good health and happiness.

Or am I being greedy here?

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!

Not at all greedy! Wonderfully optimistic, in a feasible sort of way.

I'll second those wishes/goals, and add "regular" to the work bit...

Good health (both physical and emotional) tops my list. It is too easy to forget how important that is...

For myself, continuing good health, having recently finished a 2-year treatment for liver problems. More or less status quo as far as work is concerned, and I also hope to pass my Spanish driving test for both car and motorcycles.

For the rest of the world, that we can all somehow get along a bit better...

All the best for 2013!

Hi from eski in Acapulco Jan 1, 2013

For 2012 I'd like to add at least two more full-time members to the Spídersilk Collaborative, which at the present includes five very dedicated team members, incuding my daughter and yours truly.
Goals: sufficient organization to complete over 2 million source word translations and 150 MP3 & MP4 transcription project assignments.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

I'd like to:

Get back to my surfing weight (!)
Move back to North Wales, preferably Beaumaris
Buy another yacht
And a bigger, faster motorbike..
And of course, find The One!

A man can dream..

Better capacity to match working and family loads and optimization of my spare time, in general.

Serenity for my whole family.
