No unique blog posts for a while

Just as I thought I was going to finally resurface this weekend for some sunshine and no transcripts on my plate, I’ve been dumped with a big slew of a back-order from last summer.  *shakes fists*    Continue reading

For the first time in my steno career, I’ve been inundated with transcripts for more than two months… I feel like I haven’t stopped editing or scoping transcripts without a full week in between to rest or have nothing at all Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Place in the World

 Toronto boardrooms

Toronto, Canada. April 2018

Steno is on my mind this morning as I had just posted a great video explaining it on my social media channels.  I’m an introvert so I really like watching others and observing what goes on in the world.  At work, this is exactly what my “place in the world” is.  I sit at the head of the table and I watch both sides of legal counsel duke it out.  I don’t need to say anything.  I simply watch, listen, and take down everything they say verbatim without judgment.  My place in the world is a role as a Continue reading

King’s Noodle Restaurant in Chinatown Toronto

King's Noodle Restaurant wonton noodles

King’s Noodle Restaurant located at 296 Spadina Ave in Toronto

April 13, 2018:  We had a second dinner at King’s Noodle Restaurant (富豪麵家 ) in Chinatown after Otto’s Berlin Döner.  I had been to this Chinese restaurant in autumn 2013 and fondly remembered their wonton noodle soups that were tasty and very affordable.

We walked in on a Friday evening and got a table immediately.  There were so many other people here too.  It really is a popular spot for traditional Chinese food Continue reading
