Hello, WAH family! Today I wanted to share opportunities with you for Telephone interpreting and a few other interesting opportunities I’ve yet to share.
The new laptop is working out okay so far, so no complaints there! I found it for a steal at my neighborhood Target for only $199. (Chromebook). Just thought I’d throw that in there for anyone searching for an affordable computer.
I like to let you know when I am trying new opportunities to inform you of the processes and it’s also good to have someone else to complain to! Much success!
