On being a transcriptionist

I left behind the working-in-an-office bit nearly 10 years ago. Wouldn't go back if you paid me four times what I'm earning now (I mention that because I was offered that not that long ago and turned it down). Instead, I eke a living out transcribing audio files, but I absolutely love it.

I live frugally because I have to, but it also fits with my personal philosophy of minimising consumerism and making do with what I have.

Every day is different in my job and I learn new things from the fascinating and varied research I get to listen to. It makes me a professional fly-on-the-wall type of person, and that's just perfect.


  1. Wow! What a great job!
    Apart from having a job that sounds facinating I really like your perspective on life!

  2. Thanks Alex. I always feel incredibly lucky to be working and living this lifestyle. Never a dull moment!
