Two thousand and twelve as a leap year is celebrated by Google with a frog doodle as they also give honor to Italian composer Gioachinno Rossini.
Hope they find this post and update it lol! 😉
Ten years. That’s how long I’ve been in Vienna and how long I’ve been trying to master German. Unfortunately, German has far different structuring than English and Tagalog (Filipino). Even noun genders are identified differently from how I was used to knowing them in English and Spanish. I’ve mentioned a lot of times how I wanted to work as a translator and so far I’ve finished some jobs that I wasn’t too proud of because for the first one, I needed help doing it. First experience on the job, they say, and it’s somehow bound to have imperfection. That’s that or just me justifying it. The second job was way better but it didn’t go as expected and my self-esteem is still too hurt I don’t want to talk about it. *sniff* The following jobs were smaller but I did better I think…
Anyway, looking back to 4 years ago (above post was published in November 2008) I’m proud that my hope to become a translator has finally begun. After finishing my courses, that’s in German, Spanish and translation studies I plan to further my Japanese knowledge. Also, I need to work on more translation jobs albeit small and build up my resume. Perhaps and hopefully it won’t take me another 3 or 4 years to update this post. 🙂
That quote actually goes “Dad – a son’s first hero, a daughter’s first love.” Since only son2 is in the photo I cut the last part out but I hopefully get to use it sometime when I have a photo of only hubby and daughter.
Moms and Dads play different roles in a child’s life and I believe how a dad treats his kids would define that role. I’ve said before that my kids tend to be closer to their dads because I am strict when it comes to certain things. No matter, I’m happy that my daughter and my boys have that close and fun relationship with their dad…nothing’s more priceless seeing them like that.
