My new PC, which I've had for less than a month, is already malfunctioning. It's suddenly become very slow (even slower than my old one) and refuses to open programs, telling me that they all contain 'errors'.

I wouldn't mind so much except that it's a pain to keep backing up my files. -_-

In other news, I have been applying for jobs left right and centre, both temporary and permanent. At the moment, there are two language jobs that I'm applying for, apart from the work placement in France. One is a part time post in France, just outside Paris (PARIS!), translating IT documents for a company; the other is a permanent placement here in the UK in Buckinghamshire, proof-reading translations from French and Spanish, with an opportunity to become an in-house translation.

The thing is, I don't know what to wish for. I've finally got myself a little organised with regards to exercise and things and I'm going to phone up my friend's driving instructor and get that part of my life organised. If I get the job in France or Buckinghamshire, that means everything I've got here will have to be changed or put on hold: but both of them would be really good for my career (the permanent job especially). Any advice?

In other news, still finishing December, although I have managed to write one ficlet for January and have another one in mind. I don't why I always end up tormenting Haruka in my stories, but it seems to be a pattern. I must be more like Michiru than I thought.

Hmm, I'm not sure. It kind of sounds like into, though. But hey, you could always write in and ask! It's a little side money! ^^

Then there isn't much point, because you only translate into your mother tongue.

Then again, there probably are some people out there who can do both, so a clause is necessary in order to embrace such an occurence. ^_^

BTW--Cute icon!<3

Oh yes, there are bilingual people (lucky devils).

Thanks! I've read all the Narnia books and I loved the film (but I'm faithful to the BBC adaptations).

I remember watching the BBC adaptions as a child on PBS. I have it taped somewhere, too. I thought the film was brilliant. They adapted it so well. I was suprised at how true they were to the book, and unlike many movies, I understood why they made the changes they did. The changes worked and built suspense/etc. for the film version and helped people not familiar with the books. Overall, I was highly satisfied.
