Hallow X October: Well, It’s Not Over

October has been all smooth

until i received this task

which i took as a challenge

*

in terms of all three

volume, content, deadline

triple trouble

*

so i got a whole 190 pages

translated in 10 days

on top of my daily tasks

*

i.e.

sleeping for 3-4 hours a day

no life but all work

and managed to meet the deadline

*

but i knew it was not over

because i simply know

and for the first week of Nov

I have been sleeping through

whenever I don’t have task

*

and yesterday i even slept

as early as 8 PM

waking up to find that

the nightmare has bounced back

*

they requested a

complete review of

the entire file

expecting me to spend two days

(zero compensation, of course)

because quality issues were flagged

(in less than a page)

*

and it feels like

it doesn’t pay off at all

having need to go through

sickness and sleep disorder

*

and i gonna spend another night

staying up until morning

going too the content

i am already quite sick of

(have already spent 10 hours today

and i am barely half way through)

*

but trying to convince myself that

this is something positive

because i have managed to

challenged something new

*

the fact is real

mega corp on the other side

of the scale

versus powerless ant

on the opposite

*

with another huge corp

between the both

who has better negotiation power

*

anyway

still glad that

i am a free and easy ant

if that makes me feel better

*

it’s not about the money3

*

p.s.

speaking of October

the total sale was pretty not bad

this particular project

i spent the entire page talking about

made up 25% of it

*

and i kinda calculated

how much i need to generate

in Q4 of 2017

in order to be on par with 2016

*

and i actually managed to

actually filled up

50% of my target for Q4

in October alone

*

it doesn’t mean

i can chill for Nov and Dec

but well at least

there is less pressure and

*

i can spend a less worry-some

10-day vacation back in China

during early December

*

these days

it has been seriously creepy

i don’t even feel like

talking to anyone

well that’s usual

but not even the usual persons

*

i don’t even feel like

blogging and doing

some other stuffs that

i used to cherish

*

so i hope to

put an end to this

nightmarish task

like seriously a full-stop

having spent 2 full days

reviewing my own work

*

and this Dec trip

seems to be

the only thing

i look forward to

*

Mad Season / Matchbox Twenty
