2016 New Year’s resolutions – Rockstar Translations

Posted by Valentina Ambrogio in Rockstar Translations 06 Jan 2016

Who doesn’t love compiling lists? I certainly do! Last year I wrote down a list of resolutions for 2015, and I must say that it turned out to be a very good thing to do, especially when – last week – I sat down and reviewed the past year and realised that I actually did pretty good. I gathered my thoughts in a blog post – you can read here >>> 2015 in review

Now it’s time to look ahead. I already know it’s going to be tougher in every way, but I am perfectly ok with it. I’ve been a full time freelancer only for four months, so a lot of careful thinking and planning awaits me. My resolutions this year are pretty ordinary, and they are:

Merry Xmas-Social Media Keeping up the good work with my blog;

Managing to keep afloat – financially speaking  – as a full time freelancer living in Rome;

Travelling – Italy will do!

Getting the most out of the Linguistic and Cultural Representation in Audiovisual Translation international conference held in Rome (February) – anyone else coming?

Being healthier and happy with my life;

Going to bed every night with a smile on my face;

 Finding new clients and working again with old ones.

Yes, my plan is to play on the safe side, but I think it’s OK for this “pendulum” to swing this way.

And you? Any special plan for 2016?
