Can’t Wait to End: June-on

the month ended bad

generally bad throughout the month

on top of a seriously painful incident

not forgetting the earlier frustrating case

2018/06/19: Frustrated, Max!

*

was concentrating on a task

like seriously I was

and was sent a “small” file for quotation

*

i actually took the trouble to

highlight whatever segments

which required translation and

quoted accordingly

*

it was a “small” file so

i actually didn’t start as

i was juggling with some other tasks

until the person asked about the progress

*

given the price quoted

i estimated that i will take

30 minutes the max

*

then something didn’t feel right

looked like there were some segments

i overlooked and didn’t highlight

*

i am usually quite okay for that

if there were only a few

then i realized that

the file was way bigger than imagined

*

what the fuck was i doing then

i did look through the file

and what the fuck happened

*

so i quoted a higher price

of course with disapproval

and an 1 hour extension

since apparently

i won’t able to finish on time

*

it took me more than 4 hours

to finish a 50 bucks task

working non-stop

almost feeling the numb

on my fingers

*

i had doubt of course

malicious ignorance

also known as “malignorance”

about whether the other party

and the end party have in mind

about the length of the file

*

then again

no-one else but myself to be blamed

as i was the one who provided

the quotation in the first place

*

and due to the delay

i was forced to work until

1 AM on a Friday evening

just to finish other tasks

which happened to due

on the same day

*

that kind of FML feeling

like never before

*

when i am (almost) always

dealing with some

frustrating cases on a Friday

while others are happily

enjoying their TGIF mood

*

and this month recorded

the lowest sales in 18 months

i have imagined the worse

*

it was a long but not really fruitful month

and when something better

finally came in

i actually messed them up

by missing email or

giving the wrong quotation

*

anyway

2 new work-places unlocked this month

(1) Chinese courtyard, Lijiang

haha this was when i missed the email

because my phone was charging in the room

Lijiang Old City

*

(2) Rooftop with mountain-

partial-lake-view plus sunrise, Dali

in fact, it was my final day in Dali

kinda regretted that i didn’t come up earlier

Dali Old City
