Working For The WeekendPosted: July 8, 2014
The school year might be over, but my work is not. Other than my usual daily script reading and translating, this year I’m also a proctor at the school’s entrance exam (colleges and universities in Vietnam still do entrance exams, it’s a really big deal). It takes place this Thursday, which means on Thursday I get to spend three hours doing nothing but staring at those terrified kids as they’re trying to write an essay about films and stuff. Fun times.
And on the weekend, I have a filmmaking workshop – it’s a 12-week crash course, and at the end of the course you make a short film. I’m teaching the writing part of it, and it’s quite fun. The people who take the workshop are all beginners, so they are really enthusiastic, the classroom is much more relaxed since there is no grade, and because the course is so short, you have to keep a tight deadline, so everybody turns in their work on time.
As fun as the workshop is, though, I still can’t wait to be done with it. Only two more weeks to go, and then I’m going on a week-long trip! So excited!!! Hopefully I can finish translatingby that time too, so I can travel with a clear conscience.
