One of my part-time jobs is doing tape transcriptions. I currently have a job for a local professor. I usually find his projects interesting but this one … not so much.
The main reason I’m struggling to complete this project is the speaker has an accent I am not understanding. On top of that, he speaks at breakneck speed. When I must keep stopping, backing up and playing the tape again and again, it gets hard to maintain any interest in finishing the project.
But my completion deadline is fast approaching and I must discipline myself and get this done. I just wish it didn’t make me so nervous.
