You know, lately, as much as I would have loved to blog about steno and share photos from different courtrooms or board rooms, I just haven’t been able to :/. When I am on site, it’s the same one I’ve been to but mostly because the last 3 weeks have consisted of me working from home. Don’t get me wrong, I do like working from home sometimes but not 3 weeks in a row (I was supposed to be on a 3-day exam this week but it got rescheduled unfortunately). (I’m blogging about this because this is supposed to be a steno blog too but I can’t really share much of my steno stories if I don’t have any good ones :S).
The past weeks, I worked on the Hansard for the Legislative Assembly in the Northwest Territories (from home). I also did a Consent & Capacity Board hearing (from home) for the first time with a Croatian interpreter too. There were two short conference calls (from home) too.
Working from home is every bit as glamorous as it feels (ha). You really get to work in your jammies with messy hair and overflowing desk and not have to worry about anyone seeing you in that state while the other parties may or may not be on site in a courtroom. Working at home is best for days when the weather outside is mucky (like rainstorms or too much snow). However, it can get annoying if it means not being able to step outside of the house for days.
The upside about working from home from a blogger’s standpoint is that I save so much time from not having to commute that I get to blog and catch up feverishly to my backlogs. #yay (which is why you’ve been seeing so many from me lately.)
Another upside is I’ve been doing a lot of transcripts from home and getting familiar with new layouts for it.
Hopefully I will have better steno stories next week. #comeon #whereisthework
