Common Sense

Did you ever sit in these depos and think, "Where the hell did the common sense on these people go?"

I mean like the man who watches porno at work and then wonders why he is getting fired.
Like the woman who says my boss told me to forge the signature.

I feel that sometimes some of these things can be avoided by using your brain.

It drives me absolutely crazy. Maybe it's me.

Day Four - and there is a clearing in the sky

Well, I am currently scheduled for a 9:30 am video & realtime job on Monday. I'm pretty confident that I will make some money on this one even if it cancels at the last minute. The agency doesn't open until 8 a.m. So I doubt they can call me at this point and tell me it's canceled and not have to pay a cancellation fee. whoo-hoo.

On to another topic. Realtime. I often find that attorneys order a realtime reporter and then don't use my services. I'm not complaining, but I think it's… Continue

Time is flying

The other day I was thinking about the passage of time.

It seems like it took forever to go from kindergarten through senior year of high school. The first 18 years of my life just took their sweet time, at a nice, gentle pace.

The next 20 years have FLOWN by!! How can the first 18 years go by so gingerly, and the next 20 are gone in the blink of an eye!

POOF! FLASH! gone…

Day Three - When will the drought end.

Well, this is my third day in a row of cancellations. I'm all caught up with transcripts until I get stuff back from my scopist. What am I going to do with myself? I went out to lunch and got my haircut yesterday.

Should I work on my realtime? That would be productive. Nope!!

I could spend hours on the Internet stalking my friends on CSRnation. That idea has some merit. Nah. I don't want to scare my friends away.

Take a long hot bath and enjoy the slow time. Now,… Continue

Gotta love those last-minute cancellations. But at least I'm getting paid a cancellation fee.

Does it seem like more attorneys are canceling than before? Someone should keep track of something like that. Of course, if you're keeping track of something like that, that means you're not working enough and you need to get out there and call some agencies or attorneys.

Still rainy. It's always better to have cancellations on rainy days. When you're looking out your window and… Continue

It's raining.

It's raining, it's pouring. The old man is snoring.

I love rain!!! I love it especially when I don't have to drive to downtown LA in the rain and I'm not stuck in traffic.

I love it when I'm at home sitting in my house in my comfy clothes, all caught up w/my transcripts.

Scopist/Proofreader on Eclipse version 4.1

Hi Everybody, I've been a court reporter for 13 yrs doing criminal depos in Miami-Dade Co. I would like to retire and start scoping for other reporters. I've been scoping for another reporter from California since Dec. of last year. I need one to two more reporters. I will miss being a reporter, but I love being home and transcribing. I would love to help you with your insanity, as I've been there for many years.

I just enrolled in scoping school

Today I sent my enrollment form and paypal payment to Montana for Internet Scoping School, based in Montana. Soon I will be getting my learning materials for my first course, "Quick & Easy Punctuation". I'm excited and a little nervous. This will be what I hope to be a long and eventful road to CR/Captioning.
