This is so cool! My practicum site from last quarter called to let me know that there is going to be a conference being held starting Wednesday and going for like 9 days that they really need interpreters! At first I was like "Wow, that's going to be a lot of practicum hours!" Then she started saying about how she was going to pay all of the interpreters and I told her that I couldn't get paid AND get practicum hours... so I'm doing half and half! I'm getting paid in the afternoons and getting practicum hours at the night seminars. Guess how much I'm getting paid an hour...... $25!!!!!! YAY!!!! What's even better is that Tina (my teacher) will be there, so she can fill out my evaluation for practicum as well. I really hope that this goes well because I am so excited!
Okay, anyways, I just needed to get that out, because this is the coolest thing ever!
PS: I am in my last quarter of practicum (of 3), half way through the quarter. Just so nobody thinks I'm like in Interpreting 1 or something and getting paid.
