In the month of June, I’ve had a lot of steno firsts (thus still no time to blog freely). I’ve had someone who was visually impaired bring in a guide dog as part of an examination; a cross-examination where the questioning lawyer appeared via video conference; the same audio in that cross-ex cutting out multiple times which resulted in a readback (but otherwise the audio quality was crystal clear and it was like they were in the same room); my very first rough draft ordered and delivered by evening of the same day; multiple overtime jobs out of the blue (with one that went up to 5:45pm — my longest one yet); a lawyer who consulted my realtime screen for a readback because we had to go back to a spot five minutes ago that he wanted to refer to; a Mandarin interpreter who was absolutely flawless in interpreting and translating the proceedings; and a proceeding suddenly adjourned because the building lost power — we resumed after what appeared to be a ‘mandatory’ lunch break XD. A lot of steno firsts! 😀 And June is still not over either!
Update: Another first at a new undisclosed location this week. As well, my very first five-day workweek!
