Relocate

I’m inspired by today’s Daily Prompt word: Relocate.

Why am I inspired? Because I want to relocate. As a lover of the English language, the first country that comes to my mind is the U.S. Unfortunately I would need sponsorship to work there.

I will be honest with you. I have an issue with the country I live in: France. No jobs (or at least, in my field) where I live and everyone knows the French’s economy isn’t the best. As stated in my resume, I had an e-commerce store in the past. But it was very difficult to keep my head above the water with all the taxes and the French’s shipping costs. It had to stop. And I wanted a change.

I’m interested in traveling to more countries. I’m interested in living in a different country. I want to meet new people. I will continue learning from my experiences.

“Willing to relocate“? For me, the answer is definitely yes!

What does age mean to you?

Today’s Daily Prompt word: Age.

What does age mean to you? Wisdom? Being closer to retirement? How do you feel about your age? Are you happy to be older or, on the contrary, younger? How do you see yourself in 5, 10 or 20 years?

I’m in my mid-thirties. When I was in my twenties, the idea of reaching 40 or 50 scared me. Now? Not so much. I don’t feel old. I don’t feel young either. I’ve always looked younger than my age. I should be happy about it, I guess.

Sparkle

Today’s Daily Prompt word is Sparkle.

I’m not waiting for the Christmas holidays, to be honest. It’s not that exciting to me. We rarely do anything anyway. Of course, there’s this sparkle in the eyes of children when they look at the Christmas lights or when they open their presents.

There’s a sparkle in my eyes when I look at my adorable cats. When I read a captivating book. Or when I successfully draw something that looks nice. There always will be something, someday, that will leave a sparkle in your eyes.

So, what is it for you?

Why I decided to become a Freelance Proofreader.

In this first post, I’m going to talk about why I decided to become a Freelance Proofreader.

I previously worked in various fields, but the jobs had very less to do with what I had studied in school/high school: languages.

I have a passion for foreign languages. I speak English and Spanish (but to be honest, my knowledge of Spanish is limited). I plan to learn Greek (for personal reasons) and Italian. I think, the more languages I know, the better.

My native language is French. I almost always write in English but have fewer occasions to speak it. At some point, I even had pen pals I wrote to. Due to things getting busier in real life, I stopped sending handwritten letters.

That was the small story. Now, why a Freelance Proofreader?

Well, I believe I have the skills to get the job done. I can proofread and/or translate any document from French to English (or English to French). I can manage my work time. I am a very organized person and someone who pays attention to detail.

I know this will be a lot of work but I’m ready for it!
